Parisians really do have amazing style. My mom and I spotted a few widespread trends when we were there last week:
* neutral, solid colors
* ballet flats (they were everywhere!)
* dudes on rollerblades

I was trying to stave off temptation but couldn’t help splurging on a fall jacket from Maje, my favorite brand who is hard to find in the U.S.

The lingerie store Princesse Tam Tam is also fun. I’m not sure how high quality their stuff is — If I were a big snob, I might say the lace should be softer — but they have flirty lingerie that still feels romantic, if you want to bring home a treat.
