When I moved here to the USA, I left most of my bags in Dubai because it just wouldn't fit my luggage and I did not want to crease them. Some of them are worn out and have their battle scars from everyday use too. So I knew I wanted a new sturdy bag but I just couldn't find the right one until we went to the outlets 5 days ago and happen to pass by Kate Spade.

It was honestly love at first sight but the hardest part was to choose which color way I should get. It's always good to have other people around to share their thoughts and I was lucky enough to have three - Julian, our friend Angela, and the saleslady. So I ended up getting the Kate Spade Laurel Way Hadlee Nude Satchel Bag, and I love it so much! The expandable sides make it so much easier for me to bring my laptop, iPad, and camera all together anywhere! The handle's grip feels tight and zip-top style of it gives 100% security.


I took it out for a spin today in Georgetown DC and definitely loved how it matched my outfit. I thought it'll look too corporate but the colors are just right for an everyday wear. It's currently not available on their website but the black color way is still up for grabs in case you want it. Just click here!
