Our morning routine pretty much consists of the following:
wake up, check email on phone, read theSkimm, walk the dogs, make coffee, feed the dogs, pour cup of coffee and sit down at our desk, open laptop, check email again, then check Shopbop to browse the day’s new arrivals.
It’s been part of our a.m. routine since we can first remember developing our online shopping
addiction habit many, many moons ago. With dozens if not hundreds of new arrivals hitting shopbop.com each day, it’s like the olden days of flipping through page after page of your favorite catalogue.
And when the site has one of its MAIN EVENT sales (only happens twice a year!), we have no choice but to comb through hundreds of products trying to narrow down what we’re going to spend the bigger part of our paychecks on this season. But what better time to splurge on investment pieces? The more you spend, the more you save (up to 30% btw, which shaves off a hefty hunk of cash if you’re doing some serious shopping). Below, you’ll find all the things we’re loving for those of us who are always traveling.
Now’s a great time to pick up a quality suitcase like these carry-ons by Tumi, one of the leading luggage brands on the market. This one is also a great option, and its softer material will accommodate your overpacking habit. Looking for something more affordable? Check out this one by Flight 001 and this white one by Herschel Supply Co.
A CHIC PAIR OF FLATS
We’re all about a heel, but when your traveling and hauling your suitcase through the airport or walking around a city exploring, flats are the way to go. Pick up a classic pair by Aquazurra, Giuseppi Zanotti or Salvatore Ferragamo.
A WEEKENDER TOTE OR DUFFLE
Weekender bags are great for when you’re just jaunting off for a few days away. Meli-Melo makes a classic tote for this purpose in this rich cognac or black. We also love this chic version by Clare V., and this one for a more casual look.
The sneaker trend doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, and we’re not mad about it. We love this pair with its gold detailing, these slip-ons by Vince (which also come in black) and you can’t go wrong with this classic OG pair by Converse.
A BEACH BAG THAT WILL GO WITH EVERYTHING
Pick up one of these beach bags and plan your winter escape to somewhere warmer.
A CASHMERE TRAVEL BLANKET
If we could recommend only one item for the stylish traveler, it would be one of these cashmere travel wraps by White + Warren. Wear it as a scarf, a wrap, or, more importantly, use it as a travel blanket to keep you from freezing to death on those flights that feel like they’re circulating sub-zero air. 💨❄️⛄️
