Cool thing about this design- I had no idea what I wanted to do so I started painting on my favorite color and this idea just came to me!

Those of you who follow my blog regularly may have noticed that I haven’t posted in about two weeks.  Usually that happens because I get lazy but this time I have a real reason! I went to Germany as part of an exchange program and was so busy that I barely had time to go online at all. I stayed with an amazing host family and had so much fun with my host sister! We went to Tönisvorst right outside of Düsseldorf and I got to take a side trip to Paris for a few days. I wish I could share every detail of my trip but it was all so wonderful that that would just be impossible. So since this is a style blog, I’m going to focus on what I wore and, more importantly, what I bought these past fifteen days.

Early in the first week was Karoline’s graduation, so I wore a few formal outfits:

We went to parties almost every other night. They were more causal and the weather was much cooler than where I live, which felt great.



Then for sightseeing around Köln, Düsseldorf, and our side trip to Paris, the weather warmed up so I stuck with shorter sleeves and shorts/skirts:




I made this headband


Paris, day 1 (and my wonderful host sister)


Paris, day 2


Düsseldorf and my favorite outfit (note the unicorn on my shirt)

And finally, at the farewell party on the last night, I wore my favorite dress that I couldn’t resist packing just in case:



Now of course, no trip to Europe would be complete without shopping. I think we went to about 5 different H&Ms, and while we do have those in the US, they were slightly different in Germany and France. So here’s what I got:


Circle skirt!


I HAD to get these just because of the stars on the lenses.


This caught my eye in Paris and I couldn’t say no…

Besides the shopping and fashion, I had an incredible experience. I drank beer in Germany, ate cheese in France, and made new friends that I intend on keeping for a long time. The trip was short but it definitely changed me and I can’t wait to do it again.


Keep it classy,
