I got bitten by the travel bug a long time ago, and suffer from the effects almost daily. Symptoms: a constant desire to pack my bags and travel to the next unvisited locale. I’m in love with places I’ve never been to and dream of vacations almost hourly. Perhaps I missed my calling as a travel writer from Travel + Leisure. Recently, I’ve been craving even just a weekend getaway. A cabin in the woods somewhere with cozy blankets and hot chocolate. Or a staycation in a downtown Seattle hotel with my husband. A train trip to Vancouver, B.C. or Victoria, B.C.—I could go on and on. But I won’t. Instead let’s talk about the cute bags I would need to get to any of these destinations. I am all about the weekender bag right now. The perfect size for a night or two away, it keeps me from overpacking, which is quite the feat.
There are so many options. From classic to fun and sporty. I love the canvas options from the new line Lo and Sons, but I could just as easily go for a classic Louis Vuitton Speedy. Each has it’s own charms. Here are my top picks for your next mini vacation!
