In the Bag

A couple of years ago, Jon bought his mom one of the small Longchamp Le Pliage tote bags for her golf outings. I was rather impressed that he picked out such a simple yet stylish design all by himself! A few months ago, when I was thinking about what to bring on our trip to Bali and Singapore, I kept coming back to that same tote. I ended up getting the large size in curry:

It worked out great, especially since I could fit a big stack of magazines in it. (I bought so many foreign magazines during our trip!) The style works for carrying around town or down to the beach. It also has a small pocket for your lip balm, cell phone, hotel key, etc. My only complaint is that I wish the pocket had a closing mechanism. (I ended up attaching some adhesive-backed velcro squares as a temporary fix.)
