This post is dedicated to all my fabulous lady friends who will be traveling to Disney in the next couple of months. (Sorry guys.) One of the biggest dilemmas I encounter every time I am about to travel to Disney is what kind of bag am I going to want to use every single day that I’m there?
I swear I end up buying a new one just about every time.
My main issues are:
- Will it fit my phone, my digital camera, a map, and my wallet?
- Is it easy to open on a moment’s notice?
- Does it match just about everything I’m wearing?
- How will it survive in the rain?
A random stop in American Eagle this past weekend led me to a slew of great bags that I thought might be perfect for a Disney trip. They were affordable, big enough to fit most of what you would need (especially since most of us use their phone as a camera as well) and they were adorable!
Here are a few of my picks:
Colorblock Crossbody | Price: $24.95 | Link
Okay, this one might be a little tiny but I love it as a bag you might want for the parks at night when you don’t need a lot, especially if you are heading to a bar or lounge later. It’s big enough to fit a SmartPhone, which is a big necessity these days.
Woven Crossbody | Price $24.95 | Link
Isn’t this one pretty? Dark enough to most likely not be affected by your jeans.
Zig Zag Crossbody | Price: $29.95 | Link
Because of the fabric, this choice might not be best in the rain… but I fell in love with it at first sight. It’s fun and cute and bigger than the other bags — so it leaves more flexibility for what you could carry around.
Can you tell I’m a fan of the crossbody? I just find it the most convenient (and comfortable) when a person is always on the move. The weight of the bag is evenly distributed and your hands are free.
And all of these are $30 and under. After making a huge investment in a vacation, the last thing you want to do is overspend when it comes to accessories.
One of my favorite shopping tricks is to take the amount spent on a item and dividing it by the times I use it. The closer I get to zero, the more confident I am in my purchase.
(This could also be a psychological thing. Do I need a 12-step program yet?)
I welcome anyone with bag tips to leave a comment below! I’m always anxious for recommendations!
