Summer Fridays have officially kicked off, and that means summer’s official start (June 21) is right around the corner. Who else is counting down the days? Cue the beachside picnics, the poolside hangouts, the backyard barbecues, and the trips—yep, so many travel plans are calling your name. If you’ve been saving up all your vacation days for the warm-weather season, now’s officially the time to book and start perfecting that itinerary.
If you’re not quite sure where to fly to this time of year, consider looking into a European getaway. There are so many great places to visit, and getting from one country to the other is actually fairly cheap. Dreamt of seeing the Eiffel Tower? Or how about the Pantheon? You and do all that and more without spending more than $1000.
Now, figuring out where to go and what to see is already stressful enough, so we decided to help you out with your summer packing list for Europe. We've covered all the clothing you should bring, the toiletries you can't leave the States without, and the miscellaneous items that are sure to be serious travel game changers. Read on to see and shop our essentials below. Happy traveling.
When it comes to packing for a European adventure, you'll want to make sure to bring along interchangeable vacation classics, like easy, breezy dresses, skirts, jeans, and tees. Plan your outfits ahead of time to avoid overpacking, too. See our must-haves below.
Shoes are bulky, which means they take up a lot of space in your suitcase. So, narrow down your footwear picks to a select few, including fun beach sandals, good walking sneakers, and a few elegant picks, like heels and flats, for a fancy night on the town. We've got you covered with our shoe selection, below.
Your beauty bag is just as important as everything else. Some things you'll definitely want to bring along for your European trip? Sunscreen is a must because it's more important than ever to protect yourself from those harsh UV rays, some good summertime hair products, and jet-lag fighting essentials (because we all know how traveling can take a toll on our skin.)
For those beachy waves, look no further than Sachajuan's texturizing spray.
