How to Pack for a Long Week Away when Flying

                   

This week I will be in Palm Springs, San Diego, and LA. Going to three different spots it is hard to make sure you pack everything and get it all to fit in your luggage. Here is my packing guide and how to make it all fit.

What to pack in your carry-on:

In my carry-on I usually pack my valuables and anything I will need on the plane or immediately when getting to my destination. My carry-on list is as follows:

*My carry on bag is here (eyeing this one here too)
*Noise-canceling headphones for the plane (here)
*My Cannon Rebel Digital Camera for blog and travel pictures (similar here)
*My expensive handbags (two of my favorites here and here)
*My expensive jewelry (some favorites here and here)  
*Sunglasses (including these here and here)
*Any medications, vitamins (hair vitamins here), lip balm (here)
*Expensive Makeup that is allowed through security (here are two favorites here and here)
*Chargers and and portable chargers (here
*My Laptop and iPad 
*Extra set of clothes, extra panties and bra......just in case my suitcase doesn't arrive when I do :(  
*Swimsuit (eyeing this one here) and beach towel here)
*Extra pair of sandals (two favorites here and here)
*A book (currently reading this, next this)


For the suitcase I check (found here) I add in the rest. This seems to be a favorite suitcase of many here.

All the clothes you will need. I try to limit this so that the bag is not too heavy.

*I take one pair of jeans (my favorite right now are these white denims here)
*Always have a pair of leggings (favorites here)
*One pair of heels for nights out (Loving these here)
*Skincare products (Favorites here, here, and here)
*Makeup (Favorites here, here, and here
*I also make sure I have an extra sweater (here and here)
*A rain coat (here)
*A pair of gym shoes (eyeing these here)
*All my clothing I plan to wear (I make sure I plan out by day with one or two extra option just in case. I do this so I do not over pack. Taking a lot of dresses for this trip because the weather will be nice. Two of my favorite dresses are here and here

I try to pack this strategically so that it is organized and and everything fits. I store all my makeup and skincare products in a cosmetic bag (favorite here and here). Put my shoes in shoe bags (here and here). I roll my jeans and leggings so they do not take up too much room. I fold up the rest of my clothes and place them on one side of the suitcase on the other I put the shoes and then my makeup bag on top of the shoes. I put under garments and night clothes in the front zippers and use the top zippers for anything else or to store my dirty clothes though out the week.

One thing that I always do is add an identifying piece on the outside my checked luggage, such as a ribbon because with so many suitcases at baggage claim it is easier to spot yours. 

What are some of your packing tips that work for you? I have also link some of the items i mention above and some of the pieces I will be wearing this week below. Hope you enjoy!
