In The Bag: Chic, Casual Island Life


Wrapping up my Curaçao style posts, in this edition of my In The Bag series here’s some travel essentials that are chic and casual to live up that island life. Shot at the Carribbean-meets-Miami-chic Floris Suite Hotel.

Backpack – Herschel Supply


In case you didn’t know yet I’m kind of in love with Herschel Supply Little America backpack. Its spacious (20″ H, 12″ L and 7″ W), lightweight canvas body has two sets of stylish leather straps with magnetic closures, and padded shoulder straps and back. The top flap opens up to the drawcord shut main compartment, which has a padded laptop laptop sleeve inside.

Shoes – United Nude


Make a footwear statement whenever possible. United Nude’s Cuba Elastic Slip On is a colorful and simple silhouette with the brand’s signature elastics, mesh lining and rubber outsole. Can be styled with cotton shorts, dark washed jeans and even swimwear.

Headphones – Polk Audio


For a pair of chic headphones turn to Polk Audio’s Buckle style. These over-the-ear headphones have a lightweight aluminum headband that is padded, pivoting ear cups that a padded and very comfortable, and a built-in three-button rocker-switch and microphone to control audio and use for phone calls.

iPhone Case – Incipio


To match the headphones, an all silver case for your iPhone. The Incipio Feather Shine with an aluminum finish is a light hard shell cover with cut holes for access to everything normally on the phone, and is easily put on the phone by sliding the top and bottom part of the cover together.

Sunglasses – Arnette


You need your sunnies whenever you travel, and the Arnette Trooper mirrored style in purple will get you some attention. It’s a style that can cover with all kinds of face sizes.

Swimwear – Original Penguin


You of course also need a great pair of swim shorts, and Original Penguin’s micro gingham style provides a classic swim style that you can get a bright, colorful option of.
