My SoCal friends — who else has been loving the longer days & warmth lately?! I know I have been. As I pack up for my move to Palm Springs in a couple weeks, I have officially stored away all my winter clothing. Now, my closet is fully transitioned into SPRING MODE! I have several must-have wardrobe items for the new season. One of them is a versatile bag that will look chic with just about any casual outfit. These days, I can’t leave the house without my everyday spring tote by Jackson Wayne.
This tan leather bag is so practical in a plethora of settings. I can take it out on client meetings, road trips, and even out to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh flowers for the week. It makes for a great carry-on bag for travels, too! Inside the bag, there is a smaller pocket ideal for storing loose cash, a phone, and other personal items. This makes it easier to locate the littler things. Despite its vintage style, the tote is extremely durable. This tan beauty is made of the finest leather, thread, and hardware. For its size, I expected the bag to be a lot heavier but contrary to my belief, it fits a small-framed girl like me perfectly!
Jackson Wayne is well-regarded for using only the highest quality full grain leather. This means that with extended wear, there may be some naturally occurring creases and scratches. These minor markings are not bad, though! Instead, they make each and every bag unique to its owner. Speaking of unique, the leather has natural color variation. Even though two bags may be in the same color, the leather may look slightly different in its own way.
I have literally taken this bag with me everywhere for the past two weeks, and have gotten so many compliments on it. It goes beautifully with a Spring dress like this one by Maison Jules, and even a basic tee and shorts! Pictures alone really don’t do this one any justice — you have to own it, feel it, and wear it to truly appreciate the quality & beauty! 🙂
What’s a Spring essential you can’t live without this year?
