What I'm Wearing: White BCBG in Paris

A little while ago we decided to take a spontaneous day trip to Paris in pursuit of the world's biggest fish fry. Sadly I'm referring to Paris, Tennessee and not Paris, France, but still... good food is good food! 

It was one of those days where nothing was planned. Though we knew the general direction of where Paris is, once we got into town we had to stop and ask for directions to "this fish fry thing that we heard about." The beauty of small towns is that (most) people are super friendly and were able to give us perfect directions to a local fair where the fish fry was taking place. What they neglected to tell us was that the event didn't start until the next day! It was likely the first time in my life I'd been early for anything. 

Worlds biggest fish fry

In the end, we left without being able to satisfy M's fish craving that he's been chasing since Guatemala. Instead we ate greasy and fattening delicious handmade burgers and milkshakes at this ma and pa joint then drove to an elk and bison reserve in Kentucky because why not. 

The reserve was surprisingly beautiful so we took a bunch of pictures of ourselves with my tripod and remote and sometimes I turned the camera on the animals too. We had a frighteningly fun encounter with this beast when he decided to cross the road two feet from our car, which made us realize he was way bigger than our car. I popped out of the sunroof to capture a shot as I figured it was less of a risk compared to sticking my head out of the window and M had his foot poised on the pedal in case we needed to gun it.

All in all, I'm loving my time here in the States and all the randomness that comes from it! Have you ever driven for hours in pursuit of food? I know I'm not the only one...

    1. It was really stunning to see up close, especially because they were in the process of shedding their fur which made the bison look quite distorted.

    1. I actually hadn't thought about the potential problems of wearing white to a fish fry, I was just thinking about wearing something with an elastic waist! lol

  8. That´s a pretty dress you´re wearing! I was laughing so hard on your fish fry anecdote because it happened to us too in one of the usual town fairs in here, we also came a day early just to buy cheese and cured hams, lol! Lucky you on seeing a real life bison, I only get to see them painted on the caves in one of the places here in Spain. :)

    1. What a bummer when that happens, eh? As for the bison, how cool getting to see the cave paintings. How many people get to say they say that in Spain?

    1. I know! They'd been rolling around in the mud all day to cool off. It was really stunning to see the bison up close, not to mention the little thrill of will he charge or not? It was definitely a rush when snapping that pic.
