Both Sean and I travel a fair amount for work – I spent last week in NYC and he’s just returned from DC – which means tiny commuter planes and carry on luggage only. His Filson was an anniversary present 2 years ago, my Dooney & Bourke weekender was an impulse purchase at the (amazing) Cabazon outlets in Palm Springs when I needed an extra bag for all my thrifted prizes. I use it constantly and LOVE it. It’s great size, easy to carry, sturdy canvas twill, made in the USA, and the inside is bright red with lots of pockets.
Other business travel essentials for me include a baseball cap to cover unruly travel ponytails, a lightweight scarf to hide in, more lip balm than you can shake a stick at, and driving mocs for extra comfort & security lane speediness. His input? Fun socks, a good travel shave kit so he doesn’t have to unpack his dopp kit when he gets home, a great magazine, and sunglasses to hide behind.
