The Perfect Travel Tote – Chloe Woody Bag
Those of you that follow my blog and are a long time reader of Ford la Femme, will know that it’s no secret that I absolutely adore bags. You could say that I’m obsessed with designer bags and they’re one of my biggest passions when it comes to fashion. I absolutely love my little collection of designer bags, most of them now being from Saint Laurent, but I’m also always on the lookout for new designs!
There’s one bag style that has been catching my eye lately after having seen it on many websites and on fashion bloggers – The Chloe Woody tote bag! It comes in an array of different sizes, materials, colours, and designs, but the one that’s been on my radar is absolutely perfect for travel. It’s the version above! The Chloe Woody bags are an icon on their own. They just look absolutely beautiful and eye catching, while remaining sleek and chic. I’ve kind of become obsessed with them!
My current travel bag is my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour and it fits pretty much all of my essentials like my passport, wallet, ear plugs, tickets etc., but it doesn’t have any extra room for things like a book, a little cardigan for warmth, and various other things you might want to travel with. This is why I’m craving something a bit bigger, like the medium or large version of the Chloe Woody tote.
There is the Nano Woody tote, which you can see in this Chloe Woody tote bag guide, and it’s absolutely adorable! It’s very me, since I love tiny little bags, however, it’s completely impractical, especially when it comes to travelling, ha ha. I do tend to stay away from larger bags in general because I’m short, but for travel, I’m thinking this is an absolute essential!
I had been eyeing the Marc Jacobs The Tote Bag in various sizes as I think those are super cute too. I’ve probably been looking at those bags for about a year, but something in me just doesn’t want to click buy. I’m not sure if it’s because they’re too boxy or not, but as soon as I saw the Chloe Woody tote bag instead, I was absolutely smitten and it’s on my wish list right now as my next designer bag to buy.
I’ve already purchased quite a few designer bags recently after selling off a lot of my collection, so I wasn’t planning on buying another one so soon, but I think if this is an essential that I need for travel, I might just have to! There are 3 different Chloe Woody tote bags that I love the most, and I have shared those 3 versions below.
This is the cutest in my opinion! This Woody bag is in size small, but it does come in a size medium as well. I absolutely adore the chunky stitching in rainbow colours as I think it makes the bag so unique and fun. It’s perfect for summer and I can’t stop smiling every time I look at it. Isn’t it beautiful? I may want this smaller version just as an everyday bag, not just for travel. My heart just feels it.
This is the medium version of the Chloe Woody tote bag and it’s another absolute favourite of mine! The abstract print down the sides of the Chloe branding is really chic. I love the grey scale colour scheme that this version has as well. It’s muted and elegant, while remaining casual at the same time. The perfect combination! This version has longer handles to fit over your shoulder too.
Lastly, this is the Chloe Woody bag in size large! It’s the biggest of them all and I think it’s the most perfect tote bag for travelling with. I love this version the most as it has gorgeous rich, brown leather panels which just complement the canvas and logo branded fabric colours. It’s stunning! This is the same version as the main image above, and it might just be a must have for me.
I’m not 100% sure which Chloe Woody bag I want to go for, and whether I might prefer the medium or the large, but I know I absolutely want one as they’re stunning! What’s your opinion on the Chloe Woody bag? Do you think it’s beautiful as well?
