Weekend Links: Week 26

Weekend Links Week 26 is here which means we’re almost halfway through the year – kind of hard to believe. This weekend I’m in Normandy which is always a very welcome change from Paris. I wish the trip was longer but even just a couple of nights will be so relaxing. I’ll probably spend most of my time hanging with sweet Dalton. Some of my favorite articles from this week include a list of 20 cult films about the Côte d’Azur, the most beautiful exhibitions to see in France this summer (including one I’ll see this weekend), timeless Eugène Atget photos of Paris in the 19th century, and the history of Van Cleef & Arpels. I hope you enjoy!
