As we all know, July and August are the peak months of vacations around the world, especially in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore, I want to dedicate my next few blog posts to our favourite holiday season.
My travel handbag – THE centre piece of my ensemble…
After deciding which bag I’d take with me, then I’ll start packing my outfits to suit this ‘main feature’.
There are at least three major elements I look for when it comes to choose a travel bag, after all, I normally only take one day time bag with me on a trip, so it really matters.
My three MUSTS are:
1) Size – So my DSLR camera; pocket camera; a small make up bag; a pair of sunglasses; a pair of glasses; my purse; my smart phone and sometimes even a map and/or a bottle of water… Need to ALL fit in! Cut the long story short, I need a size-able handbag like this mustard yellow one I took to Paris with me in 2011.
2) Colour – Bright and strong – It’s a statement!!!
3) A cross-body bag – After my experience of been robbed under day light in the street of an European capital city, this kind of design became essential!
