Goal no. 18 on my 101 in 1001 list is to invest in grown-up luggage. With trips to Charleston (I leave today!), upstate Connecticut, Saint Martin (just booked!), and hopefully Europe on the horizon, you can tell where my head’s at. How many times have you packed in a giant tote bag for a weekend trip? Or hauled a duffel bag with a broken strap through airport security? I think it’s high time to invest in a nice suitcase that will hold up on weekend getaways and international expeditions alike for many years to come.
Perhaps a chic leather duffel bag that will only get better with age?
A few of the lines that seem like they’re worth investing in are Bric’s, Globe-Trotter, and Steamline Luggage. (If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a bargain, this is it.) I would love to know who makes your favorite luggage, when you invested in a new set, and how it’s held up over time. I’m so excited to share all my upcoming travels with you on the blog and on Instagram (keep an eye on my ever-evolving travel guide for packing lists and new favorites!).
