packing for europe

Next week I'm off to Italy, Switzerland, and a tiny bit of France with my mom and sister.  It has definitely creeped up on me and I'm no where near ready so I decided to put together a packing plan.  I actually told my sister my plan was to pack everything to fit into a carryon size (wishful thinking) so that there would be plenty of space remaining in my full size luggage to bring back finds!  Last year I was impressed that I was able to get everything down to one suitcase...and I still didn't wear everything!  So my idea isn't completely out there?!?!  Ive stuck with neutrals that can easily mix and match with a few spring colors mixed in.  Also the fascinator....I need opinions on this one.  While in Italy we're actually attending a wedding and I kind of want to wear one.  I know that this is technically a brit thing, but I feel this may be my only chance to channel my inner Kate?!  Too much?

I worked with mainly things I already own and a few I'm hoping to have time to pick up this week!

1 sunglasses // 2 earrings (similar) // 3 pocket dress // 4 jersey dress // 5 lace dress
16 pink stone necklace // 17 textured moto jacket // 18 plunge swimsuit (I bought this a few months ago and love's on sale for $20!) // 19 fascinator // 20 nude clutch // 21 rockstud flats
22 earrings // 23 sneakers // 24 classic flap // 25 nude flats // 26 nude pumps


  1. Where are you going in Italy and France? Sounds amazing. We went last year and I decided I was going to pack just a carry on and wear all black. Not as stylish as all of your picks.

  2. this looks great! filing away for when I need these packing tips :)

  3. I think your outfits look great!

    Your upcoming trip sounds fun! When I went to the UK earlier this month, I had the same idea to fit all my clothing in my carry-on so my checked luggage would be empty for shopping! It worked!

  4. These pieces are amazing! What a great trip you have planned! You should 100% wear/get a fascinator! When in Rome! ;) safe travels!

  5. Love your picks! When I was in high school, I went to Europe for a month with my family. We each had one bookbag, and it surprisingly worked well. You are going to have an amazing time. :)

  6. Such a lovely packing list, we love the versatility and the easy mix and match!
