This fast-paced world of side hustles, business trips, busy kids’ schedules and modern families, it can be difficult to find time to slow down — which is why travelers go to greater lengths to fit everything into one trip.


Given the opportunity, more families are taking micro vacations, quick weekend getaways or extending business trips into quality time away with the kids. That might sound like a lot of planning and forethought, but with some organization and useful accessories, you can pack smart and maneuver a family trip before or after your work responsibilities.


No matter your style, there are a few travel accessories you can take right from the conference room to meeting the family for dinner and a show.


Female Professionals

Cindy Karen styles offer female professionals comfortable, ready-for-anything fashion for young adults and older. Shop pants, dresses, skirts, tops and jackets for ready-to-wear, easy-to-pack and versatile pieces that keep up with a busy schedule. With great street-meets-chic wear, you can dress business casual in comfortable, wrinkle-free styles that easily go day to night.


Cape Town Slacks on the Go are a relaxed-fit slack perfect for travel. This transitional piece can replace a few items on your packing list. Wear these comfortable slacks straight from the airplane to a power breakfast with colleagues, exploring the city on your downtime, meeting clients for lunch and back on the town with the family for a night out. Whether with heels and flats, these slacks keep their shape and clean lines throughout the day.


Another day-to-night option, Montauk Soft Lightweight Anywhere Wear dress is tee-length with cap sleeves and available in blue, black, white and grey. This versatile option is great for teens, young adults entering the work force, millennials and up and looks great paired with a casual jacket and walking shoes, or heels and jewelry for a work event. The dress is super comfortable, low maintenance, soft, easy to pack and can keep up on a busy trip.



When you have to pack work and play gear and don’t want to lug around a briefcase on the family part of your trip, Paravel Luggage is the function meets fashion traveler’s luxury piece. With travel bags in cotton canvas, featherweight nylon and expedition nylon, travelers can have the lightweight feel with durable everyday function.


While each design is simple and unisex, shoppers can browse women and men’s designs from duffle bags and backpacks to packing cubes, wash kits, weekender bags, larger “grand tour” luggage, vanity cases and purses. Shop monochromatic colors, some with leather trim and accents, and styles with the option to monogram nearly everything.


For something on the more budget-friendly side, the fold-up bag is $65 and a versatile piece. Take this bag to the gym at the hotel, to a meeting across town and back to the hotel to meet the family for a casual dinner. Roll everything up tight and take it on an overnight retreat or use it as your carry-on.
