Hello! I had the best time in Paris last week! I can’t even describe how magical it was. There is something special to see at every corner. The architecture and gardens are incredible and I’m envious of everything about the Parisian lifestyle and culture. The treats and eats were also to die for and the French Macarons from Laduree? Heavenly! Even though I was only there for a few days, I made the best of every minute and soaked in as much of the Parisian culture as I was able. If you haven’t visited this romantic city yet, be sure to put on the top of your list!
In my post last week, I mentioned a few must pack items. One item I definitely won’t leave without is the Henkaa Sakura convertible dress. Sometimes, it is just impossible to plan for every activity and event in the travel itinerary. Packing becomes a hassle when you’re trying to predict ever possibility- i.e. am I going to a casual place for dinner? Something fancy? Packing a convertible dress provides options and the Sakura dress certainly gives a variety – it can be worn at least in 8 different ways! I’m wearing the midi dress in royal blue in a few different ways, the dress also comes in a mini and maxi length.
What are your thoughts, do you own a convertible, multi-wear dress?
Above, dress worn with sleeves and a crisscross back with the knot tied in the front. Photo was taken on the balcony of our hotel room in Vendome, the views were unreal.
The dress is simply transformed by gathering the sleeves and twisting them inward.
I adore the Parisian local florists, they have an array of stunning flowers and arrangements. This one was found while stumbling through Saint Germain des Pres.
I created an one shoulder dress by gathering both straps on one side and twisting and braiding the back. Henkaa included an extra detail by overlapping one piece of fabric over top the other in the front seam so that this one shoulder look can be transformed easily without having skin exposed near the cleavage. Clever!
There were so many love locks at Pont des Arts and some were just incredibly cute. You can’t argue this is the most romantic city.
The two sides of the fabric are slightly different, one has a matte finish and one has a sheen to it.
I haven’t seen so many merry-go-arounds in one city before! I love them, they are incredibly adorable! This one is at the Jardin de Tuileries.
I’ll be sharing some more photos from Paris soon, I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek of a few for now! If you have any questions about wearing this dress, i.e. how to tie them in different ways (Henkaa has some great tutorials) or have any questions on my trip to Paris, please leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to share with you!
Gorgeous photos – can wait to see more 🙂
OMG I still can’t believe your were in PARIS! too amazing really. That’s like a serious bucket list dream of mine. The balcony photo is SOOOO pretty I was starring for about 3 minutes (details, details).
Anywho, I have seen this dress on many clothing sites, it’s great to finally see it on a blogger than rather than a model! I really like how versatile is it! The fabric is very pretty. Oh and all the FLOWERS, I want them all.
GREAT post! 🙂
