How To Pack For A Month In Paris

How To Pack For A Month In Paris

We are spending June in Paris, and here’s what I am packing for the month and summer season. The weather can always be unpredictable in Paris so I will be packing layers and a mix between spring and summer essentials.

We are staying in an apartment with a washer and dryer which will help. However, I have never been one to pack light for a trip to Paris, even when it’s just for a week.

Some people pack a carry-on suitcase and that would be it. I’ve learned what type of packer I am over the years, and I take more than necessary probably.

The Weather

The weather in Paris during June is mostly warm, with average highs of 62 during the day and average lows of 55 during the evenings. However, it can still be chilly in the early mornings or at night.

Typically, there isn’t much rain during June, which makes it a nice time to visit the city. However, you can always pack an umbrella just in case.

Personally, Paris always seems a bit cooler to me, and maybe because it’s right by the river. However, it’s Paris, so the weather can always change instantly, and there could be a few muggy days when you also need an umbrella.

You want to pack layers for Paris even though it’s during the summer months. I always pack camis and extra T-shirts for Paris in case I need to layer. A light jacket such as a trench or leather jacket is a good idea to keep you warm and dry especially if you tend to get cold easily.

Packing Tips For Packing For A Month In Paris

Here are the tips I use for any trip to Paris during any season.

Plan Outfits

I like to have my outfits somewhat planned out before any trip to Paris. Usually, I will take a day or two and try pieces together to see what will work.

Then, I always take a photo of my outfit and put it into an album on my phone. This way I can go back and refer to the photo if I can’t remember what my outfits are.

Stick To A Neutral Color Palette

As with any trip I take to Paris, I always stick with neutral pieces. This way I can easily mix and match my clothing items and provide maximum versatility. Having a neutral color palette, also makes it easy to layer pieces.

For this trip, I am packing a lot of navy and white, in a combination of tops and dresses. I also have some black and camel-colored items.

Use Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are a great way to stay organized when packing and unpacking. I use packing cubes for each person along with these space-saving bags.

Usually, I pack my cubes by clothing pieces: all shirts go in a cube, all pants go in a cube, etc. Some people pack their cubes according to their daily outfits. It’s whatever helps you stay organized the most.

I also roll my clothes because it helps prevent wrinkles. However, this is what I have always done.

I use two types of packing cubes the most: those from AWAY, which match my suitcase and carry-on bag, and those from Amazon, which are cheap and work great.

Toiletries

Usually, I will pack all travel-size toiletries. However, for the month in Paris, we are going to buy all our toiletries when we get there.

There’s a French pharmacy near our apartment and we are just going to buy what we need for the month. Then at the end of the month, we will just discard what we don’t use. This way we don’t have to worry about packing any heavy toiletries.

I will also be taking items from my travel essentials list like my hair dryer, travel steamer, straightener, luggage scale, portable charger, and of course adapters.

Random Items I am Packing

Other random things I am packing are my vitamins (Omega 3, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Probiotics) in this case for the month. I also want my silk pillowcase for the month so I am bringing that as well.

For our apartment, we want our BOSE speaker. For picnics, I am bringing a blanket, wine opener, and a picnic bag.
