Oh the concept of a carry-on. Carry-on luggage either breaks you or makes you, literally sometimes my carry-on bag is to heavy to even do the carrying part.
Okay so the carry-on concept was completely invented by a lady, for the following reasons: 1) it’s brilliant ( duh, it’s basically a free luggage ) & 2) It allows me to leave no item of clothing behind ( amen ).
Every girl knows it is hard to travel, & traveling from CT to CA for college, is like the death of me
sometimes, all the time.
Somehow, I know I’ll forget to bring that one gray sweater, that I haven’t worn in a month, but all of a sudden can’t live without. That actually happens to me allll the time, & it ends up being such a struggle ( even though it shouldn’t be )! So when it comes to jamming everything in my suitcase. I always put the most sacred of clothing items in my carry-on.
1st off ALWAYS, pack at least one outfit in your carry-on ( god forbid your luggage gets lost, this will be your only survival! ). Below was the emergency outfit I packed just in case my enormous duffle of a luggage, didn’t make the plane.
Basically keep it simple, easy & classic. & make sure the outfit that you choose is appropriate for all occasions ( so don’t pack your favorite mini skirt & tube top, leave that for the duffel, trust me ).
I always pack jeans, a few T-shirts,
underwear ( just in case ) & of course socks. The daily essentials as I said earlier.
But really carry-ons are the only way, I am able to look halfway normal while traveling. Also, super important to pack all your jewelry & anything that has great value to you in your carry-on. Just in case your luggage goes MIA forever or walks off with a new BFF. I always pack my precious items along side me, cause you never know. Anyways what do you college ladies pack in your carry-on? I know a lot of us travel far far away for college, so how do you make it work? I’m all about packing my daily essentials & favorite clothing items, but how do you strategize?
& Ladies ( super important ) invest in a good carry-on. This little gem will be by your side for a longgggg time. So respect & invest (although that is always my shopping mantra ).
So if you are looking for that perfect carry-on look no further…
VINEYARD VINES, came out with a killer carry-on, that’s worth every penny ( found here ). This little stylish piece gets more compliments than I could have ever imagined, & fits almost 4 full outfits! 🙂 Perrfect.
But let me know, do you have a favorite carry-on?
I hope all you stylish ladies made it back to college & are ready for the start of a new semester… I know I am!
