Following my previous post My trip to Paris, I wanted to continue to share with you how well my capsule wardrobe adapted to my two days in Paris. Generally, I was very pleased with my choices. However, as I started my journey in the South of France I was lulled into thinking that the temperatures in Paris would be similar or slightly cooler. They were not. It was distinctly chilly when I arrived. Luckily I had brought a couple of large wool scarves which I was able to wrap around my shoulders. Especially useful when Susan and I dined in the local bistros. We sat outside at tables on the Parisian pavements.
What I learnt was that it is always a good idea to add a thermal vest to one’s capsule travel wardrobe. They are light, easily rolled into a ball and take up very little room in your case. On the second morning of our stay in Paris, Susan and I headed to the local Uniqlo store to purchase a couple of their heattech tops. I chose a nude colour (UK) (US). An ideal choice as it works with all colours including white and cream tops. Uniqlo USA
A trick I always recommend when packing for a trip is to include a variety of scarves. With only two outfits (see my post on (what to pack for a trip to Paris), I was able to create a variety of looks. My leopard print scarf gave my outfit a cleaner more formal feel, whereas my wool shawl kept me warm.
