Today’s travel post is dedicated to l’amour, in honour of something very exciting that happened on Sunday (more on that tomorrow!). And I don’t think there is a place in the world that inspires romance more than Paris. I’ve been twice, but have yet to go with the man I love… so the City of Light is definitely going back on the list. Strolling through the winding streets of Montmatre, picnicking by the Seine (with a baguette, some stinky cheese and a bottle of vin, of course!), sipping rich hot chocolate (soup) at a cafe while people-watching. Have you ever heard the old adage that “a bad day in Paris is still better than a good day anywhere else”? There’s just something about this city that makes every moment feel so much MORE. (I can understand why the Parisians are said to have a superiority complex… I would too!)
So why not bring a little bit of Paris into your every day life?
Clockwise, from top left:
Ubiquitous striped shirt, a must. Macarons! The ones pictured here are the famous ones. (But if you live in Toronto, I can vouch for the ones at Daniel et Daniel.) Adorable cards from Rifle Paper co. And how lovely is this fabric? So graphic. I also find this really cute. And I can’t believe I’ve lived so long without a bag especially designed to carry my baguettes home.
I suppose this isn’t particularly French, but I would also really like to own one of these — to help me scoot around town, of course. Not just because it’s so pink and lovely!:
I’m so excited to share my news with you tomorrow! Until then, au revoir!
