Hi everyone! Welcome to the first edition of Travel Tuesday. Every Tuesday, or at least until I run out of content, will now be about travel. If you've been following along, you know I travel more than the average person. Because I take so many trips, I thought I would turn those miles into useful content and share with you my tips, tricks and picks. I'm really excited to get started and I hope you enjoy the series!
Today is all about my weekender from Barrington Gifts. As we know by now, I have a thing for navy and white stripes, and this bag is no exception. The crisp white and the true navy stripes go perfectly with the brown leather trim (and my monogram). This bag is perfect for summer and weekend vacations with your friends. One thing about duffles is that I always end up filling them with more than I expected. I swear there is more room than people think and it's perfect for the over-packer like myself.
What I found to be so fun with Barrington Gifts is with all of their products you can pick your own color and design. From seven color options and nine designs, the possibilities are endless. You can even see exactly what your bag will look like (monogram included) in the preview!
Pro Tip: Always find a duffle with a shoulder strap.
(I'll be including one of these along with every post) If you're anti-shoulder strap, opt for one that can be detached. When carrying around a week's worth of clothes and shoes, you want to be able to put that weight on something stronger than your arm or in your hands. It really comes in handy for when you're walking around for any extended period of time. The strap gives you more options for the road ahead!
