Getaway Weekend in LA with Just a Carry-On

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but I hate checking bags when traveling. I also hate bulky carry-ons. If it is a short trip, all I need is a backpack and I have come to realize I can fit everything I need into just that.

First off, remember most places have laundry. Secondly, you have to wear something on the plane. Why don’t you just wear one of the outfits you planned out for the trip?! One less thing to carry. Now, here is what little I brought!


  • 1 Pair of Jeans
  • 1 Pair of Shorts
  • 1 Pair of Hiking Shorts


  • 2 Casual T-shirts
  • 1 Tank-Top
  • 1 Blouse


  • 1 T-shirt dress


  • 1 Pair of sandals
  • 1 Pair of booties
  • 1 Pair of sneakers


  • 1 Necklace
  • 1 Ring

PJs and Undies!


  • Light makeup (just enough to get by. It’s hot in LA and you are already beautiful so you don’t need it anyway)
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Travel shampoo/conditioner
  •  Travel brush
  • Moisturizer
  • Hair product
  • Flatiron (to straighten or curl!)
