Paris Chic Essentials List
The countdown is until I embark on my Paris River Cruise.  For the last year, I’ve dreamed of this European getaway on the Seine River.  Now, it comes down to my Paris chic essentials list, of what to pack and how not to overpack.

European River cruises continue to be a top vacation destination for Americans according to AAA travel.  For me, it was a no-brainer to experience to glide along the Seine River to view city buildings and landmarks.

We choose AMA Waterways over the favored (and more well-known) Viking River Cruise because of it’s smaller, more intimate atmosphere of less than 200 adult people.

Location: Hunt Valley, Maryland Light Rail Train Station. Wearing: J.Crew Long Navy Wool Belted Vest, Target Who What Wear Perfect Crew, J.Crew Rayner jean, Marc Fisher "Jayla" Block Heel Navy Suede Bootie with 2ChicDesigns Calf-Hair Clutch.

We also preferred the all-inclusive rates. Accommodations, all meals, snacks and daily excursions, Wi-Fi, onboard entertainment, and transfers between cities are included.  The cruise has few added costs.

The must-see stops include:
♦  Normandy beaches
♦  Eiffel Tower
♦  Monet’s Home and Gardens in Giverny
♦  Honfleur, a picturesque port
♦  Notre Dame Cathedral

One week before the trip, I will lay out 8-9 outfits on my bed to make sure I have the appropriate accessories, a color-theme to mix and match and sensible shoes.  I will work with my Paris chic essentials list for an outfit just the Eiffel Tower.

When traveling to some place chic, how do you work out your wardrobe?  Please do share.

Have a fabulous and stylish week.

    • Cynthia,
      Hi! Thanks for stopping by The Age of Grace. Finally, after of year of thinking about our River Cruise, less than two weeks to see my favorite monument, the Eiffel Tower.

    Hello! Your trip sounds amazing & I hope u have a wonderful time! I am loving every inch of yer outfit here, u look fabulous! My two cents for yer travel wardrobe is stick to basic capsule mode with color & choices but be sure to throw in a few extra scarves cuz they won’t weigh down yer luggage but it’ll give u some new looks to the basics & add some warmth and color to the wardrobe. Have a super trip, Bye, Cathy C.

    • Cathy,
      Hi! Thank you for stopping by The Age of Grace. I appreciate your suggestion about adding scarves that won’t add weight to my suitcase. I need all the help I can get so not to overpack.
