A Tres Chic Bag by August

I love, love, love this bag. Designed by the company August, this lightweight, buttery leather bag called the Marais Market Tote is the perfect bag to take with you - everywhere! From the farmer's market to running errands, this is THE bag to have.  I'm normally a black tote bag type of gal but this tan is so light and neutral, and goes with everything. (Naturally!)  

The designers, Charles and Jenna Jackson, have a wonderful story about how they started their line.  In 2011, they packed up their San Francisco apartment and traveled the world.  From Africa to Europe and Asia, their goal was to be able to seek out the perfect luggage that would withstand all of those elements.  And voila! August is born.

What I also love about this company August is that for every bag sold, they will donate a bag to Operation School Bell.  Operation School Bell provides clothing and personal products to underprivileged students in the LA Unified School District.
