There’s just a few more days until my 16 year-old daughter and I head to Paris to celebrate her birthday. Aubrey turned 16 last month and got a big surprise in this box – an itinerary and tickets for a mother/daughter trip to Paris and London. Read the original post to hear more about it, it’s a dream come true for both of us.
Well, spring break is (finally) almost here and we’ll be heading out in a few days. As promised, I’ve put together my actual packing list for our trip. We’ll be doing lots of sightseeing, shopping and walking, plus taking a day trip to London. (P.S. Thanks to ALL of you for the incredible travel tips in the original post!) The forecast is looking awesome for this time of the year – upper 50’s and plenty of sunshine.
Believe it or not, I did almost no shopping for this trip. All of these outfit basics were already in my closet thanks to doing GYPO Style Challenges this past year. I don’t just put these style challenges together, I live by them too. Casual outfits are all that we’ll need since we won’t be dressing up for anything. I’ll also be packing jewelry (long and short necklaces, earrings and a watch), an umbrella, a tote bag, a cross body bag and rain gear.
If you like this packing list, be sure to pin it. Although this packing list is for Paris and a day trip to London, it would also work for a fall or spring trip to other destinations like NYC and Chicago. This only includes seven days’ worth of outfits but I’m confident you could put together two weeks or more just from these pieces.
