kara in paris + my random european wish list.

my sister is in paris, france! i am extremely jealous of her, but also extremely excited. luckily, she has been able to upload some photos to facebook, so i thought i would share some of them here. while she's there, i plan to share little updates here & there about what she's doing & where she's going.
above she can be viewed jet-laggedly posing in front of the fontaine de saint michel. not only is this kara's first trip overseas, it was also her first experience flying. ever. she describes the jet lag as follows:

'hopefully i will feel normal again soon & not like 
some monster who feels like they're constantly swaying.'

from what she told me, it sounds like she has quite the picturesque paris experience mapped out. i can't wait to write more about her adventures, & of course, share her photos [and let the jealousy continue].
my random european wish list.

that's right. when my sister asked me what i wanted her to pick up 
for me while she was off galavanting in paris, i responded:

'a light, floral print summer scarf... or a chic, vintage cross body bag.'

The scarf at the top left? That is my DREAAAAM! Great choice, and I'm dying of jealousy from your sister's trip!

I would have totally requested one of each! My cousin came back from Paris a few months ago and she brought back the loveliest scarves... i snagged a white one with tiny camel colored hearts!

Love the scarves!! I wish I would have gotten me one when I was there. I went last year and I was terribly sick the whole time and ended up having a miserable time. :( but I kinda wish to have a redo, only in the spring/summer..and not the horrible brutal winter.

hopefully she gets you a real pretty one!

I hope Kara is having a wonderful time! Minus the jet lag which seems to convienently get better the day or two before you are set to return home and experience it all over again.

Fun fact about the Fountaine de Saint Michel, for the longest time recently there has been a traffic cone on top of the head of the statue.
