Packing for PARIS!!

By the time you read this post, I will be on my way to PARIS!!  Can you tell I’m a little excited?  This my first time traveling abroad, and there was a ton of planning involved in getting ready for this trip.

Deciding what to take with me was a challenge.  Comfort is a necessity.  There’s going to be a lot of walking, and it could be a little cool at times. But, at the same time, it’s Paris, so you can’t slack off in the style department.  Traveling aboard can also present some challenges, and I didn’t want to have the possibility of my bag not making the flight, so I decided to only take a carry-on.

So, the challenge, taking a stylish wardrobe for 4 days in a single carry-on.  Easy…….?

It started with deciding on a color palette and identifying multiple pieces that could work together.



After trying several outfits on, I culled everything down to a handful of pieces.


I ended up with four bottoms (3 pants, 1 skirt), seven tops, and four pairs of shoes.  Together, they make up 13 outfits, so I’ll have plenty to wear and choose from.

I’m using some space bags to ensure everything fits with room for souvenirs.  Follow me on Instagram to see these outfits in actions, and travel vicariously with me.

Au revoir!  See you in a week!
