5 Spring Day Trip Ideas With The Pixie Mood Rae Crossbody

5 Spring Day Trip Ideas With The Pixie Mood Rae Crossbody

It’s the season for exploring, babe! We can’t wait to step outside, breathe in the warm Spring air, and start our next adventure. Our steadfast companion has been Pixie Mood’s Rae Crossbody, a multi-functional crossbody bag that allows us to hit the town feeling FREE from the burden of a jam-packed purse. To celebrate the healing act of getting out and about, we’ve put together a list of our favorite springtime day trips and what we’re packing in our Rae, for the ride. 

Hike 
Nature’s medicine. We absolutely adore a hike as the fresh blooms begin to push through the dirt. The best hikes allow for quiet reflection, so we’re tucking our phone away, for this one! 

What to pack:

  • A few blank pages so we can take a seat + journal in nature
  • A pen, for aforementioned journaling
  • An energy bar for when we’re feeling peckish
  • Our bank card, health card & cell phone for safety’s sake! 

Winery
It’s not a spring adventure without a glass in hand, am I right?! We’re calling up our best girlfriends and packing our bags for insta-worthy moments, memory making, and soaking up the sunshine (safely!). 

What to pack:

  • Our smartphone, for the photo-ops
  • A small travel jar, filled with sunscreen
  • Our go-to lip gloss
  • An ID, to prove legal drinking age

Botanical Gardens
Tip toe-ing through the tulips is totally in right now. Do a quick Google to find one of these curated natural spaces near you, and pack your bag for a relaxing day getting in touch with the natural world. 

What to pack:

  • A pair of sunglasses
  • If your garden of choice allows it, keep some approved bird seed in the zipper pouch in case there’s an opportunity to feed some beaked beauties
  • Tie a headscarf of handkerchief to the side of your bag for style + sun protection!

Art Gallery 
There’s nothing more inspiring than spending the day immersed in creativity. This one may include a drive out of town, so we’re keeping our Rae stocked with snacks for the ride. Many galleries prohibit photography, so this is another great option to unplug. 

What to pack:

  • A small notepad is perfect for this outing, to keep track of your favorite pieces and artists
  • You’ll want to have some cash on hand to purchase snacks and drinks from the concession
  • A small reusable bag of nuts or dried fruit for road trip snacking

Coffee Date
Sweet romance + freshly ground coffee go hand in hand! To keep our teeth pearly, our favorite reusable straw is coming along for this ride, and we’re putting our phone away to stay present with our partner. Bonus tip: Don’t forget the stamp card for your favourite local spot! What’s better than coffee? Free coffee. 

What to pack:

  • Our favorite reusable straw is coming along for this ride, so we can sip our iced latte in conscious style
  • A small perfume roller 
  • Mintier, for fresh breath post-latte!

These are our picks, but the Rae is so versatile, we encourage you to make it your own. This crossbody is made of recycled vegan leather and recycled bottle lining, and includes:

  • Front phone pocket with button closure
  • Fits up to an iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • Clear ID window
  • 14 interior card slots
  • Bill compartment
  • Back zip change compartment
  • Detachable, adjustable shoulder strap
