1. Most Stylish Way To Carry Your Laptop

The number one reason why I love having a tote bag is that it’s the most stylish way to carry your laptop around. I dislike carrying a million bags around; one handbag for your essentials then one for your laptop. Skip the laptop bag altogether and fit all your accessories and laptop in your tote bag. This bag has room for everything you need to bring with you. A tote bag will elevate your professional look and is much more practical for everyday use.

2. A Tote is Super Versatile and Practical

A tote bag is perfect if you want one bag to be your everything bag. Versatility is key. There are so many ways you can use your tote bag; travel bag, beach bag, gym bag, office bag, diaper bag, school bag, laptop bag, everyday bag, honestly it can be used as your bag for any occasion. Versatility goes hand in hand with being practical. Everyone loves totes bags because they are durable and so easy to store in your home (you can pack them down and save tons of room in your closet and they won’t be ruined). I can’t begin to tell you how many items I have stuffed my tote bag with endless heavy items and yet, the bag is super durable. I also find this tote is a great work bag for female lawyers, commuting to work, and just, in general, an overall great bag for any professional woman.

3. Tote Handbags Are Customizable

Tote bags are totally customizable, and not one looks the same. I love ordering mine from Barrington Gifts.

I have multiple bags from Barrington Gifts, and I just recently added this one with a more neutral palette so that I can easily use it all year around.

4. Convenient and Perfect Size For All The Mamas Out There

I have seen tons of mommies use a tote as a diaper bag, and even though I have no kids, I love using my tote bag to carry all of Margot’s things when we are out and about the city. How many times have you gone somewhere and you had so many bags with you, you ended up forgetting one? It has happened to me, till I switched over to the tote craze. Totes will literally fit anything and everything in them because they are so roomy. If you are a mama you can easily carry all your baby essentials in one bag. This one also has a zipper which is a must in my books, especially since most totes do not have a zipper.
