This image came across my email this week and I have to admit, it stuck with me. Bravo Internet advertising.
You see, I've admired Madewell's monogramed totes for a while, but I've gotten to a point in my life where my shoulders (and back) no longer want to carry around a heavy tote.
What's that? Just don't fill it to the brim?
Oh no my friends, I can't be trusted.
So, I was delighted to see this new collection with Cambridge Satchel company. I've been on the lookout for a crossbody bag that can hold just the basics (phone, wallet, keys) while leaving your hands free for more important matters (like carrying coffee). This mini guy seems like he would fit the bill. And for right around $100, I may just have to treat myself to a back-to-school bag.
If you're looking for a little bit more space, the classic is calling your name.
The entire lineup is full of gorgeous fall colors, so everyone can get in the back to school spirit.
