The Perfect Summer Travel Bag For Staying Organized: Hayden Reis Tote

Driving up to the Hamptons, ferrying to Nantucket, jetting off to Cabo, driving to Palm Springs…What do all of these have in common? They require a stylish big summer travel bag to keep you organized! A travel bag that keeps you organized and doesn’t scream that you are traveling is hard to find! If you try to go for style and use your Celine Phantom or other designer handbag, forget it! You will end up over packing the poor bag that you have paid dearly for.  If you are practical and go for a huge tote, then you won’t be able to carry it once you get to your destination because of its lack of cool-ness. That becomes very limiting!

The Perfect Summer Travel Bag For Staying Organized: Hayden ReisWe have literally looked all over for the perfect summer travel bag that will keep you organized, and not make you look like a tourist.  Hayden Reis bags are actually beach bags made of Dacron sail cloth (like a sail on a sailboat), making them water resistant, easy to clean and lightweight. The large tote bag or ‘Ditty’ (striped bag pictured below) is huge fitting everything including a floppy hat, beach towel, a change of clothes, and a day’s worth of shopping bags! Seriously! This bag fits everything!  The inside is lined with compartments to keep you super organized, plus a drop down zipper pouch.

The best part of Hayden Reis bags is that there are smaller sizes and even bikini bags, sunscreen bags, and wristlets so that you can keep smaller items in the smaller pouches.  Then throw the smaller pouches in the big tote for the ultimate organization while traveling.  Now, all of that is the practical side.  For style, these bags are uber preppy with nautical, striped or bright colors, making it super stylish to carry around town when on vacation.  For going out for a quick lunch or dinner and then the bars, just take the wristlet and leave the big bag at the hotel! Voila!

Below, we have used the big tote and the smaller wristlets for walking around La Jolla, and having lunch at the La Valencia Hotel.  We are both wearing Tommy Hilfiger outfits and accessories which are the perfect combination for this preppy New England look! Shall we head to the Hamptons? Check back for a Hayden Ries giveaway to launch Mercedes Benz Miami Fashion Week Swim – July 18-22, 2013!
