PARC DE BAGATELLE ROSE GARDEN

I discovered a new little slice of heaven on earth on our first day in Paris: the rose garden in Parc de Bagatelle. I mean really, can you think of three more magical words strung together than “Paris rose garden?!” Parc de Bagatelle is about a 30 minute trek from the city center but oh my goodness, it is worth the trip. If you are visiting in May or June, you must add this to your itinerary!

The roseraie is filled with more than 9,000 rose plants and it felt like every single one was in bloom for our visit last week. There were roses on arbors, roses on trees, and roses on stakes growing several feet above my head. Not to mention the peacocks (!), topiaries, and the fact that we practically had the place to ourselves relative to other parks in Paris… it was a dream.

I couldn’t wait to wear this navy bow dress that arrived literally an hour before we left for the airport. I tore open the box, tried it on, and instantly made room in my suitcase. I initially ordered both the navy and the red-orange (it also comes in yellow), but I decided to return the latter as it’s more orange than it looks online and an orange dress on this redhead is just not a good look.

Anyway! I’m wearing the size 2 and it fits true to size. I’m obsessed with the bow shoulders and fit-and-flare silhouette — this is the kind of dress I just live in during the summer because you can throw it on with sneakers for a coffee run or dress it up with nude sandals for a double date. The one drawback is the fabric wrinkles fairly easily, but nothing a travel steamer can’t fix!

  1. That looks gorgeous. Thanks, Mackenzie! My fiance are heading to Paris a week from tomorrow and I’m so excited to see the rest of your recommendations before our trip!

  2. Definitely adding this to my to do list next time I go. I had major Paris sickness when I went (just a major disenchantment with the city), because it was dirty like every other major city and tourists were everywhere and Parisians were truly rude. But to get out somewhere off the beaten path that is as beautiful as this! Must do!
