Carry On Bags

Sticking with the theme of the week, Carry on bags! This can be a challenging task too, you never know what you need or where you'll get stuck.

  • Like we said earlier, we love our Longchamp Le Pliages for carry on! We also love our Vineyard Vines totes for when we need and want to organize things a little better.
  • Magazines are a great way to pass time, as well as books! Pick up a novel or two and enjoy some reading time!
  • Gum/Mints for ear popping and for freshening breath when you're deboarding.
  • iPod/headphones to listen to music.
  • Pashmina/scarf to keep warm, pashminas also double as a blanket! (I slept the whole way home from Europe with my pink pashmina!)
  • Ziplock with hairspray, lip gloss, chap stick, lotion and hand sanitizer! This is probably sufficient unless you're not checking a bag. I find that my skin gets really dry, so the lotion and chap stick help a lot. And of course, hand sanitizer! Not pictured but also helpful, Colgate Wisps!
  • Empty Water Bottle. There is a sort of stigma about the water on the airplanes, so I like to bring an empty water bottle and fill it up before I board. Just make sure it's not full when you're going through security!
  • Some healthy snacks. Fruit and pretzels are always good! Sometimes the plane food can seem questionable, or you get delayed and hungry.
What do you always carry on for flights?


  1. I bring a bobble water bottle with me when I fly. I love it because it has a you can fill it up (after going through security) at a water fountain and still have filtered, bottled water.

  2. Love using my Longchamp and Vineyard Vines bags as carry-ons! I'll definitely remember to bring Wisps now, too.
