If you happen to follow me on twitter or have had a conversation with me in the past few weeks, you’ll know that I was recently accepted to a study abroad program in Paris for the summer! I am beyond excited; this is my first trip ever to Europe and I’m sure the other side of the pond will treat me well.
Immediately when I think of Paris, I think of the incredible style that French women have. One thing that they all have in common is that they manage to look incredibly put together. These women don’t miss a beat in fashion, and it’s time to start prepping my wardrobe for this trip.

When I think of stereotypical French Fashion, I think of “American in Paris” a la Carrie Bradshaw style. However, when I took the time to flip through French lookbooks, I didn’t see stripes, berets, or neck scarves. Instead, I saw a variety of styles, ranging from the dressed up to the casual. I pulled this look from a Paris Fashion Week S/S 2012 lookbook. It’s casual, yet the use of layering and bold accessories take her look to the next level.
Have any of you ever been to Paris? Please, share any tips or places I should definitely visit!
