Packing for Paris (/Things I’ve Bought Recently)

Bonjour, mademoiselles! At the moment, I’m somewhere over the Atlantic on my way to Paris for a few days… (Yay!)

It’s my second trip to the City of Light — but my first in the spring, when it’s rainy and a bit on the chilly side. This time-around, packing was a breeze… Kind of.

Here’s what’s in my suitcase (lots of which you can find on sale):

Packing for this trip was hard, because what does one wear in Paris in the spring? It’s raining, kinda chilly but — I mean, it’s Paris. A girl’s gotta look cute.

Here was my thought process:

For any trip, I begin by doing a quick audit of what I have to take with me. This usually entails whatever I wear most often at home — black jeans, white layering tanks and my favorite long sleeve tee for starters. Then, I can pepper in items I “need” based on weather, agenda and so on.

(PARIS! What more of a reason to you need to shop for a few cute pieces?)

Joe Fresh has awesome, affordable basics — like this fitted striped tee and white layering tank.

Both on the plane and once we are able to roam the city, I plan to spend most of the trip in my favorite rag & bone long sleeve tee — paired with those black jeans or J.Crew’s pixie pant. It’s all about stretchy fabrics, guys. Croissants for days. DAYS!

Bag-wise, I brought my cute fringe backpack (which is 25% off with code BIGEVENT16) because it holds my camera, an umbrella and so on. A big black carry-all is essential too.

Beyond that, I plan to mix and match all of the pieces shown above.

Have you been to Paris in the spring? What did you pack?
