With the start of university looming, last minute preparations under way and after purchasing nearly every style of kitchen equipment possible, it has finally dawned on me that the one thing that I probably could do with is a fail-safe tote bag. This doesn't just apply to my university needs, my mum uses one of mine every day on her way to work for the oddly shaped items and big notebooks that her normal bag simply won't cater for. Additionally, after spending endless pounds on books, home bits, food, deposits etc.. I'm in no way to buy a big pricey bag (my Mulberry filled that criteria thank you very much) so an affordable replaceable bag that can carry books and folders seems like the perfect thing.
The thing with a nice tote, is that although they may not be necessarily weather savvy and may not last forever, unlike most bags they come with some beautiful designs illustrated onto them- making them all the more fun to purchase and pick a truly unique piece. Below, after trawling Esty (a time consuming and v. enjoyable past time) I have selected my top totes! Which is your favourite? Have you seen any gorgeous totes on the 'net?
