Skirt, Flats, Bracelet: Thrifted.
Lipstick in MAC's 'Lady Danger.'
Hello everyone ♥
Just like every other girl, I dream of going to Paris. I want to wear monochromatic outfits with stripes and simple, delicate jewelery. Spectator flats on my feet and a butterschotch colored trench coat that keeps the rain off of me when I walk through the rain drenched streets. Bright, poppy red lipstick with my lips perfectly outlined and shaped. I'd like to wear a single strand of pearls and have my hair curled; and in my dreams it would actually not come undone.
I think about walking those cobblestone streets at night like they do in the movies. You know, where the only light is the street lamps and there's this eery glow beneath the surmounting fog. I would walk by myself, swinging my satchel with buckles, being the happiest girl in the world.
Oh. And I would go to street cafes where I hear that they only have super strong espresso. I'd probably be bouning off the walls. But I'd like to think it would be the best cup of coffee I've ever tasted and that I would take my time savoring it. Partly because I spent an arm and a leg for it and partly becuse I would want to spend time sipping it and people watching Listening to angery conversation, funny conversations, sad conversations, love converations. All in French. It would be wonderful to walk among the streets and stop at the vendors, smelling fresh flowers and picking up ripe fruit and vegetables for dinner. And trying a macaroon for the first time. Those little, pastel colored treats everyone is so keen on. I'd love to try a real one. But I feel like I won't like it. I hope I'm wrong.
And I would stop and look at the Eiffle Tower from a distance. Smiling at all of the couples there; whether American, French, or any other nationality. Love is love, you know? I would stare up at the momument in amazement, thinking..." I'm in Paris. Paris, France."
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. I updated my store if you're interested!
