Bridges Over The Seine: Pont Alexandre III



I'm quite enamored with the bridges in Paris, there are a plethora stretching across the Seine and canals, each offering seemingly endless variety. Decorative architecture really appeals to the Rococo devotee in me and I've stumbled across a few places that feature this style here. My sister and I happened across the Pont Alexandre III bridge on our wanderings and decided to pause and snap a few pictures.
There's something about the decadence and gaudiness of the Rococo period and style that I find enthralling. I tend to be a minimalist in my personal wardrobe, but I think I harbor some maximalism tendencies. My apartment (which I feel as if I have been talking about and planning since I was 15...) will hopefully be a colorful, crowded little hole that resembles a curiosity shop rather than a home...although the practical side of me (which is probably what keeps my style simple) wonders if I won't create that apartment for many years to come, because I hate the thought of filling every nook and cranny only to rip it apart and pack it up in less than four years time...and four years is the longest I've ever lived anywhere.

  5. I think four years is a wonderful amount of time to create a home that is both a reflection of your passions and personality as well as a refuge and sanctuary from the outside world. I think it's important to make a home your own if you've lived there for a year or more and will likely live there for at least a few years. My bedroom in our condo.... we've lived in the condo off and on for going on five years now, and my bedroom still looks like a dorm. No photos, no decor, just a bed, side tables and a bureau to throw random picture frames and accessories in trays on. It's a sad place.

    I think whatever you do when you finally find your space, you will take your many travels with you and make it a place of many worlds and scenes, but a stylish, whimsical world all your own. I can't wait to see it.

  6. Gorgeous photos! I know what you mean about decorating; I try not to be materialistic, and I don't think of myself as such, but I can be such a packrat! It's so hard to find the right balance!

  9. I love the braids and shoes! And have I told you how much I'm enjoying your London and Paris posts? They're bringing back happy memories of my time there. Your photos are magnificent.

    Hmm one part of me loves the idea/vision of a home that resembles a curiosity shop, but the pragmatic side of me is thinking that it'd be a pain to clean all those trinkets and little objects! I have little trinket boxes, travel souvenirs, and stuffed animals on my bookcase along with my books, and it's annoying to have to pick up and dust off every one of them on cleaning days.

  16. I know what you mean about moving all the time and think it's admirable you're even planning on decorating your apartment. I move so often that I never decorate anywhere... I think at the last place a vase was all I bought...

  20. thanks for your comment! I´m going to visit this market when I´m in Paris the next time! Your outfit is so cool and the lookbook too!

  21. I love your wild print dress on the elegant streets along the Seine. I studied Rococo architecture in college, its so overpowering and at the same time mystifying in all its undulations and movement. I love that you've been planning an apartment since you were fifteen, I imagine there's been some changes along the way but will really reflect you once you find a place to stay for awhile.

  22. The bridge is beautiful, as are you! I LOVE the fierce print on the dress. It's so unexpected and fun, and your flats are the best color ever. Lovely pictures!

  23. WOw you've definitely been blessed with good weather over in Paris. It's been quite miserably In the UK. I remember walking down the seine and thinking how beautiful some of the bridges were!

  24. The bridges in Paris must certainly be a marvel! You're surely in for an architectural treat when you go to Italy. The view of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence is gorgeous especially at night when it, and surrounding buildings, are all lit and illuminated. I can't recall, but will you be going to Venice? The city boasts 455 bridges all its own.
