Weekender Bags

It's that time of year!
...weddings, graduations, bachelor/bachelorette shindigs, mini-vacations, & weekend trips.

Instead of pullin' out the giant suitcase, it's always nice to have a bag that fits all you need for 2-4 days. I am not a fan of packing. In fact, I'm quite terrible at it. It makes me stressed & grouchy (ask Patrick), and I tend to pack more than I need as I fabricate scenarios where I just might need five pairs of shoes and a wool sweater at the beach. The good thing about weekender bags? Their size gives you a limit. I'm always forced to put that third extra outfit back in the closet so I can zip the sucker up. And lo & behold, I always have enough.

Do you have a favorite weekender bag? Here are some different styles I like --

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

I have #8. I've used it for countless trips and the thing is practically indestructible. Which I need. The last flight I was on required me sprinting up to the gate in order to board before they closed the door. As I grabbed my boarding pass, I heard "Ma'am! Ma'am!" and thought oh great, what now. "Where did you get that bag??! I NEED IT!" I couldn't help but smile. Yes, it's pretty great. (Pssst, MZ Wallace is having a sale right now.) I've also been eyeing the company that makes #2 & #5...their videos of what all fits inside the bags are both clever & mesmerizing. Have a look here.

until next time,
