I decided to go with a fall Paris Packing list this week because I like to follow the reasons that people are visiting my blog. By checking the trends and sources of these trends I can see what people are looking for at a particular time.

So based on my Google traffic, Pinterest, and popularity of posts for the last couple of weeks I have noticed the trend that people are searching for Paris packing lists.

So instead of having the traffic all direct to old posts, I like to try to make an updated version and place the new link in the old posts, if that makes any sense?

So that is a long-winded way of saying that a lot of people might be visiting Paris this fall season and I am updating the packing list.

The traffic trend also was showing a neutral, minimalist capsule wardrobe, so I somewhat hybridized those two concepts into this post.

I find that the packing lists also make a great starting off point for capsule wardrobes as well which actually makes a lot of sense since ultimately a packing list is a more condensed version of a capsule wardrobe.

You often just need a few things to round it out for an entire season.

As you can see, I included the blue boots that I bought for my birthday because they are awesome. I also included them because they add a nice bit of visual interest to an otherwise fairly neutral wardrobe.

Plus, they have a block heel that is easy to walk in. If you are going to wear any type of heel while travelling, especially to Europe, a block heel is the best choice.

Any heel that is too thin can be very hard to manoeuvre on cobblestone streets.

You can see me wearing them here.

I also included a pair of boyfriend jeans that I bought from Zara recently, and I love them.

They are the perfect wash, button fly, slightly slouchy with a wider cute straight leg. The length is perfect on my 5’3″ body, but they also look fantastic cuffed.

They remind me of vintage Levi’s, and they are also 100% cotton which means they will stretch and break in with wear and become even better.

I got my regular size and I love the way they fit. I am looking forward to when I work them in a bit too though to see how they relax. You can see me wearing them here and here.

I don’t wash jeans very often. You actually aren’t supposed to according to Levi’s care guide, which makes jeans a really great choice for bringing on vacation.

It doesn’t usually get too cold in the fall, so a trench coat is a nice coat option, along with a blazer that layers over what you are bringing, and on the days that you don’t need a coat a sweater will or cardigan will work instead.

Shown below are some outfit ideas for what to wear in Paris, put together from this packing list.
