One of my biggest tips for packing light: use only carry on luggage (we LOVE these super lightweight carry-on spinner suitcases). You’re forced to whittle down to all of your favorite, most versatile pieces. So today I’m sharing the best of the best, everything I’m putting in my carry-on bag for a week in Italy!

I’m wearing a super-comfortable airport outfit – cropped joggers and a light sweater – to relax on the flight and hopefully get some sleep. I’ll throw on a jacket with it on the way to the airport and use my Le Pliage neo bag as a personal item – I tuck my smaller bag inside to save space in my suitcase and keep my carry-on items really organized. Then, once we are at the destination, I’ll take out the smaller bag and use it day-to-day. I love the Le Pliage because it folds up neatly when you aren’t using it, and you can toss it in your suitcase.

For most sight-seeing days, I’ll mix a classic pair of jeans and any of the tops I’m bringing along with a flat shoe – I’m packing my most comfortable sandals – I could seriously walk all day in these. Love them.

For a night out I’ll throw on these very Chanel-esque block heels with a tiered dress or jeans. I wanted something a little more fancy for a nice dinner or church, and I love that the block heel on these makes them comfortable and easy to walk in.
