After spending a little over two weeks in Europe, I discovered that a necessary item to bring is a stylish backpack or cross body bag. I had both...and neither. I had a backpack that wasn't all that stylish, and a cross body bag that was equally unstylish. I used the backpack to lug my stuff onto the airplane, and then used the cross body bag when traipsing around Paris. It was a functional approach, but I could have saved some time and luggage space if I'd had one all-purpose bag. And this one from COS might have just been the kind of bag that could have taken care of all my needs. Grey, suede, big enough for a water bottle and iPad, and small enough to still be "cool,” my eye is on this backpack for my next adventure.
