My love affair with Paris is not only subjective to the Eiffel Tower but come on how could you not love such an iconic symbol of such a romantic and wondrous city! The last few times in Paris I was never able to capture an #ootd in front of the lovely tower. Did you know the structure was completed for a World’s Fair originally? Or that is was originally a dark red? Ok just some fun facts I learned on the tour, which I definitely recommend you doing if you are in the City of Lights. The tower once was the tallest structure in the world before the Empire State Building knocked them off the top.

So I wanted to share a few tips with you on capturing the best photos of the Eiffel Tower. If you want to capture the entire tower in your photos do not head directly to the tower instead you want to go to Trocadero, you should go fairly early to avoid the crowds or prepare to get creative with your shots to avoid other tourists trying to get the perfect snap!
If you are looking for the perfect picnic spot under the Eiffel Tower try the Champs De Mars. Try one of the lovely bakeries where you can pick up some baguettes or sandwiches to dine under this perfect little piece of history.

If you want to catch the Eiffel Tower twinkling in all its glory besure to head to one of the many bridges on the Seine for a mystical display of ohhs and ahhs. Grab a crepe or and glacee to make the moment magical by one of the two carousels.
I hope you make it to the Eiffel Tower and that my Tower tips make the difference for you visit! La Vie Est Belle <3 xoxo Michelle Natalia
