Vienna, oh Vienna

 Outfit Details:
Coat & Dress: Pull and Bear
Scarf & Tights & Belt: TJmaxx
Sweater: Kohl's
Boots: CCC
Necklace: Lace Affair

Vienna was one of cities I got the opportunity to visit during my months in Europe. The highlight of this trip, for me, was visiting the national library. Setting foot inside was a true Beauty and Beast moment and for this little bookworm, something to knock off my bucket list.

My last photo I'm wearing my "I'm uncomfortable, there are so many people around and I feel awkward taking my own photos" pose. Which is basically how I feel whenever I take pictures in the public. Maybe, pretty please, one day I will feel comfortable doing this.

On the city itself, it was a whirlwind experience.
I spent most of my time just wandering around. It was shorter than expected. Isn't it always? And I can't wait to go back.

Stone Streets in Wintertime

 Outfit Details: 
Jacket: Gift
Shirt & Boots & Tights: TJmaxx
Purse: CCC
Scarf: Venice

I experienced a warmer winter in Prague than I've known before. Only once did any snow stick to the ground for more than a few hours. I loved walking through the stone streets, slowly taking in the buildings around me. I lived near here for a few weeks. Sometimes I'd take the long way home from the tram stop and walk this street. It was often quiet and abandoned, I imagine the warmer months are a different tale.

Prague for One

Outfit Details:
Scarf & Shirt & Boots: TJmaxx
Sweater & Jeans: Kohl's
Book: Paris for One (and other stories) by Jojo Moyes

Bonus: book recommendation! Recently I've been a little obsessed with all things Jojo Moyes. I read the Me Before You series just before the movie was released and fell in love with her stories. Besides Paris for One, I've also just read the Girl You Left Behind, which might have become my new favorite.

I'm coming up on my last few weeks in Prague and I have mixed emotions about leaving: excited to go home and be in a familiar culture, but deeply sadden by leaving this city that I've come to love. But I know it's hard to keep me away from Europe, so I imagine I won't be away for too long.
