Next month the sweet boyfriend and I will be on our way to the warm tropical beaches of Mexico for our yearly vacation. When it comes to traveling out of the country I usually keep it pretty basic, leaving the Louis Vuitton keepall‘s at home. To me the traveling experience of going internationally (south of the boarder) is much different than traveling domestically for many reasons – Not so much traveling to Mexico, but on the way home I feel like they check your bags every 10 minutes, plus (I know this may sound a little snobby of me) I don’t like it when people with dirty oily hands touch my new-ish, un-aged, still light Louis Vuitton leather. Plus there’s always the fear of a completely booked plane and the chance than my bag will be randomly selected to be placed with the checked luggage or stuffed in one of the overly crowded compartments and someones soda bottle exploding (never happened to me before but I’ve seen this happen). So for those reasons alone, I reserve my Louis Vuitton luggage for domestic travels, first class flights or road trips.
My two carry-on luggage pieces that I use when going abroad: a Diane von Furstenberg duffle bag and Heys Luggage. I’ve used those for years and if I was to add another into the mix it would be this Dolce & Gabbana Leopard Print Suitcase. Nothing says jetset chic to me than an animal print travel bag – rawr! If you’ve read any of my previous posts then you know how much I love my animal prints. Slight obsession there. I know not everyone shares my liking for this print, or rather they’re just picky about it. A couple of my friends have told me that they love animal prints, but just not when it’s in your face, over the top. And this one being completely made of shades of grey, I think it’s something they would like.
The body of this suitcase is made of incredibly durable scotch-grain. Which would leave me worry-free when traveling internationally.
