Packing for Provence


Traveling Light 
in Provence next week!

If you are like me, you detest lugging heavy bags around 
(although truth be known I usually do!) 
... this year I am paring down 
my packing to a few basics. I am sure to find wonderful things
in Provence if I find I "need" something new to wear! I'm
not even bringing many toiletries since I love to stock up
at the French pharmacies à la Gwyneth Paltrow's list...
I'll probably add a rain jacket and warmer scarf and
possibly wear short boots on the flight since this 
spring is a little cooler than usual...
here is what I am bringing: 

1.  My collection of colorful cotton Provençal scarves
2. Eileen Fisher Oval Dress can wear with anything at all, so comfortable
3.  J. Crew Minnie Pant in black bi-stretch, the best pant in the world for traveling
4. Anthropologie Stone & Cloth blue chambray shirt to use also as light jacket
Levi's jeans jacket in a great stretchy denim
6.  Teva Pasas Mary Janes, incredibly comfortable walking sandals
 J.Jill black linen dress, looks great over crop leggings, too
8.  Rainbow leather flip flops, cannot leave town without them
James Perse v-neck white T ... of course a staple!

the most important item of all..
Kipling's cross body messenger...
cannot say enough great things about
this incredibly light and sturdy bag


  1. I'm so excited for you and your group~ I wish I were a flea along for the ride! And I agree, pack light and support the French economy ;)

  2. Andrea of course your baskets are also coming with me! You have to come next time xoxo

  3. Kit you are an inspiration to me! I try to pack light; it IS a challenge!
    I know Andrea provides lovely basket gifts, he is the best! So are you Kit.
    I wish I could go with you....
