Ladies, especially you frequent European travellers, I need your kind assistance. Hubby and I are making our very first Paris sojourn early in May! Here's what I'd planned on taking that I hope would get me through 8 days and provide me with appropriate wear for shopping, sightseeing, shopping, dining (some fancy), shopping, and hanging out in cafés watching le monde pass by : 2 pair dark denim jeans (wear one for travel) 1 pair black jeans 1 pair black tailored, lined trousers 1 black pencil skirt 1 dressy 3/4 sleeve jacket (plum) 2 silk short-sleeve black sweaters (wear one for travel) 1 silk/satin dressy top, sleeveless 1 black t-shirt 1 black cotton blouse 1 charcoal gray cardigan (wear for travel) 2 pair black walking shoes (1 loafer, 1 patent ballet flat) 1 pair black peau de soie 3" classic pumps Black Ferragamo Marisa bag Black Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Longchamp Le Pliage medium shoulder tote I figured I'd probably pick up some scarves and maybe a jacket or two while I'm there. From what I've read, temperatures average mid 60's to low 70's this time of year, and I tend to get cold easily, hence the sweaters. What do you experienced Paris travellers think? Too much? Too little? Is there something crucial I'm overlooking? Do I need a pants suit for dressier venues or will a skirt and nice jacket work? I thought I'd stick with primarily a black palette because it doesn't show dirt/stains. I'm looking for a realistic minimum here. Help!!!! Thanks so much for any input/ideas.
