Visiting Bordeaux during the Christmas holidays


Bordeaux is a great city to visit during the Christmas holidays. It’s not as crowded as Paris and it’s a lot smaller but still hold a lot of parks, a beautiful bridge and long quays for long walks and catching breaths. Discovering doesn’t take long and the city quickly starts to feel like an old friend. During the Christmas holidays the city lights up thanks to beautiful and bright lights and Christmas decoration.

When I was visiting the city I stayed at Chez Dupont. They host a beautiful suite right in front of Notre Dame cathedral. The suite is equipped with everything you need included a washing machine, if you’d like to stay a bit longer in Bordeaux. Around the cathedral you’l find numerous antique shops and behind the cathedral there is a little square with loads of little restaurants and wine bars.

When you’re not dining there out of convenience, I’d suggest Miles or Garopapilles.

When we were there we visited the retrospective about Colombian painter Beatriz Gonzales in the Museum of contemporary art.

And to top it all off add some (three) bold statement pieces like cool shoes or a piece of chunky jewelry.

Capsule Wardrobing step 3

After weeding out your closet aka donating what is ill fitting or just doesn’t make you happy and storing items that aren’t for this season. You’ve lived at least two weeks with a capsule that, like mine, probably is far from perfect. If you have had to buy clothes because you didn’t have proper fitting ones or lacked basics to combine thats fine. But, know that it always better to wait a while until you get a better insight of who you are and what your would like to communicate to the world with your clothes.
