The weekends are typically fast-paced for me so when a long weekend rolls around, I try to take advantage and do things that I don’t get the chance to do often. One of my favourite things to do is stop by a café in the city and my pick is always Dineen Coffee Co. (although their latte art has been a bit lackluster). For work, running errands and weekends, I’ve been turning to one statement piece for my on-the-go adventures.

Meet the Rogue bag. A perfect mix of sophistication and cowboy punk that will take you from work to play. This Coach 1941 number for their Pre-Fall 2016 collection does not disappoint. Their latest collection was inspired by the West so most of the pieces exude a free-spirited, Western vibe. The bag was crafted with exceptional details, including a gunmetal pearl studded design on the exterior and beautiful suede lining on the interior. I balanced out the toughness of this bag with a romantic outfit to match my aesthetics. The short-frilled sleeves and flattering lace neck collar brings out the femininity in the look. I opted for a pair of lace-up flats, but if your preference is something a little less girly, a pair of ankle boots (studded or not) makes for a sweet, edgy replacement.
