Earlier this year Rebecca of Everyday Parisian asked me to partner on a post about How to Frenchify Your Summer. The post was so well received by everyone I’m sharing how to Frenchify your Fall as we enter a new season.
How to Frenchify Your Fall
As the founder of Paris, Perfected I’m a Francophile at heart. I love uniting with other fellow Francophiles to bring a bit of French culture to your everyday life. I hope the following will inspire you in your every day life.
Meghan’s Picks to Frenchify Your Fall
Master the art of an apple galette.
A galette is a rustic tart filled with fruit and apple is one of my very favorite renditions of it. Make an apple galette to change up your seasonal baking and of course don’t forget to top it with a boule de glace (ice cream).
Treat yourself to a versatile sweater from Sezane.
The Gaspard sweater by Sezane is one of my very favorites as it can be worn both backwards and forwards. I own it in both black and the new camel color that’s perfect for Fall. I size down to a Size Small.

Learn how to make classic French sauces.
Rebecca’s and my favorite cooking school in Paris, La Cuisine Paris, recently started offering some of their classes virtually and the Classic French Sauces course sounds perfect for Fall. Master the sauces now and then use them for comforting meals all Fall & Winter long.
Get a new pair of French kicks.
Sneaker brand Veja hails from France and I just picked up this new pair of sneakers perfect for Fall and for pairing with all my ivory knits. Join the brigade of French girls sporting these sneakers this season.

Read The New Parisienne.
Give yourself a dose of French female empowerment reading The New Parisienne by Lindsey Tramuta. I bought it over the summer and have been really enjoying the profiles included in the book!
Get a skincare consultation from Caudalie.
One of my favorite French brands, Caudalie, has been offering virtual skincare consultations for free this year! I did one over the summer and learned so much. Now is the perfect time to reassess your skincare regimen as the seasons change and as the air gets drier. There’s no commitment to purchase required but you will score a discount on any products you’re keen to buy!

Buy a bottle of Calvados to sip on cool evenings.
Calvados is a variety of brandy made from apples grown and made in Normandy in northern France. It’s the perfect taste of Fall.
Indulge in a new Fall-inspired fragrance.
I love the perfumes by French brand Bastide and their Figue Amour Eau de Toilette will transport you to that delicious time of year as summer turns to Fall.
Transport yourself to the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris.
This video shows off Fall’s colors in one of my favorite parks in Paris.
Make French hot chocolate.
If you know, you know. The French do hot chocolate right. Super thick and creamy and oh-so-indulgent. Here’s a recipe you can use to make it at home.
Buy a candle to transport you to France in the Fall.
Homesick’s France candle will give you Fall in France feels thanks to its hints of warm café au lait and croissants with a touch of tobacco and lavender.
Enjoy a Fall inspired French dinner.
Pork and apples is such a delicious combo and this apple glazed Pork Tenderloin dish sounds perfectly comforting for the Fall season. Try it with a side of Gratin Dauphinois, too!
Listen to a Parisian inspired playlist.
Transport yourself to Paris with my Spotify playlist Paris is Always a Good Idea. I particularly love listening to it while baking or cooking.
