The Most Stylish Carry-On Luggage

Now that the holiday season is here, traveling to see family members is in full swing. Whether you're driving or flying to different destinations, proper luggage is important. While I would so much rather check my luggage if I'm flying (for the sole purpose of being able to take a larger bag and overpack more than I already do), carry-ons are essential. There's no wait time after you land, your bags are literally in the compartment right above you, and there's basically no risk of losing your luggage. 

While I am not flying to CT, I am instead driving and am going to be filling my little Mini Cooper with suitcases. I am gone for 9 days - I need outfit options! My car is actually baby size, and in lieu of having one or two large suitcases for the vacation, I love using a few carry-ons. It definitely helps me stay organized, since certain items go in certain bags.

For carry-ons, I like to separate them into two categories: hard case and oversize tote bags. Most recently, I have used an Olympia carry-on that came in a three piece set. I love it, and the hardcase options above are very similar. I think the Herschel pink carry-on is so cute, and it's also very similar to the Calpak Ambeur.

Pink suitcases, especially millennial pink, are ideal.

I have a hot pink carry-on from C. Wonder (RIP), and though it's super banged up (it survived all of high school and college), the color still makes me happy.

I actually saw the Vera Bradley Hardside Spinner Luggage in person and the print is adorable. While I do love everything black, it's so boring to have the same boring, black suitcase as everyone else in the airport.

If you are going to have a black suitcase, however, I love the marble design on this Calpak. It's just a little different.

Looove black weekender bags though, aka this Kate Spade bag. You would get a ton of use out of it.

I also think this pink Longchamp Expandable Bag is perfect for traveling. It comes in a lot of other colors, too, but the pink is just fun. Can y'all tell I'm in a colorful mood lately?

  1. I have that Vera Bradley hardcase spinner and I love it! The print is so cute and I like that it stands out from the typical black suitecases.

  2. I love the suitcases you picked out! Hardshell suitcases are the best. I've had a hardshell suitcase that is still going strong after 5 years.
