Street Style: The Great Escape

By Kestrel Jenkins

“We travel not to escape life, but for life to not escape us.” 

Wild Tussah’s bag was the perfect travel companion for a wander south of the border into Baja Mexico. If you haven’t yet, check out Danica’s bags – they’re super wearable, useful and carry an incredible story.
