Hotel de Ville – this building is actually not a hotel, but rather Paris City Hall.
Pretty little park at the western end of Isle-de-la-Cite.
Some of the faces on the Pont Neuf.

Today we didn’t have much on the agenda other than picking up some tickets for our various excursions, so we spent most of the day wandering around, starting out near Hotel de Ville, over Pont Neuf to Ile-de-la-Cité , and then around the 6th a bit, where we passed by this guy sharpening his knives against the curb.
He wanted to pose for a proper picture. We opted for lunch at a favorite spot from previous trips, Chez Fernand on Rue Christine (Style Spy also loves Le Christine a few doors down, definitely adding that one to the list for one of our other days) and had a fabulous Boeuf Bourgignon and a lovely Languedoc red with an earthy, mineral flavor that complemented the Boeuf perfectly.
Here’s the deuxieme ensemble: black jeans, burnt orange top, leopard scarf, black patent loafers and black leather jacket. You’ll probably see the jacket again for day three, as we’re headed to Reims for some tours of champagne houses, and it’s chilly dans les caves.
My brain was more functional on our second day, enough to note some of the popular style trends: boots, black tights, boots, large slouchy shoulder bags (still), scarves of all varieties, boots, leather motorcycle jackets, boots, eyeglasses in rectangular shapes, and did I mention boots? Short, mid-calf and knee high are all worn with skirts or pants tucked in. The only thing I’m sorry I left at home are my low-heeled knee-high black boots. Most of the boots I’ve seen are a bit softer and less literally equestrian than last year. Hmm, may have to do some shopping after all… 😉
