Paris Under Snow
Talk about one extreme to the other!
Days ago I was basking in 30+ degrees in Sydney, loving the colour, surf and getting around in thongs and voila, a plane ride and 24 hours, to wake up to Paris under snow.
And if there is one way I love Paris that is buried in a layer of white. Extra gorgeous and glamorous..How very kind to park the red Citroen in front of a picture perfect cafe.
I donned hubbys mountain gear and left the house clumping around in the snow. This is where I normally go to get a summer ice-cream now the whole street looks like ice-cream….
If there was ever a day to empty the Boulangerie todays the day. Burning carbs just breathing!
A little stroll to the river via Hotel De Ville in the background.
Along past the bouquinists on the river still clumping..
Summer picnics along the river seem faraway but this scene was so beautiful we can wait for summer.
Don’t leave the house without your Ikea shopping bag, never know what you might pick up in Paris!
Notre dame and a snowball fight in the background
The Latin Quarter was silent and magic, maybe we can have 10 inches of snow more often?
An ever so chic Parisian snowman in the 5th..
Shakespeare and co closed for business – snowed out!
So if you are thinking of coming to Paris in the next week hold bringing the Chanel jacket, here’s a list of things you should bring:
Chains for your car
Gloves, hat, earmuffs, scarves
Trekking shoes with rubber soles (so chic not sure Christian Louboutin does them)
A camera or Iphone cause Paris is so pretty
A carrot and two pieces of coal to make your very own Parisian snowman
See you in Paris!
