Satchel Backpack: Which Colour Is The Best?

Leather Satchel

A few months ago I packed up my little flat in East London and I moved down to the seaside town of Margate. I absolutely love it here, it’s like toy town with a big ferris wheel, vintage swings on the beach, pastel coloured buildings and street art on disused walls. It’s pretty amazing! The only drawback is the commute; Instead of hopping on the 55 Bus, I have to get on a high-speed train into London, which takes a little longer. To make sure I use the travel time wisely, I often pack a laptop or iPad in my bag (as well as snacks /  charger / drink) and as a result I have found myself needing larger handbags. I know I have a pretty huge collection of handbags, but most of them are a little too small for my commuter days, so I have started investing in a few larger sized handbags. The most recent on my wish list, a Leather Satchel!

The Leather Satchel Co.

I have a few handbags from The Leather Satchel Co. and I absolutely adore the quality and designs of their bags. They have a whole host of designs, many of them based on the classic satchel design, and they come in a vast array of colours too. They are all British made too.

 Which Colour Is The Best?

The Leather Satchel Co. have the perfect design of Satchel Backpacks, the only problem is, I can’t decide which colour I like the best! I ordered both the red and the Navy with the intension of keeping one and returning the other. The only problem is, I can’t decide which to keep and which to return! Is the Red one better, or the Navy blue?! Part of me thinks the Red one is cuter, but the Navy might go with more outfits. I just can’t decide.

Please help me! Which handbag should I keep and which should I send back?

    Love this bag! The red is more fun but the navy is more practical and and would definitely go with every outfit. I have this problem all the time, I always want to go with the fun colour but end up being practical. Go red!!

    Yeah, I’m not going to be any help…. So we already know that the navy one is more practical but the red one is more fun and that’s where I’m stuck. What’s the problem with keeping both? I can give you a ton of reasons why you would absolutely have to have one of each.

      I did notice you like the darker tones! Thanks for your thoughts xxxx

    The red is beautiful but I’d go for the navy since it’ll be a more versatile colour with outfits!

    The red is fun but the blue has a certain charm about it, not just practicality but classic looking too 🙂 if you can, keep both!!!!! Sometimes we need a bit of fun to brighten up our day. Keep us posted on your final decision.
