I never get tired of admiring the clipped rows of plane trees in Paris' squares, avenues and parks. This time of year they are especially beautiful.. their gloriously coloured leaves make each tree look individual and special.
This week's trip was 'girls only' (entre copines). It was great fun, and involved visits to several H locations (they are just as obsessed as I am). Miss you already, my dear J and C, and hope you have a safe journey back.
It was also wonderful to meet new people...chance encounters, because of this blog. A warm hello to Barbara and her lovely friend, and to charmant Jérémie. So nice to have met you!
Inspired by the combination of greys and browns in the garden of the Palais Royal, I teamed my new grey sweater (which I found last Sunday at the local market, for 10 EUR) with grey corduroy jeans, and chocolate 'Brides de Gala' 90 dip dye carré
Capsule pieces: grey corduroy trousers and sweater
Shoes: grey patent flats
Accessories: Hermès 'Brides de Gala' 90 dip dye carré, 'Quadrige' enamel bracelet and 32 Kelly in ebene
Scarf tying method: fold your scarf into the basic bias, and feed ends through a shawl ring, both coming from the same direction (for a similar look without using a shawl ring, try a low ascot knot)
It has been lovely and mild since my return, but when it gets colder, I'd replace the grey patent flats with dark brown ankle boots. For outdoors, I'd wind the scarf once around the neck before securing the ends, and add a dark brown jacket or coat.
PS. No new window displays at FSH... the Christmas windows were not installed yet (the corner window was still the same as last time), and those along the Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré and the Rue Boissy- d'Anglas were already curtained off for the redecoration.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone xx
