The first 3 days in Paris were full of sightseeing: the Louvre (highly recommend!), the Eiffel Tour, Notre Dame, Montmatre, Moulin Rouge, Arc de Triomphe, and people watching on the Champs-Élysées, just to name a few. Unfortunately the contents of our camera were erased from the first two days so I don't have any photos to share (booooo). Yesterday's post was actually day #3 in Paris, and on day #4, we ventured outside of the city to see Versailles. If you've ever seen Marie Antoinette the movie then you might be just a *tad* obsessed with Versailles like I am. My favorite part was THE hallway (picture below) but every detail of the palace was absolutely gorgeous. It's located about 20 minutes outside of Paris in an adorable suburb also called Versailles. We walked through a farmer's market there, and stopped to sample a local bakery where I had my first macaron (amazeballs)! My first cousin grew up in Kansas like I did, but moved to France more than 25 years ago. She joined us for the trip along with her son and we had an amazing time catching up on family stuff and enjoying the sites! Definitely one of my favorite days on the trip!
About my outfit: we didn't really get an close-up of this outfit, but you can see a very similar rendition and a close-up in this post. Despite being overcast, it was an unusually hot and humid day. I wound up not ever needing a jacket, and even my boots were a little too hot. These are my most comfortable shoes though so it was nice to give my tootsies a rest that day! :-) Have you ever been to Paris? What were your favorite sites?
