During my two-day trip to Paris, I knew there were going to be some things I had to skip or cover really quickly, and one of those things being the Louvre. If you’re not familiar with the Louvre, it’s the keeper of all of the worlds treasures—like the Mona Lisa—and BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z filmed their music video “APESHIT” inside the Louvre. At least, that’s my impression of the museum. There is probably more to it than that, however, that just goes to show you how uninformed I was, and how little I care about museums. I know it sounds harsh and shallow, but I have just never been a museum kind of girl. One time in fourth grade, we went on a field trip to an art museum, and I was so hungry the whole, and that experience alone ruined museums for me forever. HAH.

And while I may not prioritize museums when I travel, I definitely wanted to stop by the Louvre and admire its architecture.

But it was the trip to the Louvre and back to my hotel that really showed me how perfect this Pinkies Up Dress from Soncy for my trip to Paris. As I was packing for my trip, I had a mild freak out about what I would actually be wearing in Paris. My looks had to be chic, but they also had to be extremely functional so that I could walk around all day and survive the heatwave Europe was currently enduring. I also watched a bunch of YouTube videos on what not to wear in Paris, which I shouldn’t have because they were basically BS and totally psyched me out. So I ended up packing my chicest looks, which ended up not being the most practical or comfortable, all because I wanted to “fit in.” However, this dress really surprised me. I took a Byrd electric scooter to the Louvre and while I thought it was going to be a disaster with this flowy dress, it was actually perfect. I then took the metro home, and put on some sneakers after my feet began to hurt. While the dress itself can come off as pretty formal, it dresses down pretty well, too. And the fabric was perfect for temperatures above 90. This may be TMI, but I was sweating so much, and the dress never showed it. Before this trip, I think I had worn this dress to dinner once in April, and I hadn’t taken it out since. But I am so happy that I took it on this trip with me because now I cannot stop wearing it! I topped off the look with this chic Hangin' Around You Crossbody bag from Fashion Nova, which is an amazing dupe for the Chloe Faye Crossbody bag!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in the Pinkies Up Dress, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!
