When the weather starts to get a little warmer, my mind always turns to one thing: ROADTRIP! Never mind the fact that I don’t have a car because I live in New York, or the fact that it’s not quite warm enough for a trip to any beach within driving distance to be enjoyable. My internal clock is still tuned to Spring Break, and I’m starting to get that itch to drive down to the Florida coast like we did every year in high school.
Unfortunately, Florida is a lot further from New York than it is from Atlanta, where I grew up, and it’s not quite warm enough yet to make one of the beaches up North an enjoyable jaunt. I can still plan for that eventuality, though, and in a perfect world, I’d be packing my bathing suits and flip flops into a bag like the Louis Vuitton Keepall 50 Nomade. It may be the perfect weekender.
With the high price and fine leather of this bag, I’d probably be too nervous to take it on an airplane, even as a carry on, but I could certainly see myself throwing it in the back seat of a rental convertible and setting out for the coast. This kind of bag is the perfect size for a trip of a few days to a week, as long as you’re not packing heavy winter coats and boots, which is why it’s best to save it for summer if it’s going to be your primary luggage.
This bag is a fantasy piece for me, but Louis Vuitton‘s non-monogrammed pieces are often so beautiful that as someone who’s not a monogram lover, I can’t help but zero in on them and obsess. What’s your dream weekender bag and where would you take it? If you and I are on the same page, you can order this bag via Louis Vuitton, price is $5100.
