It is starting to feel like spring is here and let me be the first to say that I’ve had cabin fever all winter. I decided to ditch the colder weather and head to Las Vegas to enjoy a spring break. As I began to buy my warm weather wardrobe, I found myself wondering if I could actually fit everything I wanted to bring in my suitcase. I am a severe over-packer (although, what woman isn’t?). I tried to pack light, but eventually had to narrow it down to the essentials.
The first thing I decided I couldn’t live without was my Dakine travel bag. Dakine makes amazingly useful bags that feature the cutest prints. First of all, I love their travel kits. I opted for my Dakine Prima because it was small enough to fit in the suitcase but still allowed me to pack and organize all my toiletries, and let’s face it, Vegas is the one place where I will probably want to use ALL my makeup. I love the removable clear compartment which is TSA-approved, making traveling so much easier…no little plastic baggies everywhere! I easily fit my make-up, shower items, and hair products in this bag. I chose this style but Dakine has many other functional and cute styles such as the Diva and the Alina.
When I got to Vegas, I was shocked to find out how much walking I actually did. I realized that my Sanuk flip flops were life savers. It can be hard to find a flip flop that is comfortable to wear all day but these were amazing. The Sanuk Yoga Mat was my shoe of choice. It is unbelievably squishy and is made with actual yoga mat material. It was the perfect fit for warm weather and lots of walking.
I opted for a small cross body bag in lieu of my huge purse, and I was definitely glad I did. Not only was it easier on my shoulders, but it seemed as though I had stumbled upon a huge vacation fashion trend. Almost everyone in Vegas seemed to have one! I love that there are so many styles to choose from. I tend to love something a little more fashion forward such as the Minnetonka Fringe Bag or the Steve Madden BJosie. If you want to go more casual pick the Sherpani Piper or the Dakine Jive. Any of these bags will keep your things close and safe and add an element of style to your outfit.
With spring here and summer fast approaching, I plan on traveling quite a bit. I may be headed up to the mountains to enjoy a some spring skiing, or maybe I’ll head to the beach to have some fun in the sun.
