What to wear on a weekend trip to Paris

A two-day trip to Paris during the summer is the perfect excuse to look very fashionable, eat good food, shop and walk through the city to take in its beauty. Since it’s a short trip, when it comes to packing, opt for packing light: pick only three dresses and a pair of heels which can be worn with all the items of clothing.

Patriotic Colors

Every year, Macy’s throws a spectacular exhibition of fireworks in New York to celebrate Independence Day.
