Patisserie Coralie, my happy place.
My husband had a special surprise for me two days ago. He found this adorable Parisienne café in Evanston, a suburban city north of downtown Chicago. He knows how much I miss Paris, and its sweet little cafés that aren’t like any other. I love cafés that have character, cafés that aren’t like your average Starbucks. Now don’t get me wrong, anyone who knows me knows how much I love Starbucks coffee, especially on-the-go! But when it comes to actual cafés I’d definitely prefer a nice sit down place that has charm and character, or perhaps a place that reminds me of Europe, to be frank. I miss it. A lot.
Finding Patisserie Coralie was a wonderful surprise from my husband. We all enjoyed macaroons with our coffees while my son sipped on his hot chocolate. We sat there for a while, and I even got to work for a little bit when my son decided to take my husband outside to pick up some monster trucks from a nearby store.
It was the perfect afternoon. There’s nothing I enjoy more than being with loved ones in a café that reminds me very much of home. On a different note: Many of you have asked me about my laptop cover on Instagram. It’s from CaseApp, a company that helps you create your own custom cases, either for your phones and/or laptops. My cover consists of a simplistic marble top cover, and I love it! It’s sleek and chic.
And before I forget…
You may have noticed but What Would V Wear has moved from .net to .com! My website can officially be accessed from www.whatwouldvwear.com instead of .net. It’s a minor change but I’m excited to have .com back!
As always, thanks much for visiting and have a fabulous weekend!
