10 TIPS FOR TRAVELING LIGHT

10 TIPS FOR TRAVELING LIGHT

Traveling with only a carry on to Europe seemed absolutely crazy to me at first. Absolutely crazy. I mean, there's just too many things to bring along that a carry on won't fit! At least, that is the case for me. I am the queen of overpacking, I take pride in it.

Then, I thought about it. {And was also guided to}.

I'm headed to Ireland soon for just under 3 weeks and I will have one carry on bag. I recently purchased this carry on suitcase from Away. I got the bigger carry on in black and I will never travel without this bag ever again. It comes with a small built in charging station, the wheels never get caught, and it fits way more than you think - bonus for me!

I've put together a list of packing tips I've rounded up to hopefully help everyone out when they need to pack light!

1. When in doubt, pack black
2. Put things into perspective - do you really need that? {I've asked myself this multiple times while packing}
3. Layer your looks! One pair of jeans can go with multiple tops!
4. Wear your bulkiest pieces on the plane
5. Minimalist toiletries - you can always buy it at your destination, and more often than not, hotel shampoo and conditioner isn't too bad
6. Pack everything you want to take and then cut out a quarter of it
7. You only need 2-3 pairs of shoes
8. Have about 2-3 pieces that can be dressed up and down
9. Go for the first outfit you want to pack and bring it. Create 3-4 different ways to wear it
10. Stuff undergarments into shoes, hats, or bags, etc. to make the most of the space

Where are you off to next?
