My Fav Totes for Spring + Life in Pictures



I have a confession.... I've never owned a backpack in college. OK I might have had one my first couple weeks of freshman year, but that doesn't count because I didn't know what the heck I was doing my first week year of college. There's something about backpacks that are just....predictable. Instead of carrying a backpack, I have always carried large tote bags and purses to class!! I love that I can keep everything I need for class (laptop, small books, planner, pens, chapstick, etc.) in my bag just like I would in a backpack, but I still get to compliment my look with a cute bag! If you're someone who takes classes that require carrying large 1000 page text books around, then this post may not be for you, however these can be great purses to add to your shopping list/wish list! 

Things You NEED In a Tote: 


  • A Thick Strap: You don't want to be carrying everything around just for one of the straps to break. Make sure the purse of your choice has strong, thick straps that will last awhile. BONUS if you can find a purse that has a shoulder strap to wear it as a cross body! (See Tory Burch/Target bags)
  • Separators and Large Pockets: Built-in pockets are a lifesaver for keeping things you need for class separate from your normal purse belongings (wallet, phone, keys, etc.)
  • Zippers: You'll especially want a purse that has a zipper across the top to keep everything in place. Plus they add extra security if you're worried about being pick pocketed. 
  • Phone Holder: You'll never lose your phone in your purse again :)


I hope to get my hands on one of these cute bags - the colors are perfect for spring and summer!!
