My First Time in Europe: Traveling Solo to Paris

My First Time in Europe: Traveling Solo to Paris

Traveling Solo to Paris, France

          “You’re traveling solo to Paris? You’re crazy” is a response I got from one of my friends who I was chatting with during our catch-up brunches in Los Angeles. As I sipped on my hot black coffee, I told her it was something I had to do. To simply go. Why? There’s something about traveling alone that fulfills me in all aspects. When I travel alone, I feel like my soul brightens from all of the excitement. Going to a foreign country is entering another world. The sounds, smell, air, sky, lighting, are all so different to me. That’s why traveling solo to Paris for the first time was so important to me.

Preparing for My Trip

I do admit, at first I was a bit nervous traveling solo to Paris so naturally, I prepared myself as best as I could. I watched countless YouTube videos of “10 Things To Do in Paris” or “What Not to Do While Traveling Solo to Paris”, etc… Then I learned simple French phrases for two reasons. The first reason to learn some French was obviously for survival in case of a dreadful situation. Then the other reason would be for respecting the French and their culture. I believe that whatever country you visit, you should always learn a few phrases to show respect for those in the country.

Traces of History…

        Paris was like a dream of the old world. The streets and sidewalks were made of small bricks (which was difficult to walk in heels) and the architecture was fascinating because it felt like the buildings were proudly standing in representation of France’s rich history; it seemed like France had left traces of its past throughout every corner and narrow alleyway. I couldn’t help but wonder what it was like 100+ years ago while passing small shops and countless cafes…

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is already next week! Time flies too fast when you’re juggling work, family, and friends (I know I’m not the only one!). Although autumn started months ago, California is becoming chilly as of recently so I can finally enjoy this chilly season. I rarely wear over the knee boots, but this pair is my current favorite.

          I used to hesitate with wearing over the knee boots. Crazy, right? For some reason, I didn’t feel confident in them. I was always particular on over the knee boots since it can be easy to have the “Pretty Woman” hooker look…

          As of lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of black… specifically all black outfits. Then I had an “ah-hah” moment and this outfit came together in less than two minutes. This all black outfit consists of a denim jacket by @trenddirector, basic turtleneck, denim skirt by Shein, and black over the knee boots by @fashion_youup/ Chinese Laundry). Lastly, I decided on finalizing the look with ZeroUV frames and mid-waist belt by B-Low The Belt. I love the turtleneck under the denim jacket since it reminds me of a masculine 60s fashion vibe. In this outfit, the over the knee boots made this outfit sexier because of the peak of skin on the thighs. It’s just a little, but just enough.

Quick update on my life:

          I was a panelist at StyleCon and spoke alongside with 3 other beautiful successful women on the main stage. They were so empowered and inspiring that I felt a little intimidated by them. Although I was sweating from my nervousness, I was able to pull through and send out my message to the audience which made me happy. That day, I got to meet many fans and other fashion/beauty creators. Meeting people within the same community can really inspire you to do more. It’s just a beautiful thing to be able to meet others who have similar passions as you. StyleCon this year was very rewarding and gave me more motivation to create. Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions or comments! <3
