Fashion Over Reason: Blue Door... And More

Blue Door... And More

Giant blue doors in Paris, red white and blue look

An overcast sky in Paris is not unusual, and it doesn't bother me one bit... except for when it hinders my ability to see for miles after trekking up the stairs of Montmartre. Can you imagine this view were the air not hazy? I know it's amazing because I've seen it before in all of its sunny splendor.

Moving right along, this post is a lot fun for many reasons. For one, I am wearing the brightest item of clothing I own: an amazing oversized linen number that is always a trusty fallback piece when needing to spruce up any look.

Secondly, it showcases not only one of the greatest views of Paris, which is from the top of the Sacré Coeur cathedral in Montmartre, but it also highlights one of the city's great treasures: the unique doors that pepper the streets, opening up to stunning Haussmannian apartment buildings, usually giving way to hidden courtyards. As you can imagine, I zeroed in on these giant blue doors like a bee to honey. They provided the most perfect backdrop juxtaposed against my already red, white & blue lewk. #fate

And there is a third reason for why this blog post is like a party: my hat, of course! I was spreading the FOR love all across Paris and looking ultra chic while doing it, if I do say so myself.
