#FlashbackFriday to France: Day 1

And LANDING!!! 
So finally I'm getting around to posting some of my photos and outfits from France, and there are videos coming for you all to enjoy!! I wanted to kick off my French Odyssey with my first full day outfit. I didn't want to disgrace the blog with my awful travel outfit, because at the end it just wasn't pretty!! But just in case you're wondering, I wore a Love is Apparel tank, Topshop leggingsAxxiom Slides (I know, I broke my own never-will-I-ever-rule!), and a school jacket. I also had a Nasty Gal sweater, but it stayed in my bag for the most part. There's pictures, and maybe if I'm brave I'll share them as a #tbt....maybe ;) 
But anyways, the day we arrived in Roanne, the town where we had our homestay, and the day after, we went to school. I've been out for a month so the idea of going to school again wasn't my favourite, but I didn't really mind once I was in the classroom. And these 6 years of French have paid off, and I got the gist of what most of the teachers were saying. In the pictures of day to day, there are going to be tons of pictures of me and my friends, since it'd be rude to cut them out. But anyways, on the first day I wore a Tildon drop hem dress (now sold out),  Franco Sarto mules (I knowww another rule broken), and an H&M cardigan (sold out).

After a day at school, we all headed to a cheese aging facility, Mons, that was a bit out of Roanne, but it was so cool to see! We had to wear this atrocious uniform over our clothes and covers over our shoes, but we got to see cheese in the middle of its aging process. It smelled and looked pretty nasty, so I was put off cheese for a few days, but it was super cool to see!! At the end we took a host of photos and I looked through the ones I took and these are some of my favourites!

After we left the cheese aging facility, we walked around a small town that was right near the facility. We saw some of the sights and visited a small church that survived the blasts of both WWI and WWII. The stained glass inside was breathtaking and unbelievably detailed.
