But recently, Lo & Sons redesigned the whole bag so that the laptop sleeve is a separate, external pocket. My Catalina Deluxe tote is my go-to bag for any weekend getaway. Just when I don’t think I’ll have enough space for something, I do. I love the zipped pocket at the bottom for shoes and any toiletries. The customer support team is really kind and accommodating.

The strap is really durable, and can be taken off to have the purse turn into a clutch. I can tell this bag will last for multiple seasons. Here’s what I keep in my purse on a typical day of heading to the office, running errands, or going out with friends.
If there’s one thing I’ve spent too much time looking for it’s the perfect purse. But, three years ago I finally found my match. With this Lo & Sons Pearl review, I think I’ll convince you that this is, in fact, the perfect purse. I recently bought a Catalina weekender which is a great carry on when I travel with my 2 year old – I love how the top zips completely open. Any seasoned New Yorker will tell you that one of the best parts of living in the city is escaping it—and more often than not, these escapes come in the form of a long weekend. Which means that with a bit of trial and error, you can become an expert at throwing your outfit essentials into a bag before ferrying yourself upstate or out east.

I teach 9-5 professionals how to maximize their limited time off with carefully planned out itineraries, long weekend inspiration, and general travel planning tips. The Pearl is made of durable Saffiano leather, which is both scratch and water resistant (perfect for on-the-go). With that being said, day trips are my jam, yo! (Yo!? Where’d that come from?! I never say yo!) I truly believe you can see/eat/do so much in one day, without taking off any days from work.
As for me, I may not need another one…but that plum color is awfully cute. In safer times, I used it as a work-to-gym bag, and it fit all the essentials for both purposes, but still managed to feel fairly light and very comfortable on my back or shoulder. I then brought the bag home to the Jersey Shore for Memorial Day Weekend.

There’s minimal branding on this bag, except for a small Lo & Sons wordmark debossed in the leather on the front pocket, and their logo on the metal zipper pulls around the main compartment. Both are so subtle that they’re easy to miss, helping to keep an air of sophistication around the bag. – the mouth of the zipper doesn’t go down far enough. This means that when the bag is at max capacity, it’s a struggle to take out my – admittedly, oversized – laptop. I usually have to take out my toiletry bag first, then my computer.
