Milan blog: What I pack with carry-on

What I pack when only taking carry-on

Hi guys, here is my second blog in my Milan series! Today I’ll tell you how I pack a carry-on to go on a city trip!

Carry on

What I pack with carry-on, me waiting with my carry-onWe all know the struggle of packing for a city trip and only being able to pack a carry-on. Well, I’m a complete mess at this, and I struggle all the time. I pack my carry-on and unpack it again so many times. But today I’ll show you what I bring most of the time when I go on a city trip.I take my small gold suitcase with me from Enrico Benetti. It’s just big enough to put everything in there for 3-4 days.




What I pack first are underwear and socks. Afterwards, I start planning my outfits; I usually take more tops than pants because you can wear different tops with the same pants and have a totally different outfit. I also take three shorts and three dresses. When I’m packing, I always take outfit’s with me for two more days than I’m going because when you’re on a city trip, and you’re walking around all the time you get sweaty and just want to change outfits!  I pack two pairs of shoes, in that case, I got three pairs with me when I’m there. I usually take a hat with me as well, but I forgot mine when I went to Milan.

I pack the essentials from my makeup but not too much because I don’t want to lose too much makeup when my suitcase gets stolen or anything. So I take one eyeshadow pallet, one or two lipsticks, foundation, concealer, bronzer, setting powder and some brushes. I also take the usual “beauty” stuff with me as well like a toothbrush and toothpaste. Last but not least, I also bring accessories like chokers, earrings, rings and sunglasses.


What I think is very important to bring on a city trip are batteries to charge your phone, a selfie stick, a Polaroid camera, your regular phone charger and a sound-splitter so that you can listen to music together from one phone without having to share headphones.

Now I’m ready to go and walk around in a beautiful city somewhere far away, to explore, learn more about the country and to shop of course! If you’re curious about how I plan a city trip, you can read it in my previous Milan blog. What do you guys do on a city trip and what do you bring?
