Plaid in Paris

Paris in the Fall was so lovely and I feel so fortunate to have been able to visit this beautiful city last year. My love and I spent two days here and it was relaxing in many ways not to have an itinerary. We usually have a packed schedule but in France, we just wandered and it was a refreshing change not to adhere to an itinerary, as much as we do enjoy our structured travels. These photos were taken in le Jardin de Tuileries which is such a lovely place to spend the afternoon, the Arc de Triomphe and along the Seine River.







I wore this dress with a turtleneck over it because it became chilly as the afternoon wore on. I've actually had it for years and it's one of my favorite tops in the winter because I can wear it with anything. was our final day in Europe before returning home and it was such a beautiful and lovely day to end the trip on.

My love and I did a lot of walking to the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs-Elysées to the Louvre Museum and then along the Seine river to the Notre Dame Cathedral just enjoying each other's company.

We had lunch at Frenchie to Go which was a 15 minute walk from the Louvre museum in the 2nd arrondissement. It was Saturday so there were a lot of people out and about enjoying the weekend and the walk took us through a new neighborhood to explore. Frenchie to Go is casual food with menu items like the reuben sandwich I had or the pulled pork sandwich which my man ordered. It wasn't particularly "french" food but we read it was great and the reviews were correct. 

If you are ever at Frenchie to Go, order their homemade ginger beer which tasted so nice and refreshing. Do NOT leave without ordering the cheesecake. In fact, if you're with a friend or lover, order two! You will be fencing with your forks for the last bite. Not sure if their toppings are seasonal but ours had nuts and fig and was one of the best desserts I've eaten in my life. I'm serious. 

Hope you enjoyed the post and that it has inspired you a little for your next trip. Come back soon!

XOXO
