Many people find packing before a trip to be a hassle. But I have to say, I quite enjoy it. I love the anticipation that comes with packing, the excitement that builds as I plan out what I’ll need for my adventure. And I’ve become quite good at it, if I might say so myself. There was once a time when packing for a four-day long weekend to Florida involved six pairs of shoes, an endless assortment of sundresses, far too many bikinis and a few warm but bulky sweaters – you know, just in case. And all of this of course, required a much-too-large suitcase, which in retrospect, I realize was ridiculous for the short getaway. Since then, I’ve honed the skill of packing and once traveled to Hawaii, Australia and Los Angeles for sixteen days with nothing more than a carry-on suitcase. And I had everything I needed!
The key to smart packing isn’t just about the clothing you bring (or don’t bring!) but it’s about your accessories. The right luggage and handbags can really simplify things while you’re on the road. That’s why I love the bags and travel accessories available from Lug. Not only are they super-stylish (I love the candy colours!), but they’re incredibly practical, too. In all of their bags, you’ll find secret storage pockets in unexpected but totally necessary places and finding what you need while your hands are full at the airport will be pleasantly easy.
