How to be a Parisian​ in the States

I can’t believe I’m back home after my incredible summer abroad in Italy. Where did the time go? My experience abroad has been challenging, eye-opening and culturally diverse, and I’ve been able to check so many items off my bucket list. (Hello, Colosseum!) I’m so sad to leave my summer in Italy behind, and I’m already itching to plan my next big trip, maybe next time Paris?

Exploring the beautiful city of Florence and study abroad has made me want to remember these moments forever. Unfortunately, being home in the states has already made me feel disconnected to the amazing culture and experiences I had abroad. Sure I have my videos and letters, but it’s just not the same. If you’ve studied abroad, you can probably relate to this!

Had too many fun times with these girls! 

While abroad, I was introduced to a Parisian E-commerce platform, Paris.Shopping. A little over a year ago, the company’s co-founders were wandering around Paris wishing there was a way to connect more people with the local culture through fashion and design. Everyone dreams of traveling to Paris and purchasing those little trinkets you can’t find anywhere else in the world, but not many have the luxury to make it a reality. Thankfully, Paris.Shopping aims to promote local boutiques and designers to make these fashion resources more accessible to those living outside of Paris.
