Sunday in Paris

Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry (old, but adore these). Sweater: Autumn Cashmere via Bluefly. Jacket: Zara (sold out, but love the vest version). Jeans: Topshop. Bag: Chanel. Socks: Topshop. Boots: Balenciaga.
There is nothing lovelier than fresh flowers, and Paris markets lend new meaning to the word abundance. "La vie est une fleur. L’amour est le miel." (Life is a flower. Love is the honey). 
Victor Hugo
Mom and I stopped for some cafe and omelets on Rue de Buci and encountered "Gyrafrique", a one-man band who made us swoon over his incredible rendition of "Hallelujah".  I can't even pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time!
My beautiful mom on our way to get the world's BEST macaron from Boulangerie Carton(6 Rue de Buci 75006 Paris) It seriously puts all others to shame.
Went for afternoon tea at Mariage Frères.  I highly recommend this!  We had the most wonderful experience upstairs in their salon de the and spent another hour (could have spent 5) downstairs looking at the HUNDREDS of different teas and picking out Christmas gifts.  Back in the US, it can be challenging to find their product - my mom's goto is Bergdorf Goodman.  
We are staying at the MOST charming hotel in the BEST location (Hotel d'Aubusson) and every night when they turn down our bed, they leave a little gift.  Champagne, fruit, Hermes, and complimentary yoyo's?  Yes please.
Off to dinner at La Fontaine de Mars ( 129 Rue Saint-Dominique, 75007 Paris
01 47 05 46 44)!  Hat: Zara.
