Living With Great Style

Travel Essentials: Paris

Paris Map | Sacramento StreetTravel Essentials: Paris | Sacramento StreetWhile I’m still daydreaming about the three days I spent in Paris, I wanted to share the travel essentials that I loved having with me. When packing for Paris I always try to remember that everyone dresses a little more chic – even for a quick run to the grocery store. With that being said, I packed a few things that could easily dress up any outfit.

For this leg of our journey I brought my trusty leather jacket, a fur scarf for the evenings and my pair of boots with a low enough heel that I could walk for miles in. Pair all of these items with a large tote that can carry most purchases and you are golden to hit the streets of Paris.

Stay tuned for a guide to my favorite spots in Paris coming later today!

      Thanks Molly! I always bring one or two extra bags with me. You never know what you’ll find! Thanks for always leaving such sweet comments. xx

    Fur? Really?

  • Stacey says:

    I’m impressed that you were able to walk miles in those booties. I brought a pair of motorcycle boots to Paris a few years ago and by mid-day my legs and back were in pain!! My trip in May will consist of a pair of Arche walking shoes. Not as cool as your booties, but sometimes comfort just has to take precedence. That tote is amazing, but I would be terrified I would leave it somewhere. Gorgeous. Love your site!

      I always do a little better in a small heel – it’s probably because I have high arches. I could never walk around in more than a 2 inch heel though. That would be horrible. Thanks for leaving a comment!

    Will you do another one of these for my upcoming June trip – a summer edition if you will!? Love it!

    • Caitlin says:

      For you, I can definitely put together a summer edition. When are you going? Can I come with you?

  • Mallory says:

    Love everything on this list…the jacket, the shoes, the bag…I want it all!

    Great collection of travel outfit ideas. Black, jeans, ankle booties, nude nails, and some posh accessories. Yup. P.S. This works for NYC too.
