Stylist Blogger, Catherine, of charleboischic.com shares why she loves CTW’s Weekender Bag.

Everyone needs a solid weekender bag. I had been searching for the perfect one and just couldn’t commit. I had considered this adorable ban.do heart-adorned bag as well as this Wallace & Barnes for JCrew borrowed from the boys duffel bag, but really wanted to see and feel it in person to get a better sense of the size, weight and fabric. I am picky, and sometimes just need to touch things to see if they feel right. On a shopping afternoon on Cape Cod, I found this canvas and leather bag and fell in love! I love the classic colors (they will never go out of style!) the strength of the leather handles and the option to attach a long strap, and the free monogramming! I couldn’t say no-I chose a beautiful deep red and C.C. both for my initials and for my new baby; Charlebois Chic!

Tunic:Lilly Pulitzer. Sunglasses: Karen Walker. Nail Polish: Essie Tuck It In My Tux. Bag: Chatham Threadworks.

I have already used this for multiple trips to the beach (it holds a few towels, a book, sunscreen, sunglasses, water, and had plenty of room to spare!) and for a quick weekend trip away. Looking down at the monogram always makes me smile; it makes it a little more personal and special that I was able to choose the style and color and no one else has the exact same one!

Hope you had a fantastic weekend! I am traveling to another new spot that I can’t wait to tell you about soon!
