Postcards from Paris

paris afternoon
Hello, from France! Checking in real quick to send you a few little postcards from Paris — we’ll call this one the buildings edition. I fell in love with the red flowers on this building above, in the 3rd. It’s located next to a high school…was your high school’s environs so pretty?

Wandering around St. Germain. This reminded me of a small scale, old school flatiron building.

louvre at night
Sunset at The Louvre. Caught a bunch of beautiful dusk shots last night as we walked home from dinner. It was magical!

I lugged my camera and two lenses all the way to France only to realize I’d left the memory card in my computer at home. Classic! But I have to say, it’s pretty amazing what you can do on an iPhone and iPad nowadays.

We’re still here for a few more days. The adventure continues…and I’ll have lots more stories to share once I’m back. Don’t forget you can check in on our Parisian wanderings over on Instagram too!

    I’ve done the same thing on a big trip, the feeling sucks. But I also realize more and more that pics can look pretty damn good with an iPhone. I love these pics and so so wish I was in Paris!!

    My high school was next to a field. So not nearly as chicly pretty, but you know, it had something going for it. Hope you’re enjoying your trip!

    You should try L’avant Comptoir – right next door to Le Comptoir – it is absolutely fantastic.
