HAPPY FRIDAY!!! This afternoon we will leave Seattle for our vacation in Paris!! YAYYYYYYY!! We are so excited with this trip for many reasons! First of all, we NEED a vacation!!! That’s it!! lol Second of all, even though I lived in Paris before and Marilyn has been there many times… It’s going to be our first time together in the city of love!!
The last couple of weeks we have been daydreaming for 24 hours about everything Paris… even the outfits we are going to wear there! lol
I don’t know about you but every time when I leave for vacation and I start to think about the clothes, shoes and accessories that I want take with me it is a mix of excitement and frustration at the same time. I used to take too much of everything and ended up wearing less than half of what I brought with me. No matter if it is in summer – if it’s a beach place- most the time I spend my day in my bikini- or fall/winter you wear basically pants, coats, boots and scarf. Right??!
This time I am challenging myself!! I want to take with me way less clothes than I usually do. I want to be creative about mixing accessories and shoes. So these are the multi-purpose items I cannot miss in my luggage!! Below you have two looks wearing the same legging, boots, coat, purse and sweater. I added a skirt for a girly look!
Leggings are a great multi-purpose item! You can use them for added warmth, pants or pajamas. A basic set of black leggings is wearable with anything.
Stretch skinny jeans and trousers are great to use as your base and provide a comfortable and stylish addition to any packing list.
Scarves can bring a touch of much-needed colour and femininity to an otherwise neutral wardrobe. Choose from a color range of bright and print pieces. And for those evenings off, cozy slippers and socks can be a life-saver.
For a night out bring with you a black dress and add accessories. BAM!! Top with a tank or cover up with a button down top. Style it up for a night out or make it casual for day.
