I’m Sneaking In One More Vacation and Packing These 30 Items

I don’t know about you, but to me, it feels like summer is slipping away faster and faster. I can’t believe that August is almost gone. I’m a huge fan of summer and summer clothes, so I’m a little bummed out that it’s coming to an end, but fall in New York City is something to be excited about. We still have a few weeks left of summer, and I will be spending my last couple days of August traveling to London, Positano, and Lisbon.

I had to squeeze in one more vacation before the end of the season. Plus, one of my friends is getting married in Lisbon, and a few of my friends will also be in attendance, so I have decided to make a mini European summer getaway out of it. This, of course, has taken tons of look planning. Since it’s my first time traveling to Europe, I had to make sure every outfit I planned was a 10/10. I love to style myself and put looks together, so this was definitely a labor of love. I even made a PowerPoint presentation of everything I had on my itinerary along with what look I’ll be wearing to each place. Yes, to some, maybe the PowerPoint is a bit much, but to me, it’s just enough, and pro-tip: It helps you not overpack. 

As I mentioned, I made sure my European looks were ones that turn heads, and of course, I’ll be bringing along my holy-grail beauty products as well. Keep scrolling to see which looks and beauty products will be traveling with me.

This Charo Ruiz set is so good. 

Getting in as many all-white outfits as I can before summer is over.

I have this swimsuit in white, and I can’t wait to wear it in Italy.

 I love the dainty vibes of this bikini.

This glow balm makes your skin look so glowy, bronzed, and dreamy, but fair warning: While it makes my skin look unreal, it is a little bit on the messy side.

Every time I go on a trip, I need a wow piece. This jumpsuit is definitely it.

A showstopping one-piece is a must-pack. 

I’ll be wearing these sunnies in every city I travel to.
