Favorite Summer Spots Paris
This post is in collaboration with Kayu.
With this massive heat wave in Paris, I decided to share with you all some of my favorite summer spots in Paris to escape the summer sun and capture to some Instagrammable content too!
Also be sure to check out their handbag line here. I am completely obsessed and their bags are perfect for those summer days and they have the cutest trendy picnic bags everyone wants to get their hands on. The collection I was lucky enough to get my hands on before was the Resort Collection that will be launching November!
Be Like The Locals – Merci Cafe
The first way to beat the summer heat? Stop by a cafe and just stop to enjoy the moment a bit. The one thing I have really noticed since moving here is that French people really take the time to enjoy themselves, even on their lunch break. This is one cafe that I absolutely love called Merci Cafe which is actually a used bookstore, a concept store and cafe all in one! Spend an hour or even five, sip on an iced coffee while reading a book on their immense bookshelf!
Walk Along The Seine – Paris Plage
Summer time equals lots of time in a bikini at the beach or in this case, along with the Seine. Every summer Paris turns the side of the river into a beach with activities for the locals to enjoy, beach chairs and actual sand! Well, I wouldn’t recommend jumping into the river to cool down, there are many activities to enjoy at Paris Plage! Oh did I mention it`s FREE!
Staying Refreshed – Rose Shaped Ice Cream
Nothing beats the summer heat like enjoying some fresh ice cream! Honestly, it’s the perfect snack and not to mention your Instagram feed will scream summer vacation is here! My favorite one is in Le Marais but they are all over the city!
Grab a slice – Italian Food
Nothing like stopping some local trendy restaurants. It’s so surprising how many amazing authentic Italian restaurants you can find in Paris! Two of my favorites are Ober Mama and Grazie! Whatever you decided; sit, eat and enjoy the summer!
Stay cool and enjoy your summer vacation! Be sure to check out @Kayudesign on Instagram!
