WHICH BAG ARE YOU CARRYING?I am carrying the Pebble Grain Tote in Black. It’s so versatile!
WHY DO YOU LOVE IT?This bag is the perfect size for me to take my laptop and other essential items with me to and from work, errands, and whatever else the day may bring. The rolled handles are so comfortable on my shoulder too, so I don’t get tired of carrying it around.
DO YOU HAVE ANY STYLING ADVICE?I love the rich black Pebble Leather with the contrasting tan trim. This contrast means I don’t have to worry about what color shoes, belt or other accessories I’m wearing that day—it goes with everything! To dress this bag up for after-work plans, I tie on one of my mom’s silk scarves at the base of the handle.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SHAPE AND WHY?The tote, of course! I specifically love this tote shape that tapers a bit towards the bottom, as it gives me the right amount of depth and storage without being too bulky.
WHAT’S ONE THING YOU ALWAYS HAVE IN YOUR BAG?I always have a Pink Lady apple in my bag! It’s the perfect portable snack that can tide me over in between meals, especially if it’s a busy day and I’m on the go for a while.
MOST PRACTICAL ITEM IN YOUR BAG RIGHT NOW:The most practical item in my bag has got to be my water bottle. I actually can’t function when I am dehydrated (which my friends and family know well!) so, practically speaking, I always need to have hydration on hand!
MOST SURPRISING ITEM IN YOUR BAG RIGHT NOW:This may sound funny, but the item that still feels crazy for me to have in my tote is…my car keys! After living in NYC for almost 15 years and not having a car, it still feels foreign to me to have car keys in my bag and to drive to and fro.
