15 Outfits, 1 Carry-On Suitcase

I have the best intentions when it comes to packing for a trip. I often promise myself, “I will only pack the things I need.” I aim for a carry-on sized suitcase. Then after a few hours of packing, I compromise to a medium-sized suitcase.

The next day, I walk into the airport with my biggest suitcase plus a carry-on.

Oh boy, I didn’t fulfill on my intention again!

But I quickly learned this does not have to be the case, thanks to this blog post. I gathered 12 different pieces around Wildflower and created 15 outfits that can take you from day to night for a relaxing beach vacation.


As you can see from the photo above, the 12 pieces are perfect for a carry-on sized suitcase. The accessories are also very light and easy to pack. Throw in a couple pairs of shoes and you are ready to enjoy your beach vacation!

The key is to really play around with layering. Don’t be afraid to get a little creative. Throw on a sweater over a dress and belt it to create a skirt, or use a scarf as a shawl. There are so many possibilities, but here are 15 of our favorites!

So next time you are doubting your packing skills, remember that it is possible to pack lightly without re-using the same outfit during your vacation! Good luck and let us know if you need any help with this challenge.

For now, we will be dreaming about this sunset…
