Our romantic trip to Paris is just days away, and because we’ve been planning it for so long, it still feels surreal! When Ian and I first started dating, we immediately bonded over our love for French culture and the fact that we can both speak French! When we were falling in love, we spoke often about visiting Paris together one day, and all of the things we’d love to do there. We both absolutely love food, museums, and fashion– and Paris seemed like such a fun bucket list trip for us. Now, all this time later, we are finally going!
Whenever Ian and I go away together, we try not to over-plan and to leave a lot of the day free to go and explore as we please. In our everyday life balancing work and parenting, there is normally very little time for spontaneity! It’s fun when we’re away without the kiddos once a year to really take advantage of being able to see where the day takes us!
And speaking of where the trip will take us, I thought it would be fun today to show you guys all of the items I’m packing for my Parisian getaway! It’s quite chilly there, and we’ll be walking almost everywhere. I am focusing on chic but comfortable daytime lewks, with a few sexier lewks for nighttime. Overall, I’m sticking to a mostly black and brown color palette (I love combining the two), with some fun fabrics mixed in as well. I’m also bringing LOTS of fun lingerie! Check out the items I’m making sure to bring with me below and feel free to refer back here to find the link if you see something you love in my pics while I’m away! I probably won’t be as active on Instagram and in my DMs while I’m there. Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing a whole blog post about our trip once I return!
This tan coat is the main coat I’m bringing to Paris! I love how warm it is, and that it goes with everything.
I got these sunglasses for Christmas, and I can’t wait to bring them on my trip!
5050 Over the Knee Boot
These over-the-knee boots were one of my best purchases of 2022 and I had to bring them with me! They’re super comfortable and look so fab with dresses, leggings, or jeans.
Caitlin Suede High Heel Boot
These are the booties I’m bringing for nighttime! They’re sexy but still comfy.
Merino Wool-Blend Rib Cardigan
I’m wearing this cozy knit set to travel in both there and back!
The Kelly Blazer
This blazer is perfect to pair with jeans or a trouser for a really nice, pulled-together daytime look.
I just got this handbag and it’s my new favorite! I like that it zips closed for extra security, and comes with a crossbody strap too. It’s a great size for transitioning from day to night.
Slim Exaggerated Knit Flare Pants
These black flare pants were a must for me. They go with everything!
Ottoman Squareneck Sweater Tee
I got this simple black top to bring. It’s so flattering and looks elegant enough to transition from day to night.
I am actually IN love with this sexy and boho dress. I can’t wait to wear it to dinner!
Paola Cotton Lined Trousers
I’m packing these trousers for Paris because they’re so comfy and go with everything.
DOLAN Puff-Sleeve Top
This romantic top is pretty for a date night at a more casual spot.
Super High Waisted Baggy Pleated Wide Leg Jeans
These wide-leg jeans are very polarizing…but all the Parisian style blogs I follow are posting pants like this, so I’m bringing them!
I ordered this pretty lingerie set, and can’t wait to christen it in Paris!
30-Inch Large Check-In Spinner Luggage
We bought two of these suitcases for our trip last Spring, and I’m obsessed! We now own four of them!
Didn’t know you guys could both speak French ! I’m French and I would love to hear you speak a bit of French in your stories sometimes 🙂
Can’t wait to read all about this trip.
Have the best time!
