Dealing with hot and humid weather is annoying. What is even more annoying – and unpleasant – is carrying a heavy, sticky leather tote around. Whether real or faux, leather materials pressed against skin on a hot day can create a moat of sweat and their weight can cause straps to dig. Fill that bag with tech accessories, planner, water bottle, etc. and it becomes a massive load of summer torture.
Kate Spade Saturday offers up an eye-catching alternative with their Block-Pocket Satchel. The cotton canvas fabric makes the bag lighter than leather alternatives and prevents skin from adhering. It comes with a long, detachable strap for carrying heavier cargo cross-body. Also, the “pomegranate” color combination is a constant reminder of fruity summer beverages and an escape from a slow workday.
On the practical side, the satchel comes with four pockets and a roomy interior for organizing work necessities. It can easily accommodate a tablet and zips closed for security while commuting. Although the pink and orange colors scream summer, the bag is also available in a tan and black combo to match the more neutral dresser.
Don’t let a weighty, boring tote ruin summer. Lighten and brighten it up with this great Kate Spade Saturday piece!
