I have a lot of requests to blow through so bear with me if you see more than one per week, because I am trying to catch up and get them out before the trips take place. It’s not easy when you are trying to concentrate and your husband is watching Tiny Homes and keeps interrupting you (because I am 3 feet away at the computer) to let you know (again) that he wants to move in to a bus. I’m sure you can guess what my feeling on that are right? ;)
This request is for a 10 day trip to both Paris and Prague in August and comes via Instagram. I was going through my usual sites that I use to find clothing picks and I found that I kept pulling pieces from the same store over and over so I decided to do something totally different this week and make a packing light list based on picks entirely from one store. And no this isn’t sponsored. I just discovered & Other Stories and find they are right up my alley in style and price-wise. I find them comparable with Zara whom I also love, but also different enough to pique my interest.
When I was making the choices I picked exactly what I would pack myself if I was going on this trip (heavy on the neutrals and black). I kind of feel like I went into my closet a picked these pieces straight out. My choices consist of:
- 4 shirts (tank, graphic tee, striped shirt, silk blouse)
- 2 sweaters (black off the shoulder, and v-neck)
- 2 pairs of jeans in an ankle skimming cropped style (blue, and dark)
- Skirt in knee to mid length
- 2 dresses (a black shirt dress, and a simple white dress)
- Light jacket (I also really like this one if you like a bolder style)
- 3 pairs of shoes (walking shoe, slide, and maybe a sandal for summer)
- Accessories (light scarf, hat, sunglasses)
- 2 purses (one smaller crossbody style, and one shoulder bag/tote)
I am also slowly getting back in to jewelry after many years of being completely over it. Although I would never bring a lot of it on a trip, I would definitely bring a watch, and then maybe a simple necklace, and a bracelet to add some dressiness to what I was wearing. Throw on some red lipstick and you have a very simple, yet effortlessly chic “French” wardrobe. I hope you like my choices as much as I do this week.
