Prada Saffiano LV Zippy Whats In My Bag - Travel

Prada Saffiano & Nikon DSLR 5100 - Whats In My Bag Travel Edition

Prada Saffiano LV Zippy What's In My Bag Travel Edition

The Bag: Prada Saffiano Lux Tote (double zip)

[1] Prada Saffiano Tote – medium black
[2] Forever21 scarf
[3] Forever New zip pouch & passports
[4] Vintage, Hotsy Totsy & Adorne accessories
[5] Ray Ban mirrored aviators
[6] Phone
[7] Louis Vuitton Monogram Zippy wallet & Martha Stewart notebook

The medium Saffiano tote is a great travel bag in my opinion. I originally agonised for a long time over which size to purchase – the small, medium or large – and ultimately chose this size for versatility and durability. It perfectly holds everything you see, including my DSLR camera and 35mm lens. The snap button sides makes it perfect for expanding when you need extra room. I could have fit in a few more items, like my iPad, but kept it light for fear of my arm dropping off.

When it comes to travel, I’m a minimalist on the outside, complete hoarder on the inside. I like to keep my handbag clutter free and easily accessible, then jam and cram everything else into my carry on. I find it’s the most effective way to go. This way I can whip out passports and tickets one-handed from my handbag, and direct children through security with my eyes closed (well, almost). But should the unthinkable happen, everything I need is in my carry on. Makeup, wet wipes, kids clothes, kitchen sink. It’s all there. Let us just pray we never have to open the carry on, for it may never close again. Amen.

I’d love to know, what do you carry with you? Are you a minimalist, or do you like carry everything?

    I like to keep it light but then I find an excuse to stuff everything in. I usually develop muscles after a week of traveling hahaha

    This is a fabulous post! I love these types of posts. And that bag is just amazing! I’m definitely a bag girl myself. Except I always seem to have so much stuff in my bag. That I think that I’ve developed some nice arm muscles. xx gig

    My bag is normally my home, but I am trying to stop bringing everything. Aside from it is heavy, I am tired of having too many pouches inside. how I wish I can be a minimalist! GIG

      That’s funny because I did the exact same thing. I emptied out my usual wallet, and left it and most of be cards I wouldn’t be using at home. It was kinda nice to be clutter free for a little while – I have SO MANY cards πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for sharing. Basically what you got inside your bag for traveling is the same with me. But I usually didn’t bring accessories when traveling.

    This is great! My traveling bag is a mess! Full of wipes for the hands, for the face, antibacterial… maybe its because my trips are mostly 16 hours long! :S

      The best advice I can give for photos is practice, practice, practice! It doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have, you can learn to make the most out of it and get some amazing results!

    That bag is divine! Love how organised your travel bag is too, you’ve got all the essentials right there. The zip pouch is a fab idea for important things like the passport and I am a Ray Ban lover from way back xxx

    I have a similar Saffiano by Prada, but it’s the one without the zip. Man, it can hold a lot of stuff! Just wondering, do you find it difficult to bring it for travelling though given that it only has top handles?

      Surprisingly enough, it traveled really well. It comes with an over the shoulder strap, which I only used once. I read many horror stories of overusing the shoulder strap and the bag not coping so well. It held everything I needed and wasn’t too difficult to carry πŸ˜€
