City of Lights (See Jane Admire)

I'm going on vacation in 21 days (but who's counting) and while I'm totally unprepared, my excitement is overwhelming.  I know my days will be jam packed with sight-seeing, walking, and shopping, but I take comfort in the fact that I'll have some spare time to leisurely meander in Paris + Rome, as I've already visited.  I cannot wait to people-watch in Paris.  It's the city that begs you to sit back and watch the passersby--the styles, the clothes, the sidewalk cafes, and all that is chic.

Until then, I shall bask in their effortlessness.

Also, if you have restaurant/shopping/site recommendations for Paris or Rome, please email me as I'd love any suggestions!

  9. European style is so casual chic, I love it! I have never been to Paris, but spent some time in Rome last fall ~ Definitely get some shopping in near the Spanish Steps... and as long as there are fresh veggies in the windows, you can't go wrong with food!

  20. I have a question for you! When you travel to these fine cities and want to look stylish and people watch stylish people what shoes do you wear?! ha! I am having this dilemma simply because comfy walking shoes aren't that nice to look at. What do you do?

  21. Paris: Le Marais. Yukiko in le marais has the BEST vintage chanel pieces.

  22. Hi Brigitta -

    I usually wear sandals in the summer and flat boots in the winter. I actually just bought some TOMs (they're around $40) and I think they're simple enough to wear with dresses/shorts in the summer--I have a feeling I'll be wearing them all over Europe! No big white sneakers for me :)

    Lisa - thanks for the tip!
