In a number of weeks, my mother and I are taking a brief journey to Paris — the town the place she birthed my sister and me, the place she raised us for 3 years, and the place we’d wiggle our toddler arms into baguettes to tug out the smooth white bread. My mother has been grieving her husband and I’m excited for this journey to assist cheer her up in a method that typically solely cheese and strolling can do.
I can’t wait. So! I’m curious: What do you often pack for cold-weather journeys? For this February journey, I’ve landed on a fundamental journey uniform, which I’ll combine up a bit every day however typically follow:
First up: a navy sweater, which feels hotter and softer than black.
Beneath, I’ll pull on a layering tank. I just lately found and LOVE them. It’s so fairly to have a bit lace on the neck (right here it’s, in motion). Though this one is splurgy, I’ve already worn it 4 occasions within the first two weeks, so the associated fee per put on goes to be good.
Subsequent, a trusty pair of boy denims that’s basic and comfortable.
Then a inexperienced mac coat to put on over every thing. I’m fortunate to have my great-aunt’s hand-me-down, however right here’s a superb dupe.
The most effective socks, which are available in 18 colours.
And, lastly, final however not least, white sneakers, which might take you from croissant runs and museum rambles to park adventures and wine bars. (I’m additionally VERY into this retro model!)
Ideas? What do you put on on fall/winter journeys? I’d love to listen to any recs. (I additionally lastly received into packing cubes, and thanks a lot to the reader who really helpful Child Cheeks🙂
P.S. My England packing checklist, and a genius honeymoon packing tip. Plus, a CoJ journey to Paris some time again with the world’s tiniest elevator, eeeeeeeeeks.
