Spring Totes - 8 of the Best
When out just about anywhere a tote is utterly indispensible, if you’re anything like me and like to carry your worldly belongings around with you wherever you go (without resorting to the wheeled variety of bag which can sometimes look at bit over the top).
The tote bag has now become a fashion statement in its own right, moving on from the basic shopper to something chic, frequently colourful and always with lots of pockets to lose things in. However, to have enough room for purse, make-up kit, hair brush and the occasional pair of rescue flats is adequate recompense for a perennially hunched shoulder and the odd bit of searching.
When travelling the tote is at its best, as it can and will hold everything you need for a journey with little complaint and, if (again) like me and you take a wheeled carry-on with you on a long flight as well, it can balance nicely on this so you don’t even need to carry it.
These are some of my favourites for this season, having bought a Michael Kors tote not that long ago I have little excuse for a splurge, none in fact, although a little coveting can go a long way……..
