I am all about the fashionable alternative to the briefcase. Briefcases are so 1990, don't you think? These days a working girl needs an adorable tote that can take her from the coffee shop, to the office, to dinner/drinks with friends. The perfect working girl tote fits everything a young professional needs to get through the day. AKA - phone/iPad/laptop charger, makeup (for mid-day touch-ups of course!), snacks (candy, fruit, whatever your preference you'll be happy you packed a snack!), headphones, wallet, papers/books/whatever you need to take form work to the office (i.e. planner, notepads, etc.), and whatever else that may help you get through the day a little easier. Your work bag is like a mini traveling office, so it's important to pack what you need!
Remember this post? Well I found this bag at T.J. Maxx and now it's my go-to work tote. But, I'm still on the lookout for another one... maybe a little bit smaller, a cross between a tote and a purse perhaps!
What is your go-to work bag/purse? Any suggestions for my purse dilemma?
