I've only ever visited Paris in the summer time, and it's been my dream to come back right at the turn of fall when the leaves start to crisp and color. The foliage against the picturesque cityscape couldn't be summed up more than in these photos, which we were lucky enough to capture on one of two beautiful days we experienced before the rain started. There's something extra romantic about walking around the city right before a sudden downpour— and even more romantic cozying up in a tiny cafe to wait it out.

The dress has been in my closet for awhile now, waiting for the perfect opportunity to come out and play, and as soon as I booked my flight over, I knew exactly where I wanted to photograph it. I found out that it works surprisingly well with Converse, and I can't wait to pull it out in a few months for the holiday parties ahead.

The Palais-Royal was one of our more frequent haunts on this trip. Aside from housing one of our favorite cafes, Cafe Kitsuné, the surrounding area was full of amazing (mostly Asian) restaurants— so much so that we made the trip back at least once a day for several days straight to try each place. My favorites were Nest for banh mi burgers and lychee lemonade (hands down the best meal I had the entire trip— be sure to stop by Télescope Cafe a few doors down as well), Kunitoraya for udon, Sapporo and Kotteri Ramen Naritake for ramen, and of course Claus for the brunch spread.

Checking in from Paris! As some of you may know from Instagram, David and I have been in Paris for a few days now. I've been so fortunate to have been able to experience Paris twice in the last three years, and even more fortunate to finally experience my favorite city with my favorite person for a third time. We've both been saving like crazy this year to make this trip possible, and creating an itinerary along the way to motivate us even more. I'd love to know what you guys do to save up for traveling!

I'm going a bit out of order with these outfit photos— the first few days we were met with beautiful, warm weather which quickly turned into cold, biting wind and rain. This scarf was an impromptu buy, and it has been saving me since I definitely didn't pack enough warm clothes! Stay tuned for my outfits from our warmer days here.
