I love this bag, I've been using mine for well over a month and the exterior pocket is just perfect.  I don't think I'll ever carry another bag that doesn't have an exterior pocket, you just NEED one.  It's a perfect spot to stash your phone, keys, and even a pair of sunglasses.  Make it patchwork or use a single print, it's beautiful either way.  Best of all, the recessed zipper keeps everything safely inside.  Wear is over your shoulder or cross-body style, the adjustable strap let's you choose.  Great for those busy days of errand running or kid chasing!

  • 2 bag sizes
