Some people say you are what you eat. While I whole-heartedly agree with this statement, I also think it can be said that you are what you carry. Learning to pack light was one of the greatest travel lessons I ever learned. Rolling luggage is great for longer trips that require more stuff (and heavier luggage), but a weekender bag is perfect for weekend getaways where packing light is much easier to accomplish. I also love the idea that you can carry a weekender bag across your shoulder, allowing you to easily climb a few flights of stairs or hop aboard a train quickly and smoothly.
I've put together a selection of several "weekender bags" that I think are not only functional, but look great! With a bag like this, you'll not only have everything you need, you'll look classy and smart while you travel. Scroll through the images below to take a look.
Do you have a "go-to" weekender bag that you use? If so, what does it look like and what do you love about it?
