I'm off to DC today. I've been trying to push aside my ever-growing wanderlust, but it's not going away anytime soon I think! While my trip to DC will be very much welcomed, it's going to be quick. As in working on the train down in the afternoon and then working on the train again first thing in the morning. (I spent all of my senior year spending every second possible in the city, and now here I am missing the District!)
Quick trips are the hardest to pack for. You can't really justify bringing a large bag. And, no matter how many days you're gone for, there's always a "fixed" amount of things you need. (As in, even if you're spending a week away or just one night, you'll need all your toiletries and pajamas and at least two outfits (right?), plus like... two pairs of shoes. Minimum. Okay, so maybe that's just me....
Finding the right bag is key. I'm the kind of person who needs restrictive space, because otherwise I overpack ridiculously. It's bad. Plus, I like to keep my bag with me (as opposed to checking it if I'm on a flight) and so I have to be able to carry it easily. Throwing a strap over my shoulder is the best.
Oh, and nine times out of ten, I have my laptop with me. ABC = Always Bring Computer.
I rounded up ten of the cutest and most versatile bags out there. Feel free to add your favorites in a comment!
