I've always had a thing for Paris—haven't we all? For me, I'll admit it all started with Passport to Paris, the 1999 direct-to-video movie starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. My full-on obsession grew after watching films like The Red Balloon and my ultimate favorite, Everyone Says I Love You. So when I was 20-years-old, I ditched my DVD player and moved to The City of Light for six months. I rode around on Vespas, sat in coffee shops, and drank wine with lunch. Life was that good.

To pay homage to the true love of my life, I've collected images from MC's Instagram feed to showcase the most inspiring, lovely, and Parisian snaps from the place I once called home. Et voila!
