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.
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.
