Packing A Carry-On

Traveling is one of my favorite things! I love exploring new places and am lucky to have friends that feel the same way. I am currently in Chicago on a girls' trip. This is my first time in the windy city and I'm loving seeing a new city and what it has to offer.  I can't wait to try some Chicago style pizza and see what all the fuss is about!

Packing can be a stressful part of traveling if you don't have a plan. It is hard to know exactly what you will need. For this trip, I checked a bag and took a small carry-on. Over my past few trips, I feel I have mastered what to pack in my carry-on. I think a carry-on can serve a few purposes. It can extend your suitcase and keep crucial items with you while you travel. 

I recently bought a new carry-on and it is perfect! I have the option to unzip the bottom and it gets larger. I first pick out my plane survival items. Next, I pack what I need in case my luggage gets lost.  Last, I pack anything that isn't fitting in my luggage. To keep the carry-on organized, I like to organize things in smaller pouches or bags. I put all of my chargers in this Tory Burch case
