Fridays are the best.
They get even better when they include a trip to the lake.
And that gets even better when you get to pack in cute luggage!
So it’s safe to say I’m going to have the best Friday ever. I’m headed off to the charming little town of Scott, Arkansas for boating, baby showers, and delicious BBQ.
For weekend trips to destinations in and around Texas, you can be sure to find me with 3 items.
My Jon Hart makeup case.
I received this darling makeup case as a graduation gift from my Aunt and Uncle, and I don’t think I’d be able to make do without it.
Scratch that. I absolutely could not make do without it.
The bag is made of leather and looks brand new after 2 years of use. HEAVY use. It fits all of my makeup and toiletries, along with a brush and straightener. So it’s no surprise that I take this thing everywhere.
Everyone knows it’s not a real graduation present unless it’s monogrammed. (If you’re from the South, that is.) Lucky for you, monograms are a staple of every Jon Hart piece.
The quality, customization, and style of Jon Hart bags have made this San Antonio based company the luggage preference of Texan collegiates, both girls and guys alike.

My Vera Bradley duffle bag.
This beauty was also a graduation present, this time from my Mimi. (I’m tempted to think graduation presents beat out most gift-giving holidays.)
She knows me well, and opted for the largest size. This means I can over-pack to my hearts desire, and I have yet to find it inadequate for a weekend getaway. The soft material, however, makes this bag easy to squish and stow in tight places.
In true Texas fashion, my all-knowing grandmother had the biggest monogram possible placed on it. Does that mean I get looks at the airport? Yes. Does it mean I have the cuter bag? Sure thing, :)

My cowboy boots.
No surprise here. Believe it or not, these serve a purpose other than a game day accessory. (Although I love that use.) Country-dwelling creatures that seem to be drawn to flavor ice loving, 5’2″ females, so I feel safer walking around the wild in shoes that offer a bit of a barrier.
I’m not claiming that it’s the peak of fashion, but I’ve been known to throw these on with Nike shorts and an oversized t-shirt for evening walks and 4-wheeler rides. Just throwing that out there.
There’s no reason why your travel accessories can’t fit right in to your sense of style. Mine certainly do, and I’m excited to make memories this weekend in the items they’ll carry.
Wishing you all safe travels and lots of fun this weekend, wherever you’re headed! Here’s to rest, relaxation, and hopefully a tan.
