#VeloDate - Paris (@o_reilly_s)

Posted: May 28 2015

If you only had one day in your city to help someone fall in love with you, where would you take them? Who would you introduce them to? What would you want them to experience? 

As part of our global and summer long #VeloDate project we asked Aurélie from Paris to share with us what that one special day would look and feel like for her.

Here is Aurélie's lookbook.

The perfect way to start the day.

Welcome to Le Comptoir Général, one of the coolest place in Paris.

When the sun is out, a stroll along the Canal St Martin is required.

You can never be sick of Paris' architecture.

As a good French I love wine and will be now be able to always carry it with me.

Behind The Camera

I’m born and raised in Paris region but I lived in London, Brussels and Lille (north of France). I love to travel I guess thanks to my parents who gave me the taste to it. However the more the years pass, the more I love Paris and not only for its touristic attractions.

If I say “Paris”, what does it make you think of? The Tour Eiffel, Ladurée macarons, baguette, the City of Light, antique street lights, the Louvre, the Moulin Rouge, the city of love… Paris is the most visited city in the world, however I think it is actually not well known because clichés interfere with reality (I have only mentioned positive clichés of course, without even talking about the negative ones, especially about Parisians).

In any case, Paris is not only an historic city, chic and pretentious, but it is also pieces of countryside, colorful streets, residential areas and not only in chic areas.

What I like the most about Paris is not the touristy city but the authentic, colorful and unusual one, those hidden gems that are far away from the bustle of the city. To reach them you sometimes have to “daringly” push open a private door or to wait until someone opens it. There are so many luscious green and timeless places in Paris, you’d be surprised.
