When we think of handbags, we think of simplicity, or at least, for an everyday bag, that’s the word we think of. Working in a city and lugging around all of that random junk (completely necessary to have at all times), can be exhausting, we admit. When you try to fit your makeup bag, lunch (if you bring), iPad, mobile, hand lotion, extra phone charger and coffee mug with enough coffee to last through the morning. Seriously, the list can go on and on forever…
The perfect fix for the problem of loads of junk in your bag is the SANDLUND/HOSSAIN line. Their bags are spacious, durable and have a ton of different options for travel. The perfect everyday tote is you ask us.
Made from vegan leather, the bags come in neutral and have coloured options too such as blue and red, but honestly, they look good with everything.
To start off, the Tote Duett (our Editor Charlotte has got one in blue!) is our favourite here at the YCB offices and most practical for every hard working woman out there, just wanting to fit everything in her tote!
The bonus about this tote is that the strap is long, which is a deal breaker for many when purchasing a bag. In the winter season, layers get uncontrollable, therefore, getting your hands on a longer shoulder strap come Autumn Winter to fit over our marshmallow coat is a must.
The inside of the bag is gorgeously patterned, you know, just to add a bit of spunk to it, and have multiple pockets to hold smaller items such as your phone, keys and passport. We love the zipper option as well, because you always have to be aware of who’s diggin’ through your bag!
For a couple of weekend options, the Logen handbags are perfect to take on a brunch date with your girlfriends, on a walk around the city, or just to run out and get some coffee. Both handbags have a cross-body option if you don’t feel like carrying it around. We try to minimize our “stuff” that we carry in our bags, and go for a little lighter version over the weekend.
The Roka handbag is an in-between bag you can use for work during the week if you have dinner plans and don’t want to lug around your huge tote after. This handbag is a perfect solution. It is medium sized, and is still able to fit all the essentials needed in your daily professional and casual life.
If you’re looking to go a little crazy on the weekends and only want to bring a compact, lipstick, a couple of mints and your cell phone, the Pouch Udden is the right bag to bring. It comes in small, medium or large and accommodates a strap also! And not to mention, it’s unbelievably cute. This bag is great to hold on to on a date to add a pop of colour to your outfit if you are lacking colour in your wardrobe like some of us….
Lastly, what is summer without a long weekend getaway? If you haven’t gone away, please plan that immediately; we give you permission. For sure grab the weekend bag, either the Barnholm (small) or Kalahatt (large); according to the amount that you over pack. They are durable, colourful and fashionable.. why wouldn’t this bag be popular?
All styles to fit the professional working profile at any size, colour and shape!
