Paris Promenade

What are YOU doing this Labor Day week-end? Shall we pretend we're in Paris. And go for a walk/promenade? Paris Mommy doing 'The Paris Walk'
*Note the long stride and no break at the knee...Meandering around high heels might be a stretch since Jean-Paul Goude designed them...Oh the other hand (or foot) shop till you drop?
Oui bien sur!
Merci Soledad for the wonderful illo...
Wanna run to work?
Wait it's Labor Day when we celebrate not working.
Still if it put me in Paris I would RUN!
The march of the poets on the left bank.
I'm game. Are you? Do you jog?
I do not. But I'm ready if it takes me to les jardins Tuilleries...
'Le dejeuner sur l'herbe' is more my style...
Or a Paris cafe?
Do you love to read maps in Paris? I do....sigh
Shall we just hang out..?
They say it's a good exercise to put yourself in another's shoes.
What do they say about browsing Paris pastry shop vitrines..?
If you hear of a rent-a-dog-for-a-walk agency in Paris?
Do tell.

Your work is stunning. I visited Paris for only 2 1/2 days...not enough time! Hope to get back there today. What a beautiful city.

So beautiful,
and I love that little Rauhaardackel (wire-haird dachshund)! So adorable.

Where is that March of the Poets on the Left Bank?


Roseann said...


I thought the Caption was above the picture of the walk with the lamposts.....

I see now that it's below the poster above.


Unknown said...

My goodness, if I had a stride that long, I might have legs that thin;)

Perhaps I'll practice this weekend.

@AshTree Cottage
I hope you will be practicing onsite IN Paris :)
Lucky you.

That March was in June at St.Sulpice

Susan said...

Je regret, not Paris but on the streets of Boise, Idaho!

Parisbreakfasts said...

Well there will be a A LOT of people out STRIDING this weekend!

Je m'appelle Cynthia said...

I will definitely be walking my dog.
Walking is fun - and I love your post. It's a reminder to be active.

Happy Labor Day weekend, Carolg!

I look forward to walking in Paris very soon ... only 19 more days until my trip.

Nikon said...

A full plate of art work, Carol.
The lamp post shot is stunning.
For Labor Day I wish I was in Paris, but I'll settle for you being the tour guide.

... well, now that Earl doesn't seem to be a threat .. out and about in CT ... have a good one ... love the whole St Suplice area ... bonjour

Just a question that you may or may not be able to explore...
I'm really curious about trendy Fr. nail polish for fall. Apparently the latest Chanel shade (Paradoxal) may be a bust??
I have a hunch that the trendiest color (at least in London - Illamasqua) is a dull olive green. Sounds strange, but looks great. I am trying to imagine Parisienne fingers with the latest nail colors holding tasty macarons. :)


Dianne said...

I love the long strides but I love even better that lovely 'more senior' lady just heading off home after a few little purchases ~ with her nice cosy felt hat and ~shoes that were made for walking~ oh! and Carol! rent a dog!!! sound superbe! specially a little West Highland White.

jeanette, mistress of longears said...

I think I'm going to hunt for that dull olive gren nail polish.

daniela said...

Sweet Freak said...

Bonne weekend, Carol!

I must admit that my plans call for exactly this today: strolling around the Haut Marais, maybe a visit to Galignane, and then finally making my way up the hill to Montmartre at the end of the day. Paris sends its love!

Katja said...

I already walked my dog in my new city of Cochrane, AB, Canada (near Calgary out west) and it was quite beautiful. However, your lovely post brought back memories of strollong through Paris on two trips with my BFF. I will be working on my blog this weekend - you have inspired me!

Pauliina said...

I love Paris, but you make me love it even more!!! Great photos!!!


Hi Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment - love the artistic eye on Paris. I live just outside Paris and my French life has become a major source of inspiration for many things including the buttercream-free cupcakes! A bientôt
