Summer inevitably brings on spontaneous trips that don’t involve a lot of planning. They’re exciting and a great way to reconnect to that thrilling feeling that came during childhood in between School years. Whether it’s a night away at a local hotel offering a great deal or an impromptu decision to drive a couple hours along the coast to a great vacation spot, I like to be able to get out of the house within an hour before the idea of actually doing it fades. Some of my favorite daytime purses are actually larger weekend bags that are perfect for these occasions. Big enough to fit the essentials for a different climate, but small enough so that it is easy to carry.
