We take off for our trip to London and Cornwall (side note: you guys left the most amazing comments on that post, I just adore you) in just a couple of short weeks and being the most type-A there ever was, I’ve already started making lists of what I’m going to bring. Justin and I have recently started travelling with carry-ons alone, and while it has made packing slightly more difficult, it has been a massive game changer when it comes to the actual travel portion of our trip. Not being bogged down with stuff in addition to breezing through airports and never worrying about a lost bag is a dream, but it definitely comes with some challenges. This go around we’ll be doing a week in England and a week in Paris, so two vastly different landscapes and experiences to pack for. But I figure if we can do three weeks in Africa in a carry on this will be a breeze. Right? My approach: picking a single colour palette and largely sticking to it so that everything is super mix and matchable. Plus wearing all bulkier items on the plane because, let’s be honest, every single square inch of suitcase real estate is precious. Here’s what I’m thinking for the British portion of our vacation…
As an aside, I own, and stand by, every last one of these items (with the exception of the rain coat, which I’m still contemplating pulling the trigger on – a raincoat is essential for England, right?) The carry on, leather tote (it has a zipper! a travel must), and white square neck cami (so comfortable, inexpensive, and FLATTERING!) are especially great. Also, if you don’t own a Third Love bra, you need to get on that, stat. This isn’t sponsored (though that is an affiliate link), I am truly a devoted fan. I just ordered two more, and have since kicked all others to the curb – sayonara!
