As you must know by now because I never shut up about it, Melly (my younger sister) and I are heading to Europe in exactly one week! Our trip begins in Greece, covers all the big spots in Italy (Milan – my friend is doing a law internship there!, Florence, Venice, Naples, Capri, and Rome), hits Paris (doing the most romantic city on the planet with my sister seems fitting), breezes through Edinburgh, and ends in Dublin (for my sister’s 22nd birthday. Trouble will ensue).
Anyway, as if planning the whole trip wasn’t stressful enough, I’m now working on what to pack. We’re staying in a lot of hotels and apartments with washers and dryers, so I plan on doing a lot of laundry in an effort to reduce the amount of clothing I bring.
I need to have room to bring more back. Duh. I definitely plan on bringing everything I’ve included in this post, along with an old blazer and a few other sun dresses. In terms of jewelry, I think I’m just bringing my watch, my monogram necklace, and pearl earrings so I don’t have to worry about losing anything. Do you have any other recommendations?
