Discover Paris: The Eiffel Tower

Interesting facts about the Eiffel Tower:

-In French it is called La Tour Eiffel. Eiffel is pronounced ay-FELL. Like "they fell", except without the TH.
-It's 1063ft tall
-It's named after its designer, Gustave Eiffel
-It was created in 1887-1889 for the Exposition Universelle.
-Eiffel originally wanted to build it in Barcelona but it didn't really fit with the aesthetic of the city.
-Then again it didn't fit with the Haussmannian architecture of Paris either. In fact, Parisians hated it at first! Now they like it more.
-It's 3 blocks from my school
The following outfit pictures (makeup-free!) were taken under it:





dress- H&M
boots- Target
tights- Hue
necklace #1 (choker)- Urban
necklace #2 (butterfly)- Works in Progress (Etsy shop sadly closed)

Oooh cute!! I would love to go to Paris someday, looks like you're having a good time there!

And I'm so thrilled to see that you are still wearing your butterfly necklace :)

I've been a little absent from the blog world (and my Etsy shop too) but I am eager to get back to it! I think I will start some blog posts in the coming days :)

I like your dress and boots too! I'm jealous because I've never really had cute boots... haha ;)
