The Neverending Train Ride + YMI Jeans Giveaway!

Today was one of the longest days of my life! We had to leave our hotel in Milan at 6:45 am for the train to Paris. Unfortunately, I snoozed my alarm clock a few too many times and got a 5 minutes to spare wake-up call & had to scramble to get my things together. We had to drag our suitcases 1.5 miles to the station.

Reading "Travels of a T-Shirt in a Global Economy" on the train

Then, our train had techinical difficulties making what should have been a 6 hour ride, 8 hours. When we finally arrived in Paris we had a million flights of stairs to carry everything. It was quite a relief to finally make it to our hotel in the Bastille district!

While I'm away, I've still got my lovely readers in mind! YMI Jeans is collaborating with me to bring a wonderful giveaway! They sent me a pair of black skinny jeans which I've already worn out and about. They were super comfy and I felt quite european chic pairing them with ballet flats and a side braid.
