There are countless reasons to love the summer season—sunshine, long days, beach time, and fun outfits, to name a few. Personally, my favorite things about summer are the vacations and weekend getaways. It’s the time of year when OOO responses are plentiful and summer Fridays are celebrated, with people taking some much-deserved time for themselves to turn off and relax. It’s also the time of year when we’re forced to reexamine our luggage assortment. Most of us have the big-suitcase category covered, but that doesn’t lend itself well to a shorter weekend getaway. Nobody wants to be that friend who shows up to the Airbnb with their rolling suitcase, which I can admit I’ve been guilty of in the past. Enter the weekender bag.
A weekender bag is the perfect size to pack everything you need for two days away while being compact enough to fit in any packed car or train with ease. If you’re anything like me, you’ll inevitably still overpack it, but at least, it will fit seamlessly into your car without garnering any dirty looks from your friends. With so many cute options available right now, I thought I’d do us all a favor and gather the best ones to share here.
