I love purses. I really do and I have the receipts to prove it. But though I love all kinds of purses, leather totes will always have a special place in my heart. It’s something about how big, wide, and deep they usually are. Stepping out with my trusty leather tote hanging on my right shoulder make me feel like I can do anything and everything.
Totes gives this amazing sense of security. You know everything you need can fit in your tote with more than enough space left. Glasses, pepper spray, tampons, keys, wallet, electronic taser, vibrators, you name it. Knowing you can pack an extra shirt so you can spend the night away from home without worries. It’s almost unexplainable how you can free your mind of all worries if you choose to leave for the day with your tote.
Leather totes also go with almost every outfit. Wearing a smart suit to the office? Carry a tote to make for a polished look. Dressed casually for a date? You can still carry your trusty tote. Going out with your girls? You’ll find a tote is perfect to pack all the leftovers you couldn’t fit in at the restaurant.
Fashionable Leather Totes for Every Occasion
Everlane The Day Market Tote
My personal favorite. This beautifully structured, clean and classic tote is handmade by a husband and wife team in Italy. It’s the perfect tote if you’re trying to make an impression but still need to keep it casual. Angelina Jolie and Meghan Markle have been seen out and about carrying this beautiful tote. Large and roomy to hold anything it also comes in a nice shade of brown.

This one comes in black, dusty rose, taupe, and tan options and it’s not hard to see why it stays sold out all the time.
