Ladies Who Paris

Home. I'm sure I'll have a few more nods to Paris still to come but I just love these surreptitious snap shots of two Parisienne women of a certain age dressed up for a day at the Musee D'Orsay.  I wish I had the guts to get their perfect coifs and suit-matching scarves in the shot as well but I settled for the detail of their suits.  I loved the solid colored linen suits made interesting by quirks of design.  The outfits reminded me of what my grandma Lucas would have worn on a similar outing.  They looked like a page in a catalogue or an article teaching you how to pack light and maximize your outfit with accessories.  I swear they could have easily switched jackets to double their options.  Not to point fingers but look at the contrast with the woman to the right.  All I can say is may I put in such an effort as these beauties when I'm 30 years down the line!

A Walk in the Park

The best thing about the Tuileries today was the public water fountain.

Sarah and Ellie cool off.
