This week was back to school in the US and La Rentrée in Paris. I have to say I felt completely overwhelmed this week and I wasn’t going back to school or work after a long break. As a creative, ideas come in waves and this week I was jotting down ideas left and right. Over the weekend, I cleaned my apartment and got rid of a pile of boxes including a few returns to Nordstroms. It feels good to have a clean and clutter free apartment and makes me feel a little less overwhelmed starting off the week.
This week I bought a subscription to the NYT online version which opened up a whole new world of reading. If you aren’t a subscriber, you only get a few articles to read per month. Now I can read an unlimited amount and I couldn’t be happier about it. I hope you enjoy this week’s links. xo
Last weekend, I binge watched Succession wearing these comfy pants. I need the matching sweatshirt for Fall. I blame you all for my obsession with Lou and Grey :)
If you have always dreamt of purchasing a house in Provence, this is a great read. If it hasn’t crossed your mind yet, watch “A Good Year.”
Behind the Curtain at The Paris Opera. I have seen inside the Opera house before but I have never been for a performance. This is still on my list to do in Paris.
Cuyana just came out with a camera bag and I really want it for my next trip to Paris. It would fit my Fuji camera perfectly.
Skip Versailles and Go to These Castles Near Paris Instead. I have had Chantilly on my list for years, hopefully this Fall.
Chicago friends, join me this Thursday at Diptyque. There are still spots available. Make sure to RSVP.
The boots that I swear by for walking around Paris are 40% off. They come in under $100. I have them in mushroom and I wear them in brown and black.
This is the to do list notepad I use daily. It sold out earlier, but it is back in stock. I have two (one as a backup) because I love it so much.
Project for train station Gare du Nord divides Paris. Should every train station be turned into a shopping mall?
The Perfect Café sweater for the colder days ahead. I always like to pack at least one warm bulky sweater for Paris. There is at least one rainy day you will need this to keep warm.
I decided to keep the Sézane coat I purchased a few weeks ago. I was on the fence because I bought it in camel which I typically choose black for coats. My friend Jennifer convinced me it was a good classic coat and color. I think it needs a scarf with a pop of color like this one.
