  6. Hi MT, have not had time to properly stop by for a while, the busy summer is upon us! But thanks for today's post, really pretty outfit, and thanks for the all the Parisienne tips, which I am storing up for my next visit there in April 2015. The beautiful handmade soaps and perfumes remind me of one of my favourite London shops, again, a historic firm, but this time Spanish in origin, Floris - worth a visit if you are ever in London (St James' area behind Piccadilly. Enjoy your summer and hope that you are well. Best wishes. s

  7. Is that a real operational traffic light in the second picture or is it just a prop for the shop? I would be confused if I were driving there! :-) Emily

  8. Dear MaiTai what an excellent idea to use the pareo as big scarf or shawl.
    I never have done that with my H pareos!

  11. Your lovely posts always bring a smile to my face, my dearest Mai Tai.
    Congratulations on your new pretty pareo! You look fabulous wearing it, as you always do..,
    May you wear it in good health and joy. Love the picture of the flower shop. Flower shops bring so much joy to a city and Paris has some very beautiful ones. <3
    Thank you for your lovely words on the last post. I am enjoying myself despite the extreme heat. No scarf weather right now, I'm afraid. Sending you much love and Summer hugs, Manuela

  12. Just lovely. All of it. You look so thin. Jealous! x

  13. What beautiful weather and brilliant blue skies you had while in Paris. That new pareo is the perfect compliment. Now, did the matching bikini come home with it?

    I love the bright flowers and that sweet little dog, who appears to be smiling back at you.

    Have a wonderful vacation. Don't stay too long, though. We miss you.


  14. Dear MaiTai, I love the cw of the MP pareo you chose, a perfect choice as always! Alas I have not had a chance to see it and the darker navy blue/black IRL which also catches my attention. Thank you for once again "taking us along" on your travels. Enjoy and be safe.. M xox

  15. Seems like you are always on vacation. Must be a wonderful life! :-)

  16. What a beautiful scarf and I've loved perusing your wonderful blog this morning. Love the tutorial on tying scarves…never my forte. Thrilled to be your newest follower!
