Carry On

Many of you will be vacationing somewhere fabulous this summer and often times, flights are involved. The perfect carry-on bag is lightweight and has plenty of room to store needed materials. Personally when I travel I always bring a backpack because it's hands free but I completely understand the desire to have a purse instead so a large Le Pliage Longchamp is also a great option because it is very roomy. I have a huge fear of checking a bag (I went 7 days in Costa Rica with just using carry-on luggage---thank god for large Vera Bradley duffles that can be shoved in all airport overhead compartments), but for the rest of you who don't have the same fears as I do, I wanted to provide a checklist of things you can/should pack in your single carry-on bag.
The List

The Bag:

The Information:
  • Passport
  • Boarding Pass
  • Wallet (with license, money, credit cards, etc)
  • Copy of Flight Itinerary
  • Hotel and transportation information
The Entertainment:
The Extra Comforts:
  • Neck Pillow
  • Ear Plugs -- You never know when a screaming baby makes an appearance
The "Just In Case":
  • Clean Tee-Shirt
  • Clean pair of undies and bra (especially if you're checking a bag--- luggage gets lost more than you know!)
  • Phone Charger
  • Any prescriptions you might need
  • Camera - In case you see any chances for photo opts before you get to the hotel
The Freshen Up Neccessities
What do you put bring in your carry-on?


  1. I love the miniemergency kit! It is perfect. I always keep my makeup in my carryon bag.

  2. Love that blue bag - so chic looking! And totally with you on the neck pillow - I have a pink polka dot one that I always take!

  3. Good ideas! I've only flown on a plane once, but this is still good stuff to keep with you on a roadtrip!
