Travel Style: September Europe Outfits
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently spent a wonderful couple of weeks in Europe on a much-needed vacation. This was a trip I originally planned for summer 2020, rescheduled of course, and it felt incredible to be able to rebook and finally go this September. My itinerary included one week in the Greek islands split between Santorini, Paros, and Mykonos, then a week in Croatia between Dubrovnik and Split, and final three days in Venice before flying back home to Seattle. September is my favorite time to be in Europe, because the weather is still pleasant but the summer crowds are gone. Today I am sharing what I packed and wore for this trip, knowing that we would still have summer weather in Greece but cooler fall weather in Croatia and Italy. I own this Tumi 19" International Carry-On in silver and everything I am sharing with you today fit in that bag along with three swimsuits, my makeup, and a flat iron. Please continue reading to learn what I packed, what I wore, and what I learned that will influence how I pack for the next trip.
Finally, let's talk about cooler weather layers. When I was packing for the trip, the forecast for Croatia and Venice was still quite warm during the day (upper 70's), so I only took one pair of white wide leg pants that I wore on the plane. By the time I got to Croatia and Venice, however, the weather turned and temperature highs were in the upper 60's and low 70's with evening winds and chill. I probably should have expected that, being late September, but I adapted by going to the Zara in Split and picking up a maxi skirt and a second pair of pants. Layering these new pieces with my existing sweaters, tees, and denim jacket kept me comfortable during the second half of my trip.
Now that you have seen what I packed for a two week trip in Europe, how do you pack for a trip of two weeks or more? Do you pack light or check luggage? Please leave me a comment below to let me know. Thank you for visiting my blog today, and I hope you have a great week ahead!
