When I travel I prefer to only pack a carry-on. Most people are confused as to why and more importantly how that is possible, especially on long trips. The key to packing light is to pack items that mix well together and to not be afraid to wear an item more than once. I try to limit my jewelry to a couple of pairs of earrings and one or two statement pieces. Accessories that I pack are items that pair well with any outfit or piece. I also check ahead for the weather, and contact the hotel to find out if they have items like blow dryers on hand.
Without further adieu, I give you the first of many in this series, 10 Days in Paris. Right now the climate is moderate and there is a slight chance of rain. This trip is a casual one that includes sight-seeing and shopping.

Day 1. You’ll probably spend a lot of time in the air today, so dress comfortably and in layers. Getting through security will be a breeze in these slip on flats. I always get hot or cold on the plane so I like to wear a scarf. I also like to keep my more valuable items with me like my jewelry, passport, etc. A hat and sunglasses top off the look so I can snooze if I’d like.
Day 2. Your first real day in Paris, you may want to dress a little fancy?
Day 3. Breaking out the heels!
Day 4. A bit cooler today but luckily you brought lots of layers to keep you comfortable.
Day 5. Moving along.
Day 6. Glitzy again.
Day 7. Comfy chic.
Day 8. Chance of showers.
Day 9. Last full day. Boo.
Day 10. Headed home. Layered head-to-toe and time to catch up on those Zzz’s.
So there you have it, packing light for a 10 day trip to Paris, France. There will most likely be extra room in your bag for negligees and perhaps something to sleep in.
Do you have a destination that you want me to pack for? Let me know in the comments and I’ll be happy to add it to my “Travel Light” to do list.
