A Carry On for every occasion: A Packing List

This January we went on a combined trip to China and Napa Valley. I took a 28 inch roller bag AND a 21 inch carry-on.

It was a nightmare. Repacking in each city and worrying about weight limits pushed me over the edge. I vowed I would change my overpacking ways.
This month, we are going on a 14 day trip to Australia. This time I am only taking the 21 inch carry on.
Here’s my packing list:

2 pairs of quick dry cargo pants
1 pair of leggings
3 dresses

1 swimsuit
1 pair of Teva sandals
1 pair of flip flops
1 pair of dress sandals
1 pair of pajamas
