I haven’t done a bag review in ages, but I was so happy with that backpack during my trip, that I had to talk about it. It’s by Longchamp, I was attracted to it because it’s so easy to pack. I used it for the first time when I got to LA, and ended up using it the entire trip. I only used my other crossbody for a night out. On my next trip, I will probably only pack this and another cuter small bag for a fancy dinner or something.
It’s all nylon with a few sections with leather. Backpacks can often look too sporty, but this one has a softer look that goes well with dresses and such.
I took it to dinner on most nights and the size is perfect for daily essentials. All the items below fits in it perfectly with no issues. I used a giant pouch to keep it organized because there’s only one small pocket inside, where I keep things like my small wallet, lip balm and keys.
Once it’s folded, it is so small so it takes no space at all. I could actually fit it in most of my crossbody bags. The only con is this color, the soft pink rubbed on my jeans and got stained a bit, but I washed it with my sneakers cleaner and it’s all good now. Some of the stains remained but you can barely see it. So if you are rough with your bags, and put it on the floor and such, I say get a darker color. I love the red but I still really like the pale pink because it matches my mostly neutral wardrobe perfectly.
Funny thing is, once I got to San Francisco, I saw that bag everywhere in all colors. I thought that was funny, I didn’t spot it in South Florida, LA or Carmel at all. I highly recommend it and it’s affordable too.
