When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.

Teddy Bears in Paris

Something Magical Appeared in the City

The 13th Arrondissement of Paris is an area that largely stands as uncharted territory on the tourist map. Although this neighbourhood even despite of all of its charming streets and quirky urban art works and murals has avoided the tourist invasion, this quartier is experiencing an invasion of its own but on a much more cute and cuddly level.

#AD GRADUATION +THE PERFECT OCCASION WEAR THIS SUMMER

Class of PrettyLittleThing

EDITED3

Summer is here which means that the time for champagne and celebrations during warm nights has arrived. For today’s post I teamed up with PrettyLittleThing to show you some amazing occasion wear that is perfect for weddings, classy soirées and also graduations. Their graduation store has so many beautiful dresses to choose from and  I couldn’t be more thrilled to show you guys a few of my favourites.

Graduation is unfortunately not celebrated in France and it’s something that now, living away from Ireland I’m pretty sad to be missing out on. The way it works here is that you get your degree in the mail and that’s that. There’s no big celebration where we wear the robe, the hats and do the photographs while holding the degree but that doesn’t mean that we should skip out on the chance to dress up every now and again!

Notre-Dame and the square surrounding it may be inaccessible after the fire that happened in April but that doesn’t mean that you should skip out on visiting the quartier of Saint Michel next time you find yourself in Paris.

What is it that makes Montmartre so charming?

Though it may have a rather sordid past, the architectural beauty of Paris’ former red light district is undeniable.

Pigalle is an area in Paris where pretty much anything goes. Located right in the middle of the hill at Montmartre, this quartier was once the playground of artists and musicians alike all throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the biggest names in western art and culture such as Picasso, Renoir, Ernest Hemingway and Van Gogh frequented the many local cafés there including La Nouvelle Athènes and the world renowned Le Chat Noir. It was the district where Rimbaud frequented with his lover Paul Verlaine, where Edith Paif sang and of course where brothels and cabarets were commonplace.

Out of all the culture that exists across the area of Pigalle, The Moulin Rouge is the most show-stopping monument of all. With it being the birthplace of cabaret and the epicentre of burlesque, I just had to stop by last time I was strolling around Montmartre.

A Day At The Opera Photo Diary

The Phantom of The Opera

opera1

Hello my lovelies! Welcome back to another Parisian adventure here on LaDameWhoFellToEarth. Today’s post is a short little photo diary from last weekend when I visited the Opera House or, The Palais Garnier as we call it here in Paris. I’ve  seen a lot of awe-inspiring interiors in this city but the one found in the Opera definitely trumps them all in terms of being the most extravagant and jaw-dropping.

I really hope these photos will inspire you to pay the Opera House a visit if you ever happen to be in Paris but honestly my photos don’t even do this beautiful building justice for how incredible this place really is on the inside.
