How to pack for Europe!

How to pack a carry on for Europe vacation! // traveling tips from Like The Yogurt

We're a day away from heading out to Italy and I wanted to share with you guys a quick guide to my packing habits for our European adventures! (Well, you can really use this for anytime your traveling!)

The biggest tip for traveling is to only bring a carry on..
 1. Less to carry
 2. Don't have to worry about airports loosing your luggage!
 3. You don't have to wait at baggage claim :D

1. Picking Your Luggage -. Make sure it meets the measurements that your flight requires. We went with this one! Tip: Try not to get anything too nice or that attracts attention. Don't need anyone stealing your stuff or the expensive luggage piece for that matter (Louis Vuitton, Hartman, Etc)

2. Travel Size - Check the airports requirements/ 3-1-1 rules for liquids. Make sure all your toiletries are travel size/ under 3.04 fl oz and pack them in a clear bag.

3. Mix and Match - This really helps prevent you from bringing more than you need. Pick out key pieces (in trend and weather appropriate) that you can switch up and wear at least another day or 2. *Roll not fold!

4- Shoes - I decided that I would only pick 3 pairs of shoes (which still is a lot to me!). One pair of sandals (my tan birkenstocks), one pair of heels for the evenings (like these), and a pair of closed toe flats that are comfy and appropriate for the sacred places you visit.

5- List - I always find that it's helpful making list…for everything! Same thing applies to packing. Make a list for outfits, what you still need to buy for the trip, toiletries, etc.

Tips for your Trip!

T-target // skort - forever 21 // metallic oxfords - forever 21 // quilted bag - target // watch - daniel wellington // sunglasses - ebay

So is the white after labor day thing still a rule or has it been forgotten about? I still felt somewhat guilty after wearing it, but I'm kinda liking white in the Fall! (I just got giddy saying Fall lol) 

 And these futuristic silver oxfords I thought I'd never be able to watch anything with, have been warming up to me lately! Yes, I buy things I could live without and not have any clue at first what to wear it with :/ They definitely get looks here in Charleston, but I don't care-I LOVE THEM! 

What do you guys think of this look?!
