How to Pack for Quebec City

How to Pack for Quebec City November 27, 20161 Comment

Copywriter, communicator, and unrelenting nomophobe. I'm obsessed with French expressions, English puns, and packing the perfect carry-on.

Ah Quebec City, the historic and charming capital of my home province. I was actually born on the south shore of Quebec City, but I only lived there until age two and definitely consider Montreal my home.

The Premise

This weekend was my nephew Ben’s 5th birthday. He’s a hilarious little guy who loves orange, is always willing to help, and is just getting into Lego in a big way. I don’t think I’ve ever been to one of Ben’s birthday parties, because he’s always lived in a different city. Now that he’s only a 3-hour drive away, I decided it would be a fun quick trip to make.

The Capsule

For this short trip, I just wanted to be cozy. I chose a wool knit pencil skirt and a matching merino sweater. The coziest twin set ever. For the next day, I brought a similar sweater, but in camel. I paired that with my winter parka and some sturdy but stylish boots, and voilà, my weekend look. Pourquoi faire compliqué lorsqu’on peut faire simple!

If you get the chance to go to Quebec City before the Holidays, be sure to check out Le marché de Noël Allemand – a typical German market created by the German community of Quebec City. I ate sauerkraut, pretzels, swiss melts, sugar doughnuts and drank mulled wine.
