Do you pack a carry-on bag when you travel? Do you think you could pack a carry on bag for 10 days? I have been team carry-on for over 10 years now and I’m telling you, it’s easy to be stylish and still only take a carry-on bag.
All of the outfits in the pic below were in my carry-on bag for my 10 day trip to Barcelona. I use my line of packing cubes which keeps everything nice and neat.
Check out my video and see just how easy it is to use them.
How to pack a carry on bag for 10 days
The following 3 basic items were in my bag. I built my wardrobe around these. Amazon has all of these items in stock, and if you click the links I will get a small commission.
- Grey pair of pants. Amazon has them as a pack of 2, I love mine!
- Grey skirt. This option packs up nicely!
- Black skirt. This is plus size but I find that those skirts fit me better cause I have an ample bottom.
- A jean jacket. I think a jean jacket works well for traveling because they can be dressed up or down.
The above items were paired with 6 shirts and 3 tank shirts. I like color so I made sure my shirts were vibrant (which meant they could all be washed together). I love dresses (you can see some of the dresses I have found on Amazon here, they have traveled all over the world with me!) so I packed a couple of those and took 2 pairs of shoes. Two scarves, my jewelry and 1 purse (you can see I rocked it in almost all my pics) made up the rest. That’s it. That’s all I needed and I had more than enough.
I took the 3 basics from my carry-on and created several different looks. All it takes is a little planning to coordinate your outfits and you’ll be set!
This is one of my favorite travel dresses. I got it from Amazon and it fits great! Try this one and this is another option for this style of dress. Just hang it up to dry or dry it with no hot air.
