We leave for a trip of a lifetime in exactly 2 weeks, but I started outfit planning like a year ago haha, kinda kidding, kinda not!
Coming up with your own Europe packing checklist can be a bit overwhelming, especially because I am notorious for being an over-packer. In an attempt to have room in my suitcase for fun souvenirs, I am vowing to stick to somewhat of a capsule wardrobe. This actually might be the most prepared I have ever been when packing for a vacation. By writing this blog post it has really allowed me to dig in on how I can mix and match pieces from my closet!
The Best Europe Packing Checklist:
Everything you’ll Need for your Trip
- Comfy, but cute sneakers
- Block Heel
- Crossbody Purse

- Cutoffs (depending on temps)
- Denim Skirt

- Leather Jacket
- Chambray Shirt
- White Tee
- Black Tee
- Striped Shirt
- Lace Cami
EUROPE PACKING CHECKLIST: A NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE
By sticking to a neutral color palette, you will be able to better mix and match pieces to make different outfits from your wardrobe. Pieces that are white, chambray, olive green or black will allow you to easily mix and match!
EUROPE PACKING CHECKLIST: ACCESSORIES
Pack accessories such as a bandana, sunnies, and a cute hat to help bring some fun to the simple pieces you packed.
A COMFY, BUT CUTE SNEAKER
When traveling to Europe, it’s inevitable that you will be walking A LOT. You want to choose one that will look great with jeans, but can also be worn with dresses and skirts.
CONSIDER A RULE OF 3
When making your Europe packing checklist, think of a rule of 3. What are three different ways you could wear the item while on your trip. You may want to be casual during the day when walking around doing touristy things, but then at night you may want to be dressier for a nice dinner.
