Holidays are almost here! Which means if you are heading away you need to start thinking about what to pack.
I’ve found as I’ve gotten older, I tend to dress down on holidays, just pack the usual suspects (or just pack whatever I can grab because I’m too busy packing for everyone else), but this time, I want to pack a little more everyday glam in my suitcase.
Why not dress up a little when you’re away I say! And what a perfect incentive to go a little more glam with your packing than when I heard the team at my favourite handbag HQ, Saben, were releasing a suitcase collection, GOING PLACES, to complement all the amazing handbags!
What excites me about this new luggage collection is that it’s “designed with intent” – just like their handbags. The range uses luxury and quality materials in a functional manner, creating suitcases that look like an accessory, while acting as a necessity.
The range features rose gold hardware, a multi-stage retractable handle, 360 degree dual spinner wheels to glide in any direction, two inner zippered dividers for ease of packing, and a durable mouldered polycarbonate case. The inside, the liner is printed with “you lucky lucky thing” over in a pattern to remind the traveller how lucky they are.
So if you’re heading off on holidays over the summer season, here’s a quick guide as to what to pack, including the perfect suitcase!

I don’t know about you, but I would happily go on holiday with this suitcase full of goodies! Everything can we worn at least two different ways, and you can dress things up and down depending on where you’re going.
There are some fun fabrics, sequins, linens, tencel and denim. They will all pack well and wash easily – just what you need for easy holiday glam.
