I’m fanatical about travel attire. There is nothing worse than going on vacation and hating all your outfits and being uncomfortable. Let’s just say it can ruin your trip…I’ve been there (I wrote about ithere). My outfits and accessories must work well for a variety of activities. So, when Nordstrom asked me to check out their M Z Wallace bags, I was super excited about what I found. And you all know I only share things that I love. 🙂
M Z Wallace has a small and large ‘Metro’ tote. The small tote was perfect for all my stuff. Look at everything I was able to fit in the small tote! I even fit their small crossbody bag inside to pull out when I didn’t need to carry the tote. I put all of my essentials in the crossbody, like my lipsticks, Altoids, boarding pass, cash, credit cards and id. All the stuff that I always seem to lose at the most important times, like in the security line -ha! My only regret…I wish I had gotten the large tote.
All my other travel bag straps are hard and somewhat cumbersome. I once carried a crossbody travel bag that had no padding and I swear it gave me a headache for the first part of the trip -ha! But with the padded straps of the M Z Wallace tote, I didn’t have to worry about it! I also love the classic black quilted design and the extra padding it provides for the goods inside. Plus, the material disguises all the dirt you will inevitably pick up on the floor of the airport, under the airplane seat and in the overhead bin.
On our way to Durango from Albuquerque, we stopped in Santa Fe to eat and shop. But, you know what I did not want to carry around Santa Fe? My computer and chargers etc., so I loved that I was able to pull out mycrossbody! I love this trick!Not to mention, the gold chain adds a little umph to my outfit, no?
