Muted palette

Last week, Eri surprised me with an early birthday present – a backpack from Comptoir des Cotonniers‘s Mademoiselle Plume range!!

Yes, the one I had my eye on at the brand’s latest exhibition.

As all Mademoiselle Plume products, it is made from down and is super light. Backpacks are never described as huggable but it is so soft and cozy, I want to hug it. :) I am blown away by the unique combination of leather, cotton and nylon which makes the backpack so timelessly stylish.  And I can fold it into a very small size, perfect for travel. This one is a keeper for sure.

This backpack is going to be on sale at the end of September. ^-^ Thank you dear Eri for the wonderful surprise!

And I got myself a new every day bag that can double as a diaper bag or an overnight travel bag because of its size and lightness.

I used to buy the majority of my bags at Marc by Marc Jacobs but the same design year after year has left me uninspired so I went looking for something else. That’s when I discovered Liebeskind – Berlin leather brand with an edgy yet practical vibe – perfect for an urban girl like me. ^-^

Unfortunately, they don’t have boutiques in Tokyo but there is a decent assortment on Shopbop that delivers to Japan and some of the bags are on sale right now! I got this one on sale. My husband thinks that it is a very difficult color for a bag and that it blurs me out but I love its understated charm. Muted shades are so in style this season. Plus, it’s so huge I can have everything I need including my son’s collection of mini buses that he always requests on the go.

The photos in the park were taken by the talented Adeyto and the ones on the balcony of my office building were taken by my co-worker Hiro. ^-^
