What to Wear: Paris in the Fall

What to Wear: Paris in the Fall

Another exciting September trip to dress for, this time Paris with Ann:

I am going to Paris for the first time in late September. Shortly after that we are going to Lisbon (work trips for my husband — la la, what a life!). I am badly in need of wardrobe revamping, as I work from home and do not need a professional set of clothes. I also am currently overweight and need to lose about 40 pounds. I am working hard on this and have already lost a few, but I expect realistically to still be 30 pounds over my ideal weight in September. Aside from the weight situation, I am quite petite at just 5’0″.

At this point I was planning on buying a good pair of boots, and good-quality leggings or black jeans and topping with inexpensive tunics and dresses, since my waist is still the body part I’d like to emphasize. I do love black clothes, as well as classics with a small twist of something unique or quirky.

Paris…always an amazing time. Ann is going to love, love, love it! Here’s what I’d pack:

Tunic – The weather could be hot or cold, this light white top works either way and with all kinds of looks.
Sweater – Almost a coat. Thick and cozy. Matches everything.
Jeans – Black skinny pair from Levi’s.
Necklace – From Forever 21.
Handbag – Basic black with a shoulder strap for long days about town.
Hat – A bad idea? Maybe, but hats are fun and vacation is the perfect time to test them out.
Flats – With metallic details.
Boots – Flatties are perfect with jeans, leggings, tights and skirts.
Dress – A little black dress with a snakeskin belt. Pair with a sweater for the day or glam it up at night.
Pumps – Classic kitten heels with a little bow.
Aviators – My favorites.
