Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 6.52.32 AMGuess what? I am arriving in Paris wrinkle-free! Well, at least my clothes are, due to my “package packing” method. It’s summer time in Paris! Finally an excuse to break out the color. For whatever reason, women freak at the thought of packing for Paris. Figuring out what to wear can be the most stressful part of the trip, non? Make it easy on yourselves ladies and stick to basics. Below is my packing list and a short video showing you how to pack like a champ so your clothes come out wrinkle-free as well as how to fit everything into one suitcase and a carry-on bag.

Priscilla’s Summer Time Paris Packing List:

Capri pants – (1) white, (1) black, (1) khaki

Dress pants – one pair of black long trousers

Jeans – (1) skinny pair jeans, (1) pair straight leg jean

White blouses – (1) long casual, (1) tailored short sleeve, (1) peplum long sleeve, (1) eyelet long sleeve

Tanks – (3) white, (1) black

Short sleeve fitted shirts – (1) coral, (1) pink, (1) bright blue

Shoes – (1) red, (3) black – sandal, flat, heel (2) neutral – sandal, flat

Scarves – (3) one long, one short, one Hermès “twilly”

Lightweight Jacket – (1) rain repellent, (1) nighttime dinner

Belts – black, brown – various sizes

Foldable duffel bag – to pack dirty clothes in so new purchases can be placed in regular luggage

Pickpocket proof purse – for use during the day mostly when in crowded tourist areas

Skeptical that all this can fit in a small piece of luggage and a carry-on? Watch the video below to see how easily this can be accomplished.

Happy packing!

Which Pick Pocket proof purse do you use? I am going to Paris in 6 weeks and am looking to make a purchase. Thanks for sharing your love for Paris!

Hi Laura,
I have not forgotten about you! I have to find my receipt for the latest pick pocket proof purse I purchased because I can’t remember the name. But, I also love Baggalini’s too! I used one for years, but this trip opted for a design that could convert from day to evening and look nice for both.
I will get back to you asap.

Hi Laura,

I found the bag that I used on this trip to Paris in July. It is called the Ellington Annie Hobo bag and it cost $69.00. I bought it in black, but I see online it is now in teal or a purple/pinkish color. Here’s the link:
