HOW TO PACK FOR 8 DAYS IN A CARRY ON

krystal schlegel and luke davis

My family couldn’t believe we were able to pack for 8 days in Italy in a carry on!  When Luke and I travel we never check bags.  It is something I am so glad we are on the same page with because it saves so much time!

*I use this tumi roll on bag I ordered from Amazon.  It rolls all directions making it super easy to navigate the airport.  Every time I use it, I am surprised by how much it can fit and how light it is!

My summer packing list:

In the carry on:

1. Off the shoulder wrap blouse: This can be worn with white shorts or jeans and folds up easily

2. White shorts

3. Beaded earrings

4. 2 pairs of jeans: One white pair and one denim pair.

5. 3 Bathing Suits

6. 3 pairs of shoes:

 Wedges: I wore these on the plain since they take up so much room in the suitcase.

Running shoes: I took this pair since they fold up so easily and don’t take up a lot of space.

Sandals: One comfy pair. You will also want to get a handmade pair in Italy!

7. Three pairs of workout clothes

8. 6 sundresses

9. 2 scarves: These can double as a bathing suit cover up

10. 3 pair of pajamas

11. 4 Tee shirts.

12. Bras and underwear: I always bring this bra for strapless dresses and tops.

 For the plane ride:

1. Bose headphones

2. Kind Bars (these are is my favorite!)

3. Travel wrap

4. Fuzzy socks to slip on during the plain ride

5. Laptop filled with movies.
