10th Commandment: June 29

Jun 29, 2012

 

Afternoon Excursion Bag (Modcloth, $60)

A bit of a modified 10th Commandment today.  Partially because I spent so much time working on yesterday’s packing posts that I put off today’s posts until last night.  Given all the was going on yesterday, this was a grave miscalculation on my part.  But you deserve something to perk up your morning.

I’ve had a number of queries about overnight bags, so when I spotted this duffle, I thought it would make a good suggestion.  Not too big, not too small, a Goldilocks bag that’s perfect for a night away from home.  Plus, it has a stylish, low-maintanence look that I really like.

    Great find. I love bags that look more expensive than they actually are!

    I love that this bag is also a bit masculine…always a bonus when travelling with a significant other. Don't get me wrong, I love to see a guy schlepping a huge, pink Vera Bradley for his lady but I feel like this bag is just so much nicer at a great price point! By the way – fantastic posts yesterday Belle! I'm sure they took a lot of time and it's much appreciated 🙂

    Love the bag, also liking the R and Em one in cream on the shopstyle link.

How to Survive the Blistering Heat

We had a wet spring, followed by a mild May and June. So I was not at all prepared for the triple digit heat that hit the Pacific Northwest like a freight train this week. Instead, I just feel lucky that we had any nice weather at all. But existing when it’s this hot is […]
