take me away: perfect luggage

I have a fun trip planned for this weekend. I'll be traveling to Chicago, a city I've never been to {already making progress on my 101 in 1001!}, and I could not be more excited! I can't wait to see the sites, eat some deep dish, and, of course, spend time with my friends.

I took this as a chance to get some new carry-on luggage since the one I currently have is a bit heavy. I had a hard time choosing between weekender duffles and spinner carry-ons though. Duffles tend to hurt my shoulders, but I'm beginning to think that having one of these pretty things would make up for that pain.

As much as I love all of those duffles, I gave myself a budget of $100. My mom suggested going to TJ Maxx because they have a pretty large selection of luggage. Luckily, there's one close to my apartment so I headed over and walked out with one that I really love!

The London Fog suitcase is so similar to what I purchased. I absolutely love the print! The Deux Lux weekender is calling my name though. How pretty is the combination of stripes and gold sequined sides?

What do you use for your weekend getaways?


  1. I love the luggage picks, I've been searching for the right one for a while! Have fun in Chicago-- its the best city ever and you'll have so much fun!! (I'm not bias because I live here or anything!) :)

    Great blog, I love your style!

  2. Great Luggage picks. My favorite weekend is a LV my parents got me in college--it is so durable--and works as a carry on on most airlines! I also love the Longchamp, although I think without the structure, clothes would really tend to lose their shape in it. Happy Thursday!!!

  3. What a great post! I LOVE that leather duffle! I just received a Jon Hart Design duffle for Christmas, it's the perfect size. Also swear by my Longchamp bag, it's so easy to throw folded up into my suitcase and if I purchase a few things, then I can just unfold it and use it. Such a genius idea! xox

  4. Love a great duffle. Love all your options! I have a J. Hulme duffle + use it all. the. time.
    Have a great weekend in Chicago- such an amazing city!
