I’ve had almost a week to get settled in and I’m finally starting to get used to everything in Paris. The metro is simple and I’m starting to get used to my host family’s different schedules and habits. Today we ventured a little bit outside of the Paris city center to visit le Château de Fontainebleau. Napoleon himself lived at this castle, along with many kings. It was the most beautiful building that I’ve ever seen, but more about that later, let’s talk about what I wore first.
I think my favorite part about living the Parisian lifestyle is that I can dress as well as I want and never look out of place. Today I decided on gray skinny jeans and a giant wool sweater with a cowl neck. This sweater, combined with an over-sized coat and felt hat, kept me nice and warm while walking throughout this unheated castle. Thanks to a new pair of flats basically ripping my feet open yesterday, I bought new gray ankle boots that were the perfect fit to put everything together.
