Capsule wardrobe for a trip to Paris this September
I am planning a very exciting short trip to Paris at the end of September. This visit will be purely for pleasure and not for work. I will be travelling with my daughter and one of my best friends and her daughter. It is an interesting story as this friendship spans three generations starting with our mothers being very good friends and our daughters carrying on the tradition. So I am looking forward to some laughs.
I am sure I will spend some time sitting in cafes “people watching”. One of my favourite occupations. I will then be able to let you know what the chic
I have started to plan my capsule wardrobe. The image above shows what I will be wearing for the journey. I find a lightweight mac essential for travelling as you never know when a shower can occur.

Capsule wardrobe for a trip to Paris this September. In my bag (I will only be taking a rucksack) I will have a silk cream shirt, which I plan to wearing under my check jacket for dinner on Saturday night, teamed with my black trousers and flat black pumps.

Also some costume jewellery.
I will be keeping the colour palette neutral with a few flashes of colour. I find that the Parisians keep their basic items dark toned and then add brighter colours with their accessories. It will be interesting to see how they are styling their outfits this year.

You can see what I wore for an October trip to Paris a couple of years ago. I do remember it being quite chilly then and having to buy a thermal vest.
