Next week, I’m heading to Paris! I’ve wanted to go for years, or probably decades, and in just a few short days I’ll finally fulfill my dreams of eating macaroons at Laduree Bonaparte, drinking Bordeaux while overlooking the Seine, and pretending I understand the art at the Louvre. Sigh.
Alsooooo, next week also just happens to be Paris Fashion Week. While that’s not the reason for my trip (my husband booked the trip for us, with no thought given to fashion month schedule, talk about a happy accident), the fact that I’ll be in one of the most stylish cities in existence, while some of the chicest people on earth will also be there to ogle couture means my outfits need to be on point.
Needless to say, I’ve put a lot of thought into what I’ll be packing for Paris. My style strategy: Lots of black, minimalist silhouettes, red lipstick, and at least one pair of sneakers so I can shop til I drop (and, if the opportunity somehow presents itself, swiftly chase Kimye down for a photo opp as they leave the Givenchy show).
