There's a bit of a story here. I mentioned earlier this summer that I needed a casual bag, one that was lightweight and easy to toss on, and I considered a bunch of backpacks.
Sterling recommended that I simply go with a nylon version of the Rebecca Minkoff Julian (which I have in leather and love but which is a bit heavy for my treks around the trails.)
I ordered one on sale and it took almost 2 months to arrive! Delivery snafu. Eventually, I got it, though, and it was an excellent choice -- thank you, Sterling!
The pluses -- seemingly infinitely expandable but looks ok when not too full also. Side pockets and small back pocket. Lightweight. Colour makes me smile and goes with my stuff.
The minuses -- it's not as well organized/ compartmentalized/ structured as i might wish. I long for a key holder, for a few more separate pockets inside.
You can't see it really all that well in these pics but they give you a sense of what situations I'm wearing it in.
Thank you, Sterling!
I'm with my husband's grandson in the last two. They came for a visit and it was so lovely to see family. We can travel between provinces here (in most cases) without self-isolation (assuming no illness, obviously) and so they did that and stayed with us for a couple of weeks.
