Stripes + Lace

I have a confession to make…. I am a total bag lady. In fact, the bigger the bag, the better. During the week I can’t seem to part ways with anything in my bag for fear of needing it and not having it! Since I feel the need to carry everything imaginable in my bag, more often than not I use a carry-all bag during the week, especially for work to hold everything! 
This Barrington St. Anne’s Tote has been a game changer! I love that these bags are customizable with different prints along with your initials. I designed my bag with a classic navy & white stripes and (of course) added my monogram for a personalized touch. This bag is so spacious. I have carried it to work daily with my planner, iPad, notebooks, etc. and still had room. I also carried it as an overnight bag this past weekend and it held just enough! This bag could be used for anything, seriously!
The fact that it is very versatile, sturdy, and can be carried with any outfit is just a bonus! I plan on taking it with me to the farmer’s market this weekend!
