i admit that i’m unabashedly a full on francophile. i love all things that are french and i guess the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree, because my father has always greatly admired the culture of france as well. i remember him always urging me to wear a beret while he would utter words in french to the family, {i think he was just kidding around}. needless to say i was so embarrassed and could never understand the fixation. well, to this day i still don’t own a beret, but i do very much enjoy the french culture. and so i bring you the francofiles: a collection of photos and memorabilia related to france. please be on the lookout for more of these posts to come. i hope you like!

    Salut mon amie! Moi aussi j’adore Paris et toutes choses francaise. Vive La France – bisous!! Hi Kristina – I love France & studied French at uni, living & working in France for a year too. I know Paris well having been many times. And of course the fashion & food.
    Will miss our little chats whilst I’m away xoxo

    I could say that I love the way you’ve edited these photos, but that would be sneakily skirting the issue, which is: you’ve officially made me ache to go to Paris. I’ve never been, yet I have always said “I’ll make it there next year.” I’m barely resisting the urge to wake my husband up right now and inform him that we are taking our belated honeymoon in Paris; something about the progression from the photo of those coffees to the pic of the green and red architectural details just flipped a francophile switch inside me. Perhaps if I force him to wear a beret and speak in an accent, my husband will eventually cave in hopes of getting me to stop. ;) Have a lovely Tuesday dreaming of Paris! -Jennifer

  • cool pictures of paris.

  • I long for a French adventure. not just for the sightseeing, but for the food (of course)! That first photo is too cute. Reminds me of a sweet postcard.

    It wasn’t until I moved to the US that I started loving Paris. In Europe Paris is just any city, but over here people are obsessed with France and Paris! And this has definitely inspired me too :) My husband is from Basque Country (home of the berets!!) and we go there all the time, but this christmas we decided to spend New Years Eve in Paris! We just got our tickets so I couldn’t be more excited!!!

    I love your little collection of photos! So pretty!

    Your blog is a winner! Anyone seeing these lovely pictures will be convinced to go to France. What was your grandfather’s line of profession? He must be a brilliant man to be able to go to Sorbonne…I heard it’s difficult to get accepted. Anyway, thanks for sharing these splendid photos, Kristina!
