I stamped my own pattern of  afternoons onto the fabric of Paris just because I wanted to spend a typically French afternoon, powdered with a little personal touch, of course.

I left for Paris on Friday and Serban was coming on Sunday so we could randez-vous at a bistro at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. I was planning of have a coffee (still water in the end), eat a croissant or 10, laugh, talk about all kinds of things, listen to French music, walk around the little streets of  Le Marais and take the metro. Finally, end the day at Fauchon, gorging on pastry and eating them on Pont Alexandre.

  All in all, living like the French do. Of course, my outfit had to be French like too so what could have fitted better than a chic head accessory with a veil and an uber lady-like dress? I looked like a crazy  and chic (I hope) Minnie

So, at 4 o’clock, Serban was waiting for me in front of our favorite bistro, near Hotel de Ville, with a bunch of flowers in his hand, smiling and looking…ok, I’m not going to go on (he’s a very private person). We laughed (as I predicted), talked a lot, I was sometimes shy, it still amazes me how after 8 months of living together I am still shy and feel butterflies in my stomach around him sometimes.

Ok, I’ll stop with the love overdose, it makes me sick also but I can’t help it, bare with me! People it’s  Paris, I tell you, you cannot help it but talk about love in this city.


I must state that I only travel with Air France. I’ve taken this resolution and decided to share it with you because they have the best deals, the nicest crew and the most comfortable flights. So thank you Air France!

    This is by far the most beautiful and inspiring outfit I’ve recently seen. I just love how its simplicity and innocence express such a powerful attitude like confidence. You’re such a modern Minnie! <3

    Imi place foarte mult sa ma uit pe blogul tau. Pe langa tinutele superbe, imi place mult si ce scrii. Si ma ajuta mult sa iti vad calatoria prin viata. De multe ori ma regasesc in inceputurile tale, la o facultate care nu ma implineste si dorind sa schimb ceva la viata mea, dar nestiind ce. Dar cand ma uit la tine, vad cum toate dorintele si visele tale si-au gasit locul in viata ta, chiar daca unele nici macar nu stiai ca le ai. Si asta ma face sa mai am radbare si speranta ca intr-o zi si in viata mea va fi la fel. Asa ca iti multumesc mult pentru ca ai creat acest blog si iti impartasesti macar o parte din tine cu noi :)

    • Ana Morodan |

      Doamne Paula, ce frumos mi-ai scris! <3

      Ma bucur ca simti asta pentru ca imi doresc foarte mult ca High Street Cardigans sa fie un loc in care noi invatam sa fim optimiste, ingaduitoare, sa ne simtim bine cu noi si sa ne maturizam frumos si in armonie cu cine suntem. Ah, si sa invatam sa fim chic si ladies :)

      Eu iti multumesc with all my heart pentru ce ai scris!

      P.S. FOR EVERYBODY – Comentariul meu nu va fi socotit la extragerea la sorti pentru rochia The ITem, evident :)

  10. Georgiana |

    Tu es géniale, ma chère et tes photos sont divines! Te pup!

  11. Veronica |

    Ma comtesse, vous etes parfait comme d’habitude!


  12. Corina |

  13. Silvia |

    Draga Ana,

    Nu de mult am descoperit High Street Cardigans si am ramas placut impresionata.Blogul tau este o sursa continua de inspiratie pentru noi si un adevarat model de eleganta,clasa si bun gust.Inca din primele fotografii mi-ai zis: uite o femeie puternica cu mare incredere in sine si din experientele careia as avea de invatat multe lucruri!
    Revenind la concurs,daca ar fi sa aleg una dintre cele doua rochii as alege-o pe cea roz inchis.De ce? Simplu…este rochita in care m-as vedea intr-o dupa masa de primavara insorita,dupa ce imi rapesc cea mai buna prietena pentru o plimbare (care implica si aparatul foto :-D) prin Parcul Central din Cluj(unde sunt studenta).

  14. Maria |

    O prea frumoasa contesa in cel mai frumos si mai nobil oraș din lume! Cred ca este unul dintre cele mai reusite posturi de pe blog, nu numai datorită tinutei impecabile sau a decorului pe care il ador, ci si pentru ca se citește adevarata fericire in zâmbetul tau (a fi îndrăgostit in Paris este un sentiment sublim). Mă bucur de bucuria pe care știi sa o impartasesti cu noi cu atâta delicatete!

    You look absolutely dazzling in that tremendous pink gown. The lacey stockings are sexy and sensual. All in all, your outfit screams mystery, femininity. A simple, yet sophisticated allure.

  16. Dana Gherghilescu |

    This is my favorite post of all your last 5 ones! This 8th of March changed my life in a very colorful and majestic way and your post expresses what I love most about spring: flowers, their marvelous perfume, chic dresses, colors and sun! Oh, the sun is splendid in spring! Your blog just reunites all my loves and makes me dream with my eyes open! I am sad and jealous at the same time that I could not attend Paris, but I am really glad that you have shared your experience with us… Thank you , Ana, for all the hard work for professional blogging and you looked great as the Minnie Countess!

    Ana, nu ma pot hotari asupra unui post din ultimele 5. Nu stiu daca ma pot hotari asupra vreunui post de pe blogul tau. Tu esti o minunata oricum, si dupa mine esti una dintre cele mai chic femei din Romania. :) Iti ador stilul.

    Dana Andrei

    Te pup,

    Cred ca ai cautat mult acel carusel.
    O lectie de what to do in Paris extrem de tentanta…

    Hello! Fain concurs :) Fotografiile sunt extraordinare, la fel şi ţinuta! :) Paris este o stare de bine şi frumos, cred ca puţini ar putea sa nege acest lucru … Ambele rochii sunt superbe, totuşi aş înclina spre cea roz :) Chiar se întâmplă sa revăd dragul meu Paris anul acesta, în mai, în voiajul de nuntă şi aş fi mai mult decât încântată dacă aş câştiga o asemenea rochie! :)
