It’s that time of year where we’re all itching to escape the cold of winter for some warm weather getaways! Whether you’re still looking for inspiration for where to book your trip or simply looking for some help with what to pack, we’ve got you covered. Here are 8 of the most desirable getaways to escape this winter (and handbags we’re swooning over that you should bring along).
The colorful streets of Cartagena have been attracting more and more people to Colombia as of late. This vibrant town is the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast, thought to be the crown jewel of South America. With a tropical climate, it’s also a popular beach destination. We recommend accompanying with a bright pop of pink like this Hermes clutch.
Off the northwestern coast of Africa, you’ll find the Canary Islands: a Spanish archipelago known for their black and white sand beaches. Warm year-round, winter is an especially wonderful time to bask in their sunshine. Perplexed on what to pack? We suggest embracing the “black and white” theme to match their beaches with something like this white Chanel bag.
Brimming with Spanish colonial architecture and an array of vibrant color, Havana has a survivalist spirit having withstood two independence wars, a revolution and a US trade embargo. Today, it is still somewhat stuck in the past (yet the vintage cars still driving around have become somewhat of a signature novelty). We suggest matching that throwback pink you’ll find on the cars with something like this Chanel or this Louis Vuitton.
This British island territory in the North Atlantic Ocean is a blend of British and American culture, yet with breathtaking island scenery unlike anywhere you’ve ever visited. Their famous pink-sand beaches like Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay serve as the perfect handbag inspiration (we recommend this blush Chanel backpack).
Tucked away in the Sonoran Desert in Southern California is the former stomping grounds of legends like Frank Sinatra. Palm Springs is a vibrant, vintage oasis that’s brimming with stylish hotels, golf courses and endless midcentury-modern architecture. We suggest channeling your inner Jackie-O with a classic-yet-unique Chanel bag.
If you’re looking to “party in the city where the heat is on” (or perhaps embrace a glamorous scene of opulent celebrity-chef eateries) look no further than South Beach, Miami. Throw your towel in this Chanel drawstring back and stroll along Ocean Drive to marvel at the art deco architecture before hitting one of the many ostentatious pools.
Privately set in the Indian Ocean halfway between Indonesia and Africa is a string of over 1,000 coral islands, known as the Maldives. If you’re looking for sparkling turquoise waters, it will be hard to beat what you’ll find here. Their famous attraction, Hukuru Miskiy, is a mosque made of carved white coral. Channel that pristine beauty with another white gem like this Chanel flap bag.
It may be part of the United States, but this lush island in the Central Pacific is anything but domestic. Whether you’re in search of tropical foliage, waterfalls, or a dramatic landscape of cliffs and beaches in just about every color, you’re sure to find it here. We recommend channeling those deep gem tones you’d find in a lush forest, like these Gucci options.
We’re guessing by now these descriptions have you booking that trip, but perhaps you’re not quite as convinced to pull the trigger on purchasing one of the bags? We’ve got you covered. We know how it feels to lust over a handbag that’s beautiful, but not necessarily something you know you’ll carry it forever. That’s why we’ve created our leasing program to let you only pay for the time you carry it.
