Packing for 3 months

How does one pack clothing for 3 months in France going from early spring to early summer?

I don’t have a clue! This is what I’ve done and I suppose time will tell whether or not it has been successful …

πŸ‘Ÿ1. SHOES

  • A pair of low-heeled smart but comfy black boots (Froggy South Africa)
  • A pair of comfy black high wedges – sexy and practical (Crocs)
  • A pair of good clean walking shoes (Nike)
  • A pair of good dirty walking shoes (Nike)
  • Summer slip slops/ flip flops (Nike)
  • Bunny slippers – why not? We’ll be there for Easter πŸ˜‰

πŸ§₯2. EARLY SPRING

  • Four jackets. Two of which are long – because it’s important to cover my a*😜 (two waterproof & two down)
  • 3 long sleeve T’s and 3 jerseys (for layering)
  • 3 pairs of jeans
  • A thick scarf

πŸ‘—3. EARLY SUMMER

  • Beach towel, sarong, board shorts, two swimming costumes and a cap
  • Two summer dresses
  • 4 summer tops, 1 summer pants and two light jerseys

πŸ“š 7. BOOKS

  • Regional French foodie information/ recipe book
  • DK France travel guide

πŸ’ 8. GIFTS FOR OUR HOSTS

  • A notebook and set of 2 South African coasters with quotes by Nelson Mandela to leave at each of our 13 “gites” (self-catering accommodation) as parting gifts

… I’m wondering whether I need to take a wetsuits (I think so; the ocean is 10-13 degrees Celsius!) … and a hairdryer???

Any advice is welcome 🌸
