Converse® One Star® Perforated Satchel
This trip was a bit of a challenge on the packing front. One week of business, 2 weeks of outdoor adventure. From a purse standpoint, I just wasn't in the mood to take one of my nicer bags, since I knew it'd probably be stuffed in the back of a dirty car for 2 weeks at the end of the trip. And I didn't want to worry about that.
Behold, the solution.
It's no secret that I am a budget fashionista with the best of them, and Target is a favorite (I had been there 3 times in 2 days before the trip). Well, I was looking for something to store my airplane necessities, but small enough to carry around Barcelona. And it had to have a zipper (those damn pickpockets) and a cross body style for hands-free fun. And not be too precious that I would have to worry about it.
This Converse bag at target does the trick. It's large enough to hold my headsets, a smaller bag with my wallet, keys, and junk, a pair of sunnies, my beloved neck pillow, and it has a zip pocket inside for security. A handy and easy-open snap pocket on the outside holds tickets, passport, and phone for easy access. There's some pockets inside for a phone as well. Plus it's on trend with the perforated leather. There's an adjustable strap for cross body, as well as 2 top handles for easy carrying. It's cute enough to bring into my business meeting, but not too fancy that I can't carry it with jeans. I'm not sure I could have designed a better bag for my specific needs for this trip. And, it's a steal. Target FTW. Again.
