Weekend in Paris 2

Paris day 2: While my day 1 was spent outdoors at the start of the day, my day 2 in Paris was spent mostly indoors at the Museé d´Orsay which ended with ¨an out of the city¨ trip to visit the French monarchs´ burial site.

My getup:

Something floral and very light because it was sunny ( too sunny in fact) in Paris.

 floral top- Promod, shorts- local store

Panacotta in berry topping:

The hubz dessert in this cute French restaurant which we ate last year. Ooops, we´re becoming regular patrons of this resto. The panacotta was delish and loving the heart-shaped dessert plate too! ;)

Crow perched on the rail of Metro entrance at Eglise Pantin:

My first photograph of the day. Surprisingly, this crow or a black dove? ( I don´t know, hehe!) was very tame. He barely even moved his head when I took this photograph!

Saint Denis (front):

I´d like to say that the architecture of this church/ burial site for the French monarchs is awesome.

Saint Denis(back):

The back is even more spectacular. It´s just that the town wasn´t really nice. More of neglected. if you think that everything in Paris is nice and romantic, no it isn´t. There are even some parts of the metro that are very, very old and neglected aesthetically. But don´t let that discourage you from visiting Paris. Let´s just say that this is the ¨not the most romantic side¨ of  this beautiful city. After all, nothing´s perfect. ;)

Resting between Asia and Africa ( Museé d´Orsay):

Finally, after almost half a day of oggling at the works Monet, Manet, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh, Gaugin, etc., I got tired and rested for a while.

knitted cardigan- Zara

After looking at these photos, I´ve noticed a trend. Do you know what it is? Hint: colors ;) I still have a lot of photos. These are just a few of the whole bulk. Come back for more! :)

Happy Sunday, dears!

Oh no matter how many times I go to Paris, I always want to go back and discover more. Musee D'Orsay was such a dream for me because Monet is one of my favourite artists. Looking forward to more of your posts on Paris :)
