One of the greatest things about traveling for
I have spent time in multiple airports, several unique cities and many train stations over the past 3 weeks and I wanted to show you the over-riding travel styles that I noticed over and over and OVER again both here in the US (Colorado Springs, Denver and New York) as well as in Switzerland (Montreux, Luzerne
I feel like you can purchase any of the things here with complete confidence that they will be considered “current” for several more years at least and many of them can definitely be purchased in a classic style making them a wardrobe staple.

For handbags I’ll tell you what I didn’t see- I didn’t see ONE belt bag. Not one. I could be wrong, but I’m thinking that short trend may be on the way out (and to be honest, I wouldn’t be at all sad about that. Do you guys like those?). I saw lots of cross-body bags and a lot of chain detailing everywhere. Another thing that I found surprising was that there were so many of the cute, add-on, bag details. From large poms to charms and tassels, that’s definitely something everyone seems to be loving.
Does this match the travel styles you see in your city in the late winter and early spring? I’d love to hear about it. If there was a job for people watching my financial future would be secure for sure, lol.
We are back in Colorado and it’s still pretty cold with warm sunny days intermixed. I am really ready for Spring this year, so I’m hoping to be showcasing sandals and dresses on the blog stat!
Are you shopping for any sale items for fall and winter now- or do you go strictly by season ?
