Yesterday Carla sent me the photos from our shoot, and I’m absolutely thrilled with how they turned out. I’ve been wanting to have some professional photos done for ages, and what a treat it was to be able to do this in Paris! There are quite a few, and I’ll share them bit by bit over the next few months.
The striped cardigan was one of my finds from les soldes. It’s a Comptoir des Cotonniers piece that was marked down to 28 Euros! The black and white stripe is seasonless, and the weight is perfect for a good portion of the year back here in Southern California.
I always get lulled into a sense of dietary complacency when we’re in Paris. Bread! Butter! Wine! Cheese! Dessert! And because we do so much walking, I usually come home having dropped a pound or two. But then I bring my vacation eating home with me, and before I know it, the pants are feeling a bit snug. So I’ve had to refocus, restock the fridge with lovely fruit and veggies, and blinker myself going through the bakery section and past the baguettes (they’re never as good here anyway). I don’t believe in deprivation though, so do allow myself a little piece of some of the fabulous chocolate we toted home with my coffee after dinner.
We had jeune homme back home for the weekend, and it went quite well. I don’t know if it’s his age or new living situation, but he’s mellowed out a little bit, and we were able to take him out to a Thai restaurant for dinner, something we haven’t done in years.
It’s hard to believe, but we’ll be traveling again in a few weeks. I’ll be going to New York for a few days in early September to attend a cousin’s wedding (and possibly engage in some Fashion Week shenanigans, we’ll see…). And then we’re off to Japan later in September!
Does it take you a while to adjust after you’ve returned home from a vacation?
