(THE REAL) PICNIC

Speaking of picnics and benches on my earlier post today, here are a few pictures from our last trip to Paris. We ate lunch outdoors at the Jardins du Trocadéro to enjoy the peace and quiet, and the view of the Eiffel Tower.

FORM AND FUNCTION: GENE STYLE AW 2013-2014

Some people have shopping or dining on top of their list when they go on trips but in my case, it’s seeing the architecture of the city that I like the most. From the grand landmarks to the little details that may pass unnoticed (I have a folder devoted entirely to basement windows/doors in Riga!), there’s nothing like walking around, grabbing a waffle or doughnut along the way, and just taking pleasure from the “free exhibit” around you. London-based fashion brand GENE Style reminds me of such trips: looking at these clothes is like looking at beautiful structures. Enjoy the stroll!

CHRISTOPHE ROUSSEL: CHOCOLATIER PATISSERIER GOURMAND

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

– This is Just to Say by William Carlos Williams
