This is a sponsored post in partnership with Vera Bradley and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own.
Readers, no matter how much time I have to get somewhere, I always end up late. Give me an hour or five and I’m going to use every extra minute and then some. My family has even started telling me that events are happening earlier than they actually are just so I can end up on time.
This is why when I travel, I like to stay super comfortable. My yoga pants and puffer vests are always my go to outfit and my Vera Bradley Large duffel travel bag in Katalina pink is my go to luggage!
The bag, which sells for $85 online, is big enough to fit so much stuff in it. Ask any of my friends – I am a total over-packer. For a simple one night’s trip, I bring about three bags – this duffel, my purse, and a duffel just for hair products.

Whenever I travel, my four most important items are my robe, my makeup bag, my travel coffee mug, and my sunglasses!
I’ve always loved robes for as long as I can remember, thanks to my grandma. She would always show me how blissful it would be in the morning to be snuggled up in a cozy robe and slippers. My robe has become a part of who I am – and the fact that’s cheetah print really seals the deal! Whether it’s a trip to my little’s house or a beach vacation, I always have my robe to wake up to in the morning and wear when I am doing my makeup.
Which leads me right into my second most important item – my makeup bag! Makeup gives me that extra confidence boost that I always want- whether it be just my basic mascara or a full smokey eye. My newest makeup bag, from Victoria’s Secret (similar), is big enough to carry all that I need from any of makeup hauls.
I live off of coffee. I’m pretty sure my veins are a mixture of coffee, diet coke, and glitter more than they are blood. Whenever I travel, I always need to have coffee with me. Hey, I need coffee with me whenever I go anywhere. Santa Clause brought me this new Juicy Couture travel mug to bring with me. If I don’t get to stop at a Dunkin Donuts before I hit the road, I always make my own coffee. It’s great to have my own travel mug with me because some places, especially at my school, let you fill up your own mug for a cheaper price.
Lastly, I always will have my sunglasses with me. I have three of the exact same pairs – one pair I always have in my car, one I always have in my purse, and then another pair that I try to always use and keep on me. They’re great to avoid the sun in your eyes while driving, any glares on the road, or keep your eyes hidden when you’re peaking on the hotties laying next to you on the beach! Something about a great pair of sunglasses also always helps my confidence level – I feel just so badass in a great pair of aviators.

I love the Vera bag!
I am a notorious overpacker as well so I can totally relate.
I love Vera duffels! They last so long and fit so many items.
I am famous among my college friends for being an overpacker- haha!! I so feel you! Looks like you pack in style though! 😉
I am such an overpacker and I always pack at the absolute last minute! I feel you!
I love Vera Bradley bags! These are such great essentials! I would say a huge essential for me is chapstick. Especially on a plane my lips always get chapped!
Love that bag!
adorable vera bradley print!!!
I love Vera Bradley duffles!
I love Vera Bradley and have always wanted a duffle. This post might be the push I needed to finally buy one!
I love that bag. I am in need of a new duffle. I just use my dance bag from high school!
I love that you travel with a robe! I always wear them around my house but never thought to bring one along for travel. Love the duffle!
The only item i don’t carry when I travel is a robe but I should start doing that!!
I have a Vera duffel too that I love using! Although, honestly, my go-to item is my backpack. I usually never travel without it. I’d much rather use a backpack than a purse (does that make me weird?) and I can usually stuff tons of travel items into it.

I have a Vera Bradley duffle and it is perfect for traveling!!!
I love the duffel! so cute and practical
I love this bag. It’s just so vibrant lol. And omg I’m always late too lol I literally have to set my clock to a 1/2 hr ahead so I’ll make it on time to places lol
I’m late for everything! That’s why I always have to make a list before I travel anywhere. If I don’t make a list, I know I’ll forget something and have to drive back to my house and be even more late. Your duffel is so, so adorable! Love it! Some of my travel essentials are face wipes, audio books, good music, my snuggie (I’m always cold!) and some snacks.
That bag is such a staple in every southern girl’s closet. Loving that print.
