• A weekend in Paris

    There is a reason why Friday post was skipped last week and now you know why! M and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s few days ahead in a short trip to Paris. We flew in on Friday, at God’s forsaken 4 am time o’clock with only 3 hours sleep. We checked in at Le Bonn hotel, completely jet-lagged which is sort of ridiculous considering the 1,5 h duration of the flight from Nuremberg airport.

    The hotelier recommended the Le Brazza Cafe for brunch honestly, I couldn’t have been happier with the choice, considering the off touristic location. While enjoying a delicious omelet, I had a feeling of witnessing a Woody Allen scene; the lady with the Chanel iconic bag drinking coffee next to construction worker with muddied wellies.

    We took a long walk with the rain and snowflakes adorning my beret, counting our blessings for being where we are. The cherry on top from this short trip has been meeting Stella from StellaAsteria.com and her fiance, we dined at Le Brendon. Apart from immaculate style, Stella has excellent taste in food, I’ve had the best risotto yet and the cafe is truly beautiful. Stay tuned for our next Paris post…

    I was wearing:

    Maje Goriage coat (here)

    Ted Baker bag (here), more economical (here)

    Star jeans (here), love these from S. Oliver (here)

    PS by Paul Smith scarf (here)

    Even & Odd beret (here)

    Compania Fantastica pullover (here)

    Zinda brogues (here)

    Roeckl gloves (here)

      OMG it looks incredibly dreamy and beautiful there!! I love these photos. the hazy grey skies makes it even more alluring. Paris has always been a place I wanted to go and explore. I took 6 years of French because of my obsession. Though I’ve forgotten a lot of it by now so it’s probably not very helpful haha
      Love this post! I can’t wait to read more
