This time of year, many of us are packing up our cars loaded with regular travel needs, our families, family pets, and this time around presents as well, and we’re hitting the road or heading to the airport. For our family, it will be a little different because we aren’t just traveling for the holidays. While our home is all in boxes, we are packing up our essentials to move out, stay in a hotel, stay with my parents, then off to North Carolina for another hotel until we move into our new home the first week of January. It’s going to be a bit stressful for sure, but we’re making the best of it. Normally I pack all of the kids in one suitcase, but the big kids are heading to my parents a little sooner than Chris, Wilder and I. Wilder needed his own travel bag this time around, and he’s lucky to be traveling in style with boho luxe home who graciously gave us a bag to help out with our travels this season. Also, I wanted to let you know that currently, all bags are 40% off at Boho Luxe Home with free shipping, and they’re kind enough to offer my readers an additional 10% off with code EXTRAORDINARY.

This bag is the perfect size to pack over a week’s worth of clothing for our little man. We can load it up with all of his essentials, and even toss his favorite book into the side pocket. We read this one over and over, and it was actually Sawyer’s favorite as well, and handed down from Sawyer.)
It would also make an awesome weekender bag. As we quickly approach the one year mark with Wilder, my days of nursing him will be coming to a close. At that time, I am planning to take more weekend getaways with to catch up with girlfriends, and I knew this bag would be the perfect piece for that. We’ll only be about 2 hours from Asheville, NC, and in all of my time in the Carolinas, I have never been there! I am already planning my first weekend away there… Of course, being so close, we’ll go as a family as well because Emmy wants to see the Biltmore Estate, home to the Serafina book series she loves.
The bag that I chose is the classic retro travel bag. This bag style features side flaps that clip down and give it that retro feel and help make it more compact, an exterior side pocket, and an interior zipper pocket.
My favorite part of this bag, aside from the convenient size and vintage inspired shape, is the print. The indigo shibori style pattern suits me perfectly, and actually suits the little man perfectly as well! He already has a shibori inspired crib sheet, swaddle blanket (not that he needs swaddling anymore…. sniff sniff!), and sleeper. You might say we are fans of the pattern and color.
The shibori pattern that I chose actually comes in a few different bag styles as well, so you can really have your own collection and there will be no mistaking your bags at the airport! There is even a tote which is perfect for every day use, shopping, library visits, or for using as a diaper bag. However, if you prefer to make a splash of more color when you travel, boho luxe home offers bags in more vibrant colors as well.
This bag is also the perfect size to fit a few blankets, plus baby, and still have room… although I don’t recommend you actually travel with your baby in a bag. I just want to make that clear!!!
Don’t forget to use code EXTRAORDINARY at checkout to receive an additional 10% off the current 40% off totes and travel bags promotion plus free shipping at Boho Luxe Home!!!!
