Is there anything so versatile as the tote bag? Right now my workday involves jaunts all over the city, from Manhattan to Brooklyn to Queens and back again. My must-haves include my laptop, a notebook and pen, and other necessary day-to-day accessories. So while I normally love purses on the more sleek and small side a tote is my go-to bag right now!
And retailers galore have options I love at various price points. I tend to go for neutral colors since totes are so big, but many of my picks come in multiple colors and one of the Free People totes is even reversible for those days when we just can’t pick which color to tote around.
