Links I Love Week 44

It has been a busy week recovering from jet lag and jumping back into work. I have been nonstop since and still have a lot more work to catch up on. Plus, planning a wedding in the 4th quarter was a brilliant and crazy idea. New blog posts were published and The Francophile Gift Guide is up so there is some progress. I have yet to dive into editing photos from the trip and can’t wait to share some with you on November 1. 

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for links I love.

I have my eye on this emerald dress for the rehearsal dinner for our wedding. I feel I could wear it more than once and use it for an upcoming holiday party too.

This is the Polène bag I was carrying in Paris in black. It is such a fun design and the quality is amazing. They have an NYC store as well as a Paris location. You can purchase directly online. 

Why you need a hot water bottle at home I just got one and I don’t know why I waited so long

A pleated skirt was one of my callouts for trends in Paris this one is on major sale. Also, this one is a mini and is 40% off. I love the red version for the holidays with a white button-down and boots or heels.

Per the recommendation of my friend Rose (who is also a reader), I ordered, “The Sweetness of Forgetting” right now I have much free time to read so I will be packing a few books for my honeymoon in December. I think my fiancé will encourage me. Our last beach trip was in 2019 and I think I drove him nuts not having something I wanted to read.

Caudalie surprised me with a little care package with some amazing products. I purchased A LOT when I went to the spa in Bordeaux. They sent over the eye cream with the best applicator which I love along with the Premier Cru lotion which so many of you raved about. It’s made a difference already on my dry skin.

I know I rave about my Blondos all the time and last week I saw they added a brown suede option. Not only are these boots comfortable, but they are also waterproof so perfect for walking around Paris. You can see them on me here. I ordered the brown in size 8.5 and definitely keeping them!

We have been watching, “The Watcher” on Netflix this past week, and not only is the house beautiful but Nora’s outfits are stunning and I want her whole closet.

Chicago just got our first Vuori store. I love their joggers and have gifted my fiancé pants and shorts as well. It was incredible to see everything in person because now I want so many more items. This is a great spot for gift ideas for him.

  1. Hello again. I would just like to know if I can exchange my most recent purchase of a small Paris calendar. I was not aware that it came in the larger size. I see you are now back from Paris and if you could email me with what I need to do to proceed with this exchange… That would be helpful. Merci!

  2. I love the boots you are wearing at the beginning of this blog. More information please on brand, colors, and where to find.

    Curious to know what you do with all the beauty products you acquire. Mine seem to last a long time, and I have so many samples that never get used. Do you periodically toss or give away?

    Wishing you all the best with upcoming wedding and holidays ahead. You are taking on a lot! Really enjoy your bi-weekly blog, so thanks for all the useful information and bringing Paris to me every week.
