here are some of my favorite things from our short 2 day trip to paris. it was really fun to go to paris a few months ago with my boyfriend, but a whole new and exciting experience to go with a best friend.

they don’t really wear bright colors that often in paris. but we sure did.

we loved cafe charlot so much that we had breakfast there both days. hey, we like routine. how amazing is that subway tile? such charm.

the bright green and florals outside of all of the white buildings was fantastic. they added so much life and personality to the windows. paris has such a cool factor when it comes to placing items. everything is so imperfectly perfect.

there are great little bars in the alleys of paris. so much off the beaten path goodness with wonderful eclectic decor.

    Beautiful photos!

    Would love to do some travelling :)

    Beautiful! I want to go to Paris so, so, so bad. I really want to check out the spot that has you drink wine from baby bottles because how weird/cool. I think Paris is the only city that can rival NY for coolness factor.

  • 3. Ali  |  March 14th, 2012 at 10:24 am

    This looks fabulous, Bri! You sure know how to travel in style.

  • 4. Sarah  |  March 14th, 2012 at 10:29 am

    I’m longing to go to Paris even more now that I’ve seen all your adventures! So beautiful! Looks like you had a wonderful and inspirational trip!

  • 5. Raven  |  March 14th, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I’ve never been to Paris, but I’ve always seen such beautiful pictures of it. I appreciate the bright, saturated colors you’re wearing – I think it gives the photos a nice amount of pop. Looking forward to reading more!

    This looks so fun! I’m going to Paris for the first time with the boy in a few weeks.

    Do you have any specific neighbourhoods that are really fun for exploring? We’ve only got three days so we want to make sure we get as much out of it as possible!

  • 9. Abby  |  March 14th, 2012 at 11:35 am

    So fun! it looks so inspirational!

  • 16. Sara  |  March 14th, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    Please dish on the eclectic bars.. I’m going to Paris next week!

  • 17. The Teacher  |  March 14th, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    I admire the work and style detail that the owners of the buildings put into the outside of the buildings . . . the color, the flowers, and overall appeal. I cannot wait to visit Paris.

  • 18. Emily Reinhardt  |  March 14th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Paris is SO magical!!!

  • 19. Pink Ronnie  |  March 15th, 2012 at 3:53 am

    So awesome. Can’t wait to see more. Sounds like you two had such a great time.
    I agree – those plants outside the buildings are just beautiful. Makes me miss my balcony from our first two homes!

    I love the photo of the leg coming from the wall. The little photo of the men below it makes it all the more scandalous. Four more months and I’ll see Paris with my own eyes!!!!
