Tote Bags!

If you're anything like me you have a closet full of totes, but always searching for even better one! I found a collection by Vera Bradley that I'm trying out for traveling. It's their new Dockside Canvas Collection. So far I like it! I bought the large tote so I wouldn't have to carry multiple bags, because I always seem to do that. I carry my purse, a carry-on, and extra stuff on my arms such as a sweater or light jacket. So, this is to fit it all! {I think!}
I think I just might start using it for work too because my work bag is falling apart!

 Pic at home...both sides have a pocket! Very useful!

Floral print lining. Lots of room. And a newly added requirement for me was a zipper closure on top. Poor visual in this pic. I've owned too many totes with no zipper and that's the one thing that brings their score down from a "10" to a "6" or "Perfect" to "Ehh." Am I being to harsh of a tote grader?!

I don't actually have one of these bags, but I've heard great things: 
Vineyard Vines 
Their bag is designed for lots of colleges and I think they can be contacted to design a bag for sororities! {My sorority had one made my Senior year!} Great idea for Little Sis gifts! 
{and it has a zipper closure!}

I saw this on the website and made me smile for their sponsorship of our state's most famous 3 minute sport!

I guess I'm in coastal mode and mindset being as that I'm at the beach this week! 
What's your favorite totes?!


  1. This bag reminds me of my LL bean tote!! Love it! :)

  2. I love that tote bag! I might investigate...see if I "need" it :) I know I still need to get back to you so we can figure out a date to plan out our bunco :)

  3. I have an issue with totes too. I dont know why I feel I need to have so many but I just do. Slight obsession here. I have never seen that Vera before. Very pretty!

  4. I just got a ThirtyOne tote. I <3 it!!! They're able to be personalized. I have a black one with my name in cream and a big flower pinned on it. Very chic. They have all different prints and options.


  5. I love totes, but the whole bigger tote doesn't work for me because then I just find more crap to cram into it! Love the blog!

    By the way, I'm giving away a heel condom on my blog. Don't let the name fool you, it's an awesome accessory that will spice up and transform any heel! Go to to enter!

  6. Ohhh I love that VB Dockside tote bag!! Although I don't necessarily NEED another bag, I'm sure I could find a use for it :) I have the VV tote and I love it! It has my sorority print on it and I used it a lot for classes. Love the zipper and all the pockets it has!
