Travel more..that was our new years resolution, and we are sticking to it! With some big plans on the horizon we have been on the hunt for a new carry on bag. Our budget keeps changing because we will save up money for a carry on, but then a new pair of boots catches our eye, or there is a sale at Bloomingdales! So through our epic search we narrowed it down to 5 bags that we think any fashionista would love no matter what your cash situation may be.
1. Reversible Vegan Leather Tote
We found this style at Nordstroms and Urban Outfitters and at only $48.00 it is a steal. It comes in a wide variety of colors like black, blush, plum, brown, grey, etc. The best part is that the inside and outside are different colors and it is reversible, so essentially you get 2 looks in one! We love the soft leather and the magnet closure. It makes for the ideal carry on because you can get in and out of it with ease. There is a bonus bag inside to store your passport and phone!
2. Printed Backpack
So essentially any backpack would be an ideal carry on bag, but we just fell in love with this printed bag from Free People. We are obsessed with the leather and textile mix along with the endless amounts of pockets and closures. It would definitely fit our magazines, camera, extra pair of shoes, snacks, and all of our other travel essentials. At $198 it is an investment, but you can't put a price on handmade and leather!
3. Leather Satchel
Madewell does it again with the Glasgow Satchel. It is the perfect weekender that can fit all of the things you can't leave home without. It comes in 4 colors and has a shoulder strap as well as sturdy handles. It can double as a purse which we love. At $198 it was at the top end of our budget, but it is worth every penny. You will definitely have this bag for a very long time, because it is made to last.
4. Catalina Canvas Bag
We found this canvas bag at Lo & Sons and fell in love. The extra compartment at the bottom is awesome, and we have already started to think of things to put in there like our shoes, hair dryer, or hat. The size is just right, and the canvas material makes it durable and sturdy. At $120 it is such a steal. It is machine washable and can easily store when you are not using it.
5. Printed Convertible Weekender
Okay so before we blow your mind take a look at the gorgeous pattern on this bag. We found this weekender at Kohls for a serious bargain price of $34.99. The floral pattern is so on point and comes in a light pink or baby blue. The straps are a blend of faux leather and canvas, and they are adjustable making the bag versatile and perfect for long trips. We want this bag in both colors because at $34.99 you can not go wrong.
There you have it, our picks for the best carry on bags no matter what your budget is. We love all of these and would buy them all if we didn't just blow our savings on 3 new Janessa Leone fedoras.
