When I travel, I have to mentally prepare myself to pack lighter, and most importantly, to carry light for day. When you’re trekking through a city, hopping on subways and buses, and trying to see (and eat) as much as you possibly can, carrying only the essentials is … well … essential. And I suck at that. I generally carry a bag the size of a house, and I’m prepared for everything and anything. Seriously, I’m the girl with the tissues, powder, sunblock, chapstick, bandaids, antibacterial, bobby pins, hair ties, back-up nail polish, makeup removing pads, candies, power bars, eye drops, and every over-the-counter medication you an think of. But not when I travel … or so that’s the plan. On our honeymoon, I carried my Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. bag nearly everywhere, but I’ve had my eye on these adorable (and colorful) mini crossbody bag options for summer.
