What is it about Paris that is so magical to us? A search.

Je ne sais, ne sais, ne sais pas pourquoi
On s’aime comme ça, la seine et moi
Je ne sais, ne sais, ne sais pas pourquoi
On s’aime comme ça, la seine et moi

Vanessa Paradis & M – La Seine

Guys, do you feel the same? Every time I’m walking though the streets of Paris or even when I only think about the city of love, I’m turning melancholic. Or rather, I’m starting to dream, because it actually only makes me sad when I don’t yet know when I’ll be back in my city of dreams the next time.

But is this feeling of love and missing and warmth really thanks to the city itself? Or is it a certain image that makes Paris one of the most unique city in the world to me? Is it the chansons and sayings, the poems and songs and the always present “Parisienne” image, which simply veiled my clear thoughts? Oh là-là

Are all of these thoughts just based on chlichés? I mean, the idea of lovers falling into each others arms on beautiful bridges, of them running though the pouring rain? I mean the idea of sitting in a street café for hours, sipping on coffee or wine and reading Roland Barthes or simply looking into your lover’s eyes? Who made up this image of Paris, anyway? Was it Woody Allen again? Everything is his fault, anyway, I mean…

Because, if we are honest, Paris is in fact just really big, chaotic, dirty and smelly. The traffic is a desaster and the people aren’t living very well. The rents are too expensive and so is the food and living in general. Nobody can afford living in Paris these days and the periphery of Paris is a social catastrophe. The times when Ernest Hemmingway was sipping on his cognac in Le Marais, scribbling into his notebook, are such a thing of the past.

And yet, I can’t help myself, I like being in Paris. More than that. I love the special light, the bright, old and incredibly beautiful houses, the way of living, which you simply have to have discovered once in your life, the wine… all that turns Paris into the capital of my heart. What can I do? I will definitely come back. Time and again.

Do you also have such a special connection to Paris and do you know where it might come from? I am really looking forward to your comments on this topic!

    You are looking outstanding and Paris streets are always such a perfect “location” to have on your photos. :)

    ohh ja meine Liebe! da bin ich ganz bei dir! ich kenne Paris inzwischen wie eine zweite Wahlheimat ;)
    schon als Kind und Jugendliche habe ich so viel Zeit dort verbracht … und irgendwie hat sich kaum etwas verändert heute, obwohl es immer was Neues zu entdecken gibt!

    dein Outfit könnte diesen Ton besser nicht treffen – très chic mit einem gewissen modernen Touch :)

    liebste Grüße auch,

    Paris ist sicherlich toll. Ich selber bin ja eher der London Fan :).
    Liebe Grüße!

    Ich finde Paris auch ganz zauberhaft, auch wenn mein letzter Besuch so lange her ist und ich mich durch die Anschläge nicht mehr getraut habe, eine Reise dort hin zu unternehmen.

    Den Look mag ich ja besonders gerne an dir, wenn es nicht sogar mein liebster bisher ist <3 Der Rock ist einfach der Wahnsinn und ich liebe die süßen Details an den Ärmeln des Trenchcoats *-*
    Wirklich ein super stimmiges und tolles Outfit aus Paris
    Liebst Kathi

    Der Look könnte kaum perfekter zur Location passen – ein super schönes Frühlingsoutfit, die Sandalen haben es mir ganz besonders angetan!
