today we’re visiting our friends to the north, a charming little cafe in downtown Montreal, canada — welcome to the very lovely cafe parvis, an eclectic urban oasis decorated with a collection of mismatched vintage dining chairs, a pretty outdoor patio, and a casual, plant-filled atmosphere serving gourmet pizza, beautiful house salads, and creative appertivo to share. like everything, cafe parvis is currently closed but is open for takeout orders only. when they happily open their doors again, we’re going to cozy up to that cute bar for some yummy smoked salmon gravlax and a glass of bubbly in our favorite look — fancy paired down. a sheer blush-colored blouse with a contrasting wrap top, faded denim, great boots and some bohemian beads and baubles. while at the bar, i highly recommend reading one of my new favorite books, Writers & Lovers by Lily King — a book that explores the terrifying yet exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another. our protagonist Casey is still clutching onto something nearly all her old friends have let go of: the determination to live a creative life. When she falls for two very different men at the same time, her world fractures even more. warning: you won’t be able to put it down — i read it in a single day!

  1. Yes to everything: the place, the outfit, and especially the book. Writers & Lovers takes place in Cambridge, Ma in the 1990s, when I was working in the area where the story takes place. Such a comforting read, like coming home. And, have I mentioned? This series is among my favorite of all the blogs I follow. Stay well!
