CV bags get around

As the summer is coming to a close, I have to face the fact: for the first time in 15 years, we are not going to France for a month this summer. Sure we've had a few nice trips to make up for it - New York and Lake Superior, but it's really felt like something was off this year with us not spending time with le mari's family and not getting our dose of the beauty of France. This year it would have been impossible to leave the growing CV company for a month. It's a good reason not to go, but even a good reason not to go ultimately means you're not going all the same. :) So instead of sharing our own pictures from France this summer, I'm sharing a few stellar pics of CV bags from around the globe from friends' travels. 
A few times this summer I've truly felt like I'd rather be one of my bags. Is that wrong? :)
This photo of the floating iPad case came in from Bret Lama. It was taken at the Copenhagen airport about a week ago. So cool.
When I say I wish I were one of my bags, I'm really saying: I wish I could be one of KK's bags. Here she is walking the streets of Rome with Ava and a black messenger. This one and following 2 are taken by her husband, the photographer Michael Edwards. If you click the link, I'm not responsible for the many shades of green you will turn spying their Italian getaway.
Here's the silver bando heading for some gorgeous beach on the heel of the boot or Puglia.
Silver Bando again roaming the Roman streets. Ha. Cute pink shorts!
Here I present to you the Overnighter in green on a beach in Greece. I love how the two spots of yellow in this pic - her bikini bottom, the mystery object in the foreground, bring out the green in the Overnighter. I also love Caitlin's Euro toplessness:)
Here's Caitlin in Greece again, this time with the black messenger.
Here is Lea Moret pictured at 1, calle Reina Victoria, Barcelona taken by her father, my friend François, and published on his blog Sunday Memories. She is holding the silver flat tote.
Lastly, from Jeana Sohn's blog, here is the Overnighter getting ready for a trip to Big Sur with Jeana and her girlfriends.

Funny I booked my ticket to Paris to go to maison & objet and I was wondering if you were coming to Paris too. Got the answer now, shame but also very good reason to stay put and look after you growing baby!

You definitely make bags perfect for travel. I took my La Tropézienne all over Mexico this summer. Enjoyed seeing where your other bags have traveled.

My blue foldover clutch was all over Italy this summer - sorry I don't have any photos of it :( - but it was perfect.

Clare, I always take a couple of your clutches when I travel for evenings out. They pack beautifully and add a touch of chic to whatever I wear at night. Yes, your bags are well-travelled!

I was wondering about your annual trip to France. Feel sorry for you since I would miss mine too (and did in the past). But your navy blue weekender made it with me to Geneva & France, a perfect cabin bag! And it smells so good, I could not help putting my nose into it when looking for stuff:)Marie

Okay, besides the GORGEOUS bag, I love the hot pink shorts and top! Who makes them? Such an adorable combo! Thanks for sharing CV!

Vivier said...

Beach Bren, I don't know who makes the shorts - I'd say J Crew though. Thanks for writing! xo
