to-go

Nothing declares the commencement of summer like breaking out the onesie.  My friends, summer has arrived in Paris!  After taking an honest look in the mirror, this might be my 1980s polyblend onesie’s last summer, a bittersweet farewell to a lot of memories of warm beer, vicious farmer’s tans and other slightly regrettable adventures of my early 20s. It’s really not too sad; I’m wise enough now to know it really was never very becoming anyway.  Cheers to getting a little bit older and finally investing in natural fibers!

But now that the sun is out to play, I have been packing a lunch and seeing where the day takes me, often including this superfood salad and juice.  Between some rendez-vous, a little picnic for one is one of summer’s perfect pleasures.
