Packing for Paris

Packing for Paris

Soon we’ll be headed off on a return trip to Paris. We have rented a truly gorgeous apartment (complete with a tiny Parisian balcony!) in the Marais (4th arrondissement). I am counting down the days until I am exploring the city of lights again, hopping on the train for a couple of daytrips outside of Paris, and living and breathing my favorite culture. By happenstance, we are yet again visiting in September which I have found to be ideal. Summer travelers are fewer, all of Paris has returned from les vacances of August, and the weather is unbelievably gorgeous with sunny, pleasant days and cool evenings portending fall. In case you would like to see, here is what I packed on our last visit in September. I am currently loving the idea of a fall palette of neutrals accented with warm cognac and eggplant, so that was my inspiration for packing. I put together a lot of options for outfits below with this relatively minimal amount of clothes, but am glad to know I have countless more options to mix and match within this palette.

What I'll Pack

Tops: Black cami and white cami (one size stretchy, super versatile and perfect for anything with a high waist), black high-neck crop top, cognac silk tank (similar here), black high-neck tank (similar here), black cashmere crew sweater, bronze silk blazer (similar here), off-the-shoulder long-sleeve top (similar here), eggplant silk blouse (similar here), cognac silk blouse (similar here), polka dot lilac silk blouse (similar here), black lace blouse (similar here), black and white stripe long-sleeve tee (similar here), black tee

Bottoms: Black jeans, super high-waist destroyed jeans, medium-wash high-waist jeans, black midi skirt (similar here), cognac silk midi skirt (similar here)

Dresses: Gray stripe linen dress, navy silk mini dress (similar here)

Shoes: Cognac leather slides (similar here), black strappy sandal heels, tan suede lace-up low-heeled sandals (similar here), white espadrille sneakers, tank and black slingback pumps

Extras: Camel coat, black leather moto jacket (similar here), carry-on tote bag, woven basket purse (similar here), vintage crossbody bag (lots available on ebay), greige leather purse (similar here), leopard foldover clutch, vintage leather mini purse, black mini backpack (similar here), black cat-eye sunglasses, gold aviator sunglasses (similar here), black oversize sunglasses
