Packing for Italy

Packing for Italy

Sometimes I like to put together a collage of what I’d like to wear/pack for trips! I love sharing them with you all so you can have other ways to be inspired 🙂

This is a list of the necessities that I’ll be packing for my trip next week-it’s going to be cold!! And of course, you don’t have to be traveling to wear these! They all are perfect to wear for Fall and transitioning into Winter!

I always liked to travel light and pack clothes that can provide me with versatile looks. I mean, who doesn’t though, right?

The most important tips I use for what clothes to pack are:

Neutrals & Solids. This helps with mix-matching

Pack at least 2 of each…flats, heels, coats, pants, etc.

Having a minimalist style for your trips definitely makes it easier for packing lightly! I’ll be mixing old fashionable basics like the leather pants and a camel coat, with the latest culottes and midi lengths trends.

Since it will be below 50, I’ll definitely be bringing the faux furs! What’s nice about furs is that it really doesn’t matter how little you’re wearing underneath! It keeps you completely comfortable and warm while you’re walking outside and allows you to stay comfortable when you take it off in the, more-than-likely, toasty places you’ll be spending the majority of your time in (ex:restaurants, museums, etc).

This will be more of a laid back trip since we are tagging along with my in-laws so I’ll be excited to post more for the blog and instagram while I’m there!

If you need more packing tips, check out this post from my last trip to Italy! Or if you have any questions or recommendations, I always love hearing from you 🙂

    Can you recommend what to pack for Charleston? Ha ha! I am going there weekend after next and yes I have been there before, but what would you suggest I wear for dinners out, shopping and exploring/touring? I live in Lexington SC so I would assume the weather is still pretty warm, and I won’t get to wear any fab Fall pieces yet. I am very much into the minimalist style as well so the less I can pack (but the more versatile) the better. Hope you have fun in Italy! Luuuckyyy!

      Absolutely! Not sure I’ll have one up before your trip, so I’ll just tell you my suggestions until then 🙂 And I am originally from Lexington too! The weather is pretty close to perfect usually in November and it has been this past week. I’m obsessed with these sandals from Forever 21. I’m hoping they get them back in black so I can get a back up! Perfect for dressing up, but comfortable/safe for the cobblestone streets! Honestly, I don’t see much of what I wear down here, but I do see a variety. You can’t go wrong with what you bring! Definitely check out my past post for Fall and Winter here and that should help you decide on what to bring-Minimalist never go out of style 🙂 Hope that helps! And thank you so much!

        Oh, cool! I didn’t know you were a fellow Lexington lady! Thanks for the suggestion, and I will definitely be looking at your past posts for inspiration. Those heels are perfect, not too high for walking in. I will have to visit our F21 store before I leave to see if they have them or something similar. Love your recent day-to-night post, that is a perfect idea for my trip! You definitely don’t see much of the minimalist style down here in SC, that’s for sure. I really wish South Carolinians would step up their style game, haha! Thanks for your help!

    Love the collage idea for packing trips and love the style you went with 🙂 I always way over-pack for trips so I’m having to learn how to tone it down while still being able to make cute outfits.
