The count down is real y'all! I'm off to Jamaica in the morning, so I've put together a little guide for what to include in your carry on, check it out!
First and foremost, and most importantly, when traveling out of the country do not forget your passport! Get a cute passport cover or whatever you need to do to remember it. Trust me you'll be super annoyed if you get all the way to the airport only to discover you can't get through security. My current passport cover is Kate Spade and its cute pok-a-dot print makes me want to bring it everywhere, making it near impossible to forget.
I always like to pack a beach outfit, which for me is a bathing suit, a cover up, my flip flops, sunglasses and a hat. This means less time digging through my suitcase for an outfit and more time soaking up the rays! My bathing suit choice this time around was my new, pink one -piece from Aerie, matched with a floral cover up from Forever 21, and of course my beloved customized hat! I can not wait to sport this chic beachy look this week, I'm excited already!
Along with your beach outfit, you're carry on should also include one outfit in case your luggage comes late or is lost (hopefully this never happens to anyone!) But, in the rare occurence that it does it is always nice to have just a couple back up pieces. This assures that no matter what you won't miss any vacay time! I went for a versatile look that can be worn day or night, a pair of olive palazzo pants with a cream crop top and brown lace up sandals. I won't be missing any vacay time thats for sure!
Miscellaneous items I always like to include are 1) a portable charger, mines from Anthro and has the most adorable flamingos flamingling all over it! LOVE! 2) A water bottle, which has to be empty until you reach the other side of the gates at the airport, but I always like to bring my own water bottle to fill up for the plane ride or to use at the beach throughout the week. This go around I'm using a Swell water bottle. They are great for the beach because they keep whatever you're drinking ice cold all day long! 3) A good read! I am a huge beach reader, so I always make sure I have one or sometimes two good reads for a beach get away. Put it in your carry on and you can start it on the plane! 4) My selfie prep kit! A.K.A my make up bag. It's always nice to have your make up bag handy at all times you never know when you might need to freshen up and it makes for easy access when you reach your destination. 5) The t-shirt is all for the beach vibes 6) Last ,but not least I threw in my pineapple cup, this way you can get your cocktail (or mocktail) in style! Cheers!
Pack everything up in your favorite carry on bag, and hasta la vista, you're ready for you're beach getaway! Im traveling with my Le Pliage XL travel Longchamp bag in black. It fits everything, the perfect carry on item.
Hope this finds you well for your next travels. I'm out of here early in the AM. I will be trying to blog while away, but I'm not sure how much internet access I will have so bare with me!
