Packing for Europe in a Carry On!

Follow these simple steps and you really can enjoy a week or so touring your favorite European capitals with just a carry on bag.

Your first "must have" is a packable waterproof jacket. This crinkle shimmer from  www.travelsmith.com rolls up neatly in your suitcase and is stylish enough that it doesn't just have to be saved for rainy days.

Don't leave home without it... at least three pieces of travel wear from www.symplithebest.com. Choose a neutral or black and you can mix and match these pieces with the following pieces to create many different looks. I also love leggings from Sympli and wear them on overnight airplane flights because they are as comfy as pajamas.

Add a hand knitted sweater from www.skifo.com so that you can layer when cool breezes arise. Since it is the bulkiest item, don't plan to pack it, instead  wear it with leggings on the airplane.

Straight front jeans and a white shirt from www.loft.com work wonders as they mix perfectly with the Sympli pieces and look great with any Skif sweater. 

These Naso Metal sandals by www.naot.com fit the bill for a comfortable walking shoe. The metallic leather dresses up or down and can be worn with any color. Comfort is key, and the low wedge is easier to wear than a completely flat shoe.

Every packing list must include one splurge. If you are lucky enough to be trying out a few Michelin starred restaurants, you might want to kick it up a notch with this pair of Pod sandals from www.robertclergerie.com. The soles of these shoes are like none other. You will feel like you are walking on air.

Last, but not least, one of my Endicott necklaces is the perfect casual chic accessory for all of the above. Comes wrapped in tissue in our logo travel pouch for safe travels! Visit www.myrnahalpern.com/shop/endicott-necklace.
