Bonjour! This week was crazy busy, from couture fashion week to visiting museums to random Parisian adventures. I was fortunate to get to help backstage with two haute couture fashion shows and also help usher for a private couture exhibition. Here’s my week in pictures:
Nighttime view from our apartment.
The Paris American Academy where I’m studying.
Pretty flowers in the garden at the Paris American Academy
Starbucks in Paris? I was adventurous and tried a Caramel Coffee Jelly frappuccino! It actually tasted just fine!
I touched it!
At the Louvre, at the original castle foundation the Louvre was built on top of.
Heck yes we took a selfie with the Mona Lisa!
Found this adorable garden and fountain near our apartment!
#OOTD feat. The Eiffel Tower wearing an Asos jumpsuit and new Eden heels (purchased in Paris)!

Breakfast in America restaurant. They even have an Obama milkshake!
Milkshakes, burgers, fries, and even a fried egg. Can you get more American?
Backstage at the Alexandre Vauthier couture show. The look I dressed on Antonina Petkovic! I was obsessed with this fur coat; it was so soft!
