French Day

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Hi loves!  How's the week treating you so far?  Mine's busy but fine.  Yesterday totally flew which is great but then it makes you wonder where the time goes.

So today I've decided to have a French day.  Forget my normal crazy NYC pace.  Today I want to take the time to slow down and savour things the way a French girl would.  Anyone care to join me? :)

Have a lovely day, sweets!

xoxo

Oh, those cherry blossoms are gorgeous. The deep contrast against pale pink reminds me of lingerie.

livesimplybyannie said...

Sometimes we really do just need to slow things down a bit. I think we all forget that our normal speed is kind of warp speed. Happy Tuesday!

Leslie said...

Great idea Dawn! ;)

We will be there at the end of June so this is a the perfect warm-up! I'd like that little piece to wear around the my room in Paris ~ while eating macaroons and sipping something delicious.

Enjoy your day!

Sandy a la Mode said...

i could eat macarons every day! :D

Bonnie said...

I'm not sure I am capable of slowing down. I'm a naturally hyper person, but it sure sounds tempting.

I would love to but Im still trying to catch up from vacation! Weird how it takes several days to get back to normal.

Lindsey @ be pretty said...

Totally joining you on this French day... especially, considering I'm still in my jammies on my sofa working from home... Awwwwwww ~ Heaven! Pretty post girl... and sometimes it's nice to stop and smell those roses. Hope your getting the gitters for your beach weekend kickoff! Jeal! Xo

Hi Dawn,

I would be happy to have a French day with you, in fact shortly I am going for a manicure and pedicure.

Enjoy the rest of the week

A French day sounds fabulous but I think I'll change mine up to a beach day. Sun on my face, casually catching up on my favorite magazines, eating fruit, and napping as a cool breeze sweeps across me.

Ali Rodriguez said...

LOVE French days! They are the best!!

Courtney @educatedderelicts said...

Such a beautiful post and wonderful idea! I've just reached your blog through LatteLisa and it is a gem - you should be very proud :)

Danielle said...

Hi Dawn,
What a wonderful thought. I love the idea of French day! Let's all slow things down and enjoy a little. If anyone needs me I'll be taking a nap, and I'll have one (or two) of those macaroons when I wake up...haha!

Your photos today made me smile. Here's hoping you had a French day after all.

Nuha said...

Andrea Reh said...

Mais oui! Which reminds me, I'm supposed to be enrolling in a French class this week!
