When Cuyan agreed to partner with me for this What’s in my bag blog post, I was super excited! For this summer, I wanted the Cuyana weekender bag. The bag has the perfect size to put your cosmetics, shoes and favorite clothes!

Handcrafted in Turkey from cotton canvas and Vachetta leather, the canvas weekender bag is designed to travel well and often! Spacious and extensible, Cuyana Weekender bag is in it for the long haul. This bag embodies the essence of timeless style with its durable cotton canvas exterior, signature gold metal hardware, adjustable nylon strap and tubular top leather handles. The bag comes in three styles: blue, black and my favorite in natural/grey.
