I agonized quite a bit about what to pack for my trip. I wanted to be very chic, of course, and easy going. Of utmost importance for my European wardrobe were 3 things:
3. Mixing and Matching
I wanted to wear simple pieces and neutral colors that could be interchanged so that I could pack less for my trip. Additionally, I wanted to take one quality pair of boots and one quality pair of flats that could handle all the walking we would potentially do. The weather also played a part, since it would differ in every city that we planned to visit, so I needed to be able to dress for warmer or cooler weather. The result, it seems, was lots of stripes, interspersed with pops of color. Here's a sampling of what I wore.

I very rarely wear flats so I feel like a look a little weird in these photos...I'm so short! But I still think the outfits came out fairly well, so... bygones.
