After an uncharacteristically mild winter, temperatures are starting to rise which has me thinking of many things: bright pedicures, strappy sandals, throwing my tights out the window and weekends spent outside of the city. Spring and summer means foisting myself on my helpless friends with country homes -- whether it's New Hampshire or New Jersey, I don't mind, just get me out of Manhattan.

With that in mind, it's time to think about updating my weekend bag. I need something that is roomy enough for three outfits, toiletries, and a few pairs of shoes (my high-maintenance weekday look goes to the birds on the weekends). I'd rather not carry one of those roll-on suitcases, because, while functional, I love the idea of just throwing my bag over my shoulder and hopping on the nearest plane, train or automobile. Here, my seven picks for bags that will get you out of town in style. Now if only bus fare was included...
