I love a soft leather hobo- but it has to be so soft and pliable that when the bag has a slight weight pulling it down the entire bag squishes in and cradles your shoulder in that perfect way. I know you know what I mean.
But for the time being, I’m in a tiny town in the Northeast that I’ll affectionately (because I love this place) dub “Granola Town” because everyone shops at the Co-op and bans big business, letting the cutest shops flourish. That’s why when I saw this Steven by Steve Madden Uptown Tribal Bucket Hobo, I knew it was the best of both worlds. That is, it has that soft leather hobo structure, but in a canvas that’s much more eco-friendly. Plus the tribal geometric print in purple keeps it interesting, while the whipstitched leather trim updates the look from reusable grocery bag to everyday casual chic. It’s got enough fashion for a city girl on a budget, I’d say, but it’s also laid-back enough to satisfy the locals in this town. Buy through Nordstrom for $198.
