Can you believe it’s already the last week of summer? I am so sad that my fave season is already coming to an end. BUT I am so excited because later this week I am headed on a girls roadtrip (courtesy of General Motors) for Labor Day with fellow blogger BFF, Cori Sue, of Bitches Who Brunch!
We have some exciting posts coming your way to recap our trip – and today marks the first one in this fun series. Hopefully you will find this post quite useful when packing for your end of summer travel plans and beyond!
First & foremost, I am absolutely in love with my new weekender bag from Sweet Tea Monograms. With adjustable straps, compartments inside and leather handles – this is my ideal weekender. It is functional and pleasing to the preppy eye for an end of summer road trip too, of course. I had the pleasure of breaking it in this past weekend on my Austin trip and it was the perfect carry-on bag for the plane too.
So what’s inside? Deets below! (Please excuse my mess, when I pack – I lay everything out and this post was no different….)
