As promised, thought you might be interested in what I'll be taking with me when I leave for Paris in a few days.
This was a bit challenging. There are some warm days, and cool days, at least one day of rain, and even when the days are warm my experience here is that it cools down quickly in the evening in September.
But I am always up for a challenge and am very happy with my choices!
Colour stories are sensible for trips and mine is mostly navy, creams and green.
First up: jackets.
I am taking two jackets: a lightweight navy anorak with hood and my old H&M fatigue jacket.
All very lightweight. A knit maxi dress, a short dress, an Eileen Fisher black jersey dress and my gold knit skirt.
On silk broderie tunic blouse:
Sweater: navy cashmere cardigan for the plane (layer, layer, layer on the plane I say - I am always freezing in the middle of the night!), a creamy pullover, a green cardigan and a lightweight flax sweater set from J Crew that I bought on sale months ago.
As for accessories, I am bringing three pair of fun earrings and some inexpensive bracelets
Three scarves: a chambray one, an iridescent green one (hard to tell from the picture) and a heavy black one that will double as my blanket on the plane:
Given the latest weather forecast, I am iffy on taking walking sandals. I do need some bling, so I will pack these oldies, but goodies:
I will have knit gloves, a little knit beanie and an umbrella with me as well. For the plane I am bringing cozy socks and slippers to change into (and the cutest blackout mask):
Basically, nothing over the top, and all things that can roll to become very small. I will need room in my suitcase for gifts!
I reserve the right for last minute substitutions, but I hope they are few!
I will be posting pictures and stories on Instagram and Facebook, so by all means, follow along!
Talk to you as soon as we are back! Am I missing anything?
