I recently started a new job, and with that I needed a new work bag to help me carry all of my things through my commute. I've been searching every mall, every store and every winners across Toronto and nothing!
I finally came across Dagne Dover on instagram, and fell in love with their bags! This is an all woman company, and that is why they understand and know what women need in their bags!
I decided on the Landon Carryall in the size Medium, although if I had the chance, I would have gotten the Large size instead.
I got the Landon Caryall in the colour Storm, which was not my first choice, however the colour has grown on me, and i'm quite happy with it!
I did get the medium size, which I was under the impression would fit my 15" laptop comfortably in the laptop sleeve, however after I purchased the bag, I realized my laptop was actually bigger and it didn't fit in the sleeve at all. This was no fault but my own. However the laptop does fit comfortably in the main compartment of the bag, and I am able to clip the flaps on the sides down with the laptop in there perfectly fine.
As you can see - I did have to add my touch of sparkle to it, like I did with this adorable penguin charm!
My favourite compartment of the bag is the back pocket. I use this to hide my phone away when i'm commuting, since I know this part of the bag will be snug against my body when I carry it. I currently have the iPhone 7 Plus, and there is more then enough room to hide it away! Also - when travelling this would be the perfect place for a passport!
As you can see - I have my bag packed to the brim, and everything has a place, and everything is organized!
This is what the bag looks like with the middle compartment being empty. There is so much room - I love it!
I absolutely love the fact that they provide a shoe bag, because sometimes... well.. my feet hurt from wearing heels all day, and I don't want them to touch anything else in my bag when I switch to flats!
Here is a pic of the laptop I use for work, I carry it with me every day!
This planner is another thing I have to carry with me every single day. This is where I keep track of all my business details, meetings, appointments as well as my personal things - to do lists, goals etc.
I have always been a visual person, so every aspect of my life is colour coded, which is why when I found this pen holder at Indigo, I was ecstatic!
How cute is this little bag I got from Neccessities in Toronto?
I like to keep all of my "Extras" together in one bag, so here is a look into what I carry with me at all times! (The only thing not visible in this image, is my iPhone USB and my Air Pods.
Until next time!
