Travelling light is not a concept I really grasp. I know how to pack light for a weekend trip, but add on any more than 2 days and I'm so afraid to forget something - even though I've made countless lists. I tend to just cram it all in. In an effort to not do that this time around, I'm limiting myself and that starts with my carry-on tote. It's all centered around my LV Neverfull that is basically a bottomless pit!
Hopefully I'm not the only one that does this, but I usually put the purse I'll be carrying during the trip into my tote. I wish I had purchased the Gigi NY Cross Body, but didn't make the purchase in time - I find that cross-body bags are easier while site seeing! Along with carrying everything I normally have in my purse - I add in a few must haves for the trip! My jewelry and Cosmetic Bag
stay with me, as do headphones and a phone charger.
I obviously need to keep myself entertained because I am rarely able to sleep so the Kindle and a few magazines are my go to. Some other musts on longer trips are healthy snacks, Evian mist and a water bottle. My sister introduced me to Evian mist and it is seriously the most refreshing thing to spray once you land at your destination! Since my upcoming flight is going to be almost 8 hours I'm going to want to make sure I have a great pashmina and some socks so I don't get cold!
I'm also old school and print out the itinerary including all our reservations because I like to have hard copies of everything!
What have I missed? What are you carry-on essentials? Are you a light packer? If so, teach me your ways!!
