Spain & France MUST haves

I definitely took this picture on a sunny day in Paris.
Yes, I'm creepy.
The French often wear many layers of neutral colored, sometimes baggy clothing. Rain comes often, so it is better to have layers to shed throughout the day, than to wear less and freeze. My top suggestion would be any clothing made of wool, because it does not absorb as much wool as other fabrics.  While I was there, it became more humid as the days went on.  But personally, I would much rather carry my cardigan around all day than be cold and wet.  Another observation I noticed, Parisians typically wear plain clothing.  I believe this is not just a coincidence, but if you look at it in their perspective it makes sense to buy clothing that do not clash.  If you have to wear two sweaters on top of your clothing if sure outfits are hard to match if patterns clash.

  In my experience, it was HOT everyday I was in Spain. I was even warm on the coolest day there in just a tunic.  The weather made me want to spend everyday on the beach in Barcelona.  The less clothing, the better. Although, people who live there are accustom to the heat, and could wear jeans, or anything they wanted in 90 degree weather.  It was nice to see summer clothing I was more interested in.  I may not have dug into my crop top collection if it weren't for the fact that the locals were comfortable showing some skin. In a city with bikini optional beaches, no one seemed to care if your shorts were a little cheeky. I would suggest light, flowy clothing for Summers in Spain, or you might melt
