To make wise packing decisions, I need to know what the weather is going to be like this weekend in Paris. So we already checked the weather online and I adjust my suitcase accordingly. From June to August it can be sunny and warm in Paris. It’s usually between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. But there is always a chance of cloudy days and rain.
Paris is known for its fashion, but that doesn’t mean everyone is walking around in designer dresses. The best clothing for a summer trip to Paris is versatility. I bring clothes to mix and match, which is easily accomplished if you stick to a single color family. Ok…tried but not fully! I’m planning to wear a white dress with black polka dots, a top with statement sleeves with jeans or striped shirt to go with a pair of denim shorts. Parisians love their jeans so I don’t hesitate to add them into my suitcase.
• Light Jacket
The temperatures will dip at night, so I’ll bring a neutral colored Jacket to wear when I feel chilled. It’s a gris colored suede biker Jacket.
• Flirty sundress
I don’t wanna leave home without a cute sundress or a playsuit. I like something light and comfortable and I chose some that match to the Jacket. I hope it won’t be too cold and rainy, while we are in Paris this weekend so I can wear these beautiful dresses … 😉
• Flat shoes
Ladies, I want divinetly a pair of flat shoes in my suitcase. Because Paris is full of old, cobblestone streets that aren’t suited for heels. Plus, we’ll do a lot of walking and flats are more comfortable anyway. So I chose my new Adidas “Gazelle” Sneakers in gray.
• Hands-free purse or bag
While we’re out touring a bag is a must. Bags that you can toss over your shoulder or a cross-body purse are fashionable and functionally. But also a small backpack is a good choice. It’s wise to bring a bag that has secure top closure, a zipper or flap, to protect your precious belongings from pickpockets. For me, a over the shoulder straw bag works, because the bag has a fabric inlet to close it with a button.
I thinks I’m almost done, just left some jewelries and cosmetics, which I will add today in the evening. Do you like my wardrobe for Paris?
I am of the opinion that my wardrobe is variable and not too much. I also paid attention to the fact that everything is quite light and doesn’t take much space. As we travel only for 4 days, we just booked hand luggage, but I would like to take a few things from Paris as a souvenir as well.
Hope everything fits in this small suitcase. Btw I found this old suitcase in a vintage shop, isn’t it cool?
