It’s no secret that I love to travel. I love seeing new places, exploring new cities, packing up, and just hitting the road. This past summer I had the opportunity to do an east coast road trip with my bestie and we hit up Washington DC, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, NYC, and Boston. That was seriously the trip of a lifetime and probably the longest I have ever been in a car. HA!
My next takes place at the end of this month!! My bloggy besties, Rebekah, Jenn and I are going to Las Vegas to see Maroon 5 on New Years Eve!! I could just die thinking about it I am so excited!! None of us has ever been to Vegas before so we are all #VegasVirgins!! Rebekah and I are flying out together and we will meet Jenn there.
While I was on the search for the perfect NYE outfit I found the perfect carryon to take on the plane with me from French Connection!! I love that it’s big enough to hold a change of clothes, my plane must-haves, and yet so super stylish!! I will still take a suitcase to check but this will be perfect to have just in case something happens to my bag. I have never lost a bag on a flight before but it would be just my luck that it would happen in Vegas and then I would have to go to the concert naked. HA!
The bag I chose is the Safia Holdall and is, unfortunately, not available anymore. I am so sorry because I wish everyone could have one of these gorgeous bags!! The leather is perfectly buttery and feels so soft to the touch. It is also HUGE and would be perfect for a weekend bag as well as a carryon! I am seriously thinking about getting it monogrammed too, I am from the south after all. LOL!!
While my bag is no longer available, here are a few others I am loving…
…I think this Riri Crackle Envelope Clutch would be perfect for any holiday party you have coming up.
…and I love this Ryan Zipper Clutch for everyday.
…and finally I love this Danny Crossbody. I have been obsessed with crossbody bags lately!
Have you shopped at French Connection lately??
Do you have a French Connection bag you love??

What a lovely carry on bag!!! This bag looks so soft and great to carry with you on-the-go or traveling, awww that so sad that this bag is no longer available. I wish we can still buy it because I would also love to get one too.
It’s too bad this one is moot available anymore. I love that one the best. I do love the cross body purses.

That’s a gorgeous bag! Why is it that the best looking items are always the ones that get discontinued. =(

That is such a nice-looking travel bag! I’m loving your other picks as well. That Ryan Zipper Clutch is really cool.
That bag is absolutely gorgeous. You will love Vegas. So much to see and do. My husband and I have been there 5 times and love it. I hope we get a chance to go again in 2016.
Enjoy your trip!
That is a very lovely bag. I think it looks classy and fashionable. Thanks for sharing.

What a lovely carry on bag. It’s simple, but very classy.
I love that bag. Too bad it’s not available anymore, I would love to have one! And I’ve never been to Vegas-I’m sure it’ll be so much fun!
I haven’t shopped at French Connection yet. That Danny Crossbody bag is so pretty and I love it. Going to send Santa a mail about it. :)
