Whether you’re carrying sunscreen and a towel or your laptop and a book, you’re going to need a place to store all of your most cherished items. This week’s accessory, the tote bag, can be used absolutely anywhere and anytime. One bag can be used for going to the beach, a weekend getaway or even to your summer internship! It is my favorite accessory because you can get so much use out of a tote; from season to season it is one look that will never fade.
This Fashionista was spotted on her way back from class. Her printed Louis Vuitton bag can either dress up or dress down her look. It works perfectly with her effortless shorts and tank top combo. This bag is just the right size to fit a laptop and a few books but can easily transform into luggage for your weekend getaway (and double as a beach bag). The perfect tote provides just the right amount of space to carry everything you need but isn’t too large that you would feel awkward carrying it to run errands or go shopping.
If you’re looking for a classy tote to last through the years look at stores like kate spade and Tory Burch. If you’re on a college budget, like me, look at Target and Old Navy for your perfect tote. When shopping for a tote you can bring to the beach try J.Crew and Vineyard Vines for a more nautical touch. I recommend buying a neutral color that can truly work for every occasion and will never go out of style. You can either play it safe or be bold and try a patterned bag. Bright colors and prints are fun to mix and match so they can play up your look. No matter where you go this summer, don’t forget to take your tote around with you!
