Sunday Shopping: A pretty, practical & professional lunch bag that isn’t ugly AF

I have issues with lunch bags. Like therapist-chair, WHY CAN’T I FIND WHAT I WANT.. issues.

Until I found this lunch bag. It is SoYoung Lunch Poche Bag and I found it on Anthropologie.

It has everything on my list:

  • Cute AF – with different colour ways
  • A detachable LONG STRAP to sling over your shoulder to be hands-free as you’re wrangling a work bag, your child’s lunch bag and daycare spare clothes, your actual child, two bunnies and a partridge in a pear tree*
  • A top handle for you to easily snag it out of the fridge one-handed instead of having to grab it with both hands

  • A back pocket in mesh to hold extra things like cutlery
  • Lightweight
  • Insulated to keep cold or hot
  • Dimensions: 22cm height – VERY tall, I can fit about 3 Tupperwares in there, stacked and for the top, I measured it as 24cm length x 15.5cm width
  • I can also fit a larger Tupperware at the bottom but it sort of chunks it out, and the bag gets a little shorter due to the extra space it uses if the Tupperware doesn’t fit perfectly (if you know what I mean)

  • Large enough to hold a lunch box, a wide mouth mason jar of a cashew smoothie as your afternoon pick me up snack, and a few pieces of fruit
  • Did I mention how cute it is!?

*The last two things may not actually be real things I carry on a regular basis, but I COULD. I have a child.

It also comes in SO MANY DIFFERENT COLOURS

The only thing I could have asked for more was a separate zippered long compartment at the side or a removable section where you can stick cutlery into the side, that you can remove and wash if needed.

And maybe another section for a water bottle but that’s really not something I carry often, to be honest.

I bought it, and I love it.

I recommend it highly because it is the first time I’ve found something big enough to fit my entire lunch and all of my snacks in one bag without carrying a literal tote bag (which I’ve done before).

That is all.

      I can also fit a larger Tupperware at the bottom but it sort of chunks it out, and the bag gets a little shorter due to the extra space it uses if the Tupperware doesn’t fit perfectly (if you know what I mean).

      I was worried it wouldn’t fit my large, square Tupperware, and I did fit it in there, and it was fine, it just was bit chunky on the bottom.
