Links I Love: Week 23 | Peonies Truck in Paris

Shop Peonies Truck in Paris Print Here

I am back from a lovely weekend in Paris. In case you missed it, you can see a full recap here. I will be spending the week in Chicago editing images from my latest trip to add to The Print Shop and the Wells Street Art Fair. If you are in Chicago, I will be at the Wells Street Art Festival next weekend. As soon as I have my booth number, I will share it. Henri will hopefully be making an appearance as long as the weather is decent.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.

Links I Love: Week 23

Airlines’ premium economy trick 

How to pair food and wine NYT

New pop-up in Paris. I had a few people mention this to me. We couldn’t get reservations on short notice, but it didn’t look full when we passed by. 

I am crushing on this eyelet dress in white for summer. Waiting for it to go on sale. (Impatiently) 

A recap of my weekend in Paris. Everything from where I ate, stayed, and explored. 

Wearable sleep trackers might be worth the hype. I wear my apple watch to bed and I have been using a sleep tracker since the start of 2021. My fiancé and I compete on our sleep. 

The baking notification project. This is genius. My neighbors have benefited well from my pandemic and stress baking over the past couple of years. 

I am shocked to report that I saw Birkenstocks for sale in Paris. I love mine and would happily walk the streets of Paris wearing them.

This dry shampoo gave life to my hair, especially while traveling to Paris. 

8 cookbooks coming out this summer via NYT

I impulsed purchased this Clarin’s eye serum duty-free. It is plant-based which I love. I will report back. They have friends and family right now so you will be able to snag it at a discount. 

How to talk to kids about mass shootings

It’s an age by age post that could be helpful to parents NYT

I recently bought this Boden sweater which arrived while I was in Paris. I wore it for date night this week. It will be perfect for cooler nights of summer. I got a size 6 and it fits perfectly. You can see it on me here!

All eyes on bookshelf design

These are the no-show socks I wear with my Madewell sneakers.

Some people argued with me on this one, but you still need a COVID test to enter the US regardless of vaccination status. 

My mini quiches recipe is perfect for weekend baking and you can pop them in the fridge or freezer for the week.

My sister always raves about these glow peels so I ordered them to try. 

I am loving the straw version of the Madewell transport tote. Perfect for summer beach or market trips. 

I got an advanced copy of “Jacqueline in Paris” by Ann Mah.

You can preorder it now to be released in September. I can’t wait to read it. It was this article in the NYT that inspired the new book. 

Diptyque just launches a new collection for the home. I ordered this odor-eliminating candle that has a basil scent for the kitchen. I love a clean kitchen and can’t wait to try this new one out. 

Half Wave hair is going to be everywhere this season

Date Night makes a comeback

See a quick video glimpse of a day in Paris 

This is the coffee maker I want to register for. After asking Instagram followers what they thought of this machine, it was an immediate YES! Everyone raved about it. (except for one person) 

Dress like a coastal grandmother all summer long with these Amazon finds

7 great biking cities (and where to ride) including Paris NYT

The pleated midi skirt is a trend I saw over and over in Paris.

It’s not easy to find now but I have a hunch, we will see it more next spring/summer. I found this one and this one available now depending on your budget. 

20 classic French dishes everyone needs to try

This week’s best sellers Skincare was a fan favorite. 

I am in full-on Wells Street Art Fair prep mode so that means I am preparing a lot of products to sell at the festival next weekend. I listened to this podcast episode and watched this movie on Amazon Prime. 

Six beautiful castles to visit in France

I bought this Sézane dress in khaki for Italy this summer and these sandals in chocolate. (gifted) I ordered the in an 8 and they are perfect. I am usually an 8.5. Their newest collection is out now. You can preview it here. 

How oysters are farmed off the coast of France

This Longchamp weekender bag is perfect for travel. I have it in two colors. It rolls up small and can be unrolled if you want to add another suitcase for last-minute purchases in Paris or any other destination.

This short-sleeve linen shirt is too cute for summer. Comes in multiple colors!

  1. I waited one day after your post about the Boden sweater and only sizes 2 and 10 were available. There have been some cooler nights when it would have been perfect. It looks terrific on you. I did get the marinière cotton tee from French Wink, but the sweater would have been warmer.

  2. Birkenstock in Paris lol. Rebecca check Mephisto shoes in France, gorgeous and great for your feet

  3. Been reading your Sunday links for a couple of years now, but I’m reconsidering it now. Your latest blog contains six links to articles that require a subscription service–five for the New York Times and one for the Atlantic. I can’t afford to pay to read The Atlantic or the New York Times. Why not limit your blog to just one or two? If you don’t want to, you may want to at least not list the paywall links in first and second place in your blog. That was really a turnoff and I really wanted to stop reading your blog at that point…
