If you've been reading this blog for a while you know by now that Paris is not one of my usual weekend destinations (i.e the continuous loop Helsinki-London-Helsinki with some Barcelona occasionally thrown into the mix...). So, there has to be a reason why I suddenly find myself in Paris. And there is: Professor M had a conference in France, and couldn't get away until Saturday. Thus, I flew to Paris to so that we could spend the rest of the weekend together. And it was great to see a little bit of Paris, too, as it's been a really long time since my last visit.

What? No Planning-What-To-Wear-To-Paris post before the trip???
So, what did I pack?
As you can see, I wore my trusty, old trench (it was raining all Sunday) and good walking shoes. I also packed two pairs of trousers, 3 short-sleeved T-shirts, 2 long-sleeved T-shirts, one cardigan, a jersey dress, 2 scarves, 2 pairs of sunglasses, an umbrella, a small handbag and a tote bag (yes, it all fits in the cabin luggage). I didn't wear everything, but that's OK as I like to have some options. It was a bit too chilly for a dress, so I ended up wearing trousers, a T-shirt and the trench all the time.
Uncharacteristically for me, I didn't even wear any jewellery, except for a bracelet and my wedding ring. It is liberating to make do with a minimalist wardrobe every now and then...
