Lately I’ve been sharing a lot more about my real life outfits from my travels and packing lists, so today I thought I’d add another post to the What I Wore Series. Our trip to Paris wasn’t very long, but with fall in swing and winter on the horizon, I thought I’d share what I wore during my trip to Paris last winter.
Packed: 1. Wool Hat, similar Cuyana Felted Wool Hat / 2. Cuyana Silk Camisole / 3. Heidi Merrick Striped Drake Tee, similar Proenza Schouler Striped Top / 4. Lightweight Cashmere Scarf, similar Cuyana Lightweight Alpaca Scarf / 5. Cuyana Long Sleeve Turtleneck Tee / 6. Community V-Neck Wool Dress, similar Everlane Cashmere Midi Dress / 7. Chambray Shirt / 8. VS Knockout High Rise Tight / 9. Cuyana Open Cashmere Cardigan / 10.Alexander Wang Rose Gold Gabi Booties / 11. Veja Esplar Sneaker / 12. Acne Studios Skin 5 Pocket Black Denim
My packing list was inspired by my Winter in Paris packing list but since my trip was much shorter than 10 days it only included roughly 13 items plus my usual Prada sunglasses, a black J.Crew wool coat (lower price on the J.Crew Factory City Coat), and my usual Cuyana Leather Zipper Tote.
Wearing Wool Hat (similar Cuyana Felted Wool Hat), Prada sunglasses, Cuyana Silk Camisole, Cuyana Open Cashmere Cardigan, black J.Crew wool coat, VS Knockout High Rise Tight, Alexander Wang Rose Gold Gabi Booties, and carrying my usual Cuyana Leather Zipper Tote with a Tumi Tegra-Lite International Carry-On.
Day 1, Fly from San Jose to Paris via Frankfurt
We spent a lot of time in transit during this day, so accommodating the varying temperature between the plane and airport areas along with the necessary comfort requirements of long-haul travel was my priority. Once we arrived we checked in and headed to dinner.
Wearing a wool hat (similar Cuyana Felted Wool Hat), Heidi Merrick Striped Drake Tee (similar Proenza Schouler Striped Top), Acne Studios Skin 5 Pocket Black Denim, Alexander Wang Rose Gold Gabi Booties, Acne Studios Skin 5 Pocket Black Denim, a black J.Crew wool coat (lower price on the J.Crew Factory City Coat), and my usual Cuyana Leather Zipper Tote.
Day 2, Professional Tourists
We attempted to pack in a lot of major tourist sites today and did quite a bit of walking around town.
Day 3, New heights.
We visited both a museum and an observation tower today. Lots more walking.
Wearing Lightweight Cashmere Scarf, similar Cuyana Lightweight Alpaca Scarf, Cuyana Long Sleeve Turtleneck Tee, J.Crew wool coat (lower price on the J.Crew Factory City Coat), Acne Studios Skin 5 Pocket Black Denim, Veja Esplar Sneaker, Cuyana Leather Zipper Tote.
Day 4, Wandering sights.
While we had lots of plans for today, most of it was spent wandering the Musee du Louvre and the catacombs.
Day 5, Thursday
Scraped our original plan of leaving the city to see Versailles and chose to visit the Salvador Dali museum, Sacre-Coeur, and Notre Dame. It involved lots of walking and steps (again, ha). It even decided to rain a little on this day.
Day 6, Friday
3AM wake up call to fly back home. I basically wore the same outfit I flew in with and it’s something I typically do as long as my clothing isn’t too dirty to re-wear. I am a creature of comfort, what can I say?
Paris outfit and packing list notes.
As far as the weather and our activities, what I packed was perfect. I didn’t end up wearing every single item but still felt like I had plenty of items to cover changes in weather and activities. If I had to leave a couple of items at home, it would likely be my wool dress and the ankle boots. I didn’t wear either at all after landing in Paris.
