Rainy Beach Weekend Getaway Photo Diary

trendy art nouveau forever 21 dress

Dear Lydia,

What to do on a rainy beach weekend getaway? Grab a juice, stay inside and if it looks like it’s clearing up get ready to go antiquing!

And brunch. Of course.

biaggi zipsak fold away luggage

I fit everything I needed inside my Biaggi ZipSak 22″ MicroFold Carry-On, a recent gift from Biaggi. The ZipSak is a regular 22″ carry on that folds up absolutely tiny and takes up less than 1/4 of the space of a traditional carry on. In the photo above it’s shown next to my smallest non-foldable carry on.

Unzip the bottom, flip the wheels out and you’re good to go! It’s also incredibly lightweight, a major plus for someone whose bag is always incurring extra charges from airlines (what, that has never happened to me… I swear).

Although it’s a soft bag, the back is reinforced for stability like most luggage. The Biaggi ZipSak also conveniently unzips in two different ways so you don’t have to dig too far if you need something.

All packed up and ready for travel! If you’d like your own awesome foldable ZipSak, Biaggi is offering a 20% off discount for readers of Delayed Missives– enter code ShopMiss at checkout.

    Ooh! That looks like a nice weekend even if it was rainy. I could go for some rain around here, but for now I’ll have to settle for my internet pink noise machine.

    I was just about to say you are brave for wearing that without tights! haha. Love the bag and that food is making me hungry. YUM! Sorry you were rained out but at least you still had some things to do.

    A rained out beach weekend is sad, but I guess it’s better than no beach weekend at all, right? And you still had fun and took outfit photos.

    That bag is pretty darn cool. Especially since storing luggage can be such a pain!
