I originally wrote this post from Normandy in 2020 and noted that my two favorite times of year to walk through the Tuileries Garden are the spring and fall. It’s true, out of the four seasons spring and fall are my favorites for a stroll though the Tuileries. However, I can now say with certainty that spring is the most glorious season to watch unfold day by day.
I fell in love with Paris by walking around around and taking everything in. I think it’s the best way to see the city and discover which part of it speaks to you. There really is something for everyone in Paris. With the imminent arrival of spring, I’ve been thinking about Paris gardens and the return of leisurely walks. There’s something about walking through Palais-Royal and its garden that remains a personal perennial favorite.

And since it is fall and the chances of needing to warm up are higher, I’m including where to eat and drink near the Jardin du Luxembourg.
Today I want to walk through the absolutely massive Gabrielle Chanel: Fashion Manifesto exhibit. The exhibit is set in the recently renovated Palais Galliera, Paris’ permanent fashion museum. While Gabrielle Chanel remains an incredibly controversial person, there is no denying her remarkable talent as a designer.
