The perfect travel bag from Longchamp

I love Geneva. I love it enormously and call it home. But, no matter how much I love it... I also love a little getaway.

I don’t know about you, but for my part, I am a meticulous lightweight packer. My family always laughs at the fact that my bag is ready two weeks in advance... I swear it’s true!! The only “finishing touch” I put to my packing is my toiletry bag.

When it comes to my choice of hand luggage, I have been loyal to Longchamp for as long as I can remember. Why? Because I love their bags.

Longchamp bags are lightweight, practical, pretty, stylish and timeless. I have had these two bags for ages (15 years, if memory serves me well), but they still look brand new. For me, a Longchamp is truly the best travel handbag for a long weekend or for a lightweight traveller like me.

Longchamp tote bags are practical because they can be folded to fit in your luggage or in your wardrobe when not in use.

As the trip season has started with the arrival of spring (at least for me), I thought I would write a little post on these multi purpose bags that have been great companions to me for so long...

I had Sweetheart take a few photos of me before my trip so that you can see the two bags.

The large size (orange).

The smaller size (I take this green bag when I go swimming: it holds everything I need).

Finally, the good news…These bags are not costly, they are pretty reasonably priced, considering their great quality.

Spring has definitely sprung!


It goes without saying that this post is not sponsored, like all my blog posts. It’s just me sharing tips... You are welcome!

  1. Lovely travel bags: light, young, colorful!
    Lately, I've come to prefer carry-on travel bags, the ones with a telescopic handle. This type of travel gear makes things easier for me.

  10. Happy Spring! It looks as if the weather is very nice where you are.

    Yesterday was the first warm day we have had in New York in a very long time. Hopefully this will continue.

    I am happy that you have found such nice bags :)

  13. I have a navy color one myself...it took me too long to get one and like you, I just love it. It's practical and fits so well with so many outfits. : ) We just got back from a vacation to the UK and would you believe I left my bag (the navy longchamp) somewhere for over an hour w/o realizing! There is a happy ending, luckily...we found it but what a scare!

    1. I can not wait to read your adventures in the UK. Did you visit Peggy Porschen Cakes and Crosstown Doughnuts?

    2. I should have asked for your expert recommendations before heading to London. We did not go to these places and I'm sure I missed out! We did have tea at Fortnum & Mason; I am in love with the place. : ) Happy Easter to you!

    3. Hahaha...I'm not an expert, but I know you would have loved these two cake shops. I love Fortnum's.

  14. De facto, as malas, são mesmo ultra práticas, leves... e cabem em qualquer lado... ideais para umas escapadinhas de fim de semana... ou para algumas coisas que no decorrer de uma viagem mais longa, desejemos ter à mão!
    Adorei as fotos! As flores por aí, estão lindas... já se respirando Primavera!... E adorei o look e os acessórios! O conjunto fio/colar é bem ao meu gosto... intemporal... e fica sempre com tudo!
