Paris Capsule Wardrobe For Petites

  1. Laura says:

    Instead of bringing all that cashmere, shop at Crimson Cashmere in the 8th! Linda Wright is the best!😊

  2. Lisa says:

    I love your choices Kelly! Those Converse kicks are so quirky, but in the best way.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Lisa, Aren’t those cute? They are a collaboration between Converse and Comme Des Garçons. Thanks so much for stopping by today! xo Kelly

  3. Vanessa says:

    I’m decidedly not petite, but love your combinations and can certainly riff off of the concepts. Great choices for Paris! Have fun!

  4. Susan says:

    Or for really cute, reasonably priced cotton or blend button up shirts, go to Coton Doux. In the 3rd and the 4th, other shops too. Such cute shirts! I personally would bring my Nordy or J Crew cashmere. I like your outfits, were it me, in one carryon, a pair of shoes and a jacket would have to go. To make room for shopping!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      You read my mind with the carry on, Susan! Plenty of room to spare for shopping! Thank you for stopping by today! xo Kelly

  5. Jane says:

    The combinations are beautiful but at 5’-8” none of clothing works for us taller gals. Nice inspiration though.
    Are you planning to fit everything in a carry on suitcase?

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Jane, Most (if not all) the clothing I link to in this post comes in regular sizing as well as petites. I am planning to check one bag and have one carry on. Thanks for stopping by! xo Kelly

  6. Carlene says:

    You might want to reconsider the number of outerwear layers you’re bringing. I just got back and did the same as you and found I could have done with just the trench, leather jacket and sweater blazer. Have a great trip!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Carlene, sounds like you hit the weather just right! As of now the forecast is for high 50s with off and on rain showers. Thanks for the tip! xo Kelly

  7. Heather Mayes says:

    Lots of cute outfits, Kelly. Have fun on your vacation in Paris!

  8. Nancy says:

    Cute outfits; styling is great! I don’t know if you said how long you’re going for, but I recently took a trip for 6 days and only took 4 pairs of pants, and that number includes pants that I wore on the plane, and I couldn’t stand that I had to wear a pair twice, but I didn’t want to overpack! Looks like you have it down to a science!
    Have a wonderful time! I’m sure you and Beth will take pictures of your outfits to post upon your return! Hope so!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Nancy, I expect to wear the jeans twice, which doesn’t bother me, but I also might throw in a pencil skirt, just for fun. We will have a lot of pictures to share when we return! Thanks for stopping by! xo Kelly

  9. Duchesse says:

    You don’t say how long you are staying or whether you have access to laundry facilities, but IMO, and I go to Paris regularly in the fall, you have way more than you need! (Though everything looks great!) You only need one piece of outerwear, the trench or the black quilted jacket. (You are unlikely to be walking in pouring rain will have an umbrella.) Some women take all kinds of clothes but I go for 3 weeks with one carryon. As long as you are not attending formal events, you really only need 3 days’ worth of clothes. No one knows if you are wearing the same outfit on Day 3 as Day 5. Amusez-vous bien!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Duchesse, We are only going for 7 days and since it’s my first trip to the City of Light, I am excited to have outfit options. Normally I am a carry on kind of packer, but for international travel, I am all too happy to check one bag. Thank you for sharing, it sounds like you are an experienced traveler and I appreciate your insight. xo Kelly

  10. Cher says:

    Lots of good choices. I went to Paris about this time several years ago and froze!!!! Seems like 50 degrees in Paris feels like 40! We all had to buy a few wool sweaters and gloves! Yes gloves it was so cold. Our last:night boat ride on the Seine was miserable! Well as miserable as Paris can be! Just really cold.And rainy. I suggest a puffer coat that can be smushed for packing. Ditch the moto jacket as it’s heavy and takes up space. Add some water repellant booties that are good for walking. And your umbrella!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Cher, you’re right; a damp cold feels way colder than a temperature alone would suggest. Thanks for your tips! xo Kelly
