This is the only checklist you'll need when packing for a European getaway.
Who cares about winter in Australia when its arrival signals the best time of year worldwide: European summer. The dates are set and your flights are booked, you've updated your luggage (because you need to nail that Insta-shot at the airport) and you're on track to smashing your fitness goals courtesy of F45. The only thing left to do now is figure out what to pack (read: buy before you go).
From cute summer dresses and tan sandals to all white outfits, luxe swimwear and this season's most coveted cross-body bag, here is the ultimate list for fashion girl's going on vacay.
Getting the bag right is an important one. It needs to be big enough to fit the everyday essentials but small enough to work as a clutch after dark. Consider: phone, financials, sunglasses and lip balm.
Euro vacay equals round-the-clock walking. Finding comfortable footwear that you can wear all day long is imperative to a good solid day of touristing. Buy them a few weeks before you're travel date so you can wear them in.
After hours heels
Dinners and dates, a cheeky disco dance session; pack a pair of high heels that will go with anything.
Sneakers to cruise in
If you're into the adventurous side of travel (read: getting off the beaten track) sneakers are mandatory. And if not, they're still something to fit into your luggage for comfy cruise-wear all day long.
Pack a few pairs of cute shorts you can alternate between on hot days. Find options that will work with most tops; denim cutoffs, linen shorts and white options work well.
When there's so much to do and so little time, having a couple of wear-everywhere tops will come in handy. Heading straight from day-time activities to dinner to out will save you time to focus on the fun!
Trousers you can up-style
Culottes and wide leg pants are a dream on vacation. Worn with crop tops or t-shirts, you can quickly switch flats to heels and transform the outfit altogether.
Dress x 3
Multiple dresses are needed on a European getaway. Day dresses, maxi dresses, short dresses or playsuits will keep your outfit choice easy each day.
Pack your bags, baby. We're coming in hot!
