{paris: week four}

This past week in Paris was a bit quieter as the rainy weather kept me from wanting to walk around extensively or take as many photos, but in spite of the rain our time was definitely not lacking in more fabulous dining and shopping experiences.  I discovered two of my new favorite stores; one was Merci in the Marais which is a fun mix of boutique clothing finds and impeccably designed home decor with a decidedly french flair to it.  The other store that came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint is & Other Stories which is sort of like H&M meets Zara- a little lower price point than Zara with more trendy cuts/colors.  

In addition to crossing off some places on our restaurant wishlist, we discovered a delicious and low-key Italian place down the street from our apartment that will surely become an easy weeknight staple over the next couple months.  On the recommendations of many we trekked out to wine & tapas bar, Bones, for a great meal that was a welcome departure from the more traditional french dishes we have become used to including Banh Mi with Pate.   In search of another wine bar-type experience, we checked out this little place in 6th and then biked over to cocktails after dinner at the intimate Curio Parlor.
