Filed In: On the Hunt
I’m off to NYC today on a business trip! I’ve only been to NYC twice; once to visit a friend that was interning there one summer, and once with my family during Christmas. It’s been about seven years since I’ve been there and my visit this time will be very different from my other visits because it’s for work and I will be there by myself. However, I decided to stay through the weekend and my husband will be meeting me up there on Friday, so we will have some time to explore the city together!
While I was thinking about packing, I realized that I didn’t have a good tote to carry my laptop and other necessities! So I went on the hunt for one. While browsing tote bags, I looked for ones that were at lease 15″ wide and would fit my computer. I also looked for a cross body or over the shoulder strap and a snap or zipper for closure. Since I don’t travel that often for work, I wanted one that would be a good fit for my non-work travels as well.
These were my favorites! I ended up going with the Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B. Tote in pale grey. I got it when Nordstrom was having a sale and think it was the perfect choice!
Look chic while staying comfortable in slip-on sneakers this Spring Break! They are perfect for traveling when you don’t have room to pack your tennis shoes and need a shoe that won’t make your feet ache while running through airports, shopping, or taking tours.
The Sperry Topsiders come in several colors and won’t break the bank at $60. I, of course, want to go a little less practical with the Sam Edelman leopard sneaker or Tory Burch metallic sneaker. :) Leopard is totally a neutral in my book.
What shoes do you like to travel in?
I love the look of fold over totes. They are very versatile with easy access to an outside pocket and the ability to wear it crossbody or around the wrist.
Lace up wedges can give a casual outfit a little edge. Check out these wedges if you want to spice up your skinny jeans and sweater.
My sister just bought these!
I’m starting my blog off with a series I’m calling “On the Hunt.” I always have conversations with friends that go along the lines of, “I’m on the hunt for a (insert obsession here).” So I’ll be posting my finds for particular items to make all of our lives easier.
Right now, I’m on the hunt for a backpack. Not a backpack that you would go backpacking or hiking with, but more of a chic, purse backpack. These are perfect for going to and from work and for traveling, and they can fit most of your electronics!
I’m obsessed with the Steven Alan Clemence backpack!
