All The Bags We’re Loving for Spring + Summer

Packing for Mexico City was like training camp for figuring out what I’m most into for spring and summer this year. The forecast called for daytime temps in the high seventies and as I sit here now in my layers of clothing including an oversize waffle sweater I can still remember what it felt like to bask in the heat while lounging on our hotel balcony.

The Best of Carry-Ons and Weekend Bags

Whether you’re jetting off for spring break or planning your summer jaunt abroad, it’s definitely travel season.  (And I am definitely jealous of all of your fabulous trips!)  After our first train-hopping trip together through Europe where we schlepped around giant suitcases for two+ weeks, Aaron and I made a pact that whether it’s two weeks sightseeing in China or a 5 day stint in the caribbean, we always pack into a carry-on bag.  If we need to do laundry, we do– and we almost always do– but it’s so …
