Summer in Paris
There's something about Paris in the Summer time that is just so beautiful. The sun is up till late into the evening, the rosé seems to taste extra good on a hot, Summers' afternoon, and there is a buzz in the city as the locals are winding down for holidays. We spent some time in Paris before heading down to little town called Cassis in the South of France to shoot our campaign for our next collection (stay tuned!). If you only have a few days in Paris, scroll down to read our three easy must do and sees that aren't the Eiffel Tower or a touristy museum.
1. Walk Everywhere
One of the best parts of Paris, is how easy it is to walk everywhere! Skip the metro and stroll around the city as there is always something to see. We loved these little book stalls set up along the river. Shakespeare and Co Bookstore is a favourite among tourists, but they have a little cafe next door with THE BEST cold brew. Then pop in next door and try and choose just one book!
The Oversized Scallop Bag was perfect for exploring all day! Shop the Scallop Bag here.
2. The Locals Coffee
Next stop... more coffee and the best avo toast in the city. Fragments Cafe is a must if you're an avocado fiend and take your coffee pretty seriously, like we do! It's the choice of the locals and we can see why, and when most of the city closed down for holidays, it stayed open all Summer long!
3. Picnic in a park
Because you can never have enough cheese and bread in France... make the most of the long days and pretty parks and pack yourself a picnic for the afternoon. We stocked up on croissants from a local boulangerie, fresh fruit at the markets and of course cheese! Our oversized, square Travel Towels were perfect for our picnic, being so lightweight, we could carry them around all day until we found the perfect picnic spot. Then after our picnic, we took a nap under the trees on the inflatable Beach Cushions.
