Spring Break!!! Being a student abroad, Paris spring break is not the same. Universities get off earlier and the weather still feels like winter. Growing up spring break was supposed to be a trip to Miami to get sun on the beach and have fun with close friends. Here in Paris it is a completely different story. During spring break most students try to pack as many countries they can into a two-week break. From Germany to Africa, you cannot pack the same as if you went to Miami. Berlin is sunny but cool; Dublin is a rainy windstorm, while Naples is in the sixties. So what do you pack?
First thing first, you need to know the weather of the cities you are visiting. You do not want to be stuck in the rain without an umbrella. Then, what are you going to do while you are way? Are you going climbing or clubbing? Next, think simple. Choose neutral colors so that you can easily mix and match. For these next two weeks I personally do not like to go over the top. Simple black jeggings and black top can easily be worn to dinner or to drinks. Layering can also provide extra clothing without carrying a suitcase. Finally, make-up! You do not need much to go out. Some mascara, eyeliner, foundation, and lipstick are all you need. Take red lipstick and make a nice cat eye, simple classic look done in only a few minutes.
