It ain't easy being green


I've been coveting the perfect satchel for sometime now, so when I came across the Cambridge Satchel Company, I knew I found the one!  The bag's sleek and classic design will never go out of style.  I was so excited when the fabulous team at the Cambridge Satchel Co. offered to send me my very own bag.  To say I was thrilled is an understatement.  I was literally jumping for joy. 

When I received the package in the mail (the shipping was super duper fast.. only 2 days, all the way from the Great Britain!), I ripped it open to reveal the most gorgeous bag I've seen in a long time.  The color was so striking, that I had to readjust my eyes.  I actually got to choose what color I wanted, and while I could have been safe and gone with chestnut or black, I chose one from their Fluorescent Line.  Fluorescent green, to be exact.  I'm extremely happy with my choice. I've worn it several times already and have received tons of compliments.  This color is definitely not for the faint of heart, but then again, I'm a girl who loves to stand out.  Blending in is not an option for me.  :)  I love the adjustable strap and while the bag may look like it doesn't hold a lot, it actually does.  This 13" satchel holds everything I need on a daily basis, along with a few extras. 

Thank you again, Lottie & the rest of the Cambridge Satchel Co., for your generosity.  This bag will be heavily worn throughout the summer... and I'm also excited to wear it back to school in the fall.  Mahalo from Maui!!!

Grrrr. I need a pedicure.. yikes! :P

I. LOVE. YOUR. SATCHEL. I love how you opted for a lime neon green instead of a safer colour choice, you really know how to take risks :)! I've totally been lusting for one of those, but there's no way my poor starving student life can afford one, I'll live vicariously through you, so I expect many updates with this bad boy <3

P.S. Hope you've been sleeping better as of late!

I absolutely LOVE the color you chose!! I've been wanting a satchel like that for years. Literally years! I'm still saving up to purchase one from that company. :) Choosing the color is probably going to be the toughest part for me.

Aww your satchel is amazing! I'm not brave enough to try the fluorescent range, but I have 2 satchels in purple & light pink. The light pink one looks so fierce embossed with silver initials! I'm looking to expand my collection further, but I don't know what colour to choose. *decisions, decisions*. So much love for the CSC though! X

P.S - Love your entire outfit. Adorable! x
