When I go away I actually never plan my outfits. I know, shock horror. I usually put all of my favourites clothes in a suitcase, a couple of extras (just in case my plan goes wrong), and hope for the best. I don’t wear something completely different everyday, I’m sure many of you are the same. I have a few select bits I like to switch around with other favourite bits. For instance, I have a select few jumpers and tops that will work well with trousers, jeans and a skirt.

Nonetheless, I manage to over pack every time I go away and I seriously don’t know how it happens. I blame the beauty bits and the shoes.

As I’ve got older, I like to purchase more staple pieces that I know will work with many other things. That’s just how I like to go about my wardrobe and also my travel outfits. Call me crazy, but it’s not gone wrong (yet!).

Whilst packing for Paris, like I do most trips, I think more carefully about the shoes I’m taking and I think for this trip, it worked really well. I like to take as many as I can just in case and in fact I did indeed over pack on the shoe department. That happens all the time for me though so it wasn’t a surprise.

I ended up liking each of my outfits and for the 3 days I was there, here is what I pieced together. Weather appropriate and all (I did pretty good I must say).

Day One

Day one, of course, started with travelling and I wore the outfit below but with my Adidas Three Stripe Black leggings for comfort. I can’t travel without them now they’re just too comfy.

After arriving at the hotel and being a bit too early for check-in, I decided to change and put on a bit of makeup. The 4am start really wasn’t calling for applying makeup. Rolling out of bed and putting on my clothes was enough.

Knowing I was going to be doing a lot of walking as we arrived just before midday, I opted for jeans over trousers and kept my trainers on. It’s fairly chilly in Paris during December so jeans are a good option, as was my jacket.

I’m growing a small collection of these slim mom jeans as they work well with so many outfits. They’re the type you just throw on and think yeah, I’m good to go. I have my eye on a black pair next. These paired with a long sleeve jumper, my trainers and my cropped faux fur jacket were my outfit of the day. Oh yeah, and a few little bits of jewellery to add a ‘trying to make an effort’ effect, which worked kinda well I hope.

Day Two

The second day I knew I wanted to make a bit more effort, especially in the shoe department.

We left for Paris the day after my birthday and I was treated to these gorgeous boots that I can’t get enough of. I sure get a few stares in them but I take that as good measure.

Although we walked a lot on day two (26,000 steps to be precise), these boots were surprisingly comfortable. I totally forgot I was wearing them until we stopped. They honestly felt like I was wearing trainers, I’d maybe goes as far to say slippers they were that comfy. Its not everyday you find a pair of pretty, affordable boots that are actually comfortable is it?

Day two I felt kinda chic, minimalist, feminine and Parisian all at once. This outfit is for sure going to be repeated… many times.

Day Three

The final day of a trip I always make sure I’ve got an outfit I feel good in as well as comfortable because I always try to pack in as much as possible. I never want to miss anything and in case I need to hurry – as I’ve spent too much time wandering and less time getting ready to leave – I always wear trainers.

I decided to pack two pairs of jeans and thankfully I did, as my outfit would’ve looked very similar to day one.

So with the last day being about feeling good I opted for my favourite jeans and shoes and my new green glittery cropped jumper. The jumper is again one of those pieces I can pair with so many things, I may have to get the other colour.

There you have it, my three Parisian daytime outfits. Although I don’t pack like most, I always manage to enjoy my outfits and I definetly did this trip.

For city breaks I always pack something for comfort, something chic and always something a bit fun. Those boots are seriously a new favourite pair in my wardrobe.

What is your go to city break outfit?
