What to wear in May-Paris and Normandy

I am planning to go to Paris and Normandy during the first 2 weeks of May. I've checked the average temps during this time (64 degrees the average high, 47 average low. Any suggestions as to what to wear?

Normal1983,

Layers. Coordinate. Bring an umbrella and sunglasses. A pair of comfortable walking shoes.

Do a search on the board for "what to wear in paris" -- there are hundreds of threads.

I have ckd on the different threads but so many deal with either the summer or the winter. May is before summer but not as cold as winter. So I'm a bit confused as to what would work.

I was both places same time of '05, and I took a black cashmere twin set that I wore a lot under my raincoat. I was glad to have gloves for the D Day Beach tour. Layering, as Toupary says, is the key. I think I used my umbrella more than my sunglasses! It may have been 64 while we were in Paris but I don't think it was that warm in Normandy.

My 3/4 length raincoat had a hood, and that was great when it was misty but not enough precip to bother with umbrella.

We went to Paris and Normandy the middle two weeks of last May. In Paris, it was sweater weather; but Normandy was rainy, and on the coast it was cold. If you have a raincoat with a zip-out lining, that would be perfect.
