As if traveling isn't stressful enough, we have to worry about bringing all the essentials—comfy (read: stretchy) jeans, an outfit that can be dressed up or down, something glitzy for a girl's night out, and at least two pairs of shoes—all without overpacking. Make the trip easier for yourself by choosing an overnight bag that's not too big nor too small. Enter: the weekender bag. It's the perfect travel-sized companion for a long weekend getaway or quick three-day trip whether by car, train, or plane, all while avoiding pesky checked baggage fees. We've collected the best, most stylish but durable weekender bags for women to take on the holiday hustle.
From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses. In the time we took trying to figure out how to fit anything other than our cell phone in these tiny little bags to toying with our emotions towards hanging up our favorite totes, designer brands have crafted up the perfect little (emphasis on the little) bags of our dreams and we're finally ready to hop on the mini bag bandwagon. Are you?

Picture your perfect pair of 5-inch heels and how easily it is to walk around all day in them, running from errand to errand. Yeah, we can't imagine that either. We’re taking it down an inch, or four, with the latest craze: low, mid, and kitten heels. Don’t get it twisted, we love our high-heeled leg lengtheners, but strutting from place to place at a snail’s pace isn’t practical for a girl on the go. Which is why we’re tipping our hats—and lowering our heels—to high fashion’s renewed sense of comfort-meets-style.
