Summer Abroad Packing List


For months before I went abroad for the summer, I was constantly thinking about what I was going to bring. I had heard so many mixed reviews on weather, I had to bring something for every occasion. Since I have been here I have been super happy with what I brought. I am not backpacking so I had enough room for a lot of clothes. Although I wanted to bring everything with me, I had to narrow it down to 50lb suitcase. Many girls have asked me what to bring so I thought I would make a SUMMER EUROPE PACKING LIST.

  • Light dresses

It is so hot in Europe; the last thing you want to be wearing is tight clothes. Flowy dresses are super ideal, light to pack and can be worn for more than one type of event.


  • Two pairs of shorts

Of course, you have to bring one pair of denim jean shorts, they go with just about everything and are super comfortable. I also brought a pair of white cut offs that I wore when I got tired of wearing the blue ones.

  • Jean Jacket

This was the most important thing I brought with me. I wear it pretty much every day, and can also dress it up at night. I bought a few more jackets with me, but never really wear them.

  • Comfortable Shoes

This might be assumed, but bring the most comfortable shoes that you own. In Europe, you do so much walking and cannot afford to wear a pair of shoes that will hurt your feet. I have two pairs of Adidas cloud foam shoes that I LOVE. They are so comfortable and look good with all of my outfits. Really recommend getting these exact shoes.

  • Going Out Clothes

So the thing about Europe is that people kind of wear the same thing out as they do during the day. I packed way to much stuff to wear out. Bring a few tops that you can mix and match with a skirt or black jeans.

  • Jeans

I’m in Europe over the summer so I never really wear them, but I brought two pairs of jeans. One pair of Levi boyfriend jeans and one pack of high wasted black jeans. I have worn both of them a few times but defiantly could have gone without them. If you are here anytime other than the summer, I for sure recommend bringing them, but right now it’s so hot they weren’t necessary.
