Essentials: Backpacking in Style

I will be backpacking through Europe this time next month, so I have done quite a bit of research on how to pack in just one bag. I like to say I am "backpacking in style," so I've tried to choose travel accessories which have a cute factor to them, while also being useful. Here are some of my essentials:

Backpack $79.97 - Be sure to choose one that is comfortable and isn't going to be too heavy. This one is fairly small but my 5'3" frame can't handle anything bigger.

Passport Cover $15.00 - Protect your important document with a cute passport cover!

Water Bottle $15.00 - You'll need to stay hydrated while site-seeing.

Travel Umbrella $14.99 - In case of rain, keep this slim umbrella handy.

Foldable Toiletry Bag $29.99 - This bag is has lot of compartments to keep your toiletries organized.

Makeup Bag $9.99 - I love this makeup bag because it has two separate zippered compartments for easy organization.

Laundry Bag $4.99 - To keep your dirty clothes separate from everything else in your bag.

Rain Jacket $65.00 - Choose one that you can fold up in your bag when you don't need it, but make sure it has a hood.


  1. You are brave to backpack through Europe.I don't think that I could manage. Love all your gear and it's so important to do the research on stuff before you buy them. The passport cover is adorable. Have fun on your trip.



    1. Thanks Agi! It's going to be an adventure for sure!

  2. awesome! I don't think I could backpack either...you ARE brave!! haha :D

    1. We'll see how well I do...but I'm sure I'll be so excited while I'm there that I'll forget that I'm living out of a backpack :)

  3. You'll be the chicest backpacker yet. :) What places are you most excited to see? I'm so pumped for you- what an adventure!


    1. Thanks Ashley :) I can't even pick what I'm most excited about seeing- going to the beach in Greece, nutella crepes in Paris, getting a manicure at WAH nails in London... I am so pumped about all of it!

  4. I travel whit one backpack in the trunk of my car, a ballerina flats, makeup, a clean jeans and a t-shirt... so if I have a little accident I can be "restored", but I must confess it isn't so fashionable as yours!
    I'm sad you didn't visit Spain, is so beautifull and we have beach too ;)
