You ask, I deliver. How to pack just a carry on for a hot weather week long vacay. It may seem impossible but it is oh so very possible so here we go.

First, here are some key points to remember: Neutrals, winkle free materials, versatile cuts, necessity only cosmetics (in travel size), favourites only (applicable to everything you pack). So here is the list to live by:

Packing List

3 bikini tops (same cut, different colors)

2 bikini bottoms (same cut, neutral colors)

beach cover up (neutral color that goes with all bikinis)

silk pants (white or nude)

denim shorts (blue or black)

5 tops (neutral colors, flattering cuts, materials that don’t wrinkle)

maxi dress (neutral color)

romper (something that works for day and night)

2 going out dresses (whatever your flavour is)

undergarments (enough for everyday, no more, no less)

pair of going out sandals (nothing bulky, nothing uncomfortable, any color)

pjs (2 or 3 sets that can even double as pool wear)

pair of flip flops (neutral)

dainty jewelry

travel size cosmetics

Plane Attire

1 sweater or jacket (lightweight, versatile color and cut)

favorite pair of jeans

white tee

sneakers or flats

So there you have it, how to pack for a week long vacation in the sun in a carry on. And if you like this post, let me know so I can maybe do a 'pack a carry on’ series for different types of trips (business, cold weather, etc.). xo!
