We just returned home, late last night. This morning, I’m thinking two things; mountains and travel. Missing the mountains, madly, already. And, phew, roundtrip with rowdies – we made it. Travel is multi-layered for me. I love planning and prepping for it, and I love it when I get there. The actual traveling from here to there, a to b, is not my favorite.
For this trip I loved taking along my new Susan Ziptop Crossbody from fashionABLE. I’ve been searching for a black crossbody for awhile now, and when I found out my fave fashionABLE had designed two new crossbody styles I knew that would be the one for me.
This bag was perfect for the actual traveling and the trip. I never like to carry a regular sized purse when I travel (I always pack it). I’ve found the best thing to carry on is a big bag (this is a fave) and smaller bag along with it (either a wristlet type pouch or a crossbody like this). The Susan Ziptop Crossbody was perfect to sling across my shoulders and it easily tucked into my bigger travel bag, when needed. I keep my electronics, books, travel scraf/blanket, and so on in my bigger bag. And, in my smaller bag, anything I need to have accesss to quickly.

I make the most of my space, keeping the essentials like my liscense, phone, breath mints, earbuds, stress away oil, lip gloss, and a little cash in my crossbody. Ready for the reach, in an instant. And, I let my bigger bag carry everything else.
The crossbody also worked out perfect during our trip. Who wants to carry around a giant bag on the go, and while carrying around toddlers in your arms?
What about you? Do you have a system for what you carry on and carry along when you travel? I’d love to know.
PS- fashionABLE is my fave because each product is handmade by women in Africa, creating sustainable business. Through your purchase you are ABLE to provide opportunity, and a woman is ABLE to have a new choice.
