Yesterday we shared where to stay, eat, and go while on honeymoon in Paris. And today it’s all about what to wear!
Paris might be the most romantic city in the world, but it’s also the most chic!
Our fashion-maven Bené Eaton, gives us her guide to smart packing for Paris, so you’ll be strolling by the Seine in style…
Ever since my first trip to Paris 5 years ago, I have been trying to find any excuse to get myself back.
Paris is the one place on earth where I can just feel the romance in the air. It has a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will.
How could you not fall madly in love amongst the savory food, the decadent sweets (crepes and macaroons, anyone?), the cobblestone streets, the tiny sidewalk cafés, and of course, the most incredible art museums. A dream honeymoon (le sigh).
Naturally, I have a little Paris packing list in my back pocket—should the stars align for me to find myself back in the beautiful City of Light.
For Paris, I am all about travel must-haves that are feminine and flirty, but ever so chic. (After all, Paris is the home of haute couture fashion.)
See the essentials at the top of my list. But fair warning, you may pick up the Paris travel bug.

How darling are those heart-shaped lock earrings? They remind me of the “love locks” that adorn some of the bridges in Paris.
