Wow. Everyone loves a good TOTE. There is nothing more satisfying than having enough room to stuff your sweatshirt, laptop, AND a water bottle all in one bag. Who cares if it’s super heavy on one side of your body, everything is floating around, and it takes you 5 minutes to locate your wallet in line at the coffee shop. You’re doing great!

Totes come in all shapes and sizes. Some totes make you a walking advertisement, some give you a 90s Mommy vibe, while others signal you are on your way over to purchase some fruit from Trader Joes. Below are some totes that I have noticed around Richmond that inspired my fashion crush.
