MY-YA STYLE, RIVIERA EDITION

ON SATURDAY I WILL BE HEADING TO RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO. I AM BEYOND EXCITED. I AM NOT THE MOST ELOQUENT TRAVELER, SO I DECIDED TO PLAN OUTFITS AND PACK EARLY TO TRY AND CALM SOME OF MY TRAVEL NERVES. LOSING MY LUGGAGE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING I WORRY ABOUT, SO I DECIDED TO TEST OUT SOME OF THE GOODS I WORK ON DAILY. I'VE MADE SURE EVERYTHING I PACK WILL FIT IN BURTON'S WHEELIE FLIGHT DECK PREMIUM LUGGAGE, AN APPROVED CARRY-ON SIZED LUGGAGE.

THE MAJORITY OF WHAT I'VE PACKED CONSISTS OF BATHING SUITS, BEACH COVER-UPS FOR THE DAY AND LIGHTWEIGHT EVENING OPTIONS (AND PROBABLY 1 TOO MANY PAIRS OF SHOES). A STRAW FEDORA SEEMS LIKE AN ISLAND STAPLE, BUT TO KEEP IT A BIT MORE INTERESTING THAN THE USUAL, I PICKED UP THIS TWO TONE VERSION, ON SALE NOW AT FOREVER 21. A PALM PRINT SCARF DOUBLES AS A BEACH SARONG AND A PAIR OF VANS WILL DO IN THE EVENT OF EXCURSIONS. IN ORDER TO SAVE SPACE, I PLAN TO USE MY SHOES/SANDALS TO PACK INTIMATES AND ALL OF MY GARMENTS ARE ROLLED AND ALIGNED ON THE ONE SIDE OF THE LUGGAGE, SHOES ON THE OTHER.

WHAT'S IDEAL ABOUT THIS LUGGAGE ARE THE COMPARTMENTS. THERE IS AN EASY ACCESS TOP LOADING SECTION ACCESSIBLE FROM BOTH INSIDE AND EXTERIOR. THE TWO LARGE COMPARTMENTS FIT MORE THAN YOU'D EXPECT, PLUS BURTON USES CRAM TECHNOLOGY (A FABRIC TECH THAT ALLOWS A GREAT DEAL OF STRETCH IN EACH CABIN) SO EVEN IF YOU WANT TO STUFF THAT ONE LAST SHIRT IN, YOU CAN. I MAY STILL BE WEARY OF THE FLIGHT ITSELF, BUT AT LEAST I CAN SCRATCH ONE FEAR OFF MY LIST.
