Travel Tidbits: An American, trying to look cute, while eating her way through Paris

From the bread, to the wine, to the people (who are all impossibly attractive) to the elegance of the architecture - - Paris is one of my favorite cities to visit.  I recently had the chance to spend a few days in the "City of Light" and thought I would share some of the highlights...

First up, across the river at Pont Neuf for a quick stop at two of E and I's favorite french boutiques - The Kooples & Sandro...

Next up - food and lots of it! Paris is famous for it's macaroons, particularly those from Ladure√©. My favorite macaroons are from a patisserie called Pierre Herm√©, which E introduced me to the last time we were in Paris.   They have several throughout the city (unfortunately for your diet) and while their standard flavors (vanilla, pistachio, lemon, etc.) are delicious, the real treats are the more unique pairings.  Be sure to try the Licorice & Violet, as well as the Jasmine, Vanilla and Olive me, it's amazing.

What did I wear for all of this Parisian eating?  My new favorite (and waist band free) travel dress!  It's short enough to wear flats without looking dumpy, but long enough that "I see London, I see France, I see Polly's..."(you know the rest) is still just a song.  Additionally, it doesn't wrinkle, the navy hue is practically spill-proof and it does wonders when it comes to hiding any vacation "memories" (commonly referred to as pounds).

Here are a few shots from outside the Louvre in the Tuileries Gardens.
