catacombs

I had never been to the Paris catacombs, so J and I went a little while ago on a weekday when it wasn't busy. It had rained the day/night before so it was very wet down there, which made it extra creepy. It's really awe inspiring. With each skull I like to think about who that person was, what they did and how they lived. I love history, and living in a city with such a rich and fascinating past gives me endless things to daydream about: The church I pass on the way to school, the building I live in, the cobblestone streets....

It's outfits like this that remind me of the things in my wardrobe that are missing. An olive scarf and an olive bag with purple-toned boots? Sheesh. It reminds me that I need a black scarf, and later on a new black bag. Sometimes you just have to throw shit on to get out the door, and this is one of those outfits. To be honest I've been wearing a variation of the same thing for almost 2 months. It's only recently warmed up and I've started wearing different things (ie. not jeans 24/7)

I still haven't been down there.
I really want to go when I'm in Paris next time.

i think you look totally fine but i get what you mean. nothing like photos to reveal what one's wardrobe needs and doesn't need. :)
i need to visit these catacombs. there's a beauty in the rows of skulls that's hard to quantify. they're like a landscape.
great photos.
