Since I was a little girl I knew I will travel the world. Even when I grew up in such a small country as Slovakia is we were lucky enough to travel a lot. My first dream came true when I came to England and then I went to Canada. But I had a list of destinations/cities what I wanted to visit. And as for many of us, Paris is one of them. Even when I worked as a tourist guide I wasn’t lucky enough to visit Paris. But finally, my dream coming closer as we booked a Eurostar train to Paris. I am looking forward to spending a few days in Paris. And here is what I am going to wear.
Cami Top / White T-shirt / Dress / Jeans / Trenchcoat / Skirt / Mules / Slides / Tote Bag / Sunglasses
Travel Light For A Few Days In Paris
As I am getting older and since I created a capsule wardrobe packing became the easy part of the trip. I was inspired by the 10×10 challenge, so I am packing for 4 days with the 5 items plus a coat for rain and an air-conditioned train.
What I Packed
Jeans – I love them and wear them all the time. So why not to wear them in Paris? Parisians are well known for their stylish take on jeans anyway. I will take my black pair as they are my most comfortable jeans, and I also feel the best in them.
White t-shirt – at the moment I don’t wear any other colour t-shirt except for white. I will take Organic Basics as this a cotton t-shirt works magic in hot days. It works hard for you, you can wear it for more days in a row and it doesn’t stink.
Silk Cami Top – lightweight and chic. Can be dressed down or dress up. If the rain decides to cross our way I will wear it with the trenchcoat.
Dress – all I need for a hot day. I love the simplicity of this dress, looks good without a belt too. And what I also found really useful that it has buttons all the way up, when I lean towards the kids there is not much to see ;).
Skirt – if it happens to be more sunny days I have another outfit possibility. Or to wear it with the tights for colder days.
Trenchcoat – pumps up even the simplest outfit and it boosts my confidence. Strange, but it works the magic.
Shoes – I will take a maximum of 2 pairs. For hot day slides and for everything else mules will do. I was considering the white trainers as we plan to walk a lot, but if I do take them, mules will stay home. Both shoes are the right choice for outfit possibilities.
I was thinking about little swaps like instead of black jeans to go for blue Levis. Both are straight legs one but as I mentioned above the comfort is everything. Or instead of black cami to go for white, but with 2 small kids could be useless. I have to consider everything when I plan my outfits.
