After running the marathon I was quite tempted to just crash out on the bed and stay there; tackling the five flights of stairs up to our apartment almost finished me off! Parisians don’t seem to care too much for lifts! But let’s face it, you can’t come to Paris and waste an evening sleeping when there’s so much to explore. So me and my blisters went out for a very leisurely stroll through the streets of Montmartre. Trying to keep up with my husband and daughter (who always has far too much energy) was an effort. But it was worth it because we found a charming little restaurant to refuel and indulge in a much needed post marathon meal. On the way we snapped an outfit pic…well it’d be daft not too in Paris!
I like to keep my outfits simple and classic when in Paris so I chose a navy and neutral theme when packing for my trip. This navy Zara jacket is one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe, I get so much wear out of it. Underneath I wore a Chinti and Parker sweater which I bought in the Outnet’s sale a few months ago, it was an absolute bargain and is fantastic quality.
Sweater: Chinti and Parker, trousers: Asos, shoes: Marks & Spencer, satchel: Juno.
I don’t usually post food photos but this tarte tartin really was as delicious as it looks…after a lunch consisting of an energy gel and a couple of orange segments I was ready for an indulgent treat! There’s certainly no guilt after running 26.2 miles!
