It’s been on my bucket list to get out there and travel more.
So when Royal Caribbean invited me to check out one of their newest ships, Harmony of the Seas, I couldn’t say no. There was just no way. (Thank goodness for saved vacation days at work. Phew.) We’ll be embarking on our journey exactly a week from today, and I am so excited to share more with you in the next few weeks!
But on a more serious note…what the heck do I pack?
Since I haven’t traveled nearly as much as I want to, I’m not really the best at packing. I tend to get nervous and over-pack: What if I need this blouse? Or this pair of shoes? Oh! Can’t forget two different curling irons!
It’s seriously a dilemma.
But today, I want to share with you what to pack in your carry-on. Okay, fine, I’m going to show you what I’M GOING TO BE PACKING in hopes to give you some ideas;)
When it comes to packing, I think a new standard I need to make for myself: If I can’t carry it, I can’t take it. Luckily, I just got this amazing suitcase just in time for my quick getaway. I love all of the interior compartments, they allow me to strategically pack certain pieces in certain places – I think that’s really important when it comes to thinking about what to pack in your carry-on.
One of the coolest features of this suitcase is that there is an internal charger. SAAAAAY WHHAAAAAAT?! Yep. That’s right. There is a freakin’ charger. No more elbowing people at the airport for chargers. No more digging through your bag to find your portable one that will most likely die within a few minutes. This charger is so convenient for travel.
Ooooooh, I also just got this awesome convertible back pack. When it’s a backpack, it’s perfect for carrying through the airport. Then I can make the straps into a purse or take it off completely and just use it as a top-handle bag! How cool is that? I also love this mini version too.
PERFECT TRAVEL BAGS:
Personally, I love airports. Even when I was younger, it was one of my favorite places. So I guess that’s why I love airport style too.
Although my first priority is to be comfortable (especially for a longer flight), I still like to look somewhat presentable. Cause, ya know, the paparazzi are going to be waiting to take my photo;) (Ugh, that was a bad joke.) Since we’re heading somewhere warm by plane before the cruise, I’m most likely going to wear this tank, throw this on as a layer, and have my scarf nearby for extra warmth.
For this trip, I know I’m going to be packing 3-4 pairs shoes (definitely bringing these), a few pairs of shorts (just bought these), tons of dresses (how cute is this one), and some light layering pieces (like this bomber) – isn’t it cold on the water?. I just did some damage online (thank goodness for expedited shipping), so I’ll have some new fashion content to share with you from fun places!
WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR CARRY-ON:
I’m not really big into skincare…..(I’m really trying to be better about this). But recently, I was introduced to a few brands that I’ve been obsessing over their products. TULA and Pixi are two really great brands that I plan to pack in my carry-on. I love the idea of keeping my face hydrated – especially since we’re going to be flying to the port. I have NO time to have dry skin (going from cold to hot temps really screws with my skin…and vice-versa).
What tips and tricks do YOU have when it comes to what to pack in your carry-on?
