How to Pack for Springtime in Paris: Navy and White, with Green

This was the A Femme d'un Certain Age on April 16th 2012, so the garments probably are no longer available. (but I'm pretty sure you can still customize a Longchamp tote on their website)  This is a big year for green and navy - I saw it everywhere in department stores in Chicago - so this look could be easily replicated if you fall in love.

  3. I understand it all when I see the capsules! But I still don't get it when I do my own packing - my last effort ended up Grey and Navy, with shades of... grey and blue (blue-grey, even ....etc). I haven't quite 'got' the application of the accent colours bit yet.... :-(

  4. How great that you are so mindful of your addicted blogsters as to send these Packing for Paris capsules so faithfully even while you are on anniversary holiday! Hope you are having a fabulous time.

  5. I concur with all the previous posts. Navy and Kelly green is on my list for tomorrow, and all your pairings are as chic as they were two years ago. Timeless chic?

  6. Hi Janice, Hope you had a lovely time in Paris, I was there two weeks previous to you, but thanks to your "pins" I had no trouble whatsoever with my five day capsule wardrobe. Absolutely loving the green and navy theme, beautiful, green is a wonderful colour and goes with everything as my nan used to say! You never see a flower of any colour that does'nt have green with it! Can you do a set for Nice in October? Never been to the cote D'Azure before, I would be very interested in your take on it. Best wishes Susan.

    1. Susan - we are going to Nice/Antibes for the last week of April - then on to visit family in London, Belfast and Wales!! Try putting all that in a carry on! However, thanks to Janice decided on navy/grey/lavender theme - for France if warm am just going to have a short denim navy skirt and navy cotton cropped pants and have added navy sandals, which, with a selection of tops and a couple of cotton cardigans should be ok. Have laundry in the flat we've rented which will help. Jeans, warmer navy and grey pants and cashmere sweaters for the rest - wool jacket and rain jacket too so if it is colder than it is at present there I've got outfits for all kinds of weather. Hope that helps your planning. Sandra

  9. Some lovely choices here, which I can almost replicate from my existing wardrobe - I just need to find a scarf like the Hermès one!

  11. Janice so glad I found your blog…. I am taking a 19 day trip to Paris and Italy in June with my daughter and am having trouble paring down my wardrobe to a somewhat smallish bag… Question - why do you bring such a large handbag…. Don't you find it heavy for lugging around when touring Paris? One thing I do try to keep small is my handbag to avoid being an easy target to thieves and for comfort while walking around….. Alison
