Palais Du Louvre

Photography by Jana Williams

Out of my 14 days in Paris the one day that Jana and I decided to visit the Louvre it happened to be incredibly rainy and windy.  Originally we wanted to play tourist and take a few photos in front of the louvre itself, but we ended up finding shelter next door. It was quite frustrating to get a good shot due to the weather ( it was so windy that our umbrellas ended up flying away!!),  but on a positive note the wind actually made my pleated maxi skirt look quite dynamic. Wouldn’t you agree?

Anyways one of my favorite combos is pairing maxi skirts with booties for the ultimate juxtaposed casual glam look. I recently purchased these rockstud Valentino booties from Forward by Elyse Walker, and i’ve been pairing them with practically everything. Although I prefer to wear heels during fashion week, on my days off (especially when playing tourist) I’m usually running around in sneakers or flat boots. Truth be told I prefer to wear flats more than heels (when i’m not shooting), and that’s why I can never say no to a pair of statement flats! These rockstuds had me at hello.

Looking back at these photos I wish I smiled and laughed a bit more since the location was so incredibly gorgeous. But I believe that my expressions were  true to how I felt at the moment…..FREEZING COLD! I usually despise rainy days, but there’s something about Paris that makes even the darkest of clouds tolerable and incredibly  romantic.

That is such a gorgeous outfit!!! I’m going to Paris and London in less than a month and I’ll , as expected, be doing a TON of walking…so my usual go to shoes are an obvious no haha. I was wondering if you could recommend me some fashionable yet comfy shoes or sneakers? Some that are relatively affordable haha
Thanks!!! <3

Some women their very pure skin care regime reduced to a new talent yet are often unprepared and they sometimes missing the really should have essentials into their makeup bagWho would have thought that they actually make dollhouse furniture with wicker?

Before reading, I thought it was a concept you were going for, but then I realized you really were cold. But I really think the weather helped you in these photos because they look almost darkly romantic – which I love. I love how that skirt moves! ^^
