Functional and casual, yet chic, this backpack by Lee Coren is the perfect travel companion. I have been taking this one around with me daily and it is undoubtedly my current favorite! Living in one of the busiest cities in the world, a good bag is absolutely necessary. Named the Metropolitan Confetti Backpack, it is made from vegan suede with confetti detailing on the top half and vegan leather on the bottom half. The top closes with a zipper across and this part of the design makes the bag very convenient for accessing the items inside. I can fit a 13″ laptop, and I was definitely able to stuff in a good amount of necessary items and knick knacks. The contents of my bag typically include: an ipad or laptop, a novel I’m currently reading, a notebook or journal, pens, earphones, phone chargers, a wallet and a vanity pouch.  Despite all that I was able to fill the backpack with, the backpack was still very comfortable to wear – I kept it on my back for 4 hours walking around New York City and was surprised at how light it felt throughout my day’s journey. These are the two main reasons I would recommend it for travel: it’s spaciousness and comfortability. There’s also a hidden zipper compartment on the opposite side of the backpack where the straps are and your back would be touching – this spot is good for keys, your bus pass, or anything you’d like to easily be able to reach for or items you’d like to keep in a safer spot. There are also pockets on either side of the backpack for extra storage. This is the ideal backpack situation for your all-inclusive trip to prepare you for the most worry-free and wonderful trip.
