Marco Island with Mark & Graham

My family look a trip to Marco Island, Florida at the end of January, and we had such a wonderful time! It was sunny every day and it was just what we needed after such gloomy weather back in Michigan. This is our second time to Marco Island as a family, and Joe and I’s third time to the area. There are so many great things to do in Marco Island and nearby Naples, and being on the Gulf of Mexico side makes for gorgeous sunsets.

Coastal Cut-Out Bag – c/o Mark & Graham  /   Terminal 1 Carry-On Luggage- c/o Mark & Graham

I decided for the week long trip I would only bring a carry-on luggage and tote, and I had more than enough room to do so. I’m a big fan of doing carry-on only when possible, so I’ve been searching for the perfect luggage for years. This carry-on luggage is the answer to my prayers! It’s the right size for all airlines to qualify, has a hard case that makes a great structure for fitting all the essentials, and has handy organizational compartments inside for easy access (see photo above of it opened up). You can even lock it if you’d like! The quality and style are always a home run from Mark & Graham and this luggage is no exception. 🙂

The coastal cut-out bag is the perfect compliment to the luggage as it’s the right size to count as your “personal item”, but also roomy enough to fit tons of other items. The best part is that I used it as a beach tote and purse all week – it’s functional and stylish! I put all my “liquids” on the top of the bag so I could easily access them during the airport security, as well as items I wanted easy access to during the flight like my ipad, magazines, etc

    How is the mark and graham luggage holding up? I’ve heard the letter handles start to fall apart.

      I haven’t had any issues with it! I haven’t heard that about the handles but I’ve been really happy with it. I did have it scuff a little bit when I checked the bag but it came off with magic eraser easily.
