Finding the Perfect Tote

1 // 2 // 3
4 // 5 // 6

Fall is right around the corner and somehow I always get into the same "back to school" mode for myself this time of year {old habits must die hard...and yes, I've already taken care of Ethan's "back to school" backpack!}. I've been toting around loose notebooks and files for work and I think I need to finally invest in a proper tote, but the question is, which one?? I'm definitely drawn to one above, but would love your input. Do you have a favorite tote that's functional for work but still cute for the weekends {and let's be honest, diapers and wipes too}? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Weekend!

  1. I love Cuyana versus the Madewell tote. I liked the leather a lot better after seeing them both in person. I also have a Cuyana wallet that is so nice!

    1. I'm definitely leaning towards the Cuyana! And I agree, the wallet looks amazing too!

  2. I have my eye on this (haven't bought it yet) but so cute!

  3. Love my Cuyana! I have the classic soft tote, and that thing has withstood the trials and tribulations of being a working mom during the week, and sport mom during the weekend (I am HARD on my bags). I also have the Madewell transport tote, which has not seen the light of day since I got the Cuyana. As mentioned above, the Cuyana leather is better! I liked it so much that I purchased the travel case set soon after.

  4. I have one from GiGi + New York that I use as Vi's diaper bag and I love it! BUT if I got a new one it'd be a Cuyana bag! xo jillian - cornflake dreams
