Tote Bags | Splurge vs Save


Over the past week I caught myself admiring a coworker’s tote bag in the elevator every morning. I could’ve sworn that she had the new J. Crew Tartine Satchel ($325) however yesterday when I asked her I was surprised to find out her bag was from Zara and she had purchased it for under $50. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about fall (thanks Nordstrom Anniversary sale) and that I probably need to purchase a new carry all tote bag – one with a zip close. I want something large enough to fit my camera, a pair of flats, my wallet and all the snacks I bring to work 😛 
Sadly though, I don’t have the budget to purchase anything near the price of my Burberry tote (the bag I use most often now). While I love the options above from J. Crew and Tory Burch, I’m thinking the bag I end getting will have to be under $100. So let me know which one of the budget options above is your favorite! Do you have any other suggestions for me for inexpensive carry all tote bags?

    Oh I have been eyeing tote bags also recently! You may be able to snag one from H&M like this one, http://www.hm.com/us/product/15397?article=15397-A. It’s cheaper than the Zara option but looks super similar. Happy hunting!
