For those who don't know any French, the title says "My Return to Paris," which is what we're talking all about today. It was an overall bon weekend and I was so happy to return to my favorite city for the second time. Today I'm mostly going to be sharing photos with you as I don't really have much to say. I feel like a picture is worth a million words in this case.
Since I was travelling with Lily, we visited most of the tourist attractions. I had seen them all already, but they were just as good the second time around, if not better because I had freedom of choice (sorry Bard, but all that homework at the Louvre just wasn't fun). We made stops at Notre Dame, Saint-Chapelle, Angelina's, Ladurée, Musée du Louvre, Tour Eiffel and Arc de Triomphe. Basic tourists right here.
Am I the only one who sings The Hunchback of Notre Dame soundtrack in my head when I see Notre Dame?
Doing our civic duty and taking a selfie like tourists do.
Random fountain that I thought looked nice
Sugar cravings are hitting me hard while looking at these pictures.
Musée du Louvre
Did you even go to the Louvre if you didn't take a picture of Mona Lisa? (P.S. A selfie was also taken but is on Lily's phone.)

Me to Adam 80 percent of the time

Winged Victory of Samothrace
This was my favorite outfit of the weekend: Sleeveless Turtleneck Dress (which now comes in black... why do they always come out with a black version after I buy it?) and Minimal Moto Jacket (similar here) both from the Who What Wear for Target line and my beloved pair of oxblood Cammi boots from Dolce Vita (similar here). To carry all of my generally unnecessary items, I brought my Longchamp Large Le Pilage Tote.
Obligatory selfie. Wearing ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip in Hutch, btw.
Very chill day in Who What Wear for Target's Crop Flare Denim and Minimal Moto again, same bag, some lace-up flats (similar here) that kept coming untied and (GASP) a red bodysuit from H&M.
Arc de Triomphe
Now for some miscellaneous photos:
Place de la Concorde
Jardin des Tuileries
L'as du Fallafel that we walked half an hour to eat.
It was hard to say au revoir to Paris again, but I will hopefully be back again soon. I didn't think that I would return within two years of my original trip, but it happened. Maybe Adam will take me to Paris for a graduation present next summer or something...
So far I've visited Dublin and Paris. Next up on the agenda? A frightfully exciting Halloween weekend in Barcelona. I just came back from Paris this morning, and I leave for Barcelona on Thursday. Quite a quick turnaround, but my mission is to squeeze in as much time in each city as I can. It's helpful that I have four day weekends every weekend and finish class at 1:00 p.m. on Thursdays. Merci beaucoup England for your very relaxed school schedule.
Today I got to be the dress up doll for my styling class. My fellow classmates styled looks of new fall releases from British stores Next and River Island. I really don't have much to say in this post, but I wanted to share the styling with you, my lovely readers, and let you know where all these great pieces came from!

I hoped you enjoyed seeing some styling by other fashion students here in England! This weekend, I'll actually be saying "Bonjour, Paris," because I'll be spending the weekend there!
