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.

Oui, Oui, Paris!

Pants:  J.Crew pixie pants / Gap sexy boyfriend jeans

Tops:  J Crew striped shirt / J Crew t shirt / Uniqlo draped blouse / Topshop striped sleeveless shell

Skirt:  Topshop scuba pleated skirt

Dress:  Topshop striped dress

Jackets:  French Connection tweed jacket / Nasty Gal anorak /American Eagle Outfitters hooded zip sweatshirt

Bags:  Clare Vivier calf hair clutch / Coach crossbody handbag

Shoes:  Zara pink pumps / Aerosoles smoking flats / Converse sneakers

Necklaces:  BaubleBar gemstone pendant / BaubleBar multi-chain statement necklace

Now, here is the fun part- mixing and matching!  Since all of the pieces in your suitcase share a color palate, coordinating is a snap.

Take me with you, PLEASE?!

So, tell me, what packing tips/trips do YOU have up your sleeve?

XOXO,

Stella

    Love this! I’m DYING to go to Paris – I’ve been dropping not so subtle hits that I want to go for our ten year wedding anniversary – just three more years to go! Love the outfits you put together! xoxo

      Thanks so much, Jennifer! How funny… I’m 2 1/2 years away from my 10 year anniversary and I just made the same travel request to my husband! Paris is AMAZING… and I can’t wait to finally share it with my guy. Maybe, we’ll see you there!
      XOXO, Stella
