Vegan Weekender Bags

22 Oct

I have to travel a lot for work.  It’s not something I like to do, but it’s necessary and luckily it’s not a regular thing but more of a seasonal thing.  My road work can include flying to other cities for business meetings or doing long road trips and teaching seminars.

My hubby and I have also within the past few months have gone on a few weekend trips, which has been great.  It’s fun to explore a city just for a day or two and then return home.  It’s like a mini-vacation, which is great for my psyche considering the hours I work.  Sometimes a small break from Brooklyn is all I need to stay sane.

I’m super organized when it comes to traveling and with the holiday’s coming up soon as well as some business travel that must be done in December and January, I’m already starting to think about what needs to be done prior to.  You can see my last OCD business trip packing frenzy by clicking here.

My last weekend trip with my husband I realized we really don’t have a good “weekender” bag.  We have my carry-on rolling suitcase I use for extended business trips, but sometimes that’s too much for a quick weekend trip where only a change or two of clothes is needed.  It’s also too much for a quick overnight business trip as well.  I could easily get away with a smaller duffel bag and a purse.  I’m one of those rare women who actually packs light.  It’s funny, on many of the business trips I go on (in my male dominated industry) I actually pack less than the men.

Surprisingly enough, there are a lot more vegan weekender bag options out there than I had thought.  Here’s what I found quick on a quick Shopstyle search.  The bag on the bottom right is a Rachael Zoe for QVC bag I had seen a while ago and really liked.  All in all, I don’t think I could go wrong with any of these options.  I’m leaning towards one of the bottom three.  Which one do you think I should go with?


What sort of bag/luggage do you pack your items for a short, 1-2 day trip in?
