The next 6 months of my life involve a lot of traveling. Like, a lot. Between our honeymoon, my bachelorette weekend, a girls trip with my mom and sister and a couple other trips, I'm going to be on a plane at least once a month from now until September 🙈

So, it stands to reason that I'm going to become somewhat of an expert in packing a bag. My birthday and Christmas fall within about 3 weeks of each other. Pretty much all I asked my family for was assorted leather goods for traveling, including three of the items in this post. I'm kind of a bag hoarder, but it all makes sense to me when I go to pack for a trip because I love being able to organize all the things in different carriers. Makeup, accessories, toiletries, jewelry, odds and ends - everything has its right place. 

I know most people dread packing for a trip, but I actually look forward to it. I almost see it as a challenge for how organized and functional I can make my bag. While I'm a little overwhelmed with all the upcoming travel, I'm looking forward to using my new goods and keeping everything in just the right place!
