If you follow me on social media, you will know that I’ve been on a super fun trip to Greece and Bulgaria over the past few weeks. It was a memorable holiday filled with sightseeing, beaches and a whole lot of Aperol spritz. This was my first time in Europe (shocking, I know) and relaxing on the beaches in Mykonos, exploring the beautiful city of Athens and eating all of the fried cheese in Sofia are memories that I will never forget (in spite of the expected haziness that comes from five euro bottles of wine). My heart feels a little bit fuller having finally visited Sofia, Bulgaria, the hometown of one my best friends.
Shortly before I left for Europe, I discovered a brand called MZ Wallace at a press event and quickly fell in love with their unique nylon totes and handbags. I reached out to see about taking a few of their bags on my travels and was excited when they said yes. I chose the Black Oxford Small Crosby with three different straps (!!!!) and the Black Bedford Marlena Backpack.
I thought that The Crosby would be perfect for keeping things safe while travelling because it has about ten pockets and the different straps allow it to be both a cross body or shoulder bag. Whether I was in a busy market or out for a nice dinner, this bag was versatile enough to be the only purse I needed for my trip.
In addition to The Crosby, I took the Marlena Backpack for when I needed to carry more stuff around. The backpack fit my DSLR perfectly, as well as my sunscreen, water bottle and Turkish towel for the beach. It’s pretty awesome! Plus, it looks super stylish, and there were a few times when I wore it just for fun, too.
The craftsmanship of MZ Wallace is virtually unmatched. Each seam is flawless, the hardware is top quality, the designs are on point and the nylon fabric is both lightweight and compact, making it easy to pack in a suitcase. These two bags will be coming with me on my all my travels this summer and I couldn’t recommend them more.
