I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a new bag. It has been a while since I’ve gotten a new everyday one – I’ve been using J.Crew’s New Uptown Tote (current version here) for years, and it has held up surprisingly well. For my daily bag, I need something that’s roomy enough for a laptop, and that can hold up to a bit of heavy wear.
I love being able to throw my water bottle, wallet, a pack of tissues, a few options for lip color, an umbrella, a sweater, and anything else I might need into one place. I also love being able to set my bag down on, say, the ground, and not panic about scuffing it or ruining it! I think it’s smart to invest in a leather option for this reason, but if the price isn’t right, there are tons of sturdy, durable non-leather options as well. Shop some of my favorite bags below.
