Spring in Paris is just as magical as everyone makes it out to be. A few rays of sunshine really change everything. Paris is alive as ever: cherry blossoms blooming everywhere, people actually smile as they pass you on the street, every restaurant terrace is packed with people chatting, taking in the sun. I'm taking every single opportunity to be outside. Always. Lately, I've discovered that my favorite thing to do, along with basically every young Parisian in the springtime, is to picnic. Whether it be along the Seine, at the Buttes Chaumont in Belleville or along the Canal Saint Martin, it's my favorite way to spend my time. I wore this outfit to hangout with some friends and, yes, picnic by the canal. I bought the hat and the shirt at the Kilo shop, which is probably the only place I shop in Paris. Of course, it's a thrift store, but with a twist. The selection is definitely curated so there's a lot less rummaging involved, it's well organized and, best of all, you buy things by the kilo. I definitely recommend checking it out if you're in Paris.
