Treesje: Port Travel Tote
There is no doubt that Longchamp's ubiquitous Le Pliage Large Tote is great for traveling but sometimes, you want something a little different. I find that I've been using my two leather travel totes with increasing frequency because, well, it's no fun when every girl is walking around with your bag. KWIM? I'm sure you do! One of those leather travel totes is my Treesje Port Travel Tote in gunmetal:
Yes, the mortale version (skull motif rather than anchor motif) is more popular but I'm just not a skull motif kinda girl. Plus, the anchor motif will be perfect for my next cruise! The bag is made from a soft matte grey leather with embossed silver anchors. It's slowly becoming more smooshy. The hardware is a beautiful gunmetal. This is not a huge bag but it's large enough for a weekend trip (or for use as a gym bag). It's 17.5" wide and 14" tall. I like to use this bag as my carry-on when I fly...it's perfect for my 15" MBP. (I use a neoprene sleeve for added protection.) The handle drop is a very comfortable 8" but if I end up stuffing this bag to the max, I like to use the shoulder strap with a 10" drop. When you use the shoulder strap, it feels like it takes pounds off the bag! Here's a better look at this bag:
