On Rue Chapon

I wonder if all Paris trips will feel like a blur/dream. Now that I'm back at my desk, I look at these photos and I wonder did that really happen? These were taken after an over-the-top lunch at L'Ambroisie, a place that set a new bar and frame of reference in my mind for what classic French cooking is really about. In one way, it was a learning experience and while I am no expert on the matter, I now feel like I have experienced what may be the best French cooking in the world. But I digress. Forgive me, but this post is much more superficial than a discussion of that meal — it is what we wore to that meal. I bring you a long overdue contribution to my his & hers series.

His: Suit - J.Crew // Shoes - Alden for J. Crew // Shirt - CEGO // Pocket Square - Some Hawaii joint
Hers: Coat - J.Crew // Scarf - Everlane // Pants - Zara // Shirt - J.Crew // Jacket - J.Crew // Shoes - Louboutin // Bag - Givenchy // Sunglasses - Illesteva

  14. Hi Alice! I recently found your blog and ever since I've been visiting every single day (and sometimes twice a day haha). I'm an aspiring (amateur) photographer and your photos are such a big inspiration for me. I've never taken any photography lessons or classes (although I would love to) so I try to soak up all of your tips and suggestions as much as I possibly can!

    Anyways, I just wanted to drop by and tell you that you're one of my favourite photographers out there and that I one day hope that I can be half as good as you are :) Thank you for sharing and all the inspiration!

    All my best,
    Carin (www.parisinfourmonths.com)
