Links I Love Week 37

It officially feels like Fall in Chicago even though it will start for another couple of weeks. We have had a few rainy colder days that had me reaching for sweatshirts and sweaters (this one I just ordered is a favorite already) before heading out on my walks. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I haven’t spent a Fall in Paris not in Paris since 2013 so this year is going to feel very different not being in Paris. (due to Coronavirus and travel restrictions).. My friend Graham stopped by on Friday on his drive to LA. He graduated from college this year and is on his way to make it big. (he asked if he could snap a photo of me during his visit)

Oh and very exciting news I almost forgot to share. I am working on a 2021 Paris calendar. If you have been following along you have been voting during the whole design process. It will be available for presale this week. I can’t wait to countdown to 2021 with A Year in Paris.

By now you know I love the brand Cuyana, I was surprised and happy to see they dropped their prices on some of their items. I have owned my top zip tote for 4 years and it is still going strong. I want this camera bag for Paris. I already checked in-store in NYC earlier this year and it works.

Save the Date for Chateau Sonoma’s Virtual French Flea Market

My Turkish rug arrived in record time (less than a week) but it didn’t fit the front room as I intended it to. So I moved it to the bedroom and I just ordered this rug for the front room. I love these rugs because they have instantly warmed up the new space. I have struggled with making this place feel like home and almost two months in and we are getting there.

  1. This is a wonderful feature. I love looking at all the links you post. Tons of work on your part and very appreciated by moi!

    • Thank you so much, Joanne! I look forward to Sundays every week. I really enjoy sharing these links each week with you.

  2. Oh that picture of the St. Germaine balconies is definitely going to have to grace my walls! I love it! I’m sorry you won’t be in Paris this fall. I had been going to Paris every 2 years since 2008 and was supposed to go back this year and am so sad not to be. This was going to be the year we finally left Paris and explored more of France! Hopefully next year!

    Thanks for sharing that Cuyana bag! I think that’s going on my Christmas list!
