When it comes to City breaks I find them not that easy to pack for maybe because I overthink & my mind starts wondering if I am taking the correct clothes for what we had in store. Knowing we were going to be exploring Paris as we actually made no plans & took each day as it came, spontaneously deciding what we wanted to do. So with this in mind I knew I wanted to be comfortable & still feel as though I had made that effort in the fashion capital.
Shoes for me is always the tricky part, so I packed 2 pairs of flat comfortable shoes that I could team with any of my outfits. These silver brogues are a current favourite of mine, I just love them. They are surprisingly comfortable the platform sole makes them light enough to wear all day. Starting with my shoes I worked my way up & stuck to classic skinny jeans, it was still chilly in Paris in March so jeans were practical to wear.
Teaming it with this white shirt that I picked up in Topshop the week earlier I was drawn to the length & the hidden front pockets, it makes it more than a standard white shirt. Knowing that we were likely to be out all day the jeans & shirt combo was practical for the day & smart enough for the evening when we stayed out for dinner. A tip, the French don’t get overly dresses up for dinner, I hardly seen any high heels so I felt this gave me the right balance.
Selecting which coat to pack wasn’t easy but I had to take my pink fluffy friend that I purchased when I was in Madrid in October. It’s definitely not an every day coat but it seemed the right coat to take to add that something else to my outfit. Yes my Parisian Uniform was basic pieces so I wanted to add something special with my coat plus it’s super warm & handy when your on top of a windy Eiffel Tower! AA x
