Paris apartment and purple jeans

After seeing the purple AG Stevies on Molly (here), I knew I needed to track a pair down!  My size was sold out online, and I ended up having to call around to quite a few stores to find them.  Luckily, they arrived just in time for my trip to Paris:)  I planned on wearing mostly dresses, but the weather did not cooperate so I was happy that I brought these jeans along.  Below are 2 outfits from my trip featuring these lovelies.

 These are not the best outfit photos, but you get the idea (plus I get to sneak in more vacation stuff!).

We found an apartment to rent in Paris via airbnb.  I highly recommend doing this!  In my opinion, it is so much better than staying in a hotel.  Our apartment was beautiful, cozy, and convenient.  The transaction with the owner was wonderful and it was a good experience all around.  It was so nice having the place to ourselves, having a full kitchen to cook in, having a washer/dryer, etc.

We spent a good portion of one day visiting the Clignancourt flea market.  It was fun to walk around and look at all of the beautiful things I wish  I could have somehow gotten back to the states with me:)

Too bad I'm holding my huge coat in all of these pictures  - otherwise you may have been able to actually see the outfit!
