Here is a sneak peak at what I’m bringing on my trip to Europe. I’ll be gone for two weeks and traveling between three countries (Paris, Amsterdam & London). My main objective was to pack pieces that are light and versatile. A good rule of thumb is If it can’t be worn at least two different ways then you don’t need it.
My backpack is for electronics and toiletries. The luggage is for clothes and shoes and the duffel bag has my camera bag. While I could have fit everything in my carry on I would have had no room for things I may pick up during my travels so I decided to bring a duffel bag as well.
As far as clothing and shoes here is my list:
– 1 down-filled jacket
– 1 rain coat
– 3 pairs of shoes
– 3 neutral scarves
– 5 pairs of socks and 5 pairs of underwear (these items are easy to wash in the sink or your hotel or apartment)
– 3 sweaters
– One white blouse
– 2 pairs of skinny jeans
– 1 pair of black leggings
– 2 long sleeve cotton shirts
– 1 crazy cat shirt (because I can!)
– 1 cotton dress
– 1 skirt
– 2 shoulder bags
Honestly, I could get by with less but I figure I can be a little indulgent.
