With less than four days till I leave Paris (!!!), I’m working on squeezing everything into my suitcase before I depart. Today I’m sharing my packing list and favorite travel essentials (especially for international trips!) to help inspire and get you prepped too for your next trip!
CLASSIC STAPLES: My Paris wardrobe is all focused on sticking with a cohesive palette and classic, chic staples that I can easily mix and match. From striped tees, cashmere cable knit, midi skirts and LBDs, I wanted to bring pieces that I can also dress up and dress down easily, like this midi dress that looks chic with heels or tennis shoes.
COMFORTABLE WALKING SHOES: Speaking of tennis shoes, I’m all about the leather sneaker and love how they are so easy to throw on each day with no matter what I’m wearing. This pair was my favorite this past year (and so comfortable!) but I just picked up this pair to bring as well as I love the crisp whiteness of them. Along with my sneakers, my Chanel ballet flats and Gucci mules will be making the trip because not only are they are a stylish everyday shoe, they are so comfortable as well!
HEADBANDS GALORE: With a lot of simple pieces, I’m all about adding a headband to add something extra! Headbands are also perfect for two day hair (this pack of Gucci lookalikes under $14 is my current fave) so when short on time, they’re an easy fix!
TRAVEL ESSENTIALS: I’ve made the mistake before of not bringing hair tools and steamers that aren’t dual voltage on international trips so I’m making sure I’m equipped with ones that actually work this time! This hand held steamer is a game changer for wrinkly clothes and for plane must haves, it’s all about face masks and staying comfortable!
