I love to keep things as simple as I can when I travel. On our latest trip, I brought along my beautiful new tan leather Audrey Lu camera bag by 3 Annies. It’s the second big overseas holiday where I’ve travelled with an Audrey Lu bag, and it’s now my favourite choice!
It’s the perfect size for hand luggage, and for putting under the seat in front on a flight. I can fit my camera and lenses, book, phone, purse, a little make up and overnight bits and pieces, and even a pair of sunglasses for daytime arrivals (oh, and my passport, of course!). The many pockets keep me organised and I can grab the things I need quickly. So important when moving through airports.
It looks absolutely fabulous and could easily be mistaken for a handbag – and that’s exactly what I use it for when I’m out and about at my destinations. The removable padded inner box makes the Audrey Lu so versatile, and means I don’t need to pack several bags, because I have everything in one! I’m well past the baby days with my Sophia, but how I wish this bag had been around when she was born, as it would make a sensational nappy bag too.
The leather is so soft but robust, and I love the silver metals. Oh, and did I tell you how amazingly comfortable it is to carry? Even when I have it packed to the brim! I can choose between the overarm straps, or swap to the cross body strap which has a lovely padded shoulder piece. I’m not the strongest person around (thank goodness for my husband helping with the heavy cases) so comfort is key for me.
And it’s super pretty! I’m certain 3 Annies bags are the most gorgeous camera bags I have seen. That’s probably why I have a little collection of them – it’s hard to stop at one! The tan colour is such a wonderful choice for travelling as it looks great with any dress, or a pair of shorts and top, casual, or dressy, day or night. Even by the pool. And especially, while I’m out shooting! I’m sure it will join me on many more adventures.
