Hi Jaclyn. Looking for some advice on work bags/totes. I travel extensively for work and am looking for a work bag that has a laptop sleeve/pocket and can hold a bunch of other travel essentials (snacks, folders, small toiletry bag. So bigger than a traditional laptop bag). I'm having trouble finding something that doesn't look like a regular old laptop bag, because I'd like this to be fashionable enough to use on the weekends as well. Would prefer to have a crossbody strap too. Thanks so much!
since this college grad is about to enter the world of working professionals, I'm in the market for a bag that is both super handy and can carry all my work day necessities [toiletries, notebooks, computer, etc.] and is stylish enough for both work and days off. and since I have no idea where to even begin the hunt, I thought I'd turn to you! and since I'm poor, $100 is pretty much the top of my budget. thanks!!! xoxo
Got this question in my Tumblr inbox:
long-time reader, first time asker… on the prowl for a durable gym bag… ideally something more “chic” than “sporty” but at the end of the day, let’s be honest: it’s carrying my sweaty clothes and running kicks (possibly a yoga mat too?). not wanting to break the bank but wanting a quality bag. thank you so much! — littlemisshappyhour
I use my Lululemon bag for the gym (and they do have really cute bags), but I’m on an anti-Lulu kick right now so I’m going to try and give you some other options. (They’re also really overpriced SO THERE’S THAT.)
Fabletics has a cute black/blue gym bag for just $32! If you want to sign up, please consider using my referral link. (Thank you!)
I am LOVING this Eddie Bauer gym tote/weekender. It’s $70, but it can also carry a yoga mat. It also has a separate pouch for carrying water.
Gap has a gym bag that’s marked down on clearance right now to $30 (from $50).
I don’t know if you saw this recently on my blog, but Target has a C9 by Champion gym tote that’s almost identical in design to the Lululemon bag I use. It’s only $30!
Zappos has discounted two really nice North Face gym bags. The first is a yoga tote (with yoga-mat carry across the top) that is now $65 (from $89). Love the gray and pink color. The second is a slightly smaller, less structured tote for $56 (from $70).
I keep hearing really great things about Manduka’s yoga mats. They range in price on Amazon for the PROlite version, but are about $50-$70, depending on what color you want. If you don’t want to spend that much, I recommend checking at local Marshall’s or TJMaxx stores. They usually sell high quality yoga mats for next to nothing (check the brands/reviews online before purchasing).
