Links I Love : July Week 3

This week was a busy one! I felt I was in full on celebration mode all week long. The opening of the Brasserie Margeaux in Chicago took place which kicked off Bastille Day celebrations until the weekend. I am at Southport Art Festival in Chicago talking Paris, Travel and selling my photography. If you are in Chicago stop by and say hello at booth 102. I will be there 10 am – 5pm.

If you had a busy week too and you plan on relaxing at home and possibly checking out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I put together my favorites with a French theme of course. Things are selling out very quickly and the system even went down on day one but luckily I snagged a few things! Were you able to grab anything?

  1. Thank you for the list of what French women are wearing this summer. We leave for Paris late next week and I’ve been debating whether to take my wedge espadrilles because it’s on the cusp of fall. They’re coming with me! How could I even think if not bringing them? Now I may bring the black ones and the red ones.

    • My pleasure! You will need your espadrilles. Just remember if you forget anything there are always stores there 😉 I always find there is something I want that I can’t get back home. It is fun to observe the fashions at a café while people watching. Have a fabulous trip!
