Q. I’m planning several getaways this summer and am on the hunt for a new weekend bag, can you recommend some?
A. We recently came across the amazing Weekender Bag from Kate Spade Saturday that is by far the best of its kind. At a reasonably priced $170, you get a coated canvas bag that not only looks great, but has tons of features that make packing for the weekend a breeze. Inside you’ll find several pockets including a removable cell-phone compartment and drawstring pockets to hold all your accessories. Perhaps the feature we love best, however, is the separate zippered shoe compartment which easily holds a couple pairs of sandals. It also comes in a variety of colors and prints to suit your style. Check it out at saturday.com — and while you’re there, check out some of the other chic/functional bags including a picnic tote that folds out into a blanket and a cooler tote.
(P.S. If you’re feeling really creative, there’s even an option to customize your own small weekender with several colorblocked combinations and a monogram.)
