travel capsuleLooking stylish while traveling doesn’t have to involve loads of luggage. It is possible to look great with just a carry-on. I’ve traveled extensively out of just my carry-on luggage on trips from 3 days to 4 months. YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

I believe how you look when you travel can enhance your travel experience. If you make of an effort to look less like a tourist it can lead to a more authentic experience.

Here at Travelista you’ll find tips and ideas for packing that don’t involve bringing half your closet. I’ve developed a system that I’m sharing with you!

Travel is an investment in yourself. Why not get the most out of it by packing smarter, lighter and better?

If you need a step-by-step guide to packing your carry-on check out my Guides. I’ve got a 3 phase process that takes you from panicked to packed! YOU GOT THIS!

    Oh my goodness! I happened to find your blog through pinterest (love!) and swooned. Your style and tips are exactly who I wish I was.
    Can’t wait to explore your site some more. Already going to go get shampoo bars for my next trip!

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Would you be able to make a PACK LIGHT list for winter. I’m going to Lake Tahoe in a week and I’m having trouble packing light with sweaters, 4 pairs of boots, etc. Can you help?!
    Thanks

    I’m going to be traveling to London during the winter time and I was hoping you could put together a tutorial on what to make for cold weather in Europe? Pretty please?

    I absolutely LOVE your website! I’ve been looking for this type of advice for years and I can’t believe I only chanced upon your blog recently from Pinterest! I love how you think: shampoo bars! I recently wrote a blog about solid toiletries for travel too! http://thepocketcloset.blogspot.ca/2012/03/people-often-ask-how-i-manage-to-travel.html

    Thanks for the great advice and inspiration. Keep up the great work!

    I believe somewhere in your packing suggestions it’s recommend that wool or synthetic long underwear be included. Hunters and those who winter camp in Iceland swear by silk long underwear! I recommend buying at Cabela’s or Dharma Trading Company. DTS even sells silk socks and mittens and an incredible variety of silk and silk blend SCARVES!! Silk doesn’t retain odors or energy (for those that believe). Old-wives tales also advise wearing a silk scarf around the neck & across the chest to prevent sore throats & chest infections.
    Happy Trails
