Let’s talk about one of my favorite topics, handbags! For months I’ve been on the hunt for a good work bag. With my current job I’m required to bring my laptop home every night. That means I’m carrying everything I normally have in my purse, plus my heavy laptop, and sometimes gym clothes or a lunch box. That’s a lot to carry on a 20-minute walk to-and-from work every day! Since none of my handbags fit everything I need to bring to work, I would constantly find myself carrying my purse on one shoulder and an ugly canvas tote bag on the other.
The Cute Affordable Tote
When on the hunt for a new bag I wanted something that was large enough to fit all my stuff, had comfortable straps, was cute, and affordable. When I was recently in North Carolina, I came across this Altar’d State Dutse Tassel Tote that was on sale for $39.99 (originally $69.95)! It was such a good deal and big enough that I didn’t have to think twice about purchasing it. A nice bonus is this tote comes with a smaller zippered bag on the inside. This is great for keeping everything organized.
My thoughts after using the tote for a week:
Last week I gave it a test run to see how it would hold up as my work bag. Verdict is I love it! It fits everything I need it to carry and is comfortable on my shoulder. Perfect for my 20-minute walk to-and-from work every day. It’s also a great bag as we begin to transition into Spring. I can already picture so many outfits that would go with it! Like my Vici Dolls dress that I’m wearing in these pictures.
Do you have a great go-to bag for work?
