Can you imagine sitting at a parisian cafe with a plate of macaroons and a latte in your hand? I can and my mouth is salivating already.
I have had some pretty amusing experiences in Paris and Nice. Like the time I nearly got ran over by a cute French boy on his moped. I didn't particularly mind at the time because I was a 15 year old girl and he was oh so cute, but his girlfriend did seem to mind as I made googoo eyes at her man. I've also explored the wonderful city, eaten the best food ever, and tripped on the cobblestone ground by the Champs Elysees. Despite all the amazing sights, my favorite thing to do in Paris will always be to sit at a French cafe while reading a book and enjoying a cup of coffee and a croissant.
I have met so many interesting French people like my good friends Asher and Charlie. Asher who by the way likes to talk really really fast. Asher (who's real name is Andrew but thought Asher was a sexier name) I met in Los Angeles when I was still in High School, but who later moved back to France and who enjoys calling me at ungodly hours of the night! And Charlie who knows how to make Napoleons and who's obsessed with high-top sneakers! I actually met Charlie in Greece and she is the sweetest girl I've ever met! I adore her to death and hope to one day get to travel with her in France because I know it would be a great adventure.
When I went to Paris for the first time, I was too young to really appreciate it. And now that I'm old enough to appreciate it, I don't have the time to go. So that's why this week I'm going to live like I'm in Paris. I will wake up in the morning and go to the french bakery for a baguette. I will take the time in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite of something delicious. Most importantly, I will dress the part.
Oh la la, je n'ai rien à porter! I've got nothing to wear? Never a problem at PINK. This week I've gotten inspired by the beautiful women of Paris. French women have style and no matter where they go, they believe there is always occasion to look your best.
Check out this cute pink lacey dress. It just screams "I love Paris in the Spring." Pair this dress with high healed Mary Janes and pearls and you can't go wrong.
Also check out these other accessories that remind me of Paris. A good friend of the family, Elizabeth Tardie, once told me that every woman needs a pair of red gloves and a clutch to match. Elizabeth was known to traipse around Nice in her red gloves with her clutch strapped across her body or held under her arm.
And don't forget to throw on a French beret to give you that French je ne sais quoi. You can have the French Flair with any outfit with this beret.
Here's a quick list of my all time favorite French movies in no particular order. Some are in French and others are... still amazing!

So I leave you with my fond memories of my travels to France and the beautiful French people I have met. Today I am going to enjoy one of my favorite French movies, Chocolat and I'm going to savour maccaroons.
