bonjour paris!

I've been in Paris only a few hours, and I'm already 100% content. This is my happy place. You know, the place you dream about that brings you complete relaxation and swirls of happiness in your stomach? This is it. 

I lived here in college. 

I fell in love.

I come back every year to get my fill, and I never want to leave.

Something about the winding cobblestone streets, the enchanting lights, the view from Montmartre at night, the cafés, oh and the shopping.

My mission this time around is to NOT buy this bag. Seriously. I want it. I must resist. 

Look at how perfect it is.




But let's play a little game.

If I did lose my marbles, fall into a LARGE sum of money, and turn into a Parisian woman...

Which color should I buy? 

I'm torn between black and nude. 

Until then...bisous!

Lucky you to be in Paris! As for the bag....nude! I love the black (and own more black bags than I should) but I think the nude you can carry year-round, while the black looks a little....well, black in summer months. I hope you find that large sum of cash!!

Ahhhh Paris is my happy place too. An absolute slice of heaven. And well... since I have the black, I'd have to say black. It just felt the most versatile to me!

Paris is magical. I can't wait to go back - soon! And as far as a dreamy Celine goes - I would go with the black!

I haven't been back to Paris in 4 years and am itching to go! I would vote for black- versatile & won't get dirty.

Paris! I am so jealous. I would go for the black, you would never regret buying that colour, it goes with everything and that bag would be a staple in your wardrobe for years!

Hope you're having a blast overseas!

I love the nude, and I'm not usually attracted to nude bags. And I love everything about that last photo. I want that skirt.

Enjoy Paris!!

Crazy jealous, I love Paris so much. I'm liking the brown, but i'll say nude, no black. Heck, toss a coin, you can't lose. xo

I am a new follower and already I adore your blog. This bag is number one on my wishlist. I love all the colours so I'm afraid I'm not much help with choosing a colour option : )

Have a fabulous time in Paris, I look forward to lots of Parisian style posts x
