  1. Go for the Paravel cubes! I’ve got a monogrammed set and they have changed my travel life. Seriously. And if you’re considering a new carry-on, I’m with EMM and recommend the Paravel Aviator. I love mine in the Scout Tan! Plus they’ve running a site wide 15% off sale with the code SUMMER. It’s a sign 😉

  2. I have had the Paravel packing cubes in my cart all week and this was the little push I needed! Also ordered one of the Cabana totes and a fold up backpack. Heads up: everything is 15% off on their rn! I’m heading to Europe for three weeks in September and will be fully kitted out.

    1. Love! The tote has quickly become my preferred bag for summer. I have used it so heavily for pool trips, day trips, travel, beach, etc! I love the side pockets and the fact that it is lined in a wipeable material. Plus, so chic! Hill has one of those fold up backpacks and it is excellent as a pre-school backpack but I’ve also thought often about its utility while traveling. Ideal for excursions, shopping, museum-going, exploring on foot, etc as your hands are free and it weighs absolutely nothing. I also find those fold up bags (of any shape, not just backpack) are great for a million other reasons while traveling — to hold dirty laundry, corral items you want to carry to the pool, stow keepsakes, etc. Just great to have extra pouches / zippered bags on hand.

  3. That mother-of-pearl necklace is so adorable! It’s going on my list of “gifts for me” haha.

    I have packing cubes (from ebags, nothing fancy, but they’re very light which I like) in different colors for each member of the family, but I have been eyeing a set of those Paravel ones for me as well as the cabana see-all set to match my tote.

    1. Cute!! Exactly, I feel like I’ve earned the upgraded Paravel set 🙂

  4. I have the Paravel cubes in the green color and can attest to their greatness! You definitely need them 🙂 I also have their carry-on suitcase (also in that safari green shade, natch) and have loved using it for the past 2+ years of near-constant travel.
