Paris in Autumn


Last week I once again found myself running to collect a last minute Pret porridge and plug adapter before an early morning Eurostar for a whirlwind couple of days in Paris. Joined by some of my favourite ladies (read: Lizzy, Lindsey, Katherine, Kim and Alice) with Jigsaw and The Hoxton– it felt like a slightly more controlled hen party (minus any naughty straws or cheeky t-shirts, which apparently didn’t make Jigsaw’s AW17 collection). With a case filled with lots of beautiful new season goodness; including chunky cashmere, mannish oversized coats and simple denim tailoring (which will be coming in next weeks post)- I think my Autumn wardrobe finally found its groove- and where better to take it for a spin than the city of love?

Although a more concise guide will be coming up on the blog tomorrow with plenty of new addresses to add for any upcoming visits to the city- I can safely say The Hoxton was a total treat from start to finish. Walking through the inside/outside cobbled reception and past the al-fresco dining patio- it felt like a bit of a quiet haven amongst the midst of horns and scooters outside.





Dropping our cases off into our rooms, we made quick work of scarpering downstairs to see some of the city by foot- and trust me when I say Paris in the Autumn is just as beautiful as you’d imagine. With trees turning fiery shades of orange and a slight bite in the air appearing when you’d least expect (handy when half of your suitcase is wool)- where else would you rather enjoy the season than kerbside in a cafe with bowls of crusty bottomless bread? With stops to Merci and Acne on the agenda (although I can assure you my purse remained zipped tightly shut) we ended the day with a cab back to the hotel and supper at The Hoxton’s very own Rivié- excited for day 2 of our Parisan adventure!

    Living my Parisian dream vicariously through you – I celebrated my birthday there last year and although I’m itching to return, I don’t think I will manage it this year! Jigsaw’s new collection is just perfectly suited to a Parisian Autumn, looking forward to seeing more of it next week 😍

    Posts like these make me miss Paris! It’s such a beautiful place at any time of year, but the autumn gives it a very melancholy air.
    I hope you enjoyed your stay!

    […] of What Olivia Did spends a few days in Paris in her post Paris in Autumn. I’m definitely torn on which season I’d rather see Paris in, Spring or Autumn. […]
