Hard to believe, but the start of holiday season is just a few short weeks away. This year we’ll be traveling to see our families and friends in Texas and Missouri, and I can’t wait for quality time together and celebrating over feasts of delicious homemade food! Come November 27, we’ll be braving the airport like everyone else, and I’ve already been thinking about how I can make our holiday travels as smooth as possible.
So I was excited when one of my favorite brands, Lo & Sons, sent me their Catalina bag for my travels. I’ve raved about their O.M.G tote before—a perfectly stylish, versatile tote for work that I use for carrying essentials and my laptop. The Catalina is a canvas weekender and surprisingly large. Compared to most duffle-style bags, this one is deep—meaning you can stack layers upon layers inside. I’d say it has just as much room, if not seemingly more, than a standard carryon suitcase. It also has a great compartment along the bottom for shoes.
Instead of waiting until the very last minute to pack for holiday trips, I got ahead of the game and planned all of my holiday outfits—for casual family lunches, festive parties, shopping outings, and cozying up by the fire. And guess what? They all fit in the Catalina! The key to holiday packing is about choosing versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched a number of ways for different looks.
