What's in my (carry on) bag

So as I've mentioned my trip to Houston like 5,436 times by now to say I'm excited is an understatement. It's finally going to be warm weather and hopefully some sunshine for a week straight, plus some quality time with my love A and meeting his extended family and friends.
Today I wanted to share what I'm packing in my carry on luggage. This is mostly just a clothes post although I have other various things like gifts for his parents, gifts for A (it's his birthday while I'm out there) and other little misc items.
Since it's 80 degrees in Houston this time of year, I oped to go mostly summery with a few jean options just for a night out or something. I picked 6 versatile and comfortable tops that can easily be mixed and matched with the bottoms I've chosen along with 2 nicer blouse tops. As far as bottoms, I chose 2 pairs of shorts (one denim, one colored) and a pair of jeans that could be dressed up or down.

In my travel plans, we are thinking of heading to Galveston for a few days (weather permitting, cross your fingers y'all). So I'm bringing along my cute new swimsuit from Target along with this comfy kimono I picked up last summer from T.J.'s the perfect cover up while laying pool or beach side.

I of course have my more comfier clothes like my PJ's obviously along with my Lululemon crops and a loose tank in case I go for a run or something while I'm there. These adorable PJ shorts are from Aerie last summer and they were less than $10 along with being cute, they are silkier material which is perfect and light for hot summer nights.

Finally I have my favorite clothing item for the spring/summer, dresses!! I recently bought a ton of new dresses for all the upcoming trips and events I have and love each of them. The pink/red/white floral dress is from Old Navy and if you go soon, I believe all dresses are 40% off which brings them to less than $20! The middle dress is my absolute favorite, I picked it up from Tobi during their 50% off sitewide sale. I love how this dress can easily be dressed up with a pair of heels, or worn more casually with cute sandals. The final floral dress is also a Tobi find and believe it or not, it was only $8 on clearance!! This is another fun versatile dress, but the material definitely makes it fun to wear in the summer.

What do you typically pack, clothes wise, for a spring/summer trip?
