No trip to Paris would be complete without a little fashion. Here are some of my favorite boutiques that I found while shopping in Paris: Comptoir des Cotonniers, Heroines, Des Petits Hauts, and Ekyog.

A few more posts about Paris, and then back to regular life. I spent a lot of time in the Marais area of Paris, which is full of cute boutiques and lovely cafes. I had delicious crepes at Breizh Cafe and a tasty quiche and crumble at Rose Bakery I also bought perfume for both myself and the hubby at L’Artisan Parfumeur. The Marais is similar in spirit to Soho in the New York, but with a distinctively French feel.

Just in case you were wondering where the Eiffel Tower was hiding in all my posts about Paris, I did go see the major sights. In order, we have Sacre Coeur, the Louvre both outside and inside, the Mona Lisa, the you know what, the Pantheon, the Arch de Triomphe, and can you guess what’s hiding in the last photo?

Spend a lovely Saturday in the Montparnasse area of Paris. Lots of children playing in the Luxembourg Gardens and cute shops on la rue Brea.

It doesn’t often snow in Paris, or so I’m told by the Parisians, and all of this has already melted. But it was beautiful while it lasted.

Some shots of our first day in Paris. It’s been cold, wet, and rainy here, but that hasn’t stopped us from seeing the sights. Yesterday, we strolled down the rue St. Honore, the arcade at the Palais Royale, and visited several cute shops along the way.
