I started this series back in 2012 because when I travel, I only pack a carry on. Even when we travel as a family, we only pack in a carry on (per person, sometimes shared). I hope these travel light packing lists help you as much as planning ahead helps me.
With fall in full swing, I’ve been thinking a lot about travel during this transitional time and how I start to yearn for more warm and cozy comforts when I travel. I love snuggling up into a warm sweater, scarf, or blanket whether it’s on my couch at home or during a flight. Since their fewer better mantra has resonated with me so much, today I’m sharing a few of my fall travel essentials from one of my favorite brands, Cuyana.

With all of my experience packing light and making my travel light packing lists, I think the most common item in all of them is a simple scarf. A scarf serves many functions during travel no matter what type of climate you’re in. It can be used as a scarf, a pillow, a swimsuit cover up, a blanket on a cold flight, or even a nursing cover. The possibilities really are endless! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite ways to use a scarf, as well as some of my favorite scarves.
Of all of the places we could go in the summer, you would think that somewhere warm and tropical would come to mind, right? That’s not usually the case here. Our summer travels have included places like Denmark, Iceland, and Alaska just to name a few. We usually travel from a place that is warm to somewhere that is at least 30 degrees cooler and sometimes that makes it hard to pack. Today I’m sharing some of my best travel light tips for warm to cold climate packing, starting first with what to wear for travel…
Ever since our trip to Copenhagen and Malmö I’ve been dying to head to another place in Scandinavia, Stockholm! Since it has been the summer of California as far as my travels go, I thought I’d take today to share a sort of packing wishlist for the stylish city of Stockholm, Sweden. I’ve compiled a packing list for summer in Sweden with enough items for 10 different outfits that all fit into a carry-on suitcase. All of the items are on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so get them while they’re hot!
