When I was raiding my already packed away winter wardrobe in search for the lightest and effortlessly chic outfits, I look no further to my Fashionista folder. I have collected hundreds of Street Chic pictures that inspire my day to day outfits. Because it’s still warm in Melbourne, I cannot imagine the windy and wet weather in Paris. So I consulted these when I selected my luggage wardrobe. I like to travel light and usually just pack a capsule wardrobe, to be honest usually my capsule wardrobe is still the size of a bit luggage case which most cannot swallow. But I’m going to Paris Fashion Week! I have to dress up! I have to have some freedom and variety! I don’t like to pre-plan outfits because I am extremely fond of changing my mind. I remember that I used to surprise friends on the day of every formal, ball, wedding (I stuck to my white dress but the reception dress was a last minute change as well), party and dinner that I’ve been to. I always change my outfit in the last minute.
So without further ado, below are some of my favourite winter looks right now which have inspired me to select my luggage wardrobe.
I am bringing my own Country Road slouchy pants and some booties.
I will be bring my black and white tweed Zara jacket. I absolutely adore this outfit. So ladylike.
I will be wearing plenty of black and opaque tights. Recently I got a really cute pair with little dots from Alannah Hill. I will be trotting around in them!
I will wear a long scarf and try to find this lady’s leather pants. They are killers!
I will bring some 80s inspired belts and wool dresses.
I will pose in front of gorgeous doors and bring a warm coat.
I will bring my black full skirt.
I will bring a voluminous dress and my slouchy leather jacket.
I remember commenting on this picture with ‘gorgeous but committed shoe sin’. She’s ruined the look with ugly Converses! But flats are a staple and I hope I brought some along to walk around all the shops in.
I will be bringing some patterned tights and a fur scarf. This chic rocks. I love everything she’s wearing.
I hope I brought the right mix. I’ll post daily outfits when I return! Hope the weather’s good in Melbourne! Happy birthday to my bestie Lisa!
