Packing For Paris

By March 7, 2016Fashion, Travel

I last visited Paris when I was 21 & I absolutely loved it, it was such a beautiful city that it reached all my expectations & more. It has been far too long since I have been back but finally in 4 days I will be landing in Paris for a long weekend with my boyfriend which coincidentally is his birthday too so double the celebrations. I have been reading endless blog posts, saving Instagram pictures trying to take in everywhere I want to go or an outfit that I have seen.

I know it’s best to be practical, Paris is such a beautiful city it’s best to get some comfortable shoes on to explore properly. I also recently read on the blog of an American girl living in Paris that 80% of her wardrobe is now black, Parisians only wear heels if its a celebratory night out & gym wear is strictly for the gym not for walking down Rue de Cambon in. So I’m trying to take the basics & know I have the weather covered I have pretty much stuck to some old favourites as well as some classic new pieces that have been bought for the trip (any excuse!)
