Weekend in Paris

Weekend in Paris

A most spontaneous decision came to me just the other day, while I stared lovingly at my brand new French Sole Henrietta in crocodile print…Which by the way, now come in the exciting new colours of cool coral, elegant taupe and exquisite turquoise. Hot on the heels of my Roman holiday, I decided, why stop now and rather than putting my feet up, I’ve opted to let my hair down and start the new month with a short trip to my beloved Paris. My plan of action, far from being a sojourn joie de vivre, or a petite perusal of the ateliers near where I will be staying in Marais, mine is a purposeful crusade…A quest for macaroons.

My guess is, that you may be wondering why that particular style of shoes makes me think of macarons, no? Well it’s simple, as the many colours that French Sole’s Henrietta in crocodile print come in, remind me of the variety to be found in those addictive little cookies that the Parisians do so well. Also, it’s so very, very difficult to stop at having just one (pair), isn’t it? You simply must have them all!

As Honoré de Balzac once said “Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant.” An update to which I would add “Whoever does not wear French Sole’s Henrietta in crocodile print while nibbling on a macaroon when visiting Paris, will never really be truly elegant.” There, I have coined a new phrase and if you must know, Pistachio is preferred choice.

I’m very curious how other French Sole fans are styling their French Sole Henrietta in crocodile print. Do mention #frenchsoleblogbyamelie on your Instagram and I’ll be reposting the most creative looks on our FS page.
