It should be obvious to all comers that we think designer bags are great in almost any situation, but they’re not always the thing you want to have on your arm. If you’ve got a surfeit of cash and want to send yourself or your teenager to school with her bags in an Hermès Birkin, far be it from me to tell you not to.
Vera Bradley is a brand most people are familiar with. While I have a couple Vera Bradley bags for daily use, what I love most from the brand is its travel gear, including large duffle bags, cosmetic cases and beyond. With summer here, many of us have travel plans, and everyone wants to be sure to have the best gear to carry their stuff.
Everyone’s idea of relaxation is different, which means that there are huge variations in what people expect from their travel gear. Some people want a beach bag that’s essentially just a designer handbag with some raffia worked in so they can sit in a cabana at the Gansevoort in style, and others want something lightweight, inexpensive and durable to fill with snorkeling gear.
Members of the PurseBlog team have already started leaving our little New York City nest in pursuit of holiday travel adventures (and I will be joining their ranks tomorrow), so now seemed like a good time to contemplate the best-case scenario for what to carry with us when we fly, drive or train-ride our way to our holiday destinations.
We don’t cover travel gear often enough on PurseBlog, and that needs to be rectified. If you follow us on Instagram, you know our team travels frequently, and we love to show the bags we are carrying and what we see when we travel.
