The packing list for this week is a honeymoon in April trip to Paris, France. It’s actually 5 days in Paris and 7 days on a cruise on the Rhone River but that’s too long for a title, so Paris it is 😉 Keeping in mind that the wearer is 40+ and her chosen colours being shades of grey (hehe) and blue this was the idea I put together.
In April the weather is transitioning to spring and can still be cool, even cold at times. That tied with being on the river for the cruise made me include more sweaters, and heavier knit items. My inspiration was a bit of minimalism combined with a hint of Audrey Hepburn. I included heels in this list because people tend to dress up for dinner on cruises in varying degrees of formal, although I did choose a lower kitten heel style for more comfort.
I tried to keep the list streamlined, versatile, and affordable (the wool coat is at the higher end at $250), while still easy to replicate from you own closet or from other stores. I hope I was able to give you some good inspiration for your trip. As always several of these pieces are included as your travel outfit. TYou wear the heaviest/bulkiest items to keep the suitcase light. Outfit ideas will be in the next post.
Do you have a favourite colour palette when you travel?
