ACCESSORIES REPORT: Satchel Daze

The joys of being a jet-setter do not always come easily. The task of planning outfits, when faced with summer travels, can be arduous. Knowing what is appropriate at your destination and battling potential weather issues is never painless. Whether you are wandering the canals of Venice or touring Versailles, having an arsenal of outfits and accessories ready for any occasion is completely necessary. A satchel is the perfect companion to any day filled with blissful, foreign adventures.

This Fashionista adds a pop of color to her deep-neutral outfit with this Cambridge satchel. Not only is her bag right on trend, but it is also great for storing all of your summer voyage essentials. The buckles secure the bag and with that hopefully your wallet and passport too. Keep it bold with the royal blue, like this Fashionista does, but also feel free to take it even brighter with a neon one or stay pretty with one of these pastels. Personalize it with a monogram and there will be no mistaking, amongst your fellow travelers, whose satchel is whose.

The rest of this Fashionista’s outfit flows together from head to toe in a layering of neutrals. The black, high-waisted shorts maintain the polished look and pull in the colors nicely from her eye-catching, leopard blouse. Her necklace, with its heavy braiding and bronze tones, takes the look to the next level of chic and emits an ultra-feminine feel. Dressed up with wedges, this outfit can also work for most nighttime festivities.

For those of us who dream about returning to playful schooldays where there was a designated snack time and scheduled recess, this bag can take you way back while pushing you fashion forward at the same time. From overalls to friendship bracelets, old school is making a comeback, but if we were to give ourselves a reality check here, these bags are really too cool for school.
