I have been looking for a good leather weekend bag for ages and finally came across this one by Danish brand Pieces. While the website describes it as "beige," I am going to say that I think it's a bit more "apricot" in person. (Plus, "apricot" is a much more interesting descriptor, don't you think?) Due to the whole "renewing the visa" thing, I've had to surrender my passport for a while so I won't be able to leave the country for the next few months. Fortunately, I'm still able to move around and about in UK whenever I feel the urge to leave the sleepy little town where I am currently living and writing away at my thesis. This bag will be a perfect accompaniment for these quick little trips. Plus, I have a feeling that over time the leather will look even more beautiful as it ages.
The only thing I am a little worried about is how heavy it will be. I tend to have difficulty packing lightly. I should probably work on that. I think that the last time I went to London for four days, I ended up bringing along four different pairs of shoes... oops!
