For the past few months I have been looking for a convertible backpack that I could use for travel and every day, and for work. It seemed impossible to find a backpack that was pretty, made of nice quality, and priced sensibly, in addition to the practical features I wanted, trust me I had been Googling for months! The closest ones I could find were diaper bags and well, that wasn’t a feature I was looking for. *wink*
I discovered Jemma from a PR email in my inbox and saw their leather backpack tote that is a backpack, crossbody, satchel and tote! All four in one – my unicorn of bags! Jemma also has other bags designs great for every day, gym, and work.
My wishlist was that it would carry my laptop and my camera – Benjamin has been on me to find a backpack ever since I pulled a muscle from carrying a heavy shoulder bag.
When Benjamin and I took these photos it was pretty hot out and humid but toward the end of the day it started to cool down a little and toward the end of this particular shoot it started to rain – yay for monsoon season. We got a few shots of the pretty sky and Camelback Mountain before it was really starting to rain and we called it a day.
Here it is as a backpack –
A satchel –
And as a crossbody for a little more security –
And a tote!
You can remove the straps and tuck it inside your purse if you don’t want the backpack straps showing.
You can also clip the insides and it pinches the sides in for a different look.
Another style feature I love is that the inside is bright.
When I see purses that are pitch black inside I just think, oh great I won’t be able to find things very well, it’ll be the black hole all my stuff! So the white and black check print is nice and it makes things cheery!
If you’re looking for a stylish every day backpack that doubles as a work tote, this backpack tote will be with you for the long haul. It comes in three colors.
You’re going to love it, I just couldn’t wait to share this with you. It’s so pretty I love looking at it on my office couch when I’m working. Benjamin asked, “Are you keeping it?” and I said, “I was about to actually buy it, so yes I am keeping it!” haha!

This backpack was given as a gift in exchange for a social media post, and I wanted to blog about it to share it with you because I love it!
