Fantasy Getaway Weekend Challenge: Paris!
|A personal photo I took on the metro during early Spring in Paris|
So the challenge is to pick a travel destination (for me, it's Paris, obviously ^^) and see if I can find at least 10 items I'd need on my Fantasy Getaway from yoox.com. BTW, use the EXCLUSIVE ShopSense code SHOPSENSE15 for a 15% discount and free shipping! Promotion applies to full price items only. **
I found what I was looking for and so much more! Being a smart packer is what I LOVE to do...it's like a game I play by myself: Travel somewhere for weeks and bring only a carry on + purse and see how many different looks I can have on my trip!
Found this glorious huge Longchamp leather bag with strap that doubles as a carry-on. We're gonna stuff this silly!
|Big Longchamp Bag to stuff!|
With any of these below items, I can mix & match for day + night + dates + museums + cafes + tour spots + parks + special events...
Add a statement necklace with any of these--or for something an it bit different--statement earrings! See below.
Now that we're done with the wardrobe part, let's move on to TRAVEL ESSENTIALS!
I also found the perfect real leather jacket (made in Italy, heeey) that I'd wear to the airport with leggings and a cotton dress or tunic top + scarf.
|Real leather jacket, made in Italy. Wear it with everything!|
|Just a little pop of color goes a long way!|
And you know that it rains a lot in Paris, right? It's so beautiful when it rains. That also means it's a bonus to have a waterproof + chic bag that you can wear with everything!
|Useful for holding travel essentials & then you can take it out for day/night use! Waterproof, so you're good to go when you get the delightfully-romantic Parisian rain! Plus, you can just wipe off any coffee or wine spills, & I think it does come with that scarf! So chic!|
|Gotta keep track of the metro times somehow!|
RED Valentino zippy wallet--absolument PARFAIT for holding your Euro coins + metro card!
These glorious and gorgeous shiny flats go with EVERYTHING! They'd probably even be the only shoes I'd need to the airport + on the whole trip!
|You're gonna do a LOT of walking in Paris, and trust me: You'll want your feet to be comfy! These metallic moccasins by Rochas are made of LAMBSKIN, so you can be sure your feet will be as comfy as ever. Plus, you can easily dress them up or down! Very versatile. |
But in the case that you'd also like your cute, little toes to breathe, I've always loved strappy sandals. Put a little twist on it with a fun color, like metallic blue! It's bold, fun, spunky, but still muted enough to goes with everything.
|No doubt you'll be getting compliments on this fun twist on the gladiator style|
And a twist on the classic black heel. Never underestimate the power of skin peeping through some lace cutout leather! ;D
|Sexy lace cutout leather heels|
And always carry some extra accessories to bling up your style...a statement necklace, stack of bangles, unique rings, hats, hair accessories, or even a gorgeous pair of gem earrings (like these ones from Lizzie Fortunato) can drastically bring your look to that next level.
|People now have statement necklaces covered, but what about reliable statement earrings?!|

Honorary mentions of items that would be chic and useful traveling to Paris
|Moschino small bag that you can pull out of the big one to use everyday|
Appropriately-named COMME des GARÇONS
wallet/coin purse...useful for those Euro coins!
And this beautiful bag below is an affordable, Spring take that fits TONS + market goods from Monoprix or open air markets and that necessary umbrella you'd always carry around in Paris!
|Calvin Klein Jeans HUMUNGO shopper tote + attached wallet/coin purse! Doesn't it just sing happiness + Spring? It's like that song..."I love Paris in the Springtimeee!" This purse would definitely be useful doubling as a carry on + bag you take to the market because it's SO HUGE. That's what I do with my Louis Vuitton Neverfull (similar style), only this price tag of $85 for the Calvin Klein Springy version means that you can put all that extra money saved into that detachable zip wallet/coin purse/clutch!|
