On the heels of Fashion Month I’ve returned back to LA from Paris. I must say that even though I didn’t spend enough time in Europe, this was my best trip yet! This past month I took a trip to Italy and France with my mother.
We started out in Paris for a day then off to Italy touring four cities in three days! I don’t advise anyone to try and do that! By the time we reached Florence we were thinking about extending our stay in Italy because we weren’t ready to be constantly on the go everyday. Despite our ups and downs we made it back to Paris safe and sound. Our first stop MILAN!

The first mall – Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
From Milan we went to Venice. All my mother wanted to do was a gondola ride through the grand canal and eat pizza. Venice is a beautiful city! I would love to have had more time there to explore. Between boat taxis and the gondola ride we got to see a lot of the city.
After spending half a day in Venice it was time for us to hop on a train and head to our next destination: Florence. We had at least one agenda for each city and if time permitted for other things we ventured out. Being so limited on time we had to make a check list of must sees. For Florence it was the Gucci Museum.
The next morning we went to Rome to spend the day exploring the city before heading back to Paris! I loved how beautiful this city is, seeing ancient ruins throughout the city made it more beautiful than I could imagine. We started off our morning with classic Roman breakfast pastries (the most divine “breakfast” I’ve ever had) and of course we couldn’t leave without having gelato and pizza!

After Italy and all the walking, it was time to head back to Paris! My first full day in was AMAZING. I truly fell in love with Paris that day. My friend Combo picked me up in the morning and had planned the best sight seeing tour! I think we walk half of the city maybe more! We walked so much it made me regret wearing leather pants and booties hahah.

My first full day in Paris was well spent thanks to this guy! I think the best thing about Paris was getting to see it through his eyes and his point of view from growing up here in the city. I saw and learned so much about Paris in one day!
I’m not going to go into details about everyday spent in Paris but here are the highlights from the rest of my trip!
