The Right... Pieces That Move Me

Following up to my quick life updated on Monday, I am so excited to share details on my next travel adventure: I'll be spending 9 days in France in April.  If you've been following me long enough, you know I went to Paris, Florence and Milan a little over two years ago.  I'm so excited to go back to France, I can hardly contain myself.  I'll be spending a few days in Paris, running the Paris Marathon and exploring a few things I didn't see the first time, and then heading to the South of France (Nice, specifically) for the remainder of the week. I'm using Nice as my base for the week and plan to adventure around so if you have any suggestions (things to see/do, places I must eat at, etc.) send them my way!

In true Tracy fashion, I've been working on my packing list for quite some time now.  My goal is to travel as light as possible (which will be a little tough considering I need to pack all my marathon gear!) so I can do some shopping while I'm there.  I did some pretty light shopping buying souvenirs last time I was in Europe but my goal this time is to actually spend some money on myself.  I also want to travel as light as possible because I've gotten quite used to only packing a carry on (even for trips home in the winter!).  I fly standby a lot and carrying on is really the only way to go.  




My travel outfit lists usually include versatile pieces that I can dress up or down or mix and match to get the most wear without having to pack different outfits for every single day.  I was so excited when Banana Republic asked me to participate in their "What Moves Us" campaign.  I'd say two of the biggest things that move me include versatile wardrobe pieces and experiencing new things by traveling to new places. 



Versatile wardrobe pieces, like this amazing shirt dress, are great for traveling and also great to take from desk (with a blazer and heels) to weekend (with a scarf and flats).  It'll definitely be making it into my suit case.  And I can't forget about these ballet flats because I know they'll be super necessary while I run around France for the week.
