Winter in Paris | Part 1: Babushka lvl. 99

Bonjour!

We were in Paris last week (18-22 December) to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and it was actually my first time being there! I always thought Paris as one of the most overrated cities in the world, but now i admit it is indeed that beautiful. And romantic. Oui?

Before going, I already knew that it would be freezing over there. Hence I brought along three different coats with me (besides the fact that those coats are my favourite) and of course I wanted to make good winter outfit pictures! Kudos to my #instaHusband for his talent 😀

I was so happy that I also brought my Russian scarves along because seriously, it was that cold that I could get headache easily. The scarf is very warm since it was made of silk and wool and I didn’t care if I would look like a babushka (Russian granny) :p The pattern and the colours are also incredibly vibrant and beautiful, I regret for not buying other colours when I was in Russia 😦

We really enjoyed walking around the city aimlessly, I believe that is the best way to explore a city. I love the streets in Paris so much!

The bag and the shoes I wore were mentioned in my previous post here.

The black coat was from River Island. Speaking of which, I am happy that RV offers a wide variants of size. I picked the smallest size and it fits me like a dream! It is always a challenge to find coats in my size here in Holland. I find RV coats are of good quality compared to other high-street fashion brands out there, while still being within a reasonable price range. But unfortunately, they don’t sell this coat anymore on their webshop so I can’t give you the link 😦

On that day we went to visit Notre Dame de Paris.

And for the dinner we had a typical French winter dish (please correct me if I’m wrong) bœuf à la Bourguignonne.

And creme brûlée for dessert 😀

The river Seine was incredibly pretty that night (or every night, obviously).
