Off to the City of Lights

So I’ve been waiting to tell you that tomorrow I am off to Paris for the week. My sister and I have been plotting for months and are excited to be taking my girls for their first visit to the city of lights. We hope we’ve concocted an entertaining mix of culture and fun with plenty of free time for exploring.

I hope to be reporting in next week with some short travelogue posts for you armchair travelers. And you can of course always follow along on instagram for a little dose of francophile fun. There might even be a little stylish shopping involved. So à bientot – for those of you who do not subscribe, be sure to check in for the latest posts from Paris!

  1. Have a wonderful, wonderful time, Stacey. And please be sure to bring some warmish things to wear too–it has been colder this year all throughout France, Provence too!
    Enjoy it all…

  2. Take some sweaters…It has been delightful here in Beaune(where we spend our summers) but a bit on the cool side…don’t forget to try Ze Kitchen Galerie…really excellent…

  3. Bon voyage! The best trip to teach young-ens about style, food, slowing down and being less electronic (smelling the roses and being present), and did I say style and food? Have fun and report back with PHOTOS!!!

  4. Dear Stacey and T.,

    Have a fantastic time! Maybe think about a fashion post for WVFC? With the collective aesthetic sense that you and your sister have, you could give us a fantastic current view of what the Parisians are wearing this summer!

  5. Hi Stacy,
    I’m reading this as I sit with my daughters in the Jardins du Luxembourg!!! We leave for Provence tomorrow. We had a fabulous dinner last night at a very new, very chic restaurant called Monsieur Bleu. (high style decor, and not blue at all) It is right near the Eiffel Tower and at 10:55pm we left the restaurant and walked onto a bridge to watch the twinkling lights go om. It was a truly magical moment. Enjoy your trip!!!

  6. Bon Voyage! Oh my, with all of the great restaurant reservations you’ve received, I want come come over as well. Looking forward to seeing Paris through your eyes! enjoy.

  7. Wishing you the best of travels, Stacey! I can’t wait to hear about your adventures! – Kim
