yesterday, i shared my five must-have travel wardrobe staples and my goal to pack light for europe. read it here if you missed the post. today, it’s all about my black and white europe capsule wardrobe. and a few items that make it into my carry-on. don’t ever pack anything other than clothes and toiletries in your checked luggage; anything of value is kept close. for this trip, i splurged and purchased a new marc jacobs floral print sport tote. it’s polyurethane and easily wiped down. it has two sets of handles – long and short – and a zipper. since my wardrobe color palette is black and white, i went for a pop of color and pattern with my handbag. an elegant michael kors wallet with a flip lock flap closure keeps me organized. this is what typically finds its way inside my travel tote. passports kindle iPhone headphones portable charger lint roller mints water a survival kit for the long airplane ride is a must. this is what i carry at all times, wherever I go. advil hand sanitizer lip balm zzzQuil melatonin gummies, tide bleach pen shout eye drops hand and face wipes not shown is a travel first aid kit with band-aids, antiseptic wipes, and gauze pads. gingham raincoat (similar here)| black blazer | denim jacket three jackets made the grade. with rain, in the forecast, a raincoat was a no-brainer. this gingham coat was lighter than a traditional trench, and it’s black and white. a blazer and denim jacket should get me by with temps in the seventies. plus, a blazer is perfect to wear to dinner in the evening. henley dress | denim shirtdress (similar here) two dresses were packed. the henley tee shirt dress is a dream to wear and looks cute with sneakers. the denim shirtdress flies solo with black booties but pulls double-duty as a duster over jeans. chinos| toothpick jeans| white denim pants get the most wear and tear on trips as they’re worn multiple times. dark rinse denim hides a multitude of travel sins. but i have a tide bleach pen in case the white denim falls on hard times. chinos are comfortable. and black pants? what more can we say about pants that go with everything? black pants floral maxi skirt| white corset skirt many of us would forego skirts. but i love to wear them especially when the temps heat up. this floral maxi skirt is lightweight, looks adorable, and will be perfect for evening. the white corset skirt looks fantastic with espadrilles or sneakers black tee sold out (similar here)| gray tee| white tee stripe tunic| polka dot ruffle| gingham camp shirt| chambray shirt the rule of thumb is two tops to one bottom. counting my tees i have nine. one more shirt can potentially make it into my suitcase. but i just might be fine with the blouses i’ve chosen. silk white ruffle| striped mock neck tee navy v-neck sweater| black cardigan sneakers| espadrilles| backless loafers| black booties| metallic sandals there may be one too many pairs of shoes for this trip. but i’m wearing the sneakers on the plane and mr. style might bail me out and pack one pair in his suitcase… all-in-all i think i’m ready to jet off to paris tomorrow night.
