Trip Report Paris May 23, 2013. What should I wear in Paris?

Jump to last reply

Today you should wear pretty much everything you brought, and you may need to buy some more.

The temperature is 52F, winds about 15 with higher gusts. Hard rain showers interspersed with bright sun. Tomorrow will be a little cooler -- high 40's -- with more rain. Sunday will be about the same as today with little or no rain. it is a pattern.

I wore tropical wool trousers, long-sleeve shirt, a cashmere sweater I just happened to throw in the bag at the last minute, and my LL Bean goretex parka. I was not too warm. My wife was similarly dressed but added gloves. Umbrellas blowing inside out everywhere in Montparnasse. But maybe it will wash some of the pollen out of the air. People are standing in the parks hacking away. Moi aussi!

Miserable? Pas de tout! We had a great day in the 19th, 11th, and 10th, but this is the kind of thing that makes me sorry for people who plan for every minute. A walk in the Tuileries might be no joy, whereas Buttes Chaumont was fine (bigger trees!)

More later!
