Sweet In The Sixteenth

It’s been another busy week for me here in Paris. Last Sunday night Manu and I returned from a few days in the Alps. The change of scene and the fresh air did us some good, even if it was not the most relaxing of trips. We arrived back late on Sunday night, and I was up very early on the Monday for a French Test. I’ve just enrolled in some classes, so Monday was a test of my level in French, and the classes commenced mid-week. I also had my cousin and a friend of hers visit for three nights, and they would have to have been our most exuberant guests so far. We had a great time seeing some sights and sitting in cafés. The late nights, early mornings and general lack of sleep really started to take their toll on me. Hence my absence from the blog in the last week.

The weekend was fairly relaxing, and this outfit was just perfect for the mild weather on Sunday. I found this light jacket on sale at Karen Millen an age ago, and the top is something I whipped up for the Birthday Challenge, though never got to wear as the temperatures plummeted that night. The Birthday Challenge has gone awry with my trip home to Australia in June and all the visitors we’ve had this summer. I am trying to catch up though.

Çe fut encore une semaine très remplie pour moi ici à Paris. Dimanche soir dernier, Manu et moi sommes retournés des Alpes. Le changement de scène et l’air frais nous a fait du bien, même si ce n’a pas été le voyage le plus relax. On est arrivé tard le Dimanche soir, et je me suis réveillée tôt le lundi matin pour faire un test de Français. Je me suis juste inscrite à des cours, donc lundi etait le test de niveau et les cours ont commencé en millieu de semaine. En plus, cette semaine ma cousine et une amie à elle sont venus nous voir pendant trois nuits: très certainement les visiteuses les plus exubérantes jusqu’à maintenant. Je leur ai donc fait visité Paris un petit peu, et nous avons passé pas mal de temps dans des cafés. Les jours prolongés et le manque de sommeil m’ont vraiment fatigué, d’où mon absence sur le blog la semaine dernière.

Le week-end a été assez calme, et cette tenue était parfaite pour les températures douces de ce Dimanche. J’ai trouvé cette veste légère chez Karen Millen il y a quelques années, et le haut, c’est moi qui l’ai fait pour le Birthday Challenge. En revanche je n’avais pas pu le porter pour la soirée du Challenge car il faisait très froid ce soir là. Je suis légèrement passé à coté du Birthday Challenge ces dernier mois, à cause de mon voyage en Australie en juin dernier et à tous nos visiteurs de cet été. J’essaie de rattraper ce retard.
