Crave » The Casual Tote

It’s not always about the brand that makes a great tote. It’s not the designer or how luxurious it is. I can be happy with a $20 tote or a $200 tote. As a mom, I think totes are the most efficient bags. I cannot fit a sippy cup in my Classic 2.55 Medium handbag. I cannot fit a change of clothes for both my girls in my Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 (it does come close).

As my girls grow up, I find myself looking for a larger casual tote. One that I can upgrade from my very sturdy Coach Madison OP Art Sateen Maggie Bag.

I know the Hermes will be a great investment and I find it in the right price range (pre-owned). Another one that I really have my eye on is the Pour La Victoire Lucca Overnight tote. This tote looks almost similar to a Longchamps Planetes Tonal tote.

Is there a tote you recommend?
