Did someone say a girls getaway to Miami? Count me in! Last week the girls (Emily, Laurie and Cheralee) and I hopped on a plane escaping the hustle and bustle of the city to find ourselves sitting on the beach with Pina Coladas in hand. Since summer is here and Europe is next up on the itinerary, I have decided to share my best-kept secret to packing efficiently this vacation season.
I know traveling can be super stressful and gone are the days I lug around a huge, overpacked suitcase for a two-day trip – trust me I have learned the hard way!
Recently Cheralee and I discovered Lo & Sons Catalina Deluxe bag which made our traveling experience this past weekend an absolute breeze. The bag was big enough to fit literally all my 2 day essentials and was small enough to take it as carry on. No baggage to check in and no luggage to wait for upon arrival…
Impressed? I thought so.
The bag has proved itself for long distances trips too. Without a doubt, this will be my carry-on luggage while traveling to Europe. It fits perfectly into the baggage compartments. It also keeps my items organized and ready to go at all times. One of my favorite features is the bottom zipper pocket perfect for all of my shoes, toiletries or duty-free shopping space. It also has a bunch of interior and exterior pockets, perfect for storing essentials like sunglasses, underwear, and electronics.
An added bonus, it comes in a bunch of different colors so traveling in style is definitely not a problem.
My top packing tip: No need to pack a beach bag for your next holiday because the Lo & Sons Catalina Deluxe bag takes you from airport to beach instantly. I unpacked my bag once I arrived at the hotel, and simply swapped out my clothing and shoes for beach towels and sunscreen! Completely multi-functional and definitely a top travel essential for me.
Have a scroll through the pictures below showing how I packed and used my Catalina Deluxe during my trip to Miami! Safe and happy travels everyone!
