It’s back to school time for many. Thankfully, not for me (my third fall of freedom!). But if I was going back to school, I would be looking for a new bag, hopefully one that can fit my laptop, lunch and usual things. Of course, one ideal option is the Cambridge Satchel which I featured back in the June.

Another option is a tote, which has always worked better for me (my shoulders can’t support a lot of weight). This giant tote by J.Crew will fit pretty much anything and then some. I love the bright red colour: a sure way to keep things cheery when things get tough.
$400 at J.Crew (also in black).
PS. I’m so jealous of Torontonians for getting J.Crew before Vancouver. Argh… I’ll be featuring a lot of things from J.Crew in the next few months — I’m in love!
