Links I Love Week 33

Parisian balcony | Links I Love Week 33

I spent part of the week at home in Ohio visiting my dad and friends. It was a quick trip but always great to be home. I was able to fly home early Thursday morning and spend some quality time with Henri and catch up on work. Summer in Chicago is special and we really try to take advantage of the warmer weather while we have it. I hope you enjoy this week’s links I love with your coffee and croissants.

This weekend I was able to work on some wedding details. (shoes, dress, and ceremony details)  I am spending the afternoon with my friend Danielle and her girls. 

Links I Love Week 33

These colors will rule interiors in 2023. My favorite Homburg Grey that is in our front room is a top color. I would like to think we are trendsetters 😉

I made this Mango Kale Salad with a variation of this cilantro lime dressing from Love and Lemons

Sisley Paris came out with an enzyme exfoliating mask I am dying to try. I love their products so much and while they are an investment they work great and a little goes a long way. 

I enjoyed Cupcakes and Cashmere trip recap to Paris this summer. It is always fun to see the perspective of someone else’s trip to Paris. 

This sound machine has been a game changer for both sleep and work. I turn it on to block out any noise while I work and it also helps me sleep at night. It was under $50 and such a great investment. If you have a noisy work from home situation, you will want to look at adding one of these.

I recently watched the Shania Twain documentary on Netflix. I love Country music and really enjoyed her story. And I was surprised how much I still remembered and wish I had the opportunity to see her in concert one day.

It is easier than you think and the fresh ingredients at the farmer’s market help so much. I want to put this on everything!

Samantha Brown shares 5 easy packing tips. I loved her growing up and she definitely influenced my career path as a kid. 

I ordered this Boden blouse in a size 6 and I am obsessed. It comes in 3 colors and I am tempted to buy the navy or the wine color. It is adorable and perfect to tuck into a pair of jeans and pair with ballet flats for fall. 

Another piece I recently ordered and loved is this v-neck cashmere cotton sweater from J.Crew. I took the sizing notes into consideration (it runs big) and purchased an XS which was perfect. I have it in navy and I know I will wear it on repeat.

I haven’t worn heels in forever but know I will want some height. And I need to make a decision about my dress fitting. I am deciding between something like this or this one

My spruce throw blanket from Boll and Branch is back in stock for Fall/Holiday. This will sell out quickly. I love it for naps. It lives on my couch and Henri loves it too.

Traveling to the south of France this summer or fall? Here is a guide to Nice to inspire your planning. 

Your pandemic puppy was not a mistake. This one made me cry. It’s a NYT article. If you have limited access, this one is worth it! 

This week’s best sellers include my favorite gift to give. 

I am crushing on this oversized cashmere sweater for Reformation. It’s a perfect café sweater for a rainy people-watching day in Paris this fall or winter. 

These new luxury hotels in Paris have the most stunning rooftops. I stayed in one of the hotels earlier this year. 

I am getting a lot of questions about the necklace that I wear every day.

It is a locket from Monica Vinader with a chain as a second necklace. It was a gift from the brand that I love. I am still trying to figure out what is going on inside the locket. My niece votes for Henri. You can save 20% off the locket with code REBECCA20 at checkout.

  1. Hey Rebecca… this 60+ boomer loves your posts… lol… as to the ballet flats, please check out the J Crew fall ‘22 ballet shoes…. and especially the ballet flat mules in cheetah… so damm cute and so COMFORTABLE… J Crew has a new creative director and it shows.. great looking clothes…

  2. Hi, Rebecca — love your posts, and all of the links you include. SO much fun! As for the wedding shoes, it’s hands-down the “Carrie” with the crystal embellishment — they are gorgeous! The thinner heel might not work so well on the cobble-stoned streets in Paris, but…. for that special day, they’d be perfect. Congratulations, and good luck — cheers!

    • Hi Sharon,

      Thank you for the advice. I love the “Carrie” style too. It is very much me. The wedding won’t be in Paris so I think we are safe with the cobble-stoned streets for now. xo

  3. Bonjour Rebecca ,
    OMGosh so many great articles as always ! I just ordered the Cashmere JCrew cardigan and a cute pair of square toed Ballet flats from Schutz. I’m heading to Nice beginning of October with my cousin. Menton is on the list as well as St Tropez and Cannes . I’m also hoping to find a cute pied à terre in Nice or VFSM for my retirement from the airline industry in the not too distant future . Your blog/website has helped with making it happen ! Merci Beaucoup !

    • Hi Donna,

      Thank you so much! I hope you love the cashmere J.Crew cardigan as much as I do. I hope you have the best trip to Nice in October. Menton is beautiful and there is a lot to discover in St. Tropez and Cannes as well. Wishing you lots of luck with the pied à terre hunt! xo

  4. I look forward to your blog and always enjoy having a fresh cup of coffee while snuggled under a throw while reading it. Dreaming Paris Dreams. I have just booked DH and I a Christmas on the Seine river cruise. A dream come true!

    • Thank you so much, Kaye! The Christmas on the Seine river cruise sounds dreamy. Please keep me posted how you enjoy it. xo

  5. Love your weekly links! I wore the Naturalizer Vera shoes at my wedding, and they are shockingly comfortable! I tried on the Margaux in store in Manhattan and they weren’t the perfect comfort. Wanted to share in case it’s helpful.

    • Yes! This helps so much. I really wanted the Margaux shoes to put our date on the bottom. But leaning towards the Carrie shoe in cream. I need to order and try them on. Thank you! xo
