Oui, Oui, Paris! :: What to Pack for a 5-Day European Getaway

Oui, Oui, Paris! Header

Ok, I’m a total self-admitted Francophile.  I love to eat, wear, see, smell or hear anything French.  I even posted about my love for the French HERE.  So when a friend asked me to help create a Paris packing list for her upcoming June getaway with her husband, I obviously jumped on it.  In addition to my French obsession, I’m the queen of packing.  No, really.  Don’t challenge me.  I’ll take you down.

When putting this list together, there were a few factors I had to keep in mind:

1) Ideally, all of these clothes should fit in a carry-on.  I don’t do checked bags.

2) I need to plan enough outfits for 5 days, including at least 1 day trip to Versailles and 1 dressy romantic dinner.

3) The clothes needed to be suitable for typical June weather in Paris: a mid-60’s avg high temperature, with cooler nights.
