The Weekend Getaway


I spent the weekend in Savannah, which is charming as can be. I’m here in Georgia until later tonight and built in an extra day and a half to just explore Savannah. There’s something really nice about traveling alone and wandering around with no real destination. River-walking and southern porch-gazing gave me plenty to do. I also discovered an amazing boutique – Sylvester & Co – that I wish were in Chicago. Since I couldn’t buy the entire store and bring it back with me, I opted for this book. I also debuted my new Lo & Sons Catalina Tote which is my solution to ditching the carry-on suitcase. I got tired of having to gate check all the time and wanted something I could fit under the seat if need be. This bag rocks – I packed for three days (even running shoes – notoriously clunky) and I still have room to spare. It’s coming with me for Memorial Day, too, which is insanely already this weekend!


This week’s pretty picks is all about the travel bag…the large and small that make going on the road a little easier and more chic.

Also a fan of this Kate Spade Saturday Small Weekender Bag (currently on sale!) // I really like canvas backpacks – this striped version by Baggu and the slightly larger twill snap from Everlane. // I got the Catalina in the charcoal and black color since I thought it would wear better with time. // Stephanie Johnson is the authority on making travel bags work harder for you. The Martha Briefcase has removable compartments and the tall handles make it very easy to hang up. // I have an irrational fixation with these Truffle pouches. They are perfect for storing the miscellaneous stuff in your purse. // EcoTools makes an awesome brush roll that comes with an even more awesome brush, under $10 for both. It fits 12 brushes, which is more than enough for travel (even for me!)
