17TH TO MONMARTRE
We rented an apartment in the neighbourhood of the 17th, right next to Monmartre: la boheme. It said in the description that "you will only find locals living here, it's very quiet with plenty of little restaurants, farmers markets and boulangerie." It's always nice to see how the locals live in another city so we were set for our home away from home. It was a beautiful brightly lit apartment with a balcony for breakfasts' and big sturdy wooden doors. Here's a peek at our neighbourhood and what I wore on a night out from the 17th to Monmartre.
What I'm wearing: COS coat (similar here), Glassons jeans, Zara sandals (similar here) & Céline bag.I didn't plan on visiting any vintage shops, I kind of let it just happen. This COS coat was one of plenty items I picked up from a vintage store that my friend Nicole and I stumbled upon. We were on our way to meet the boys at Rose Bakery and she asked me if we could go in and take a look around at a store we came across. It was called Truck en Stock. I'm always up for shopping so of course I said yes! It was quite a small store but was filled with so much designer vintage. A couple of rummaging, "OMG-that's-so-cheap!" and ignored calls after and we were both holding big purple and white polka dot bags with smiles from ear to ear. It was so funny and totally meant to be!A night out to Montmartre showed me another amazing view of Paris from the top of the hill at Sacré Cœur. P and I watched the sunset from the steps and then went for dinner and friday night drinks at La Famille in the 18th. We were lucky considering it was a full house and we didn't make any reservations. It was dinner and drinks, just the two of us. The €9 raspberry mojitos were pretty much the highlight cocktail of the night, they were just too good!
