I have spent the past three weeks traveling in Europe. First to London, then on a trip to Berlin, Hamburg and Amsterdam. It has been a blast but a hot, sweaty blast. A heatwave has consumed us and made me realize how inadequate some of my packing (3 pairs of jeans?!) was. If I could do it over again, here are my summer travel essentials.
I already owned this tank top from Cos (in 3 colors!) and I bought the shorts below to go with. I rolled them up and added flat sandals and simple gold jewelry. Perfect casual summer look.
Flat sandals like these are a must. Perfect for walking around or just lounging on the terrace with a glass of vino.
I always pack a swimsuit like this bikini from Eberjey. Always. Even in winter. You never know if there are hot tubs, saunas, etc. Along with a wine bottle opener this is one of my true travel essentials.
I purchased this travel kit from Aesop and I am in love with the scents. Everything smells amazing! I can’t wait to go by their store in Paris to try their perfume. If it smells even half as good as the products I’m buying it!
A light-weight, jersey summer dress (or 3) is the last of my summer travel essentials. A good summer dress is the easiest way to look pulled together in the heat. Add flat sandals like the ones above and gold jewelry and you are good to go. Promise.
