I am going to France this week with my husband for a quick trip. We will be in Paris on Thursday, supposed to be 93F! I want to see the Luxembourg gardens if it's not too hot. We will go to Mont St.Michel and Bayeux and D-day beaches for the next two days. The high there will be around 86 F. I want to pack light (this is hard for me) but be prepared.
I love to wear shorts and tank tops but assume that is a no no in France. Would a skort be okay or does it fall under the "shorts" category? Should I wear capri's or skirts instead? I read that you shouldn't show your shoulders or knees when visiting a cathedral. How about a sleeveless shirt with a collar like I wear for golfing? What about sun dresses? Do they need to have sleeves or is sleeveless okay? I can carry a light sweater or wrap to cover my shoulders if necessary. Which is more important, having my knees covered or my shoulders?? In America the dress code is quite relaxed.
I also read a forum on walking shoes. Are sandals okay? I read that flip flops are not a good choice and I agree for safety sake but I have FitFlops and they are amazing! I can walk in them all day.
I welcome any advice.
