Chelsea is a wonderful combination of a tote bag and a backpack. You can wear the Chelsea tote over your shoulder with one strap, or unzip the strap and wear as a backpack. Cinch the bag closed by pulling the shoulder strap through the loop and you're ready to go! The Chelsea tote is loaded with pockets, and you can tuck in the side edges to transform its elegant style into a more funky look.
