A LONG WEEKEND IN PARIS



Back in March, my boyfriend and I headed to Paris for a super long weekend to celebrate my birthday and to get some time away together. Having been to Paris a couple of times before, we decided to not set concrete plans on what to see and do and instead opted to wander aimlessly in search of new eating spots and galleries. March in Paris can be so unpredictable weather wise so can prove difficult when deciding what to pack. Thankfully I had packed a couple of warmer layers and my favourite Acne scarf as they were certainly needed on top of my lightweight coat!


MY FAVOURITE SPOTS

top tip: brunch is a pretty big thing now so book before you go

COFFEE STOP or AFTERNOON TEA | Angelina, Ladurée, Café de Flore
top tip: if you're cold or short for time, pop into Angelina and order a chocolat chaud - promise you it will be worth it!

DINNER | Le Dépanneur
Think homemade guacamole, nachos and salsa followed by veggie burgers and sweet potato fries and washed down with the best mojitos. This place gets ridiculously busy, i mean we waiting an hour and a half plus on a tuesday night so without a doubt book and ask for a table in the window it's great for people watching!


SHOP | Colette, Comme des Garçons, Conran Shop, Cos, Galeries Lafayette, Le Bon Marché, Merci



DON'T MISS | Jardin du Luxembourg, La Grande Épicerie, Musée d'Orsay, Place des Vosges, Sacré Coeur and if it's sunny head straight to the top of galeries layfayette with a bite to eat from their amazing food hall and soak up the sun.

  3. Your photos are lovely and your post took me back to one of my favourite trips of all time. Everything from beginning to end was brilliant when I visited Paris. As a lot of the sites I went to see were all in close proximity and the weather was great, it was nice to stroll everywhere as you get to see so much more.

  4. Unfortunaly, I could not see everything that I was planning, while I was in Paris, 2 months ago. I loved the "Welcome Cafe" on Rue de Rivoli, and of course, l'Aduree. Looks like you had fun there. Thanks for sharing these pics. xx
