The Eiffel tower

When in Paris you have to really don't you?
I wasn't expecting to really feel much of anything when we visited the Eiffel tower but knew it was one of those things we should do. Actually I was surprised at how moved I was when I saw this famous landmark. I had to take a deep breath and take it all in, it really it very beautiful.

When we had spent a few minutes at the Trocadero we decided we'd had our fill of the hustle and bustle of tourists (us included!) and head off down the river. It was early evening and we wanted to have a bit of a stroll before Wilf's bedtime. Actually I'd totally recommend viewing the tower from the river below rather than the top as there is barely anyone there and it's a much more peaceful experience.

What mama wore:
Dress - c/o Kaliko
Shoes - Hotel Brogues c/o Clarks
Bag - Yoshi c/o Nigel O'Hara
Necklace - Swan by Bonbi Forest 

On Wilf:
Sandals - Sun Jellies
T Shirt - Zara
Trousers - Zara
Straw hat - Mothercare
Cardigan - gift

Just stopped for a spot of posing, as you do.

Lots of people told us not to bring a pushchair on our trip but I have to say bringing a super fold up one like this was perfect. At two and a half Wilf can't walk around all day and we would have been really tired talking turns in carrying him around. It's really lightweight so Tom just flung it over his shoulder when we weren't using it or on the Metro etc. We got ours in the sale at Mama's and Papa's a few months back and it doesn't seem to be available at the moment but I'm sure there are a fair few from other places on the market.

Wilf was more excited about the sellers flogging yappy battery powered dogs and key rings than the actual tower but he did mention afterwards that he saw 'Alfie's tower'. So sweet considering his best friend is called Alfie, I think he was excited to tell him about it on our return ;)

Have you visited the Eiffel tower? What did you think?

I totally agree, you think it's going to be another site and then it really takes your breath away and this has happened a few times, I think it would take a while to get bored of it :) Love the colour of your dress by the way :)

These photos are beautiful! I imagine I'll be blown away by the Eiffel tower when I eventually see it.

I remember visiting the Eiffel Tower when I was little and going up the lift to the top, quite exciting! I haven't really visited Paris as an adult, one of those places that has been missed off my list! Would love to go back though!
