Packing for Italy

I’m a terrible packer and always without fail overpack.  I knew I didn’t want to check a bag for this trip so I squeezed 10 days of clothes into this tiny (but awesome – honestly can’t recommend it enough) suitcase.  I somehow managed by sticking to light sundresses, neutral sandals, and a variety of accessories.  Here are a few of the items I packed.  I hope you have a great weekend!

    I actually think you deserve a packing medal for fitting everything in your carry on! That’s seriously impressive!

    I totally get you, Kat! I’d rather overpack than underpack! I love that suitcase! I just recently nabbed a fun one from them too! ;)

    So jealous of this trip! It’s sure to be amazing. Packing light is so difficult, but makes it so much easier once you get there.

    Good job fitting it all into a carry on! I actually always pack a carry on now because I used to go to Italy all the time when I was dating someone from there and my bag was lost twice! It was also severely damaged another two times!

    I haven’t been to Italy in years now, but I am positive you will have an amazing time! Beautiful picks. It will be so hot right now that sundresses are definitely the way to go!

    I would really appreciate it if you would check out my new blog post featuring one of my favorite jewelry companies. They employ artisans from all over the world to help reduce poverty in those communities. I am trying to get them some additional support, so please check it out! Thanks!
