I purchased this Clare V bag maybe five years ago, when its price was splurgy (though not quite as splurgy as it is now) and I have to say it’s a purchase I do not regret: the leather is super-lightweight—like literally lighter than a nylon bag—and it has aged really nicely.
A seriously big—as in, it’s 29 inches long—quilted number in which I’m pretty sure I could easily pack enough for a whole week away.
I just really like the combination of creamy tones on this one.
I often pack my weekend stuff in a backpack like this one from Fjallraven, especially when I’m weighted down with other bags and need at least one hand free for the dog.
An appealingly utilitarian, clean-lined Carhartt option.
This one folds up, making it an ideal bag to bring in the suitcase on a longer trip when you think you might be coming home with more than you had when you left.
This nylon bag also comes in black, but I dig this marigold hue.
Here is a particularly elegant option. I’m always a fan of a canvas and leather combination.
How fun is this tie dye choice from MZ Wallace?
The deep green on this sturdy-looking choice appeals.
A fun leopard print, from Ganni.
This rings in at under $75 and is just really cute in the pink.
This just looks so summery in red, white, and blue.
And finally: I opened with a splurgy option so I’ll close with one too—this suede Rag & Bone bag, which is just desperately chic.
