I love Paris in the springtime

I had my own personal photographer this weekend, when I went to visit Steven for the wedding we attended!  I felt special, having someone following me around like a paparazzo, but it was also a strange adjustment (since I'm so used to hauling the tripod into the backyard).  But Steven snapped some pretty pictures of my travel outfit on the night I arrived...

Outfit Details:
Paris Swing Dress: Bernie Dexter (via eBay)
Ida P. Blue Spectator Pumps: B.A.I.T. Footwear
Necklace: ASOS

I just love the print of this dress!  Bernie Dexter makes another style of dress in this same print (which is still available on her site and at ModCloth), but I had actually ordered it before and didn't like the fit on me; it was too big in the bust, oddly, and simply didn't look right.  Bernie ends up doing quite a number of auctions on her eBay store, and I've purchased several items through her that way.  There isn't much in her store there right now, but if you like Bernie Dexter's designs, you should definitely check that out from time to time!  Her stuff is lovely but can be on the pricy side for me, so I love when she lists items!

I arrived on the train in the late afternoon, so Steven and I were able to go out for a nice dinner at one of our favorite places in his town.  They have the most amazing fish dishes I've ever eaten, and both times we've been, the food's been outstanding.  After dinner, we went on a walk and got ice cream from the Haagen Dazs shop(!) in a neighboring town.  They didn't have our favorite flavor (Blueberry Crumble), but it was still delicious.

Have a lovely spring day!
