Carry-On Bags

I travel quite a bit, so I've gotten packing my carry-on bag down to a science. I'm not one of those amazing girls who can fit everything they need for 3 days into a carry-on suitcase. No, I'm one of those girls who has to pack a full-on suitcase for a long weekend, including outfits for every conceivable event and multiple shoe possibilities for all weather conditions. Therefore, my carry-on bag usually just contains my "essentials" for the flight, and something to wear in case my luggage gets lost (quelle horreur!)

I'm not actually in the market for a new carry-on bag, but if I was, I'd probably choose one of these. All of these bags have top-zip closures, which if you ask me, is essential for plane travel. Plus, you can sling all of these over your shoulder, or you can carry on your arm. The best thing? These bags aren't TOO big, so they can double as a regular purse. You see? You're actually saving room. Good for you.

1. DVF Vintage Print Nylon Tote

4. Kipling Kyoko Sequin Large Tote
5. MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Python Tote
6. Kate Spade Cape Mountain Harmony Baby Bag
7. Louis Vuitton Totally MM Bag
8. Kate Spade Gold Coast Sierra Tote
9. MARC by Marc Jacobs Take Me Tote


  1. Was just thinking about posting about this too! Love the classic carry-ons! I'm also loving MK's new Python material, which I've also seen with Mr. Marc. lululemon also usually has a great selection of large totes with lots and lots of compartments--great for traveling and taking to the gym!


  2. umm, i'm kind of drooling over that #3 bag. just saying.

  3. Definitely a travel essential! I love the Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs xx

  4. I love no 4 and of course you can't go wrong with Louis Vuitton!

  5. I'm such a sucker for large bags like these. I tend to pack my whole life in my bag, so I'd probably use these for daily life and not just carry-ons. That's how I roll!


I love reading your comments...they're often the highlight of my day!
