Carry-On Packing List for kids Part 1

I’ve got pretty good at refining my own wardrobe and planning out outfits that allow me the most bang for my buck, but I seem to have had a harder time doing that with my kids. There is just so many darn cute things out there. I need to pull in the reigns though, since it just seems so wasteful to me. There always seems to be items hanging in their closets that don’t get any wear at all. This makes it hard to pack since a lot of the pieces don’t seem to go together very well. I was just thinking the other day of what I would pack for both kids if/when the chance arrives. If I left my 10-year-old to her own devices, she would end up with a bunch of clothes that weren’t weather appropriate, didn’t match,  and wouldn’t pack anything that would be suitable for dressier occasions. I’m sure it would be jeans, t-shirts, and several pairs of converse. So I wanted to challenge myself and came cup with a good list based on similar items that she already owns. A nice mixture of clothes that can be switched up and layered to provide her with a lot of outfit combinations. The base colour is blue which is her favourite colour, and I added grey, black, and white pieces to tie it all together. Links to items are listed under the picture with prices and where to find them. Let me know in the comments below if there are any must have items that you pack for your kids when you take a trip. I’m going to work on my 4-year-old’s list next because hers is going to be a little harder to figure out. She always makes things just a little bit harder for me 😉
