Links I Love : Week 35

paris in september

I am back from Florida and Chicago feels as though Autumn is here. Hopefully, it is only temporary. I am not quite ready for sweater season. This week was filled with highs and lows. I am working on a project that will be hopefully be announced in two weeks. Until then, I am doing my best to focus on work and stay busy. How was everyone’s week? 

October in Paris is full of fun activities. If you are headed to Paris in October (I will be there) here are a few things to do courtesy of La Cuisine Paris who created this great roundup. 

Don’t miss my Paris Packing List for Autumn

Jazz in Paris. One of my favorite things to do. There is a whole festival you can enjoy towards the end of the month. I can’t wait to check this one out. Fingers crossed for good weather.

The 8th arrondissement is often overlooked by tourists but it is one of my favorite arrondissements. I recently found Hotel Royal Madeleine which just reopened in the area and Parc Monceau is a beautiful park to picnic and stroll through.

Sézane has a new collection out and I have this black and white top I just purchased. It would be so cute with a pair of black pants or a skirt and of course the perfect red lip.

Cuyana just added new colors to my favorite travel bags! I am crushing on this blush. 

I mentioned these in my Travel Essentials post last week.

I always thought I would find love on an airplane (since I travel so much) It may be more common than you think! Has it happened to you? I have two friends who married someone they met on a plane.

My first job offer out of college was from Coach, but I ended up taking a different opportunity. This week, I was invited to preview the Fall Collection for 2018 at the Michigan Ave store and it was a full circle moment. The whole staff couldn’t have been nicer and I came home with not one but two special things. (one I have to keep secret for another few weeks!) 

I have wanted a pair of over the knee boots since Devil Wears Prada, 2006. Welcome home to these beauties. They are surprisingly very comfortable and will be heading to Paris with me in October.

  1. Thank you for the October packing list! I am headed to Paris for the first time at the beginning of the month, and I was looking for a few suggestions.

    • Hi Bryanna,

      You are welcome! I am so happy you found it as a great resource. Have a great trip. October is a great time to visit Paris!


  2. So to answer your question from a previous comment to a post, yes, that Blush color is the shade I got my Cuyana toiletries/travel bags in. It is so lovely, and I’m glad I chose that color. It’s a shade I cannot wear on my person without looking ill, but it’s splendid as an accessory. 😋

  3. Always love these links! I would maybe add a lightweight pair of gloves to the October in Paris packing list if you’re going towards the end of the month. My first visit to Paris was in late October 2015. My lightweight wool coat was good for the evenings but my hands got cold so I ended up buying a pair from a street vendor. I still have them though so I suppose they’re a lovely souvenir (they’re really cute!) so….scrap everything I just said and buy gloves in Paris. 🗼😉
