Must-Have: Everlane The Weekender

2014 March 3


We wanted to have a little fun with our favorite new must-have of the moment: Everlane’s The Weekender bag. So we decided to christen it on our trip to Palm Springs last month and did a little photo shoot around our beautiful villa at the Viceroy. I have been looking for a good weekender for a while now and everything I saw was either logo’d out, flimsy or simply not stylish enough. I wanted something that would deliver on function and fashion and allow me to save a little in the bank for the actual getaways, too.


The lovely team at Everlane was kind enough to send me The Weekender I had had my eye on for so long. I fell for this reverse denim fabric when my friend Belle showed up with the tote at dinner one night. It’s a pale grey/blue that complements the rich, chocolate brown leather straps and zipper detailing perfectly. The Weekender is a great size – big enough to carry everything I needed for our desert getaway, but small enough to sling over my shoulder for the short trek from the car to the villa.


And it feels nice and light, but sturdy at the same time. This is a bag that is going to age well and stand up to many more mini-getaways in our future, which is a very good thing. Because we love mini-getaways. The Weekender comes in other colors and fabrics, including suede and striped, but I have to tell you, the reverse-denim has my heart.

Thank you, Everlane. Now I am off to plan another weekend away.

    do you think it would be too big as a carry on for airplanes?

      No, I am sure it would fit just fine. Double check the measurements to be safe, but my guess is that it would be great.

      I use mine as a carry on all the time – love it! It even fits under the seat in front of me when I fly Southwest! I use it a lot for weekend trips or work trips and have even used it for weeklong vacations – it fits quite a lot!
