Isabel Marant Dicker boots are the most comfortable shoes so far and I wouldn't stop here probably! ;)
You can't resist them!

Easter Decor

I am finally pulling out a few Easter decorations. Slim pickin's this year. Since these decorations are only out for 1 week, I decided to go with the "less is more" approach.

The Happy Easter printable can be found here

 My mother-in-law gave me these little ceramic bunnies a few years ago. They're so sweet.  
 They look so solemn though, don't they? Maybe they're sad that they only get to stay out of the attic for only a week..poor things:o)

We have Spring Break next week, and I am looking forward to sleeping in and spending some good quality time with my kiddos. 
Have a great rest of the weekend!

Paris instagram guide: Where to shop? ...

                                                                                             CLICK TO SEE MORE

Shall we start our shopping tour? ;)
Just around the corner from our hotel, gorgeous Westin Vendome Paris (I will tell you more about it soon) we found cute Pierre Herme store. Probably the best macarons ever, so we decided to have our snack time here, get some energy and continue to our next goal. 
  4 rue Cambon 75001 Paris






After a short taxi ride (oops, it was cold), we arrived at well known Galeries Lafayette. Magnificent place will leave you speechless but trust me, a lots of tourists will quickly make you to change your mind. Despite that fact, we gave our best to enjoy in great brands, clothes, bags, jewelry,shoes and of course super cute books. You should not miss the view from the roof terrace and snap couple of photos! ;)
40, boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris
 p.s. you will find separated buildings for Femme, Homme and Maison!



  
A few steps away, you will find Printemps, a department store which is more modern and sophisticated with better picks for every brand. Under that gorgeous cupola at the top floor, the Brasserie Printemps is hiding a perfect place for a short break before you continue torturing yourself with all that beautiful clothes! ;) At the lowest level, you can find also a cute place Cojean, where you can refresh yourself with their healthy food and snacks! 
64, bd Haussmann, 75009 Paris - France




When you are in Paris, you gotta visit that famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées, act a little bit crazy and sit at Laduree for brunch! Buy something which is photogenic instead of being yummy and continue the tour! ;) Despite I really liked this beautiful Avenue, it was more than crowded with tons of tourists at one place, so I can't recommend it  for a peaceful shopping. Anyway, it is worth seeing!

AVENUE des CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES, 75008 Paris





Next stop on our tour is also well known - The Boulevard Saint-Germain. Gorgeous street with even better architecture, and beloved French doors. With big names in fashion you can stay and shop forever. Quick break is destined to be at Café de Flore. One street nearer to the Seine and you will find yourself at my personal favorites: Rue Jacob and Rue de Seine with great small shops, bookstores, open markets and many more. Don't miss it!

Boulevard Saint Germain , 75006 Paris



And if you are huge fan of flowers and cute markets, I have also a perfect place for you.

Rue de Bretagne, 75003 Paris
p.s. don't worry, quick break is only a few steps away at Cafe Charlot! ;)

Finally, it is time to end up this tour in the neighborhood of our hotel, so here are the addresses: 

1 Place Vendôme, 75001 Paris
Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris
Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris
and we are done! 

p.s. in the next post, you will see what was in those plastic bags! ;)
