Naturally, the summer continues its music kick this month with some not-to-miss solo concerts, as well as a few festivals. This weekend, Macki Music Festival runs from the 4th – 6th and features acts like Blue Hawaii, Rejjie Snow, and Funkineven. Festival Soirs d’été picks up where Macki leaves off and runs from July 7 – 11, with shows like Klaxons and Kodaline.

One of our favorite Paris blogs, My Little Paris, has opened its first boutique! With impeccable and oh-so-Parisian style, their wares are worth a gander.

Care to be transported to Berlin without leaving Paris? Head to the new KIEZ Beer Garden, located on Rue Vauvenargues in the 18th.  Naturally, there’s a wonderful beer selection, but don’t forget to indulge in some of their nibbles as well: pretzels, spätzle, and the like. An added bonus? They’re screening all of the World Cup matches as well.

This past week the Palais Galliera at the Musee de la Mode de la Ville de Paris opened its exhibition Les Annees 50. A sort of golden age of high fashion, the chic decade is honored with a display of garments by the likes of Christian Dior, Chanel, Pierre Balmain, Schiaparelli, and more.  The show runs until November 2nd and is open every day except Monday.

Once again the banks of the Seine become a veritable beachscape from July 19 – August 17. Paris Plages returns this year to give Parisians a faux break from the city life: sandy beaches, ice cream, volleyball and all.

Les Berges sur Seine is an idyllic Left Bank stretch of pedestrian perfection, and one of our favorite spots along the way has to be Rosa Bonheur. This pop-up location of the Buttes-Chaumont favorite is the perfect warm-weather hang out. Also not to miss? Mozza & Co and Faust, the much anticipated bar/restaurant/performance space situated beneath the Pont Alexandre III.
