French Fridays Week 15
Sault and welcome to French Fridays week 15 where I am sharing everything French that I’ve loved the past week in style, food, beauty, finds, and favorite places in Paris to know.
Classic and fabulous with a relaxed blazer, sweater, and jeans for the season. A black blazer is always a classic way to dress up an outfit yet still look casual.
There are days when I will just throw on a blazer instead of a coat when I want to stay warm yet don’t want to wear a heavy coat.
The best thing to serve for a little holiday entertaining is a cheese board of course. It doesn’t need to be stressful or overfilled with items. Make it simple and beautiful, add a sprig of rosemary for festivity, and serve it with some Champagne. If there are children then you could put out a platter of fruit and cookies.
Here are some items to include.
- Mixed Olives
- Nut Mix
- 2-3 different types of cheese depending on how many guests you are having. Go for a soft cheese and a hard cheese. I like to buy mine at Trader Joe’s, Aldi’s, or a local cheese market.
Cheese Board | Champagne Coupe | Cheese Knives | Goblet
According to TikTok, this Narciso Rodriguez is a scent that all French women are wearing at the moment.
One of my favorite scents is from Sézane, the perfume, unfortunately, doesn’t ship to the states but you can get some of their soap which smells just as lovely and in a beautiful bottle.
Favorite Places In Paris To Know
Monoprix is the chic version of Target in the states, except it’s better. Usually, I make several trips to Monoprix when I am in Paris for a variety of things.
It’s where I will buy bottles of wine and snacks for my hotel room or for a picnic. You can also buy clothes and HomeGoods as well. I’ve purchased many clothing items for my daughter from here and even bought my husband a coat.
There’s been a few times when I’ve even picked up French souvenirs from here as well. I always buy lots of chocolate from here to bring home. If you’re ever in Paris or France make sure to stop by a Monoprix.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this edition of French Fridays Week 15.
Au Revoir and Bonne Weekend(Good Weekend)
