It has always been my dream to see the iconic Eiffel Tower with my own eyes. My friend Yuri, who was also my tour guide during my first week in Paris, surprised me with the best scenic view of the Tower. I think my jaw literally dropped when I turned the corner and saw the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen in my life.

人生一度はこの目で見たいと願っていたエッフェル塔。今回の初パリ旅行中、やっと見ることができました。パリに詳しい友達の友里ちゃんに、エッフェル塔の眺めが最高に良いスポットへ連れて行ってもらい、駅を出て角を曲がったすぐ先のこの素晴らしい光景に思わず目を見開いてしまいました。街の中でもこんなに綺麗な景色が存在するんだなと、感動しました。

I remember Yuri kept laughing at my yelps of glee as I rushed closer to see the Eiffel Tower, snapping away on my camera. Yuri had also scheduled a photo shoot with Russian photographer Belaya Lena, who was kind enough to also snap these gorgeous portraits of me as well. I’m glad I was wearing this particular outfit that day – my favorite color-block dress courtesy of DVF, a chic white blazer I found at the H&M in Thailand, retro cat-eye frames from zeroUV, my personalized white kicks from Josefinas, and my mother’s old LV shoulder bag that she bought in Paris over 30 years ago. Welcome back to Paris, little LV.

興奮を押さえられず、「ヤバい!すごい!」とはしゃぎながら近くまで見ようと小走りになる私はきっと子供みたいだったんだろうな。友里ちゃんがちょうどその日、ロシア人のカメラマンベラヤ・レナさんと撮影をすることになっていたので、私も何枚か記念に撮ってもらいました。DVFのカラーブロックワンピースに白いブレザー、白いスニーカーにサングラスという、偶然エッフェル塔とお揃いの白メインのコーディネートにしたのも何かの運だと思います。そして、ママが30年前にパリで買ったヴィトンのバッグを旅のお供に。パリへお帰り。

On a side note, this is actually the day I flew in to Paris. Doesn’t look like I traveled 12 hours, does it? Even the always-energetic Yuri was surprised at how much energy I had the entire day. I mean come on, it was my first time ever in Paris – I would be an idiot to pass out on the hotel bed right after my flight on the first day, right? Simply not an option. I am one to enjoy my travels to the fullest whenever possible.

実はこの写真を撮った日に、パリへ到着したんです。12時間以上飛行機に乗ってた風に見えないですよね(笑)。やっぱり初ヨーロッパ、初パリが楽しみで仕方なかったので、疲れも吹っ飛んだんだと思います。せっかくの旅行を無駄には過ごしたくない主義なので!

Paris is such an iconic place and I know exactly what spot you are at! Your DVF dress looks amazing on you and I always fight my exhaustion when it comes to traveling. You can always get rest later because the view of the Eiffle Tower is definitely worth it.

The Eiffel Tower is so iconic of Paris and I can only imagine your excitement. I love Paris and have been there twice but am just as excited to go again this fall with my family. I am sure I will be taking photos at that exact spot that you are in now! You definitely don’t look like you traveled for 12 hours in these photos and I love the white blazer with the white sunnies and the printed dress! So chic and Parisian! xoxo, Christine

I basically didn’t even see a tower there as I kept staring at how beautiful you were and when you tell us in the end that you’ve been traveling for 12 hours and still look that fresh I have to say I envy you a bit. Who am I kidding, not even a bit, I mean A LOT. And that last pic of you two together is simply stunning too! Welcome back home little LV bag 🙂

Let me say that you and Yuri had to be the most stylish ladies in Paris on this day! You guys showed up and showed out!! You were so Parisian-like! I loved your outfit and those pics are everything! The Eiffel Tower is definitely art. I haven’t seen it in double digit years up close. I must get back to see if with my grown eyes some day.

I love this outfit of yours! You look so stylish and perfectly “at home” in Paris! I can’t believe this was your first day in the city. I certainly wouldn’t look as refreshed and chic as you do in these pics! I love the fact that your LV bag was your mom’s and that she bought it from Paris many years ago. That is so cool!

Dear Samantha,
I am completely in awe over this magnificence! Yes, the Eiffel Tower is extraordinary and I can see why passing out after 12 hours in transit was not an option but you are the most stunning of all in this absolutely gorgeous ensemble! Love the DVF so much and it’s paired so effortlessly chic with the blazer and sunglasses! Welcome home, little LV indeed! Bravo, Samantha!

Samantha, you look extraordinary in this outfit and the same for your friend. Both complement each other so well in this perfect spot. I can only imagine your excitement. When I when to Paris the first time, I felt overwhelmed with so many emotions that even tears drop from my eyes to make a dream come true!! Hopefully, can come back to Paris for a third time in a near future. Love it there!!!

This view of the Eiffel tower is perfect! This viewpoint is away from tourists, and a great place to just bask in the beauty of this icon. Almost as iconic as Yuri’s cute bear accessory!

Paris is beautiful and it also a dream of mine to see Eiffel Tower. The pictures you’ve made are amazing and I love the vintage LV bag and its story. Your outfit was great, the dress and oversized jacket look so stylish together.

Your outfit is so Parisian! It pairs really well with that Eiffel Tower in the backdrop. How stunning was the view? I can only imagine it for now as I have not been to Paris yet. I really hope to be able to see the Tower one day. Your friend looks super cute too! I love the bear in her hair. 🙂

Girl you look so stunning! Paris looks so pretty. Did you shoot these super early in the day? I definitely don’t see many tourists which is what makes your shots incredible <3

I’m with you on that! I spent this whole past week running on 4 hours of sleep daily. When you’re out of town, there simply is no time to sleep. I can imagine getting maybe 2 hours of sleep in somewhere as beautiful as Paris haha.
