Heading there at start of May. Have few nice dresses & bits bought but want a nice look for during day. Will have dc with me & will be doing lots of walking. I bought bronze Superga for my feet. Was thinking skinny chinos? Also would this metalic zatchel be too matchy with the supergas, should I just go for brown?
Any advice would be brilliant!

Yes definitely too matchy IMO andnot very Parisian, if that matters.

I'd avoid anything too try-hard and go for simple stylishness. Skinnies and/or chinos with a selection of tops plus a nice scarf and necklace /s and trench or stylish parka should cover most of the bases in my experience. Maybe with a dress if it looks like it's going to be warm.

Khaki parka
Fitted breton style tops
Slim jeans or chinos
Colourful skinny belt and silk scarf
Supergas and ballet flats
Simple black dress for venturing out to dinner
Tan or brown leather bag

Have a great time!!

Yup - almost exactly what I took last time I went a few weeks ago!
