Minimalist Packing: Paris, France

Last weekend my mom and I went on a quick trip to Paris. Despite only being there for about 48 hours, we had an amazing, fun-filled time. Although I travel quite often, I still find myself consistently overpacking. Recently I’ve caught the minimalism bug, and I really want to work on packing less and more efficiently. To others, it probably looks as though I still pack wayyy too much, but trust me, I’ve made improvements. I’d love to make this a new series about my journey with minimalism. Just a little disclaimer though, I’m far from close to being a minimalist, I just want to document the progress I make.

To start my goal of “minimalist packing” I focused purely on the clothes I brought for this trip. I didn’t want to take any drastic steps, so I simply stopped packing extra outfits (which I often do in case of weather or simply because I like to have a few options).

Here’s what I wore on my trip to Paris!

Overall I think I packed well for this trip when it comes to clothing. On the other hand, I brought too much in my carry on bag for the flight, and a few extra objects I really didn’t need (such as a curling wand). Next trip I’d like to cut down on the number of HBA products I take and possibly create more of a capsule wardrobe so I can pack even lighter! 🙂

I hope you all had/are having an incredible summer!


Love, Liv
