Waltzing around Concorde

Look, that maman is scolding her petite fille in the Tuileries gardens. Last Friday I went to Madeleine
for a new sim card. Then I walked over to Concorde for a browse. Its still feels like taking a trip witho
ut packing.
I popped into Angelina. They usually have good 💌 paper envelope stuffers. But Paris is paper-free these days. Can you catch Covid from a business or perfume card? :(
A tray of stacked chocolate cups drew my eye.  I’ll come back when its chilly (its 80s-90s degrees).
                                Checks are IN for Fall
                            More checks and shorts...
 Laduree's latest macaron boxes are by Tokiodoki 
      By Sergio Legno, an illustrator obsessed with kawaii.
             Inside their perfect pastries. I resisted.
I didn’t resist 
Mado de Paris. New to 252, rue de Rivoli since January. I stopped in for an iced citronade, lemon ice cream and a lemon zest madeleine. Toute Lemon 🍋 
Beautiful lemon tea tins. Perfectly iced madeleines.
A classic French couple flirting in a cafe. What’s not to love about Concorde? Reliably beautiful in any light. I’m off to see the 
Sarah Moon exhibit at MAM. Then swim 🏊‍♀️ Then see Le Salon International du Livre Rare at Grand Palais. Then work ✏️ on the September Paris letter
                 Pray🙏 for the West Coast ❤️ 🐻

I don’t go uptown often enough,
But Place de la Concorde never disappoints

Sigh. This time last year we were in Paris for my birthday (tomorrow), seeing and taking in the same multi-layer dreamy experiences. This year??? Not so much.

Parisbreakfasts said...

That’s why there is a ParisBreakfast !!!

My job description..

Mais oui, but of course
In French it is ‘pied de poule’ ...chicken feet

What would we ever do without your glimpses of Paris? Such perfection - Concorde, cafes, fashion & I adore Mado. Mille mercis, Carol. (and Bear)

Thank you so much for this little trip to Paris. So needed right now.

Jeanie said...

It looks divine, every bit. Here up north it's a brisk 50 in the day and in the 30s at night. I want that sun, that outdoor cafe, those glorious madeleines! Oh, I miss it so! Thanks for taking me there. Glorious!

Annabella Bray said...

I love your fashion window reflection pics Carol! Tres arty 😉 👌

Parisbreakfasts said...

Awww...Thanks Suki
Its fun for me to share Paris ;))
Do you want to see more on Mado?
Oui o non??

Parisbreakfasts said...

Actually It gets me out of the house more...these little jaunts
Otherwise I’d go no where. I’m a Taurus homebody ;))

Please make suggestions of places I should go?

Besides Berthillon..

Parisbreakfasts said...

Paris windows are renown. I used to go one night a week with MesVITRINESNYC..but she has moved on.
I should go back to doing it...ouionon?
