model in all J. Crew , Ban.do notebook, Stan Smith sneakers, Topshop sandals, Pixie Market blouse, Rag & Bone sweats, Illesteva shades, Mansur Gavriel backpack, Sophie Hulme keychain

Being my own personal style, I'm loving this season's choice of simple, comfy, and cutting-edge pieces. School, if anywhere, is the best place to express your style- so go ahead and try sporty slides, sweatpants with a cool top, and sneakers- with everything. Experiment not only in science class but with what you wear. Give blacks, whites, and greys a run for their money by adding a touch of color- gold accessories count! 

model in all J. Crew,  Topshop shirtdress, Markus Lupfer slip ons, Karl Lagerfeld hat, Pixie Market striped dress, Mua Mua pouch, Zara sneakers

I love the look of a crisp collared dress, and the varsity trend is super cool. I'm also into graphic lettering and numbering, so that's why I think the Markus Lupfer shoes are complete genius! Sneakers paired with dresses has become quite the classic, yet the baseball hat really finishes the athletic-yet-girly look with a bang. 

model in all J. CrewOne Teaspoon jeans, Clu sweater, Topshop loafers,  Clare Vivier bag,  Zara skirt, Rxmance t-shirt,  Clare Vivier shades, Comme Des Garçon for Dr Martens lace ups

Add some bang to your style if you are girly by throwing in a graphic t-shirt, metallic shoes, or ripped/color block/ side zipper denim! Its fun to see what things you can get away with tied around your waist- be it a chunky sweater, a jean jacket, a winter coat, a flannel, or even a leather jacket. Also, don't shy away from red white and blue- a classic combo that is foolproof. 

Who's excited for another school year? I know I wish that summer would never end.

Eiffel selfie (duh)!

Macarons that aren't as amazing as the little toy I got at Colette!

Awesome Tiffany Cooper window art at Colette.

Topshop blazer, Zara top, J.Crew pants, Golden Goose sneakers, Miu Miu bag.

Bros and I on our way to dinner. 
(Topshop blazer and shorts, Vince shoes and top, Proenza Schouler bag)

Yummy club sandwich at a hotel that I can't remember the name of- it's ok though because Jared Leto was there!

Eiffel view!

Neon at the Pompidou Center (such an amazing spot to see cool modern art)!

Found a cool artist, Martial Raysse, who utilizes neon colors and neon lights. Love the pop art-y iconic feel. 

Another Martial Raysse with a fur cheek! Kinda looks like Twiggy.

A neon of Martial Raysse.

Paris view. 

Photogenic fruit.

I also went on a food tour! Here's from a hidden pastry shop (licks lips). 

A Parisian carfie.

A Martial Raysse that's way better in person- the neon lip design is actually red and doesn't make her look like she has a milk mustache.

Decor at Derriere- HELLO ping pong!

Pompidou Center highlight. 

This July, my dreams came true and I got to visit Paris for the first time. Of course I stopped by all the classics like Versailles, Notre Dam, the Louvre- but I also tried to observe the french daily life as well as I could. The food, the fashion, the architecture, and the personalities were exactly as I had imagined. I tried almost every macaron I laid my eyes on, ate SO much bread, and never missed a dessert. Here are just some photos (I took like 1,300!) that kinda capture how amazing it was!

je t'aime, Paris!
