I couldn't wait for a chance to wear it, so when I had to head into town first thing for a dentist appointment (9am on Saturday, awesome) I threw it on with my green leather shorts and some cycle-friendly shoe boots.
It also gave me a chance to use my new Zatchels satchel. I have to admit, I've never bought into the hype of satchel bags. I know that everyone in the world went mental when Zatchels had that sale on, but I refrained from ordering as I wasn't sure I was that fussed about one. I've always preferred the less rectangular shapes, like my Brit-Stitch one, but when I saw that Emily was getting rid of this one, in what would have been my choice of print, I decided to take a chance on it and see what I thought of them.
It was small enough to fit easily into the basket of my Pashley, for cycling into town, but at the same time, big enough that I could easily carry all of the essentials, plus three paying in books, and a book for reading in the waiting room at the dentist - all important things! So I was impressed with it on that score. I must admit, the fact you have to buckle / unbuckle it every time you want something is a bit of a nuisance, but in the end I just kept my phone in my pocket, which is the thing I'd usually want to access quickly, so it wasn't a major problem. And I do really like the colour. So, all in all, I guess I'm quite taken with it.
