From Gucci to Kate Spade, all of our favorite designers are jumping on the women's penny loafer bandwagon and we are so into it. These shoes may look familiar (ahem, from your grandmother's closet...) but we're showing you the hottest pairs of loafers that will be anything but those ones your grandma used to wear.
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.
