I’m headed to Switzerland this September and I am SOOOO excited!! I went to Zurich once, only for a few hours, but this time we are spending more time in the country. We are going to be doing some light hiking in the Berner Oberland!
Now, I have checked the temperature averages and it seems it gets pretty cool there in the night time – I mean, we *are* staying in the Swiss Alps so of course it is going to be chilly.
I am going to be dressing in layers and also I have an outfit for hiking.

Fleece Pull-over – this Patagonia fleece pullover is so warm.. it will be perfect for walks in the evening and for hiking. We will be walking next to a glacier one of the days! I also have this North Face one.
Hats – Like I said, we are staying in the Alps and I get cold! I am loving these hats: Barefoot Dreams Slouch Beanie , embellished beanie , Fur Pom Ribbed Wool Beanie, and this cute Wool Beanie Hat With Bow.
Gloves – I don’t like cold fingers. I’m bringing gloves. These are cute Bow Glove . These Knitted Glove are a good deal. These Tech Gloves are for those who are glued to their phones – you can still wear them AND text on your phone!
Hiking Boots – Hiking boots are a must for hiking in the mountains. Regular tennis shoes just don’t have the same amount of grip or support in them. I bought these ones by Ahnu and I really want these ones by these ones by Danner .
This Plaid Fringe Scarf is a good deal.
Purse for Travel – I love either a cross body bag or a bag that folds down into nothing. This Crossbody Bag is super cute, this Crossbody Bag is a deal ($39!) as is this Crossbody Bag . I LOVE my little Longchamp Le Pliage Tote Bag.
Cardigans – Layering is key when dressing in the Spring and Fall in climates like Switzerland where it is chilly at night but nice in the day. Here are the cardigans I have my eyes on: Oversized Knitted Cardigan,Long-sleeved wool and cashmere knit cardigan, Lightweight V-Neck Cardigan, Drape Front Wool & Cashmere Cardigan.
Sunscreen – the glare on the mountains is strong and the elevation is higher. You will get sunburned if you aren’t careful, so I wear this Clinique Sunscreen.
Other Shoes – I love my Chloé ‘Flat – perfect for dressing up for dinner or walking around. I also bring an extra pair of tennis shoes – my Converse are my go to and Europeans always ask me where I got them!
Shirts – this basic V-Neck Tee is my go to. I LOVE wearing tunics – here are my favorites ones: Tunic – plain colors. Stripe Split Hem Tunic. This one is a little dressier: Long-SleeveTunic. Also I am loving plaid shirts this year, especially for the Fall. I like this ‘Ex Boyfriend Plaid’ Cotton Shirt , this Plaid Button Front Shirt, and this Plaid Tunic Shirt(only $44)!
A Dress – I am bringing a silk dress this year because one of the hotels we are staying at is a little fancy and you have to wear nicer clothes. I am choosing this Sleeveless Silk Shift Dress because it folds up small, is wrinkle resistant, and I can also wear leggings under if it I wanted. This Silk Crepe De Chine Shirt Dress is a nice pick too!
I am SO EXCITED to go to Switzerland! It seems to be so picturesque! I am hoping it doesn’t rain the whole time we are there! We are going to places like this…
