Back when I lived in Texas, my trusty little Scion was my primary mode of transportation. Which means I had the luxury of my car trunk as “extra storage” for all the stuff I need throughout the day. Fast forward a few years later, the subway (and my short little legs) is now how I get around. Since I can’t just store my gym duffle in my car any more, and this home girl is not about to schlep two bags around town all day, my everyday purse now has to serve dual purpose. It has to be nice enough to pair with my work clothes, but roomy enough to fit gym shoes and other essentials.
Enter the large structured tote bags to the rescue! These bags have the “formal” shape that compliments any professional (or business casual) attire, while also giving you the space to store all the stuff you might need for a post-office workout. The double whammy of space and structure combo make the totes a grown-up girl’s must have.
