Yesterday I hopped on a plane to visit my sister in Salt Lake City for a few days. With me I brought a new weekender bag – it’s my new favorite travel accessory!
In the past, I’ve traveled with a tote bag or computer bag as my “personal item” but never a weekender. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get one, it’s slightly larger than a tote bag and the perfect size for a quick getaway or a carry on.
I prefer canvas as a material since it’s durable and washable. This one is has a flat bottom and is the perfect size for stuffing under the plane seat in front of me.
The perfect carry on weekender bag has a compartment for my laptop, space for toiletries and a spare set of clothing, and also a flap that attaches to the suitcase handle and sits on top for rolling through the airport.
I love this bag so much I just had to share. It comes in several patterns, but I also rounded up several more stylish weekender bags.

I’m also shopping for a new suitcase, right now I use a rolling Swiss Gear expandable carry on for domestic travel (I usually check it for international travel), but it’s showing signs of wear and tear so I’m thinking of choosing the hard case style for my next suitcase. Opinions? Do you have a favorite suitcase that you swear by? Do you prefer the soft side or hard side style for travel?
