More Summer in Paris


For Summertime they have freshly-churned ice cream outside Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées. But no one was serving 😳

Still I studied the flavors carefully…as always

Then went next door and got some surprisingly nice apricot gelato at Pomme de Pain (a French fast food chain) for 1/2 the price😊
You can always tell out-of-towners. They’re better dressed than the rest of us.
Shorts are IN for some people. 
Black lace bra tops are IN…also for some people.
Yesterday I saw men’s pajama bottoms with the hems dragging on the ground. IN.
Showing your mid-riff for some people is IN. And not for others. 
I noticed pairs of shoppers tend to dress in look-alike outfits or matching colors. 
His and her top-knots. 
Galeries Lafayette has provided video games for the guys while the gals shop.
They have brought inside the faux flowers from theflower cafes for their downstairs food hall. 
Everyone is still drinking those Aperol cocktails this Summer and sitting on terrasses.
I did this Summer watermelon in Volterra a few years back. 
Some real Summer people. I’ve been feeling nostalgic for Summer passing for a few weeks now. You too? You can still get the Luxembourg chairs + a FREE Paris Parks map FYI.

    2. Me too! Wide leg black pants touching the ground, white t-shirt that says, "Paris is always a good idea" and my straw fedora.

    I love to see what women in Paris are wearing. Loose also suits me, or a floaty dress, especially in the heat.

    Nostalgia for this glorious summer is indeed setting in. Soon enough we’ll be counting the days till next summer!

  5. Personally I wear the black bra lol out shopping;) I think I remember that watermelon..:)

  6. Those carts aren't self-serve ??? ;)

      I wish 🍦🍦🍦

  7. I'm not about wearing a bra as a top out and love staying home where I don't have to wear one at all - most of those trends are not for me. I love summer.

  8. Somehow I think the greatest favor I could do for fellow Parisian shoppers would be to select an ensemble that neither reveals midriff or bra -- black or otherwise!

  9. black lace bra???? I wonder how that will translate in the midwest?!

  10. What outfit suits your summer? I’m all about loose linen!
