Hobo is a solid brand for affordable, quality leather. They have a very popular, long-running bestseller, the Lauren wallet, but today I’m featuring this shoulder bag, the Friar. Note that the leather has a soft, distressed look to it, which can be great, but some colors may veer a little too far into the “ooh, she needs a new bag” territory, at least for a work environment. I like this gray “granite” color the best, which Nordstrom, Zappos, and Amazon all have for $238. Hobo ‘Friar’ Shopper
