If there's something I would definitely go back to Paris for, hands down it would be the parks and gardens. SubhanAllah, words can't describe some of them. Jardin des Tuileries is one of my favourite parks in the heart of Paris, just opposite the Louvre. It's simple but still breathtaking. If you walk past the big fountain in the centre, pass the rows of colourful lilies and big pink trees (where most of the locals and tourists will be), you'll find yourself lost in between rows of perfectly aligned enchanting trees, and into a quiet area, scattered with green chairs for you to lay back and relax, under the shade of luscious leaves, away from the hustle and bustle. All you'll hear are the sounds of chirping birds, joggers passing by and book pages flipping ever so softly. Had I not planned to meet up with my mum at a fabric store that afternoon, I would've happily taken a nap in this cosy little corner beside the nice old lady.
The weather that day was beautiful, as the sun took centre stage, but surprisingly still chilly. And so I kept myself warm and fuzzy in a simple pastel jumper and tulle Annah Hariri skirt, which was the perfect thing to roam about the city in for some casual glam.
