Elaine Yu - Simply Chic Styling


As we prepare for an upcoming season of summer travel, I'm sharing my favorite bags that will take you from road trip to international airport terminal. This summer, my family has some fun trips planned to the Jersey Shore, an international city that's even busier than my beloved NYC (I'll believe it when I see it!), and a history-rich destination that will require lots of walking. When it comes to travel bags, functionality is key! Check out my favorites below.

Enjoy your travels and happy summer!


Beach Bag

Scout Bags Original Deano Tote, $40

I just purchased two of these for our beach trip to Ocean City, NJ. I like the open top so I can stuff towels, goggles, and sunscreen inside.


Away Travel Carry On, $225 - Available in 9 colors

A carry on rolling suitcase that's easy to maneuver and has it's own built in charging station. My favorite feature is the 360 degree wheels.


Lululemon City Adventurer Backpack, $98.

A perfect travel backpack that's not too small and not too big.

Crossbody Bag

Lululemon Festival Bag II, $68.

This is the second time I've purchased this bag for the summer. Fits a surprising amount of essentials and easy to wipe clean.
