I’m back from Europe, so I thought I’d dedicate a post to share what I wore. The most exciting news, besides my cousin’s beautiful wedding and having amazing food in Italy, was that I traveled to Europe with a carry on!!! I’m so proud of myself. I can NOT believe I traveled to Europe with only a carry on, but before this trip I decided to ONLY travel with CARRY ON, specifically CALPAK’s rose gold AMBEUR 20-INCH ROLLING SPINNER CARRY-ON. (Shout out to Calpak for gifting such a beauty!😍), because I’ve paid way too many overweight fees and have too many embarrassing luggage experiences – I’ve dragged heavy suitcases down 2 blocks of a Manhattan sidewalk and I’ve gotten stuck in a stairwell in London – all because my suitcases were too big and I always thing I need an extra pair of shoes or jeans – just to name a few. So, to say the least, I am DONE embarrassing myself with hoarding clothes when I travel. I want to prove a fashion lover doesn’t have to over pack.
I hate to admit this, but I’ve NEVER traveled anywhere with only a carry on. I have a bad habit of bringing a lot of clothes when and wherever I travel – I always think, “Well, this shoe looks good with this outfit, but I might want to wear this other heel, so I’ll bring both and decide then.” But, that is so so wrong, because one to three pairs of shoes is plenty!! So, long story short, when packing for any trip, take the time to EDIT EDIT EDIT. I kept shoes and sunglasses options to a minimum, used an amazing toiletries bag, that kept ALL my toiletries, and embraced dresses for once! I shared all my tips in my carry on packing on my Youtube channel!
