Y’all. I’m home, and so thrilled to be back. Maybe you caught up with my travels on Instagram, but in case you missed it, I was in Europe for 10 days! You might not believe this, but, it’s true. I only took a carry on my trip!
I’m calling it a lesson learned.
I packed so many clothes for Paris two years ago and I didn’t even wear half of them. I ended up reaching for my trusty favorites to wear numerous times. So, this time around, I told myself I wasn’t making the same mistake twice and decided to pack light. I took only items that I could wear multiple ways and were easy to layer. And, the key, my friends was ROLLING MY CLOTHES and LINING THE BOTTOM OF THE CASE WITH SHOES.
Here’s what went!
Here are some of the “greatest hits” that you need in your closet (and suitcase)
Gosh, this was the hardest part. I honestly packed
I’ve linked the splurge and steals of all shoes below for you!
I kept it simple in this department, and honestly, I didn’t even wear all of what I packed.
I took my new tote bag as my personal item, containing these items.
If you haven’t used a Carry On Cocktail Kit yet, you MUST. And if you feel generous, they make great gifts. Is it too early to be talking about stocking stuffers?
CJ brought a small duffle in his bag in case we brought some treasures home, and of course, we did. I mean, I HAD to do a little bit of shopping, right? 🙂 I ended up checking this suitcase on the return trip and carried the duffle aboard. I am SO HAPPY I went this route. It made life so much easier.
Do you think you could travel for 10 days with just a carry-on?
Have you done it already?

Ha ha! Thanks, Natasha!
I am so impressed you were able to pack this all into a carry-on for 10 days in Europe! Even when I pair down it’s hard not to travel with a checked bag.
It was really hard, but I ended up wearing everything in my suitcase! I hate when I pack things and never even take them out. xo
I’m packing now. Using this as a guide. Thanks! 🙂
I love that you shared this! I’m trying to figure out how to pack a carry on for a 2 day trip to New York. I usually end up checking a bag to avoid stress, haha! Have any recommendations for suitcases on a budget?
Oh I am definitely pinning this for later. Thanks for the tips!
Girl, I am so impressed! I need to save this for my next trip!
