The Paris Diaries: Oh, Pinterest...

Hello Again!
I am back after going to several meetings, signing lots of documents, and pinning more travel tips and outfit posts than I should.

Anyone who knows me is aware of the fact that I am not one to do anything last minute. I like my outings to be planned, and my outfits to be coordinated. So considering the fact that this trip is going to be one of the biggest things to ever happen to me EVER, I have already started planning.

One of the things that I am equally excited and terrified for is the fashion. Paris is known as the fashion capital of the world and I do not want to disappoint the parisian women with sweat pants and flip flops. That being said, I too have days where I want nothing more than to put on my yoga pants and my college sweatshirt and run errands, but I am going to try to avoid that faux pas in Paris as much as I possibly can!

To combat my anxiety surrounding my attire while studying abroad, I have turned to the ever overwhelming, but also fantastic, PINTEREST!

I have been pinning everything from plane ride tips, to classic outfit ideas, to street style, and so much more.

I am not the most organized pinner, and pins that should belong on one board are often pinned to another, but I think this is an amazing way to store all my ideas in one place.

My Boards that I am currently pinning on like a mad-woman are:

Style - if I see a shirt that I love, or a really amazing outfit it will most likely be pinned here.

I love the strappy sandals and flowy dress.

Street Style Inspiration - dedicated to my favorite street style shots. this is where I get the bulk of my inspiration from on a daily basis.

her camel coat with those lightwash jeans and black boots is everything I've ever wanted.

Paris - everything Paris related.

Hopefully I will be able to visit the Louvre several times

Travel - half travel tips, half travel outfits, half things I want to purchase before I leave, you get the idea...

I think I have about 800000 of these lists pinned by now...

Essential Wardrobe - this board serves as a reminder to me that I will not be able to bring my entire closet with me, so I must learn love the philosophy of capsule wardrobes, and basic v neck tee shirts.

"I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color."

I hope you enjoyed my Pinterest boards! I know I have five months left still, but I get more and more excited every day.
