Parisian Fashion

I love clothing - t shirts, sweaters, cardigans, tunics, jeans, leggings, pencil skirts, almond-toed heels (used to love the pointy -toed ones but then my bunions got in the way - sorry if TMI), Tory Burch flats, riding boots, Melissa jellies...the list could go on and on.  (Might be a future post...hmmmmm).

I digress...OK, so before I traveled overseas I needed to research what the Parisians are wearing.  I remember, when booking my honeymoon to Italy, our travel agent told us "NO WHITE SNEAKERS".  That was very good advice :).  In my google travels I came across some great posts that helped to mold my luggage contents.  It seems that Parisians love scarves (hence the 7 that I packed, maybe a little overkill).  
I noticed many (many, many) ladies wearing skirts or shorts with tights and then riding boots or some other kind of knee high boots.  

Trench coats were all over - on men and women - in solid colors and prints.  So glad I bought mine before the trip!
As usual, I over packed.  I think I packed about 7 white and off white long sleeve shirts to wear under my 6 sweaters (for 5 days LOLOL).  I like to have choices.  

Black is a big "color" there as well...something I remember reading but apparently didn't stick in my head as I packed browns and time!!  (Oh, and one day I had to wear white sneakers.  My feet were killing me from all of the walking we did.  Thankfully, a Parisian friend of Anouk's was wearing her white sneakers so we both looked like tourists hahahahaha).
