What to Pack??? - Paris

This post is for the ladies!
It's a little over a week before we leave for Paris and I am wrecking my brain on what to pack?
Well Google did come in handy this time around!
Although it seems like the weather in Paris in summer can be very unpredictable I narrowed it down to the following:

- Umbrella is a must (luckily I bought Lelande and myself umbrellas that fit into our handbags)
- Maps!
- Camera & Charger (I will die without my camera)

Try and pack light, layer layer layer!!! (If Cedric sees this he will crack up, he knows I struggle with this)
Pack to mix and match your clothing items, this way you pack less, and you will never look like you wore the same outfit twice.

- Comfortable open-toe shoes (for the very hot days)
- Comfortable closed-toe shoes (for the chillier days)
- A nice pair of heels for the evenings out (preferably a pair that you can wear with all your clothes)
- Cardigans
- Long sleeve shirts
- Vest tops
- Skirts and Shorts
- Jeans
- SCARVES and ACCESSORIES (with this you can make a outfit go from drab to fab in seconds)
- Sunglasses

And then obviously you will bring all your basic keep clean and look good essentials:

- Toiletries
- Hairdryer
- Make up (try and stick to the au natural look, plus you are on holiday so no one is watching you - kidding)
- Sunscreen with a high SPF (look after your pretty little skin, it's yours forever, can't get a new one)

And then something I cannot go without, my "make me feel irresistible" perfum.

This is so exciting, and if you forget something, don't sweat, you are still in a normal functioning country and have more or less the same shops you have in your home town to buy your missing items. (Just a good excuse to go shopping)

  1. I always pack way more than I ever use on vacation. Hope you have a great time. If you're looking to make new blogger friends (I'm a new blogger too), I join in on a few link-ups. That way you can see what others are up to and they can see you. All the best.

  2. Thank you very much, will be following you!

    That's my problem too, always pack too much!


  3. Hi Johlet! Have fun on your travels and always err on the too little side... I've spent enough time lugging suitcases through French train stations to know that your arms will thank you!
    peace&love, Jill
