I think you may have guessed already, but obviously the suitcase in the video is my brand new Jurni. I’ve now taken it with me on trips to Paris and Amsterdam, by bus, plane and train and needless to say I love using it.

Paris Packing List
Unless you’re French, or have parents who are French, you’re not going to even come close to the chic Parisian look. No matter how hard you try.
So there are a few items in this Paris packing list that represent me trying too hard, and a few items that come from trying so hard I get frustrated to the point of not giving a sh*t.
At the end of the day wear what makes you feel comfortable and screw anyone who says otherwise.
Paris Packing List: Outfits
Literally the easiest way you can try and pull off the local look in Paris is in black jeans. Not that I look local in my cropped djellaba but then I love this jumper too much to not wear it1 I get all my jeans from New Look and these are their Black Supersoft Super Skinny Jeans (£19.99). The blue camisole is the Blue Ring Back Layered Cami from New Look (£12.99) and the Cropped Djellaba is a boutique item from the fabulously talented Moroccan fashion designer and photographer Dounia who runs Talisman in Taghazout, Morocco. The boots are my favourite leather boots from New Look but they no longer sell them (I’ve had them a few years) so I’d suggest the Black Ride Boots from Schuh (£59.99).
I am so excited for Spring, especially Spring and Summer in Paris! These are my favourite light chinos but I can’t remember where I bough them (!) so check out the Maria Crepe Cropped Pocket Trouser from Boohoo (£15). The white camisole is the Ivory White Crepe Cami from Primark (£4.00) and over that I’m wearing a cropped jumper from River Island which unfortunately they don’t sell anymore so instead I’d suggest this gorgeous Blue Life Cozy Cowl Crop Jumper from Asos (£62.00)
I’m in love with these pants and this oversized tee! The pants are the Navy Filigree Print Trousers from Primark (£11.00) and the black tee is from an Amsterdam clothing company called Oost West Amsterdam. I got this item in sale so they’re now out of stock, but definitely check the rest of their tees (starting from €40.00). I love them because I used to live in Oost…
