Back-To-School Essential: Cambridge Satchels

Walking around campus or to and from your job requires more than just a plain bag — you need something eye-catching, functional and fashionable. Something lasting and timeless is great, too!

Whether you are going back to high school, college, or even entering the workforce, The Cambridge Satchel Company has a bag for you! They have so many different sizes, styles, and colors, you are sure to find exactly what you need.

I have been a huge fan of the company since I discovered them in the spring of 2012.  I used my first summer paycheck to purchase one of their classic 13-inch bags in pink.

The 13-inch is the perfect size for all of my daily necessities and it functions well as my carry on purse when traveling.  These bags are so structured and well-made-I’ve been using mine for over a year and it is still in perfect condition!

I also have the 11-inch satchel in Sweet Pea. This color is absolutely beautiful! With this picture I won Pic of the Week and I was featured on The Cambridge Satchel Company’s blog and social media outlets! The 11-inch is great if you don’t have many things to haul around with you. Tucking the shoulder strap inside the purse turns it into an adorable clutch for night!

The backpack is a great option for students who need to carry their laptop and notebooks to class. Their color options (red or brown) are traditional fall colors that will also carry over nicely to winter and spring.

The Music Bag or Batchel options are perfect if you are in the workforce. They are larger sizes that offer more space for paperwork, supplies and other necessities.

Although the bags are a bit pricey, I can assure you they are worth the price.  They are versatile, durable, and timeless.  They are a perfect gift idea, and you can even get your initials embossed on the front flap.  The Cambridge Satchel Company offers so many colors to choose from.  If you are willing to sacrifice some quality for a lower price, they have a clearance section featuring bags that have slight cosmetic flaws for a huge discount.  I am absolutely obsessed with these bags and they are a staple fall essential no matter your age!
