It’s hard not to fall in love with Paris. Her architectural streets, her dancing light, her chalky tonality bathing you in softness and drowned in French accents. It was a weekend away, short but everlasting in my memories, swept up in a hotel suite from a dream and made simple with long afternoon walks with nowhere in particular to go… just the way I love to see Paris.
At the vanity below in Triumph’s Amourette lingerie I discovered on this shoot which was a celebration of feminine bodies of all kinds. I loved the look so much on the girls I had to have my own.
On a recommendation from a French friend we discovered Restaurant Derrière which had wonderful seasonal light fare in a tucked away courtyard down a narrow street. The location and vibe was so relaxing we ending up spending the entire afternoon sipping tea and reading the paper, a simple luxury.

Our favorite spot in Paris is a little place called Les Fines Gueules in the 1st arrondissement
We have been going there for the past 5 Autumn trips to Paris. Tucked away on a quiet neighborhood street in an old stone building, it’s quintessentially French. No printed menus, only an old chalk board they pass around. Seasonal, fresh and unpretentious, food just the way it should be. On this last visit we got a special treat. The bartender took us down two levels to the cellar where we discovered rows and rows of wine bottles, some covered in dust, some in modern day packaging. I love the secrets you can discover if you just wait and be patient for them to find you….
Above, in a new watch design I recently discovered called Bravur which is a perfect casual wrist watch designed around the idea of simplicity.

I know I’m “that person” but I am enamored with your long black blazer! Where is it from?
Thanks Mina- It’s from MAIYET a few seasons ago. I wear it all the time, so versatile and so classic.
Wow, so beautiful!!! Back to the past, where Bogart and Bergman met in Casablanca 😉
Incredible photos, I am so glad that I found your blog
Our Parisian weekends are not as chic as yours, but can’t wait for our next time in there
Me too. Xx

Your Paris photos are always like something out of a dream…
You capture her so perfectly! <3
That’s how it feels to me to be there, everytime 🙂
Your photos of Paris are a dream. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there five years ago, and I long to go back. You and Kevin are such a beautiful couple, too; I absolutely adore your style.
Wow this is incredibly gorgeous! I particularly loved the deep burgundy choice of outfit, and the sensibly practical but obviously high-quality shoes. You seem to evoke a sense of true chic and mindfulness in choosing your pieces to suit the occasion.
I’m working to expand the definition of “chic” to include the inner spirit of true elegance, and aim to encourage readers to be Confident Happy Inspired and Connected, and thus turn “CHIC” into an acronym as well. You’re a true inspiration.
so gorgeous & romantic
I admire the way you talk about Paris using “Her”,
like if nothing can hold that much of beauty but a Woman!
If you don’t mind me asking about the camera you used in here and the film?
thanks for sharing this awesomeness.
I adore Paris so scrolling through these photos was amazing. Thank you for sharing!
