People's comments on Angie's post got me thinking about my everyday bags - I usually wear two together, so I can keep my valuables close to me when teaching/ on public transport but also bring my laptop etc.

I have a black nylon backpack/ wheelie for when I need to cart around more stuff (hello whiteboard eraser/ pens/ laser pointer/ notebook/ pen/ laptop/ charger/ power bank/ umbrella/ water bottle etc), but I like this chocolate brown leather backpack when I need to look a little smarter.
It's much sleeker but my jacket fits, plus it has a padded laptop sleeve.
*Tip: the menswear section is great for more practical designs in brown leather goods!*

As for the belt bag/ bum bag/ fanny pack/ waist belt (whatever you want to call it, there are so many names!) I usually wear it like a bandolier (crossbody sling) if I'm out casually at the weekend (no backpack).
*Versatility: It has vertical strips at the back for the 'bum bag' strap, or you can clip it to the D rings at the ends as a shoulder purse*

(PS - I realise I haven't posted a What I Wore/ OOTD in quite a while. Sorry!
~ I never thought I'd own cargo pants, let alone satin ones, but now I have two lol!
~ I changed my shoes because the bronze loafers now pinch at my toes uncomfortably after a few hours. I've used leather stretcher on the vamp/ instep but I'm debating whether to keep them still, since they work for short distances... *Sigh* how frustrating when it's a HEWI as well (bronze shoes)!
