Shop Left Bank in Summer in Paris here
Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day. I hope you are enjoying the start of summer with school ending and the warm weather. Henri and I had a low-key weekend after last weekend’s very busy Wells Street. We visited the farmer’s market, cooked, and finished This Is Us. Rest and homecooked food is precisely what I needed this week.
I have some upcoming travel, so I am researching and planning that for the rest of the week before I leave town. I will share more about my destination and plans this week.
Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.

This classic Italian destination just limited tourists. We were able to go last summer as the world opened up and it was magical with not that many people. I want to go back again soon. Even with the restrictions, I hope you will take the opportunity to visit Amalfi Coast.
Speaking of Amalfi, you must visit Capri. We went last summer and loved it. I have been a few times. Here is Vogue’s guide to Capri. I was happy to see Hotel Luna in it which is where we stayed. You can also see my Amalfi Guide here.
You can now stay on the grounds of Versailles for a very unique experience. This may be older news to some but I have heard more and more people stay here and only great things. If you can fit it into your budget, it’s worth booking.
