Given the small size of Parisian apartments it’s only natural that the city’s outdoor spaces are impressively grand and well frequented. On weekends I spend as much time perched along Canal-St Martin or at our local park as I possibly can. Just back from the canal sits this fine looking fountain complete with outdoor terrace and al fresco dining. Ticking all those summer boxes in one easy swoop…
I’m wearing: Frame Denim jacket, Tibi dress and Tibi gladiator sandals. Larsson & Jennings watch, Tibi jumpsuit and Tibi slides. Grey Ant sunglasses, Tibi top, Tibi silk shorts, Tibi heels and Celine bag. Shades Panama hat, Tibi blouse, Tibi Culottes and Celine loafers
Tibi has long been one of my favourite go-to brands across the ditch (aka New York). They make the kind of pieces that effortlessly slot into your wardrobe and always make you feel just a little bit cooler than you did before. Oversized silk separates, minimal silhouettes and slick as hell footwear – basically the ultimate everyday wear.
There’s no question that Tibi is made for the city, so I took to the streets of Paris and headed to some of the best spots to hang out come summer. This list is in no way comprehensive and only includes the 10th arrondissement, but if you’re heading to Paris these spots are well worth exploring!
Ten Belles 10 Rue de la Grange aux Belles, 75010
Strong coffee, just like they make back home. Grab a flat white to go and drink it by the canal (my favourite place to hang out when the sun is shining).
Bob’s Juice Bar 15 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010
Less busy than Bob’s Kitchen in Le Marais but with the same fresh menu! Go for their pressed juice and salad of the day for a quick and healthy pick-me-up.
Holy Belly 19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010
Just down the road from Bob’s Juice Holy Belly has become insanely popular since it opened less than two years ago. Come for brunch and excellent coffee – but be prepared to wait.
Liberté 9 Rue des Vinaigriers, 75010
A beautiful (and very Instagram-worthy) patisserie with the best pastries in the 10th.
Grab some cheese, bread and wine and head to the canal for a picnic with friends.

I’ve got a long-standing appreciation for duster coats and oversized trenches paired with denim cut-offs. After all, there’s no reason denim cut-offs should be restricted to summer holidays and festival season. Just button up that shirt and throw on a duster coat and you’re in business.
Mixing up classic suiting in the name of warmer weather and slouchy silhouettes. This Topshop two-piece does have the potential to be super slick – but with short sleeves and wrap around detail it doesn’t need to be taken too seriously. Toughened up with some serious golden hardware for maximum effect…
The gold chained bag is by New Zealand leather label Deadly Ponies – a very slick brand which I’ve loved since way back when. My first ever big handbag purchase was a Deadly Ponies piece when I lived in Wellington, so it feels good to have Mr Chain Mail (all of their bags have fancy titles) slung around my shoulder in Paris!
