5 Practical Yet Chic Everyday Totes

A fashion/shopping related question that I’m often asked is, “Do you have any recommendations for an everyday tote?”. So, below are some totes I’m loving now, because they are lightweight, minimal/neutral in design and color (read: can coordinate with many outfits), and have great style. 
MZ Wallace ‘Metro’ Tote
The MZ Wallace tote pictured above is extremely lightweight, can really be stuffed (perfect for commuters, travelers, and moms!), can be conveniently folded up when needed, and is reasonably priced. It’s no surprise that this bag has been extremely popular with the street chic crowd since it debut in 2010.
Mansur Gavriel Tote

The Mansur Gavriel is my favorite right now and is high up on my wish list. Aside from its sleek design, I love the red interior: a little surprise that makes the bag distinctive and oh so chic!

The 2 totes below by Topshop and Mango are great basic totes that are versatile, and look more expensive than their very reasonable prices would suggest.

Last but not least, the ‘St. Louis’ tote by Goyard is an all-time classic bag that I’ve loved for years. Several years ago, I debated between getting this bag and a Louis Vuitton tote. I ended up getting the LV, but have always regretted not getting the Goyard. Definitely on my wish list now!

    Oh man the Mansur Gavriel tote is totally on my wish list too, but I can not find it anywhere! Net a Porter has been sold out for ages. So sad! Where else can this be found? xoxo, Bethann

      I know, they are so hard to locate which kind of makes me want it more! The black with red interior will be available in April in these stores: Nicole Kwon, Mille, Ethos, Kirna Zabete. If you're interested, I would call them since I'm sure they will sell out!
