Weekend Trip To The City

What I'm Wearing

Leather Jacket from Theory     Backpack from Piquadro

Whether I am traveling for the day,  the weekend, or the week, there are two essentials I need for every trip- a great outerwear piece and a bad ass bag.

Because its guaranteed to be cold on the plane, in the taxi, or on the train, I always bring some kind of jacket. Whats great about the leather jacket from Theory above, is that I can wear it with dress pants and a button up during the day and feel semi dressed up. Or I can throw it on with a T-shirt, jeans, and a pair of chelsea boots for a no fail night out.

The bad ass bag you are looking at above is from Piquadro. At 28 years old, it was finally time to say goodbye to the Jansport sak and invest in something a little more professional. I came across Piquadro on Madison Avenue in NYC and instantly fell in love. The best way I can describe what this company is creating in the form of backpacks, briefcases, weekend bags, and luggage, is SEXY. Their 100% handcrafted Italian leather feels, smells, and looks like it belongs in the hands of the uber successful. For anyone in New York City, head over to their 509 Madison Ave location, and tell them you heard about them through BLANCHET for an instant 15% off your entire purchase.
