Since I’m heading off to New York today for the next week, I thought I’d share what I normally pack in my carry-on! The luggage brand AWAY sent me a sick new carry-on for fashion week and I can’t wait to test it out! It features a built-in battery for plugging in all of your tech tools, that way you can charge on the go! The carry-on is super lightweight, features two different zipped compartments to keep things separated, and a compression system so you can squeeze more things in there.
Each trip is different, so my carry-on doesn’t always feature the same contents. Since this one is a pretty short flight, I don’t need to include all of the various toiletries I mention below – I instead use this space to squeeze in a couple clutches and designer bags I don’t want vulnerable in my checked luggage.
Here are several items you’ll often find in my carry-on:
TECH // Laptop, Kindle, Camera, Charging Components, Earbuds
TOILETRIES // Travel-size bottle of contact solution + a contact case, my glasses, Simple Skincare Cleansing Wipes Travel Pack, travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste, hand sanitizer, eye mask, a small brush (I have this one specifically for travel)
STYLE // usually one full outfit for backup (top or sweater, a pair of jeans, bra, underwear and a pair of flats), one workout outfit (because they don’t take up much room and help pad the hard lining of the suitcase), any designer bags or clutches I don’t feel comfortable checking, jewelry
EXTRAS // a couple of healthy snacks like an apple or energy bar so I’m not tempted by unhealthy airplane snacks, my passport, any travel documents/itineraries, medicine
