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.
I have been binge-watching Designated Survivor. It has me on the edge of my seat and so hard to watch alone.
My sheets have been one of the most top searched items on the blog. I love them and while they are an investment, I am happy every time I climb into bed. They were worth it!

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.
Sézane brought back two of my favorites, The Johnson coat which I wore all last year (totally worth the investment), and my polka dot blouse that was a first date staple when I actually went out on dates. (pre-pandemic)

This Flax Collection is everything. I want it all. Christmas gift. Just in case you were trying to plan ahead. The Canadian dollar conversion with shipping still makes it reasonable.
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.
