Sometimes when packing for a destination that includes a change of climate, it’s hard to wrap your head around exactly how hot or cold the change will be. This is just what I experienced when packing for Paris this April. Already in the 80’s here in Houston, it was hard to imagine just how chilly 50 degrees during the day would be. So coming from the warm Houston weather, I assumed that bare legs would be fine during the day. After all, it was a spring 50 degrees, not a fall 50 degrees, right? Well, I was so wrong!
Thank goodness that I threw a couple pairs of leggings and tights in my suitcase at the last minute, because my bare legs would have frozen off if I didn’t have them to add another layer. While in the fashion capital of the world, I felt inspired and confident enough to layer black leggings under this pink skirt for a cool Parisian vibe that also kept me from becoming a human Popsicle. So next time you’re packing for a trip, don’t forget to throw a couple of extra warm layers in your suitcase…just in case!
