Paris ~ Village Royal

Stepping out of FSH, back onto the 'Rue Boissy d'Anglas' and continuing my stroll through the 8th arrondisment .. heading towards one of my favorite shirt shops, which is just a stone throw away.

I bought a simple white shirt and left the shop via it's back entrance, entering the 'Village Royal'. It's a charming passage, connecting the rue Boissy d'Anglas with the Rue Royale and has a lovely courtyard feel... a true haven in the midst of the bustling streets it is surrounded by.

the boutiques too have a cosy atmosphere

and there is a lovely little restaurant called 'Le Village' (Village Royal, 25 Rue Royale, 75008 Paris, Tel +33 1 40 17 02 19), a perfect place to have lunch or drinks after a visit at FSH.

When my starter arrived..

..I could not help noticing the perfect color match to my shopping bags ;-)
