If you’ll be traveling to Paris, here’s my packing list for a weekend in La Ville-Lumière.
During my recent trip I visited concept stores like Colette but also small charity shops and cafés, so to start our adventure we want to look like a local and in the next days I will share my secret Paris address book with you.
The Ultimate Paris Packing List
From the left
Nina wide leg trousers
An effortless piece with great fit and shape.
A pair of classic brogues made with the softest leather and suede. Confortable but stilish, just perfect for walking along the Seine.
Always pack a lightweight umbrella. From personal experience I can tell you that an afternoon storm is always around the corner (I have spent half an hour in Montmartre hiding under a tree ;-)).
LUCIE Classic Fit Printed Shirt
Cotton shirt featuring a scotty dog print with a flattering fit.
Carry-On aluminum suitcase
I am looking for a new hand-suitcase to replace my current one and this from Tumi is on my wish list: made from durable aluminum, dual-spinning wheels and very sleek style.
Which bag is more appropriate for a weekend in Paris than a Chanel?
A Chanel Boy Bag!
The Boy Bag is a newcomer compared to the Classic Flap, but it’s quickly becoming very popular and if the Classic Flap is too grown-up for you, the Boy Bag is a more casual, modern option.
If you don’t want to get a mortgage to buy one, remember that there are many online markeplaces for second hand designer pieces. My newest discovery is Rebelle.com
Power plump lip crayon
From the cult brand Sleek makeup, a crayon to draw your lip with the perfect colour.
Found it in my monthly Glossybox
Tenue de Soirée
The last rays of sun warm the zinc rooftops with a golden light.
A woman rushes up the stairs of her Haussmann building, her heels in hand.
A moment suspended in time.
Tenue de Soirée is the essence of impertinence. It feels different from the other Annick Goutal’s perfumes, it’s the signature of an evening suspended in time, as the feeling I always get in Paris.
Feminine and sensual scent with a joyful touch in the packaging, a purple pompom, memory of a vintage powder puff.
By Annick Goutal.
