the perfect weekender bag.

I have long been searching for the perfect bag for short trips or for bringing workout clothes to the office for a run home for work. It had to be roomy, but not too roomy. Stylish enough to not scream “GYM BAG!” and practical for carrying in addition to my work tote + laptop. Well, check  check and check, I have found that bag.

Enter Po Campo‘s Midway weekender bag. The bottom storage compartment is perfect for a pair of running sneakers (or a few pairs of heels for the weekend) and the interior is spacious but well organized with pockets that make keeping everything organized easy. The elastic on the front is perfect for carrying a yoga mat, jacket or towel and there’s even a small exterior pocket for stashing your keys and phone. Bonus points for being water resistant and made with vegan leather that feels as buttery soft as the real thing. And those stripes? I pretty much couldn’t ask for anything more (plus the interior is hot pink!)

Po Campo is a Chicago brand built around the idea of an urban lifestyle, with bags that are stylish enough for your commute to work and even several that were made to fit perfectly on a bicycle. It’s about experiencing the richness of city life – and looking good while doing it.

* I was sent the Midway Weekender bag to review from Po Campo but was not compensated for this post (actually I’ve long had this exact bag on my wishlist!)  All opinions and product reviews are honest and my own.
