My last post on packing proved a success, and I realised I don’t often do ‘how to’ posts very often. As someone who travels (light) A LOT with work, I take things like packing for a minibreak for granted.
This time in Paris, I think I really cracked it. As it was only one night I was uber minimal but also discovered that a monochrome packing system really solves any wardrobe dilemmas, everything matches and has the added bonus of always looking chic. Et voila!
|Sandals: Vagabond. Jumper: Theory. Culottes: Asos|
|Lightweight trench: Maison Scotch at Atterley Road (sadly sold out but there are lots of other great coats in the sale)|
Side Note: culottes make EXCELLENT travelling trousers! I was dubious about culottes but since buying my first pair, I have not really taken them off. This pair from Asos are super comfy, have pockets as well as an elasticated waist, and look just as good with flats as they do with heels. Also, the outfit styled up on the website couldn’t be more apt…

Where We Stayed: Hotel Verneuil
|The lounge area in Hotel Verneuil|
We found this Hotel via Conde Nast Traveller: Best boutique hotels in Paris for under £200 – our perfect link! We knew we wanted to stay near Musee D’Orsay and this lovely hotel in St Germain was beautiful, really comfy (if slightly tiny) rooms and a stones throw from everything on our to-do list.
Where we ate: Brasserie Lipp
Steak frites in an age old Parisien establishment – what more could one ask for?! (and yes, those chips tasted as good as they looked).
What better way to escape the rain than a cup of pure, molten hot chocolate? Heaven…

Au revoir until next time, Paris!
