Shoes and clothes for Paris and Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

I know this has been discussed ad nauseum here in this forum. However, I still have questions and invite only those who enjoy such conversation to contribute. I don't need any comments saying that everyone wears whatever they want and nobody cares.

My questions are: we are going for 2 weeks and plan to walk a lot (of course). How many pairs of shoes should I bring? I am planning on packing my Merrell walking sandals, a pair of Birkenstock Madrid Slide Birko-Flor, and I am considering taking a pair of dressier shoes by Spring Step. I am debating whether I should bring a pair of running shoes. I am also debating whether I should leave one of the more casual shoes, most likely Birkenstocks.

In terms of clothes, I was thinking of bringing some of my skinny jeans, but if it is hot, then I am debating whether I should bring my new Athleta skirt that looks very American. I am also not sure if I could get away wearing some nice black yoga pants and dress them up with a nicer top. What do you think? I remember seeing a thread where someone said "absolutely no yoga pants, unless you are doing yoga in Paris."

Plus, I am meeting some relatives in Paris who I haven't seen in years. I would like to look nice and presentable, not like a slob, because the reports will go back to other relatives.

Any thoughts?
