When I start packing for my trips, I always take my AWAY suitcase and Jo Totes camera backpack.  Lately, I also carry a purse with me and the Coach Saddle Bag is the perfect fit.

I wish I could just throw everything into my camera backpack, but I know that's not going to happen. When I'm traveling, I always need an extra bag to carry my small items like my phone, wallet, chap stick, Advil, hand wipes, and other miscellaneous things I just can't leave at home. The Coach Saddle Bag is awesome for my travels because it is functional, fashionable, and comfortable to wear. Here are some other reasons why I love this purse so much:

Not only is leather durable, but it looks even better as it ages. I like a good sturdy bag because all those little necessities I carry with me get a little heavy, so I don't want a bag where I'm worried that the material will wear quickly. 


Being hands-free is a huge plus for me especially when traveling. I am constantly taking pictures, so I rarely pack a purse with handles. I especially like this saddle bag because the straps are adjustable.

I chose this beautiful navy blue color because it already matches a lot of the clothes I currently have in my wardrobe. I'm also a bit clumsy, so the chances of a smudge or stain is definitely possible. Therefore, having a darker toned bag can hide all those mishaps.

This saddle bag is just the right size. Not too big, yet not too small. I like to carry my small Canon EOS M3 mirrorless camera (yes, on top of all of my other cameras I need this one too!) and this bag gives me just enough room for that and my other items.


The simplicity and luxurious elegance of this bag makes it timeless. I can see myself carrying this bag for years and perhaps even passing it down to someone special.
