NOTE about this collage: if you get one thing, you need the pack of wet ones. They are the best wipes ever and I use them for countless things such as disinfecting AND getting stains out of clothes.
I was sitting here thinking about what all I wanted to pack for Italy in November and I started brainstorming and here we are! I’ve actually been to Europe in late December before, but hopefully mid-November will be a little warmer and less gloomy, especially more south in Italy. When we were in England last December it was wet, gloomy, and freezing. Layering was key and I packed all kinds of scarves, sweater dresses, flat booties, and hats. I think this time around I am going to take more plain sweater dresses, lots more fanny packs (they are my jam) and some leather jackets since it won’t be so cold that you would need a heavy coat. And I always say that I can get things there if I need them. I actually love the European Zaras and H&M stores and feel like they have way more of a selection than ours in the states.
This is actually an example of my year-round travel outfit – leggings or black jeans, an oversized t-shirt, some sort of jacket or heavy cardigan and golden goose sneakers. Obviously I wouldn’t wear the Lenny Kravitz scarf right now but later in November I will definitely be packing ole’ Lenny.
I love wearing something like this on a long flight because I can essentially just shed of the jacket, scarf, and shoes and put on my cozy socks with my travel blanket and boom- it’s bedtime! Not really, I actually can’t sleep on long flights, but at least I’m cozy and don’t feel like I’m in uncomfortable clothes for 8 hours.
Here is an example of a dress I would take on a fall Euro trip- this super basic and comfy Target mockneck dress is easy to wear and you can layer it with so many things. You can dress it up or down and it really doesn’t wrinkle that bad at all. I am rocking the fanny pack here because when I travel I love being hands free – it really does make all the difference.
NOTE about this collage: don’t leave home without the non-drowsy Dramamine if you are taking any trains at all in Europe. I learned very quickly that I get motion sickness from trains and this cheap and easy all-natural medication has saved my tail on more than one occasion. Also, this noise machine is key because it’s portable and travel sized. You just NEVER know where your room will end up in a hotel and we’ve had many times where our room overlooks a loud and noisy side of the street or a bar where people are loud until 4 am. This little white noise machine drowns out the sounds and makes it easier to sleep.

NOTES about this collage: I always get one of these RFID passport holders/wallets just in case because that’s the last thing I need on a trip is for someone to steal my credit card numbers or identity. Also, just go ahead and buy this travel curling iron because I have ruined one too many nice curling irons even with using a proper converter because of some issue with the voltage of the irons that we use in the states. This curling iron is specifically made for European travel and I actually really like the curls it gives, so much so that I use it at home a lot of the time.

NOTES about this collage: Have you ever had a long day of walking where you get back to the hotel and you feel like it isn’t humanly possible to do it all again the next day? Enter SALONPAS – just trust me and take these little pain relieving patches with you and you can put them on sore areas at night for instant relief. Also, make sure you have packed some sort of Emergen-C or Black Elderberry so you can keep your immune system up while you’re on the go and traveling.
