Is this Paris? (Mood Boards + Playlist)

Paris. Shadows. Red. Heels. Glossy faces. Wine. Apricots. Hand drawn. Lipstick as paint. Umbrellas. Roman marble. Mixtapes. Thin jumpers. Too-bright eyeshadow. Disposable cameras. Glassy roads. Slate skies. Diamond oceans.

Late April. Mid-autumn, and summer has well and truly faded. Now I catch buses in twilight and walk home in the dark. Street-lights glimmer on the damp pavement and thick, slate clouds are pressed into the sky. I eat breakfast on the kitchen bench and watch the rain become puddles in the driveway.

Hazy afternoons. I daydream about apricots, Paris and glossy faces from the confines of sheets and a dressing gown. I walk down the street in bare feet recording voice memos and poetry. There’s little light in the evenings and the cicadas are loud, but I make these few hours my own.

What am I thinking about?

What am I gravitating towards? Inspired by?

I’m safe and settled in my temporary home. 8 weeks to go. I’ll write soon.

  3. I also did a mood board about Paris, I truly love that city! Barcelona and Paris are very similar (but Barcelona has better weather haha), that’s probably why

    • ah, just the thought of paris makes me feel so dreamy and inspired. Barcelona sounds and looks so beautiful, I hope to visit one day!!

  4. Your design and aesthetic bring my dreams to life!! Inspiration came rushing and I have you to thank for that <3

  5. your mood boards are litteraly the BEST (+ seems weird when you talk about autumn where in France it’s all about spring ahah)
    have a nice day 🌟😘

    • Haha I know, the whole America seems to be buzzing about summer, and I’m here next to a fire. Thank you by the way!! xo
