Brunch? Mais, oui!

Weekend brunches in Paris might just be
one of the best perks of this enchanting city...

I know it sound sacrilegious to say
about the city that offers gems like
the Eiffel Tower, St. Germain, the Musee D'Orsay...
but I have to say...
it's pretty fabulous.

The entire city seems to crawl out of bed
after indulging in a full morning of sleep,
throw on something casually fabulous,
and serendipitously encounter their friends
at the sidewalk tables of a fabulous bistro
where they spend the rest of the day
chatting and drinking champagne.

I'm sure there is more to it than that,
but this is just an outsider's observation.

While I don't really know how this fabulous culture started,
I can tell you...
if you want to get in on the fun,
you'll need to dress the part.

Here's the basic anatomy of your wardrobe for Parisian brunching.

    Have you read the book "Parisian Chic" By, Ines de la Fressange? It has great style tips like the one you posted. It's a fun book to have and you would especially love it living in Paris because it tells you stores to shop at as well.
