Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Its Home from.........We Go!

I love travel luggage. I love seeing people with nice hand travel luggage. Yes, that is a bit random, but hey ho! When I was younger and happened to be in an airport, I used to stare in fascination (as only children can do!) at everyone with their hand travel luggage.

Some people had small wheelies (the efficient, no fuss person), then some people had bags-you-carry luggage (the why pull, when you have arms to carry the luggage person). Personally, I prefer to carry the luggage I bring onto the plane, train etc. Why? Because I like things hanging out of me! Stupid me, yes?

What do you like to bring onto the plane etc with you? Small wheelie, large carry-on or just your normal bag or purse?

Anyway, I love large carry on's and I selected a few of my favourites. Lauren Conrad is my travel carry-on style icon!



Monday again! Where are the weeks going?

I love big bags... luggages... fabulous ones... =) They make me feel inspired to travel and see the world. Bags are really a staple because that's where you carry small piece of you when you go around... Among your favorites, my fave is that Louis Vuitton... Very classy... =) Who doesnt want to travel with such a masterpiece on your arms... right? =)

Marinka said...

that Urban Outfitters one is my favorite

Christie said...

LOVE the LV one - there is a super cute one that is done by Coach's new poppy collection, you should check it out :)

When possible I like to bring just carry-on luggage and I always travel with my large LV Speedy because it's so roomy and always helps make me feel a bit put-together amidst the chaos of travel :)

FashionJazz said...

Loved your post! Love the LV! Hope you are well and having a good Monday xxx

Mine looks almost identical to that Topshop bag! It was my mom's, so I'm not sure who designed it. It goes with everything! Since you can have two carry-on bags to the plane, I have my leather laptop bag and my red luggage with wheels. I do love that Orla Kiely luggage <3

Ohhh Lauren Conrad! I love her, and Yes I love travel bags too

Fashion Queen said...

I love Lauren's Goyard. If only my carry on were that fab. Frankly, I have to have wheels because my carry on is always packed and heavy!

And to reply to Style'n, I think it's a Goyard and a Balenciaga Giant City or Motorcycle Bag (on her shoulder).

I love that first one! It reminds me of a grannie bag lol :P

beewaits said...

I take my Lulu Guinness large tote or a large oversized black bag I got from Urban Outfitters years back...I don't do small bags, or wheels.

I have to say I'm really into the fourth bag form topshop, it's damn good.

Fernanda Lucila said...

I am the most inefficient packer!
So I have the wheelie lugagge and a carry on bag :P
If I could manage to pack only the bare essentials, I would definitely go for the all carry on.

Chas said...

I love the LV one. Their luggage stands up so well; the quality is the best.

Closet Fashionista said...

Cute!! I don't travel so I don't have travel luggage, but when I finally do I'd want the first Topshop one :D

StuddedLilly said...

i would love to just have a carry-all but i always end up overpacking so i'm actually stuffing more stuff in the carry-on than i should so i settle for a wheelie-yes, thats me haha but for short trip out of town, a huge tote will do :)

Lee Oliveira said...

Nothing better than a stylish carry on. I especially love guys carry on's (of course) I think it also has something to do with the fact that they remind me of weekend getaways.

I like to carry it too! It gets a bit hard to pull out and bring strollers out of the plane. Its so packed in there! At least with a carry in, you get in and you go!

I love Louis Vuitton when it comes to travelling ;)

kirstyb said...

Marie Z. said...

LC always looks fabulous! On the plane I carry my handbag as well as a backpack. A backpack is not very stylish but I can distribute all that weight evenly instead of lugging it on one side of my body : )

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...
