Your Guide to Portland Leather Bags

Hi, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes!

If you’ve been following along with the blog for a while now, you know how much I love Portland Leather bags. It all started three years ago when a friend introduced me to the brand—and the rest is history!

I remember buying the Butterfly Bucket Bag in 2020 and posting about it every week. At the time, I wasn’t being paid or gifted to do so, I just really loved the bag—and still do! My incessant posting led to my now-partnership with the brand! See—you never know how things will shake out, so post, post, post!

Let’s get started with my list of favorites from Portland Leather!

Envelope Crossbody

There is no better bag for traveling or on-the-go living than the Envelope Crossbody. This bag features an adjustable/removable crossbody strap, wristlet strap, and four card slots. I rely on this bag when I want to be hands-free, or when I’m tired of carrying a heavy bag. It fits just what I need: my phone, two lip balms, a granola bar, and sunglasses!

Circle Crossbody

Finding a leather circle bag that’s high-quality and affordable is no easy feat, and Portland Leather nails it with this one! I’m obsessed with the tulip pink leather—my favorite color, of course. This bag features interior and exterior pockets—plus it fits more than you may think! This is the large crossbody for reference, but it’s also available in a smaller version. I love pairing it with outfits that need a little extra pop of color. Whether it’s the dead of winter or middle of summer, you can always catch me styling this bag!

Crossbody Tote Bag

This is the newest bag in my collection, and definitely the one that I waited the longest to pull the trigger on! I always knew I wanted this tote, but when you already have a million tote bags in your closet, it can be hard to commit to another one. I finally decided to go for it and couldn’t be happier with my decision. The patina of the leather is stunning, and it fits everything I need and more!

Butterfly Bucket Bag

This is the bag that started it all! It will always hold a special spot in my heart! This crossbody features two interior side pockets for the essentials, like lip balms, hand sanitizer, and pens. It’s the best of both worlds: soft leather, yet structured design! Truly perfect for anyone who tends to carry their whole life with them!

Metro Mini Crossbody

Shop Here

If you want to talk about a bag that’s been through it, the Metro Mini Crossbody would be the perfect example! This Portland Leather bag is definitely my go-to for nights out, and it’s seen its fair share of the world! I’ve carried it through rain, snow, hail—you name it. The leather has stood up to it all! This bag is the most structured PLG bag I own, and features one small interior pocket.

The Bucket Backpack

Shop Here

If you’ve always wanted a leather backpack, let this be the one you choose! I don’t even know where to begin with this bag. It was my go-to last summer—so much so that I managed to get steak sauce on it while using it on vacation! Don’t worry—I got it out LOL!

It’s also great for shopping trips because you can shove all of your purchases inside and keep buying more! It features a magnetic snap closure, interior pocket, and adjustable buckle straps for added comfort.

Mini Crossbody Tote

Shop Here

Honey, I shrunk the crossbody tote! Yes, I have the miniature version of the tote bag I talked about above—come at me! I love the big front flap pocket because it’s perfect for sunglasses, keys, or my phone. The interior of the mini version doesn’t have any pockets, but I make it work by using a couple different pouches to keep things organized.

If you’re looking to give Portland Leather a try, I would recommend this bag. It’s iconic PLG!

Well, that’s all I have for you today! I hope you enjoyed this guide to Portland Leather and if you start your own collection, I would love to hear about it!

Until next time!
