The Weekender

Getaway! Recharge! Regroup! And do it in style.

Often times, all you need is a weekend away to gather your thoughts and clear your mind. Packing can be stressful and checking in your bag can be expensive these days… but at least it can be clean, simple, elegant.

The weekender bag is perfect for an overnight trip or a 48 hour getaway. Quick drive to the Four Season’s in Westlake Village? Heading up to Ojai Valley Inn? Catching a flight out to Cabo San Lucas? No problem. I’ve selected some of my favorite weekend bags for you to consider.

Packing close to nothing? If you’re going away for the night with your girls – you probably don’t need much at all. An oversized tote might be more than enough! This Salvatore Ferragamo get’s the party started soon with all that color. $1,250

Something I have started doing is packing my looks on the hanger. Yes, its really easy when it comes to unpacking. Who wants to spend their first hour putting everything away? Not me. So now, it takes minutes. This Kate Spade Bessie is really a garment bag. You can throw in your panties, a few looks, your bathing suit and be on your way. $298Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 4.40.30 PM

Tumi is a brand you know you can always count on for reliable travel bags and suitcases. So, it is no wonder I am so drawn to this item and think you should consider it.

It has surprisingly good space available for your clothes. $495.00

All leather – way chic. This Ghurka Cavalier II bag is really rather perfect. For my guys out there or my girls. its a universal bag that you can use for years.

I thick there are several bags from GHURKA you’d come across and think – “Yes, that is the weekend bag I have been looking for” $1,595
