We’re going to Paris for a few days for my birthday (which is on Sunday)! It should be excellent: we have our own appartment in the 10th arrondissement so we can take it easy in the mornings and the weather forecast couldn’t be better! I plan to eat a lot of yummy food and wander about and speak French again!
Anyway, since this is a fashion blog of sorts, I thought you might be interested in hearing about my packing strategy, which can be summed up in two words: colourful basics. I am taking three vest tops, three tshirts and three long sleeve jersey tops, all in different single colours, plus a blue denim skirt, black linen trousers and a pair of jeans. Add some colourful accessories, a pair of smart shoes and a pair of casual shoes and I am completely prepared for any temperature, and can mix and match as I see fit. And there will be space in my bag for some shopping!
