I’ve been searching high and low for a backpack that will be appropriate to make our trip to Europe with. I have spent hours scrolling through various websites to find something that suited me and what I wanted. Something that is sensible, roomy, durable but also chic. I had a vision of what I wanted and I struggled intensely.

Black Friday came along and I had been looking through the same bags I’d been looking at for weeks on Asos and Topshop and other sites. I had taken a brief look at Nordstrom and then moved on in search of a cheaper alternative initially, but on Black Friday I saw the Kate Spade Cameron Street Neema Backpack and fell totally in love. I shrugged it off, knowing that I shouldn’t make such a splurge, and tried to talk myself out of it. Since seeing it that morning, Black Friday was passing by and I couldn’t help but think about that backpack. I knew I wouldn’t find a deal like this on a Kate Spade again. I have always wanted a Kate Spade bag! Finally I confessed to Matthew. Surprisingly Matthew encouraged me to take the plunge and here we are!

I have been wearing this backpack as my everyday handbag since the moment I received it in the post. Nordstrom had advised that it was on backorder and wouldn’t be shipped until the 12th of December, however, my expectations were exceeded. The backpack arrived to me one week after my order in perfect condition. There wasn’t even damage to the box. I was one happy girl.

The Kate Spade Cameron Street Neema Backpack is genuine leather. I obviously purchased it in black. It has gorgeous silky black and white striped lining in the interior which I think is so luxe. I also appreciate the dainty eye for detail, the intricate gold spade by the inner pocket and on the front. So far this bag has been all I dreamed it would be.

I do find that the magnetic latch can be a little hard to do up personally, it is better if you let it go and let the magnet work for itself. The backpack is extremely easy to open. This worried me. I have been thoroughly warned about thieves in Europe. I will ensure that while overseas Matthew will be holding onto the valuables in his pack safe bag.

The bag itself holds a lot more than it lets on. It is comfortable and lightweight while being sturdy and of amazing quality. Nothing about this bag disappoints me and I will not be putting it down anytime soon.

Have you tried any Kate Spade bags?
