Have I mentioned that we had some gorgeous late Spring weather in Paris? On the Sunday during our stay, the sun was out and we decided it would be a perfect day to hang out in Jardin du Luxembourg.
My friend Josephine (Chic At Any Age) had come over from London for the weekend, so some picture-taking was in order. On our way to the park, we spied this covered walkway which made a wonderful backdrop.
I’d picked up this Majestic Filatures knit linen jacket in Lyon. It’s the kind of jacket I’m always hunting for back home: lightweight, soft, and a lighter color that Plays Well With Others. Though the soft sea-blue color didn’t “wow” on the hanger, I really like how it looks on me. And to add a bit of serendipity, it matches almost exactly the color in this Alexander McQueen scarf I found last year in Las Vegas.
(If you’re not familiar with Majestic Filatures, they make some lovely simple knit pieces, especially in linen.)
Sunday in Jardin du Luxembourg
As we arrived at the park, a band was tuning up in the bandstand across from this cafe. We decided to sit and have a coffee and listen for a while.

These two dapper gents were enjoying the music…
Kids (and a few adults) were having fun sailing toy boats in the fountain.
Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the few parks in Paris where sitting on the grass is allowed, and Parisians take full advantage of it.
