Hogan

I have always been a fan of Hogan sneakers and after I moved from New York City I had a hard time finding them in the United States. I would have to wait for a trip to Italy to pick up a new pair. Now that Farfetch carries them you don’t have to plan a trip to Italy to refresh your inventory. I love the elevated sole which fairs well with the current dad sneaker trend.

à paris

Paris.jpg

Over the holidays I had several friends who were traveling to Paris and needed recommendations. I put together a list for them and thought others might find it helpful. I so appreciate people sharing their travel notes and have had so many wonderful suggestions over the years. Hopefully my notes will help in planning your next jaunt à Paris.

Hotel – we at stayed the Prince de Galles. There are so many choices in Paris but this hotel worked for us because we are all able to be in one room (with a bit of convincing). Check out Mr and Mrs Smith hotels for modern boutique hotel accommodations in Paris.

Museums, Sites, & Activities

  • Louvre Museum
  • Musée d’Orsay -my favorite.
  • Musée de l’Orangerie – great for kids short and sweet all Monet.
  • Pompidou – modern art museum
  • Musée Rodin
  • Eiffel Tower – buy skip the line tickets ahead of time Viator is a good source.
  • Bateaux Mouches – boat ride along the Seine big hit with the kids.
  • Atelier Des Lumieres – have not been but heard it’s incredible.
  • Sunside Sunset for Jazz Music
  • Jardin du Luxembourg – kids loved pushing the vintage toy boats in the water when they were little. They also loved the playground and carousel.
  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Notre Dame
  • Palais Garnier – it was an experience taking the girls to the Paris opera house. The Chagall ceiling alone is worth the trip.
  • Walk around Montmartre Neighborhood – see the Moulin Rouge, Love Wall, and Place du Tertre.
  • Foundation Louis Vuitton
  • Le Foodist – we did a great French baking class here.
  • Treasure Hunt at the Louvre – book through THATlou.
  • Jardin des Tuileries – the infamous green chairs great for a photo opt and strolling the gardens.
  • Walk around the Marais – my favorite neighborhood in Paris.

Food 

  • Le Relais d’Entrecote- love this restaurant! They do not take reservations but it’s worth the wait. They serve one thing Entrecote and french fries.
  • Breizah Cafe – the kids favorite! They accept reservations and we went to the one in the Marais. Delicious crepes.
  • Café de Flore – touristy but still fun.
  • Frenchie Wine Bar – cozy dinner on a quaint street. Hightop tables not great for little kids.
  • Poilâne Bakery – famous for their bread. We had lunch at the cafe next door (Comptoir Poilâne) where they use their delicious bread on tartine sandwiches.
  • Cafe Constant – french country food.
  • Berthillon – salted caramel ice cream.
  • L’As du Fallafel – got to have a falafel while walking around the Marais.
  • Amorino – beautiful flower shaped ice cream.
  • Odette – colorful creams puffs.
  • Ladurée – always fun to browse the beautiful macarons.
  • Boot Cafe – tiny charming cafe in the Marais…nice photo opt.
  • Cocktails at The Ritz.

David Lebovitz is a great resource for restaurants in Paris.

JW Sunday Style Section

Friday night was frigid and to warm me up I bundled up in my Navy Peacoat for a date night out at Felix. We had a great corner table with a view of Evan Funke rolling out his homemade delicious pasta! Dinner was outstanding as usual. Saturday morning I opened the WSJ style section and coincidentally they had a whole article on The Peacoat. This timeless, cold weather coat has been around since the 16th century where it was originally created to keep Dutch sailors warm at sea. It never goes out of style and comes back with slight modifications each and every season. My Sandro Peacoat with faux shearling collar is no longer available but I found some similar alternatives.
