Back in Paris & Back to Business | 7 Things to Get Excited about in Paris this Fall

Hello hello!

Summer was amazing! I loved all of the traveling (more on that in future posts), but I am so happy to be back in Paris! It’s September 24, which means we are officially into a new season. I love fall – the fashion, the changing of leaves, the pumpkin spices lattes, Halloween, I love it all! I’m especially excited for the events that fall brings to Paris. Here are a few links for some fun things to expect and check out in the next few weeks!

1. Paris Fashion Week is here! Today is the first day of the week-long event. Click here for this season’s schedule.
