36 Hours in Paris

I’ve already booked a number of trips this summer. Late August, I’m going to London (fingers crossed) to visit my sister and plan to do a quick side trip to Paris for 36 hours to: see Damien Hirst’s Cherry Blossoms at the Fondation Cartier, check out the new pâtisserie at the Ritz Paris, let my daughter pick out her first Chanel bag (early college graduation present), stock up on Bonpoint long-sleeved T-shirts, and buy a cashmere sweater from Linda Wright‘s shop Crimson. After a year of shuttered stores and restaurants, I will be disappointed if Paris businesses close for the August holiday. Fingers crossed.

  • Sounds like the perfect trip! I think at some point over shut down I decided Linda Wright is my style icon and now I feel the need to make a pilgrimage to Crimson!!! And of course a stop at Merci….

  • How exciting Preston, what memories you’ll make with her! Excited for you. I agree about Linda Wright and her style, can’t wait to see her shop in person. All excellent ideas, you are a great planner of short trips.

  • Staying at the Ritz. Have not been back since the renovation and can swim if it’s hot.

  • Coincidence! I’m planning to do almost the same. I’m still waiting for the lift of the lockdown in London, I mean the quarantine! Other than that I’m ready for London and Paris in the end of August!

  • I can’t imagine a bad time to travel anywhere, especially Paris. And if you’re staying at The Ritz, who cares if other places are closed! : )))
