In just a few 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 three years, and the place we might wiggle our toddler arms into baguettes to drag out the mushy white bread. My mother has been grieving her husband and I’m excited for this journey to assist cheer her up in a means that typically solely cheese and walking can do.
I can’t wait. So! I’m curious: What do you normally pack for cold-weather journeys? For this February journey, I’ve landed on a primary journey uniform, which I’ll combine up a bit of every day however usually follow:
First up: a navy sweater, which feels hotter and softer than black.
Beneath, I’ll pull on a layering tank. I not too long ago found and LOVE them. It’s so fairly to have a bit of lace on the neck (here it is, in motion). Though this one is splurgy, I’ve already worn it 4 instances within the first two weeks, so the fee per put on goes to be good.
Subsequent, a trusty pair of boy jeans that’s basic and cozy.
Then a inexperienced mac coat to put on over every part. I’m fortunate to have my great-aunt’s hand-me-down, however here’s a good dupe.
The best socks, which are available 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 version!)
Ideas? What do you put on on fall/winter journeys? I’d love to listen to any recs. (I additionally lastly obtained into packing cubes, and thanks a lot to the reader who really useful Baby Cheeks🙂
P.S. My England packing list, and a genius honeymoon packing tip. Plus, a CoJ trip to Paris a while back with the world’s tiniest elevator, eeeeeeeeeks.
