Get Carried Away




(beautiful photographer outside of Notre Dame)

Paris is everything I always hoped & dreamed it would be. It's the most beautiful place in the world.. It doesn't exactly take away my love for New York, but I can definitely feel at home here.. between the cobblestone back roads and the boulangeries.. I can't imagine my life without Paris in it, anymore.

I have been sticking with simplicity while I've been here. I've been learning a lot about style by "people-watching" (a true European past time, I've noticed). The uniform is black, black, and more black. I tend to like to mix some color and pattern into my wardrobe than most young parisiennes .. But I'm looking forward to having a mélange of New York & Paris in my updated sense of personal style.

Travel is all about learning about your "true self".. allowing yourself to truly get carried away. As cheesy as it sounds, make yourself become the person you've always wanted to be..

PS: I'd be OK if all men dressed like Parisian men.. Just saying.
