Thomas and I celebrated my birthday in Paris last month and it was truly special to be there around Christmas. December in Paris really is next level…there are lights everywhere, every store front is decorated to the nines, and you can just feel the Christmas cheer/excitement. I would 100% recommend visiting Paris in December – it’s so festive and romantic!
We stayed warm by popping in and out of cute cafes, bakeries, hotel lobbies, and museums. We ate at Hotel Costes (my favorite spot in Paris), about 3 times haha. I could not resist the mushroom pasta and the martinis! Oh and their bread and butter is TO DIE FOR. Despite visiting Paris several times, I’m embarrassed to admit I had never been to the Louvre museum! The lines always scared me away. Thomas insisted that we go, and I am SO glad that he did – it was magnificent. And best of all, if you buy tickets in advance, you can go through a special line and skip the madness!
I wore this gorgeous faux fur coat with my favorite Wolford turtleneck bodysuit for the day. I paired it with a vintage scarf (also love this one and this one) that I picked up at a consignment store years ago and couldn’t decide whether or not I liked it on for the pictures LOL. Which look do you prefer – with or without?!
