THE PERFECT CARRY ON
For my travels I always dreamed of one of these beautiful elegant carry ons in a creme color with cognac leather details on it. This year I finally caved in and treated myself to the Delsey Chatelet hard case cabin trolley. It fits my feminine classic style so well and I would definitely describe it as the perfect carry on.
It always feels a little bit more special and luxurious now when I am packing my bags to leave for my travels. For weekend trips I’ll use the suitcase as my only luggage or for longer vacations as a carry on.

Delsey describes the Chatelet as a truly French blend of elegance and innovation, which summarises the suitcase perfectly. It’s not only stylish, but also more than practical and the result of quality craftmanship. It’s a partner that you can really travel with. The sizing (55x40x20) respects the standards of most airlines and the hard case keeps your things safe perfectly. I was also positively surprised that even with constant usage it doesn’t get marked easily. Nevertheless if it happens, you can swipe them away with a wet cloth and the suitcase will look new again.
You have two compartments: one with a zip around closure, where I’m mostly storing my clothes to keep them neat, and one that is open, where I’m putting one or two extra pairs of shoes and my toiletry and make up bags. With the suitcase you’ll get two small pouches, that can be used to store smaller things or maybe dirty clothes, and a foldable hanger, that I’m honestly not really using. Both are in the same luxury red color as the interior of the carry on. Another great thing is the braking system, where you just need to push a button and it will stay by your side and not roll away, which is especially useful if you’re in a bus during your travels. The four really quiet double wheels make the handling super easy as well.
The Chatelet carry on also is provided with a TSA combination look for secure traveling and has a unique identification code in case it gets lost. You’ll also receive a 10-year worldwide guarantee with purchase that comes in handy in the event of a defect, which will hopefully be unlikely. All in all it’s the perfect carry on and I really enjoy using it during my travels.
The Travel Look
For travels I mostly wear something casual but put together that reflects my personal style. My outfit usually consists of flats or sneakers, jeans and a top as well as a jacket. This River Island light colored suede leather jacket kept me loyal company during those last weeks that have already been quite Autumnal in Berlin. You can wear it with absolutely everything in my wardrobe and the leather feels so high quality. The gold details made the perfect fit to my Nicholas Kirkwood Beya flats. Throw the jacket over a delicate but comfortable lace top (this one from Moon River is so pretty and on Sale) as well as your favorite skinny jeans and you’ll have a classic and modern look for everyday and for your travels.
