Also called a cross-body or essentials bag, this is a must for every travel aficionado!
I didn’t have one before, but always felt the need to buy one. I finally bought the perfect one from Caprese – Serena Envelope Sling Bag (check picture above), and I am already in love with it. You can buy it here.
Here’s why a mini sling bag should be an indispensable part of your travels!
#1 As a Carry-On Bag
During long journeys, I ensure I have all the essentials and whatever I need to stay comfortable with me.
- Energy Bars, Mints, Mini Water Bottle
- Lip Balm, Tinted moisturizer, Sanitizer, Wet Wipes, Kajal, Deo
- Charger, Kindle/iPad, Headphones
- Passport/Identification, Cash/Cards and Copy of Important Documents.
You can carry all of these in it as hand baggage on long flights! ✈️
#2 As a Camera Bag
If you’re like me, you want good pictures of a trip and carry your camera everywhere. It’s very important then to store your camera in a bag, not only so that it stays safe but also cause you don’t want everybody to know that you are tourist and get overcharged for everything while traveling. 📸
#3 Everyday Bag
It is a cross-body bag with a long strap keeping your hands free, along with the envelope flap and double zip compartments – this bag is theft proof. As it is black in color, it goes with almost everything I wear.
It even has a small pocket outside for keeping some change at hand or to keep your headphones untangled. And a lot of space on the inside to carry all your essentials.
No matter where you travel, owning a mini sling bag is a must for everyone. Once you have one, you are never going to travel without it. A mini sling bag is addictive, functional, cute, helpful and can really save your ass if you ever lose your luggage! 🤞😉
