If I'm in the market for a new bag, I tend to want to pair it with a new laptop sleeve. This is because realistically, it's only a matter of time before my bag (no matter if it's a laptop bag or not) becomes a transportation device for my trusty computer. So when I saw (and salivated over) the Vertical Tote ($155) on Flight 001, I immediately went on the hunt for a laptop sleeve that would match the adorable flower print on the inside lining. Lo and behold, the sexy Trexta sleeves I was raving about at Macworld were just what I was looking for.
To hear about my laptop sleeve of choice, just
The Trexta MacBook Air Sleeve ($100) in Coffee is the exact hue of brown that could pair with the tote like a good cube of cheese to a vintage wine. Yummy. The 14.5 inch opening in the bag makes for a perfectly snug home for your Macbook Air, while the Trexta case keeps your lappy from getting scratched and abused from whatever you decide to toss in the tote.
Plus, the rich blue tone of the bag (and lush leather materials on both the bag and the sleeve) should take you nicely into your Fall wardrobe, getting more mileage for your buck, and making these items a worthy investment.
