Happy Friday! I recorded a quick video last night since a few of you were asking about my Oui Please subscription! To learn more about Oui Please, or order your own subscription check out their website: www.ouiplease.com! And this isn’t a sponsored post — I just love this service and I know that some of you were curious about what was in it. Have a great weekend!!
I saw this dress and just knew it was the perfect dress to wear on my birthday in Paris. It was a really great day, how could you not love spending your birthday in Paris?! We took our market cooking class, strolled through a flower market, shopped in the Marais, and had a lovely, yet rainy walk home to our apartment.
This trip to Paris I tried to visit a few different museums, including the Petit Palais. I snapped a few pics of my favorite pieces of art, including this painting, The Parisienne, by Charles-Alexandre Giron. Doesn’t she just exude chicness?
I just loved this sculpture. Its a little different since she is laying down when most sculptures are taller with the subjects standing up. But I really thought she was very relatable. Who doesn’t feel like throwing themselves down like this some days?
I don’t remember who this lovely lady is, but because we were in Paris and she was carrying a a huge sack full of baguettes, I declared her the Goddess of Bread.
I feel like this lady is the French cousin of Venus de Milo, who is currently residing across town in the Louvre Museum. The only thing I am curious about is why she is stepping on the face mask!
This little guy — a little frog/bunny gremlin — was one of my favorites even though he kind of creeps me out. I definitely wouldn’t want to see this guy in my backyard!

Day 2 in Paris was bright and sunny — perfect for a stroll in the Tuileries Garden! We had been making our way from our Air BnB apartment in St. Germain to the Petit Palais — a public museum on the other side of the river not far from the Place de la Concorde. I was super excited to wear some of the cute jewelry I picked up in Strasbourg — a cameo ring and an octopus necklace — which seemed to fit into my netural/olive green color palette quite well.
Check out my Instagram page for some more real time snaps from my 2nd day in Paris! Like this sculpture that I saw at the Petit Palais. I don’t remember her story, but I later decided that she was the Parisian Goddess of Bread!
Paris has so many museums and on this trip I had on my agenda plans to stop into a few of the smaller ones I had not yet visited. First on my list was Musée Rodin! A small museum with an adjoining café and outdoor garden full of sculptures, it was definitely worth the trip.
You might have guessed, but it was this pink bag that I picked up at the Longchamp store in Strasbourg! I just loved the color and decided to switch things up by getting the shorter handles. After touring the gardens we all ran for cover inside the museum when a thunderstorm rolled through Paris.
