Birthday in Paris// Paris part 2: vintage shopping and the Petit Palais

Birthday in Paris// Paris part 2: vintage shopping and the Petit Palais
I got to spend my actual birthday in Paris and it was perfect <3

Obsessed that this was the actual view from our window!

After some breakfast and opening birthday cards, we headed out. There was a shop near our hotel called "Vintage Kilo Kawaii" which I'd been dying to look in, so we quickly had a look- they had shirts for 10 euros, so I bought a bluish-grey patterned one :) I'll post about that in my upcoming haul post though. The shop was really stylish and they played really nostalgic music.

Then we decided to go to the Petit Palais, to check out the Art Nouveau architecture. On the way we passed the George Pompidou centre- which is more my kind of architecture. All the vents and lifts are on the outside! Next time I'll definitely go in and see what exhibitions are inside.

We also passed the Hotel de ville- which just looks like a fairytale castle.

We caught the bus to the area around the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais.

We had lunch in the little restaurant next to the courtyard.


The building itself was so imposing. Even though it's called 'Petit', it's absolutely huge. We had a quick look around the galleries, although to be honest I was almost more impressed with how stylishly all the paintings had been displayed than by the actual paintings.






After the Petit Palais, we went to catch the sightseeing boat Bateaux Mouche- but I'll save that for the next post. Thanks for reading! I hope everyone had a happy Easter <3
