Paris Fashion Week arrives tomorrow and has me thinking about the summer I lived in the beautiful city. Though I won’t be hopping the pond for Paris Fashion Week this season, I’m sharing some of the must-see spots in my favorite city.
It’s the last weekend of summer which means I’m slipping into breezy warm-weather styles and wearing this polka dot skirt on repeat. The classic a-line skirt is figure flattering and feminine, and a silhouette I find myself returning to again and again. But since the first hints of autumn have arrived, I’ve started transitioning from summer with new fall staples.
When NYFW rolls around in September, it always feels like the beginning of a new school year. The summer holiday has ended but a week of inspiring fashion shows and street style looks lie ahead. Navigating between the back-to-back shows and appointments can leave little time to plan where to grab a bite or perhaps a cocktail

In a new installment of Girl’s Guide is digital content creator Kristie Dash. A veteran of Allure and Lucky Magazine, she’s a pop culture and beauty expert who knows the importance of working hard and finding a good hair colorist.

One of my favorite memories is picnicking along the Seine when I lived in Paris for a summer. So, when it comes to warm summer nights, there isn’t anything I love more than grabbing a basket, a bottle of champagne, and whipping together a picnic spread to enjoy outdoors with friends. Though nothing may beat sitting below Pont des Arts with fromage and a still-warm baguette from a local boulangerie, I picked up a few French habits and mastered the art of the Parisian-inspired summer picnic over the years.
