Take Me With You


After getting back from my NYC getaway I realized that I am in dire need of a travel bag. Not so much a weekend bag as it would be a “put-all-my-random-crap-in” bag. I have never been one of those girls that travel lightly — thank you, mom — and I need a bag that I can carry on the plane or fit easily in the car without a hassle. Now I know this would not be hard to find. However, I have one requirement for this bag. It must.be.organized. I cannot have any more bags that become bottomless pits. Yes, they are great but I already have one that I bring to work. When I travel I need to know where everything is at all times; phone, passport/boarding pass, iPad, magazine, snacks etc. Everything needs a home, if you ask me. Otherwise, it will get lost and go into the black abyss never to be seen again (until I empty my bag once i return home). Pointless, right? Therefore, I need a bag with pockets, zippers, you name it- i need it.

One of my dear friends was recently telling me about how she scored a LO & SONS bag for Christmas. I immediately started giving her the third degree about her bag. How many pockets? Can I fit blah, blah, and blah inside? Is it heavy? What colors does it come in? If i put blah in, can I still fit blah? Is it waterproof? You get the idea. I was extremely intrigued. She continued to rant and rave about how great her bag was and all of it’s amazing compartments. I think at one point she even said “this is the best bag ever created” which I thought was pretty solidifying. Not to mention, the bag looks amazing and oh so classy. They’re price tag is a little hefty ($295) but my LO & SONS gal swears by it and promises it’s worth the price. Does anyone else have one of these bags and can attest to my friend’s review? I would love love loveeee to hear more about the bag… or any other bags for that matter!!! I seriously need help picking one out… and soon! Never know when my next impromptu weekend trip might be!

I figure since the holiday season is upon us, everyone should be doing some shopping. After all, there is always time for more shopping! Right now is a great time also because from what I have experienced, the malls aren’t chaotic yet so you can still find a parking spot and things are not picked over quite yet. Don’t wait much longer or else you may find yourself in a predicament… and a traffic jam.

For this week’s “Currently Coveting” I decided to pick out a few things that I have seen while creating my annual online shopping lists. Im really loving the Madewell Lily Lace Dress in that bright red color. It would be paired great by itself and some chunky jewelry or causal it down with tights, booties and sweater on top. However, my favorite thing on the list right now is this Lo & Sons bag. It is perfection. The price tag is a little hefty for a simple bag so I am going to hold off for right now.Patience is a virtue? Although, I have been reading many reviews on it and it seems like the perfect travel/overnight bag.  Side note: the army green color is a lot lighter in person.

What have y’all been finding this holiday season?

Hope you have a great Tuesday!!
