Exploring in the City

If you’ve got a trip to the big city planned, whether it be LA, SF, or NY, you’ll probably be doing a lot of walking while you explore. A backpack is a chic, hands-free option that allows you to bring your essentials as well as stow away any trinkets or souvenirs you pick up along the way! With a bold red pop of color and minimal design, the Sidewalk Stunner Red Backpack will be turning heads as you wander around. Print fans are sure to love the Clarissa Black and White Gingham Backpack for it’s trendy gingham pattern and all the room it has to pack goodies on the go. Take it along shopping and stuff it with all your scores. If you’re planning on traveling light, the Perfect Grade Taupe Purse is chic choice that goes with everything and is easy to wear thanks to its crossbody design that you can sling over your shoulder on the go!

Beach Day

If you’re heading to the beach for some seaside sunbathing, you’re gonna need the perfect beach bag to bring along sunscreen, beach towels, and of course a glossy magazine to read (or block the sun while you nap). The Billabong Soak It Up Washed Black and Beige Round Woven Tote is the perfect size to store all your beach day needs, not to mention it has a trendy circle design that’s to die for! Planning the perfect beach picnic? Pack up your snacks (and maybe a bottle of rosé ) in the DeGarmo Tan Woven Basket Bag and you’re ready to snack in style! If you’re looking for a more beach glam vibe, the shiny silver threading and bucket design of the Lulus Perth Ivory Woven Bucket Bag is sure to catch your eye and carry all your goodies.

Weekend Getaway

Taking a road trip? Or maybe a weekend escape to the coast? You’ll need something big enough for for a few outfits, but nothing so big that you’ll end up over-packing. Solution: Weekender Bag. Classier than a duffel bag, but not so big it’s a suitcase, the Stay the Night Brown Weekender Bag will hold your daytime ‘fits, OOTN, and even an extra pair of shoes! Off to a seaside getaway? Tote along a towel, swimsuit, and sandals in the Jet Setter Cream and Black Striped Weekender Bag! If you’re taking a road trip with your gal pals, the First Class Tan Striped Weekender Bag will pack your weekend essentials, plus some extra looks when you just can’t decide what you’ll end up wanting to wear!
