Delurked: the Leith pants -- I wear a Medium and am 5'7". Love the pockets, the luxurious feel of pant next to my skin and a forgiving waist for sitting for long hours on the plane. Debated on leggings but I always feel constricted in them. I want to be ready for chilly and be able to also lose a layer if need be. I also want to get off the plane and not look too casual.
Angie: the shoes are all road-tested. Tried on so many styles that were not keepers. Have long and narrow AA feet, particularly narrow heels so a shoe can fit everywhere else but not in the heels. The Frye might be better in the heel but have a tricky toe at the moment that needs room to breathe. The clothes have all been tried on and worn. I will do another try-on, however, before deciding. The handbag I like for its functionality but not so much its color. But I wanted it not to stick out and call attn to itself. Theft is alive and well. Two of my friends were both approached, aggressively in public, this year in Paris, one losing her purse as it was jerked from her and the other hit her assailant with her purse and didn't lose it. Will attach an image. More tops? I have more in my closet . . . .
Toban: We will be doing museums, cathedrals, browsing the neighborhoods, going to Les Chartres, street markets, cafes, etc. So a lot of walking though we are not immune to taxi's and fortunately my daughter in law knows Paris well as she's lived there and knows the metro system. Good to know about scarves--I will pack fewer for sure. The outerwear has me stymied a bit because I don't want to pack a backpack to carry a topper in and it will be too warm during the day to wear toppers like cardi's all the time. I might be able to roll a cardi in my handbag. Most days we won't be close enough to our flat to return for evening wear. Staying at the edge of the 7th district and 15th.
SarahD8: definitely can leave behind one of those black pants if not two! and maybe one of those dresses too! Thank you. Helpful.
