Do you ever have this nostalgic feeling, of a time long ago or even one in which you have never lived yourself?
I’m a dreamer. There, I admit it. And sometimes I find myself deep in my own thoughts, thinking of a particular place and a moment that I was never in. But yet it still feels so calm, so safe, and so real.
I’m not talking about wanting an escape from reality, but rather yet I’m talking about finding more about you through your thoughts.. The more I delve into a different reality, the more I learn about who I am, and who I want to be.
Deep thoughts aside, when I shot these photos the other day by London Bridge, they gave me this very nostalgic feeling of being a Parisian woman (of which I am), with a simple life living so carefree. A woman sipping coffee at her local café on the quaint streets of Paris, surrounded by people yet sitting alone, and reflecting on her day whilst watching unfamiliar faces passing by. A woman always chic, always timeless. I love that the French woman are always very put together, they are the most sophisticated I know.
A woman with your average day job. No stress, no ambitions, no disappointments. She lives by her rules, she finds love, wild love, and she finds happiness from within. She longs to travel, and in her mind she escapes. But she is content, carefree in a world of simplistic things.
And although I have so much ambition, so much drive to make my life the way I want it to be – maybe in some odd way, I am that woman, in a different world.
