Packing for Three Days in Budapest, Vienna, and Salzburg

Since arriving in Florence, I have purchased three things, which might sound like a lot for only 3 weeks, but the end of the season sales are incredible here. I also knew before I left that I would probably need these items and wanted to purchase them in Florence (again the sales!). 

I bought the most amazing pair of black leather boots from my favorite fancy shoe store. They look just like the 50/50 Stuart Weitzman boots everyone's been wearing this winter, except they were under 100 euro! I also purchased a black coat. I probably could have gotten away with just my navy coat (I don't mind mixing black and navy), but I found a gorgeous and chic wool-cashmere black coat at Max and Co. for half price and it was just too beautiful not to purchase. Finally, I treated myself to some pink cashmere lined leather gloves just off the Ponte Vecchio. I have learned the hard way that unlined gloves do very little!

All of these items will be traveling with me this weekend on a whirlwind three-day trip to Budapest, Vienna, and Salzburg! This trip will be a blur, but it will also give me a taste of three new cities. While I would love to have a week in every place I want to visit, that just isn't feasible. So sometimes short trips are essential for deciding what places are worth more of your time.

Here is what I am packing for this long weekend:

I am traveling with my friend Anna's travel company, FlorenceForFun, to take photos for their promotional materials (and because it's an incredible perk of your best friend owning a travel company). I am so excited to try out my new camera lens in some gorgeous new cities. I promise to give a full review/recap of each city when I return. Until then you can follow my adventures in real time on Instagram!

Bacio Bacio!

  1. Have fun on your mini trip, excited to see you rock these looks!

  2. Sounds like fun! Whirlwind trips are great every now and then; I feel a little bit glamorous when I'm jet-setting all over the place (is that weird?!)

    Sweet Spontaneity

  3. Have a wonderful time on your little trip. You live such a charmed life, thanks for letting us have a peek into it.

  4. I love your packing list posts! Any trips planned to Paris? Maybe this can help:
