Ah, Friday. I have to say, I always love Fridays. And for a lot of you, you are watching the hours pass by and looking forward to your three day weekend. This got me thinking, if you are heading out of town for the weekend, what kind of handbag would you take along with you? When I think about weekend getaways I’ve had in the past, the handbag I take is usually one that can hold all the essentials as well as a few extra things I’d like for the trip: magazines, iPod, a few snacks, etc. I think the Marc by Marc Jacobs Softy Satchel would be a great choice for this kind of adventure. Pebbled black or pink leather with silver hardware and double rolled handles appears durable and fashionable. Plenty of pockets and compartments so you can keep things within reach help add to why I love this handbag. And the lining – a fabulous pattern which would easily put a smile on my face each time I open the bag. Buy through ShopBop for $428.
