If all goes to plan, I’ll be arriving at Milan Malpensa Airport in exactly 30 days, where I’ll return 10 days later after I’ve sunned my way through the Italian Riviera—with stops in Santa Margherita Ligure, Camogli, and Portofino—and shopped my way through Milan. Everything’s booked for our time actually in Italy. All I have left to do beforehand is pack my suitcase, which is proving to be the most time-consuming aspect of the trip by far.
As much as I’d like to bring a trunk full of potential outfits, including accessories, shoes, and handbags for every possible occasion, between the plane and train rides, checked-baggage fees (not to mention risks), and the fact that my boyfriend is bringing nothing but a backpack (typical), I’ll have to do with just a carry-on. Luckily, I’ve become accustomed to packing light, even for long, international trips that involve multiple stops and a variety of different dress codes. So really, the only hard part is figuring out what sort of look I’ll be going for and which items will bring my vision to life.
Below, scroll through the items that I think will do the trick.
