My Parisian Afternoon

The other day, it was pouring down rain (as it always is) and I and my friend Leah were looking at pictures from the runways of Paris Fashion Week. We started wishing we ourselves were in Paris (as we always are) and thusly decided to have ourselves a Parisian afternoon. We threw on black dresses and listened to “Si Tu Vois Ma Mere“* and went down to the waterfront to dance in the rain.

I wore my fringe-collared Free People dress for the occasion.

Soaking wet from the rain, we headed to the French cafe downtown and ate croissants and tarts and drank espresso.

I always love discovering new things to do where I live. So we weren’t really in Paris, but we were surrounded by rain and fashion and nostalgia, so what’s really the difference?

Oh yeah, the Eiffel Tower and crossword puzzle pants are the difference. Check out The Thread blog to find inspiration for your own Parisian anti-vacation.

Stay golden,
