This understated European city is an epicenter for design and art. Don’t miss the Museum MAS, the Cathedral of Our Lady, and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts.  Dries Van Noten’s  flagship shop is located here along with a host of emerging designer boutiques.  Indulge in the mayonnaise covered French fries and of course Belgian waffles  as you stroll the quaint streets.

We are globetrotting around Europe this week to show off our favorite hot spots! In Paris, the Café Society is alive and well. Stroll on the seine, cool your high heels in the Tuileries Gardens, shop ‘til you drop in the Marais or on the left bank, and you must indulge in French pastries! Subtle tones are inspired by the cool limestone architecture that balance the sensory lifestyle of the city of lights! Carry a SCOUT bag and we promise you’ll be tres chic! Finally don’t forget to personalize a lock and attach it to the “lock bridge”…leave your mark in style!

Winter in Chicago may be long and cold, but summers in the Windy City are wonderful! Stop by Millennium Park or spend the day at the beach. Escape the heat at the Radisson Blu Hotel pool and quench your thirst with lemonade from Birchwood Kitchen. As for the food, have dinner outside at Red Door or Bridge House Tavern. When it comes to style, stay chic in neutrals inspired by the stone and cement found in the Chicago skyline, but don’t forget a bright accent piece to make your outfit stand out!

San Francisco

“The coldest winter I ever saw, was the summer I spent in San Francisco.”

Even with the arrival of summer, San Francisco is notorious for their cooler temperatures. Why not dress in head to toe black to coordinate with the weather? We suggest spending the breezy San Fran days eating outside at the Market Bar or Eastside West. Sip on ginger lemonade from Universal Cafe and sit poolside at the Phoenix Hotel.
