The Banks of the Seine

Here's another shoot from my time in Paris last weekend, this time sporting a more casual ensemble - perfect for hopping out to do some shopping at the outdoor market or to pick up some goodies from the local traiteur.  The nice thing about having visited a place like Paris a few times in my life (in addition to a few family and personal trips, I studied abroad there in college and later was lucky enough to travel to the city a few times a year when I was working with Rizzoli), is that I don't feel the need to bounce around and do all the museums and typical sightseeing excursions that I probably felt inclined to do my first visit. Instead, the days just kind of melted into one another, unfolding with ease as we took our time exploring different neighborhoods, cafes and parks without any real destination... just following where our feet took us. Which is not to say we did no sightseeing whatsoever. Because that would be impossible, really. What I mean is that any kind of urgency just sort of dissolved into the waters of the Seine, along with all my worries and stresses. Really missing it right about now... can you tell?

What's one of your favorite places in the world to visit?

  2. Love your chambray shirt, and this makes me want to visit Paris again! I love Rome and Laguna Beach - both places I've felt at home
