i’m pretty much a wimp about flying on planes (it just doesn’t seem right to sit in a chair in the sky) but i love most things about traveling: luggage, comfy scarves, meeting new people, eating snacks i wouldn’t normally eat at home. so when i fly i tend to focus on something new to keep me distracted from the plane part, and that’s usually a small gift for myself. it’s like my non-pregnant version of a push present. for my last trip it was my new yellow simple diary, and for my trip to salt lake (come say hi at the keynote breakfast if you’re attending!) this month i’m aiming for a new bag.
normally everything in my life is overtly girly, but when it comes to travel bags i tend to lean towards things that are classic and what some would call “handsome” (throw in a preppy monogram and i’m in heaven). so when i saw this leather bag from travelteq i was instantly smitten. it’s the perfect combination of sophisticated and chic, but not overly pattern-filled or colorful. tie a cute scarf around it (like this one) and you’re set! if you’re looking to upgrade your luggage this year, check out travelteq’s bag right here- it’s a lovely way to keep your laptop, papers and magazines in order.

*this guy isn’t cheap (around $518 american) but if you’re investing in a leather piece to keep for years it might be worth the splurge.
