What to Pack for Paris (Part Deux)

• 15 April 2010


















I was cruising through Prêt à Voyager looking for something in her archives, when I stumbled across this post. Anne (who is also one of the talented editors over at Design*Sponge) wrote the most brilliant and concise post I've seen on the subject of what to pack for Paris. Since I seem to always (and I mean always) pack the wrong items of clothing to wear on any trip, it's particularly helpful to me. Nichole's contribution was also much-appreciated...three black long-sleeved tees....check...two pairs of dark jeans...check...you get the idea.

My original post (part 1) shares a little background info as well as a list of street fashion blogs showcasing local Parisians and what they are donning right now--as in today. You may find it helpful if you're thinking about heading to Paris this year!

What air carrier do you fly to France? Are there any great deals to be had?

Oh yes, I have SUCH issues with knowing what to pack. I always think that I've pared it down and picked the perfect things. Inevitably, I find myself with too much. I think it's good to bring things that work well in multiple varying combinations. so tough! I'm always afraid I'll miss something (funny, I never do)!

Anna, this is actually a tough year when it comes to finding deals. It appears there aren't many to be had (although I'm sure people with more skills in this category could find a deal b/c some people have that special gift!). If there were a year to use miles, this might be it.

To answer your question about carriers...we fly on whatever airline offers us the best deal :)

This reminds me of the first time someone asked me for directions in Chicago (where I was visiting myself)--I was seventeen years old, just returned from Paris, and wearing head-to-toe black and sunglasses. I felt so flattered that I didn't look like a tourist!

I know what you mean! I always pack for every possible situation that could arise (because, you know, the odds of me getting invited to a black tie event are SO likely) and I always end up yearning for pieces like the ones Anne mentioned.
