Photo Diary: Paris

my view from a cruise along the Siene

 Hôtel de Ville 
 The Luxembourg Palace
 How cute is this dog at the Luxembourg Gardens?
 Oh Paris...you and your cute windows. 
Flower markets on flower markets on flower markets
 I have a soft spot for historic and gorgeous architecture
 Although I didn't go in, the d'Orsay is nice to look at
 *cue sigh because Paris is just so beautiful*
 blooms in the gardens 
 a tranquil moment in the Luxembourg Gardens 
So so so Parisian

I swear this artist was secretly posing for me.
It's been a while since I've posted here, right? 
After some much needed rest from my almost month long travels, I'm getting back into blogging. I have so many pictures to share with you guys and this is only the first part. I came to Paris as part of a photography program and I was shooting non-stop everyday. But before I get ahead of myself, let me start from the very beginning. My flight was out of JFK, so I flew up to the city a day early. I didn't have much time, but I did have brunch at Lafayette (so so good) and dinner at Balthazar in Soho to prep my palate for France. I also walked around Washington Square Park Area a bit and found some truly gorgeous town homes. After a 7 hour flight to Paris (I finally watched Divergent and I'm obsessed) I arrived at CDG with a little unexpected delay. Apparently, no one was allowed entry into the baggage claim because a bomb squad had to explode a suspicious bag...not something that happens everyday. Don't worry though, nothing happened. ;) I was impressed by Paris from the car ride to my hotel: the cafés, the flower markets, the apartments, and the people. I was fascinated from day 1. So here, I share with you some photos from my first couple days. I will have a couple recap posts from Paris and also one for Venice, so stay tuned!

xoxo,

Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I posted so I wanted to share this outfit I wore to dinner in Paris the other night. I found this embellished skirt at Zara ( on sale!) and paired it with the soft-as-ever Club Monaco tee's for a more casual look. I didn't have time to take many shots as the light wasn't good, but I think I've captured the essence of the outfit in these two photos. Dressy, yet comfortable.

Bonjour from Paris

I promise I didn't forget about you guys.
 S & P has been a little quiet lately, but I'm going to get back into the normal posting routine soon! As you might know, I'm in Paris right now and I will be for the rest of the week! I just wanted to check in here and share some snaps from my Instagram. I have ton of photos to show you guys and I can't wait. You can follow me & my travels to France (and Italy!) via my Instagram

Eshatki top c/o // Gap shorts // TOMS sunglasses
I'm not one to wear tons of pink, but I couldn't pass up this pop of pink on this top. 
I got this top from eShakti, an online shopping website with tons of options and customizable pieces! I was lucky enough to pick out something and I loved this top. It can serve as both a bathing suit coverup or pair it with jeans for dinner. I also love the tassel component, tassels are just so fun. The awesome part about eShakti is that you can create a one of a kind piece. Love this top but not the sleeves? No problem. You can opt for shorter or longer sleeves. 


You can check out eShakti on their  FacebookPinterest & Twitter.

I love this little dining table vignette – brass candleholders, a teal teapot and coasters stand out against the all-white kitchen.

A lot of scandi-style interiors feature white floors, but Pelle chose black (and beautiful red orientals) to create a high-contrast foundation for the apartment. This keeps the predominately white furniture from fading out of focus, and still gives the bright rugs some pop.

Hey folks, it's Kevin from Thou Swell hopping over to Stripes and Peonies to share some interior inspiration while Gracey is on vacation. This bright apartment belonging to Pelle Lundquist is up for sale and it showcases Pelle's contemporary aesthetic quite nicely. I can appreciate some solid Scandinavian design, but rarely have I loved it as much as I have in this apartment – with bright pops of color and unexpected design elements to break up the monochromatic palette. Don't you just love this floral print ottoman?
