5 things to do in Lyon, France

Lyon isn't the biggest tourist destination in France but I do think it's an up-and-coming city with a lot to offer. It's full of interesting history, beautiful churches and of course - wonderful food. While I was there in December I was the only person staying in my hostel room - what a steal! I spent 3 days in Lyon and it was just enough time to get a feel for the city. 

So, today I thought I'd share with you 5 things you should do if you're in Lyon.

Vintage Inspired coat and velvet skirt

Winter Wonderland and new glasses!

If you live in the United States you've probably heard of the Snow storm "Jonas" that hit the East coast and South this past week. I'm thankfully fairly far west that we didn't get hit as hard as New York City but we did get quite a lot of snow for the area. I always forget how much I love snow until it happens. And maybe it's because I'm from somewhere that doesn't get snow too often but it sure is magical when it does. It just makes everything look like a winter wonderland and I'm wandering through Narnia. 

I took advantage of the snow day and took some photos early while no one else was out and about. Since moving, I'm having a really hard time finding places to take photographs but I'm pretty glad for the snow day. 

The snow was untouched and it was beautiful. I really wish I could have gotten a more detailed shot of my outfit without my coat on but it was so cold. I knew I wanted to keep warm so I threw on my wool skirt from American Eagle and some fleece-lined tights. For my top, I went for my peter pan collared top and a cardigan on top. My cardigan actually has bunnies on it! I know I'll feature it again soon so you'll get a closer look. 

Shirt: Thrifted
Sweater: Thrifted
Skirt: American Eagle (old)
Coat: H&M (last season)
Shoes: Target

I also got new glasses! I haven't gotten a chance to photograph them until now but I love them. They fit me perfectly and I think they really go with my style nowadays.

If you're a fashion blogger - where do you go to take photos? Did you get by Jonas?

Paris // Travel

With the start of the new year I'm excited to bring a new section to my blog: Travel! 
I recently went on a three-week long trip to France, Amsterdam, and Spain. I'm going to do these posts by locations, otherwise they will go on forever. 

I'm also thinking about doing a post on how to travel cheaply because I think I've become pretty good at it over my past trips.
