In September, I returned to Paris. It had been almost ten years and it was definitely worth the wait! My visit was filled with cafe-hopping, sightseeing and champagne-sipping. Above are some snaps that I wanted to share with you! Let’s jump right in… 1. The tiny Boot Cafe has an adorable blue exterior and excellent coffee drinks! 2. The gorgeous view from the rooftop terrace at Printemps. 3. Cafe Kitsuné, where the cool girls & one pigeon get their lattes. 4. Palais-Royal, I love this black and white beauty (one of my favorite spaces in Paris). 5. A moment of sunny respite at Place des Vosges, Paris’ oldest planned square (commissioned in 1605 by Henri IV). 6. The always delicious Bar du Central (the waiter’s apron is essential to bistro chic). 7. One of my favorite Parisian doors on rue du Perche. 8. Stunning Art Nouveau architecture inside the Galeries Lafayette. 9. One of my favorite cafés in the Place Saint-Germain des Prés is Le Bonaparte (it’s sunny terrace offers breathtaking views of the abbey church across the street). 10. Solitary thoughts down a leafy path at the beautiful Jardin du Palais-Royal. 11. Afternoon coffee with a side of French expression at Fragments Paris. 12. Uncover hidden gems along rue Cler, one of Paris’ most beloved market streets (Les Floralies has the best roses). 13. The puff pastries from this sweet little shop, La Maison du Chou, are so good, Chanel served them at Paris fashion week. 14. It’s no wonder the Impressionists loved the Tuileries – the gray, austere light of Paris’ famously overcast days make the green gardens appear even greener. 15. A sunset stroll along the Seine. 16. I love the charming blue façade of À la Corde Pincée which means “At the rope pinch”. This store specializes in the restoration of harpsichords – so French!
