How I Packed Only A Carry-On & What I am Taking for Our Honeymoon in GREECE!
Good morning… evening… I don’t even know! Currently seven hours into a ten hours flight to Athens, Greece only to re-board another plane to Santorini three hours later. We will be exhausted to say the least but I have a feeling may excitement will take over! We are honeymooning in Greece for two weeks and will be hopping from Santorini back to Athens for two days and then on to Zakynthos, Greece for our final stop. Definitely follow along with us on IG stories!
Today and I sharing what I packed and how I packed (only carry-on) for our two week honeymoon. I became hooked on this idea of packing much much less out of pretty much desperation when the girlies and I started our Summer adventures abroad. They were so little then and we are constantly bopping between planes, trains and Ubers where I found myself constantly carrying all of their stuff too and I thought there HAS to be a better way!!!
Although I wish I could say there is a magical answer, it’s basically just plan ahead and make it work! If there was a key to doing this, it would be this UnderSeat Carry-On. It is the maximum sized bag that can be considered a personal item and it fits under the seat in front of you just perfect! So that means you can pack a carry-on suitcase too! I have several organizers that I love I will share below and I basically just put everything except clothing into that UnderSeat Carry-On. I plan all of my outfits ahead to mix and match and I of course minimize liquids. I transfer my MUST-HAVES into carry-on sized containers and then I just compromise on other stuff such as shampoo and deodorant for whatever travel size brands I can find at the store. A lot of times I will just buy stuff like that wherever I am going and then trash it when we leave. It’s worth it I promise!!! I also only pack one pair of shoes which is key too! Here’s a peek at how I do it and everything I packed for this trip… YOU CAN DO IT!!!
These Pants are soooo cute and cozy! Definitely a new fave! The waistband is perfect and I love the color. I am wearing a small and I think they run TTS. I paired it with this new Crop Top from Target. I don’t usually go quite so cropped but we are honeymooning in Greece so why not?!?
I love this Skirt so much I got it in two prints! This one and the one further down on this post in red. I LOVE the high-low and the colors are so pretty and fun. It is also an Amazon Best Seller! I paired it with a very favorite Crop Top from Free People. I have this one in three colors and you will see the others below! Wearing a M/L in the top and a small in the skirt.
These Pants are one of my newest go-to’s. I got them in a soft pink earlier this year and I loved them so much I got them in blue! I prefer looser bottoms and more fitted tops on my body type so I tend to gravitate toward this style pant. I am wearing an x-small in the pants… they run a tad big! And then a small in the tank.
Lightweight, cozy and cute Amazon Skirt! I love mid-length skirts on me and I thought this one would be a fun addition to my closet! I paired it with this new Top that I feel will pair with a lot on our trip! I am wearing a small in both and I think they run TTS.
I LOOOOOVE these Jeans!!! Ab wears them just about 23/7 and I have been eying them for quite some time. They’re just a fun, wide leg jean that pairs cute with so many tops. I paired them with a Tank I got with a big Free People haul I did last week. This tank is soooo cute and comes in several colors. I am wearing a 26 in the jeans and a small in the top. I think they both run TTS!
This Skirt and this Tank were two of my favorites from my recent Free People haul. This Skirt is so flowy and fun and it can also be worn as a dress! I LOVE this color too! Could definitely be worn into Fall. I paired it with this lace Tank. The lace is see-through below the chest area FYI! Super cute though! Wearing a small in both!
The perfect Summer Dress! Lightweight, flowy and colorful! It’s a soft, thin cotton and the print is BEAUTIFUL! I am a sucker for a cozy Summer dress. The straps are adjustable too! I am wearing a small.
These. Pants. It goes without saying if you follow Ab and I on IG stories that we both LOOOOVE these pants! We always have to text one another and make sure the other isn’t wearing them that day. Which is basically everyday! LOL. This Top has been a longtime fave of mine. It’s just a simple black tank but the fit is fabulous and it’s pretty tight which works perfect for pants like this. The length is great too! The pants run big and I am wearing an XS. I am wearing a small in the tank.
Another longtime FAVE! I have this Dress in two colors and have had one color for YEARS! It’s a great lightweight Summer dress that can easily be dressed up or down. A definite go-to of mine! I am wearing a small and I think it runs TTS.
I just got this Dress in last week and it’s very cute! Very twirly and Summery. The fabric is very soft and decently thick. I love the ombre look too! I am wearing a small and I think it runs TTS.
This Skirt again! I LOVE IT!!! I love the style, the print, the fit and the colors! Very affordable too! This Tank is the second color I am sharing of the square neck crop top I love so much. It’s perfect for high waisted bottoms like this!
Another fabulous Summer Dress! It’s lightweight, cozy, bright and fun! I have worn this lots lately! I am wearing a small and I think it runs TTS.
I LOVE these Shorts! They were a fave on mine when I originally shared them on another fashion post. They are VERY affordable, a great length and I love the fringe detail! I am wearing a size 4 and I think they run TTS. I like this Top a LOT! Just wish I had sent it back for a smaller size. It’s a bit baggy and long. I ordered a medium because it looked small online and then I forgot to send it back and switch it out! It’s very cute though! Love the one shoulder.
Tank / Shorts
These Shorts are another affordable FAVE! The little pompom detail is soooo cute and the fit is fabulous! I wear them without the tie but they are cute either way! I am wearing a size 4 and I think they run TTS. I paired it with a tank I have had for YEARS from a Nordstrom Sale.
This top is actually a Bodysuit and I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet! I am hoping Greece will be the perfect opportunity. I love the color and the girlie ruffles. I am wearing a small. And these Shorts are a pair I raved about a few months ago! Just a great, not so short, affordable pair of shorts.
This is the “Dress” I wore for our rehearsal dinner in California and I LOOOOOVE IT!!!!! I got so many compliments on it! It’s very soft and comfortable and just so fun!!! I am wearing a small.
These Joggers are today’s airport outfit! A new jogger FAVE!!! The material is very thin (in a good way) and cozy. I love the waist and the pockets. I have it paired here with a Tank I shared above with the red skirt. Today I paired them with a black crop top. Super cute!
Last but not least these adorable ruffled Shorts! I got them on Amazon several months ago and I LOVE THEM! I think they look best with a fitted top, crop top or bodysuit since they’re high waisted and a bit baggy. I am wearing a size 4!
Super fun to swap around the bottoms and tops…
XOXO, Brittany Palazzo
