I have to admit that I am a bag collector. I have TONS of bags in all shapes and sizes. I have bags from luxury brands and sports brands. I have bags that are a HUGE range of sizes, styles, shapes, and colors. The problem that I find is that I rarely get out of my bag funk and that I end up carrying the same bag all of the time. Well, my newest obsession is with the Simply Vera Wang Catherine Tote in Buff Ruched. This tote is amazing! I am going to share with you why I love this tote so much by sharing with you the five places that this tote has traveled with me.
5 Places the Catherine Tote Has Gone
#5 — To All of My Mom-Responsibilities
As a mom, I have 101 things that I have to do with my children. I love that the Catherine Tote perfectly goes to all of them with style! I can run to the PTO meetings, head to parent/teacher conferences, or on a field trip with the same tote. The size of the tote allows for me to carry a notebook or folder with all of the information in it. This is perfect since so many totes are not a good size for various activities. I also love that this tote is structured so I can use it with a little or a lot! You don’t notice when it is almost empty vs when it is stuffed full!
#4 — Up, Up and Away
That’s right, the Catherine Tote was the perfect bag for our vacation. I was shocked that I could carry enough extras to surprise the kids and entertain them during our plane ride. I was also excited that it had so much room that I could bring back the few small souvenirs that I picked up while traveling. It really was a tote to maximize my vacation. Plus when I emptied stuff out in the hotel room, it was still looking great when I carried very little in it.
#3 — To the Beach and Beyond
Everyone knows that you need a great tote when you head to the beach. I loved that the Catherine tote was able to carry all of my beach essentials in one bag. I could fit a beach towel, magazine, sunglasses, flip flops, and sunscreen all in there. It was a great accompaniment to my outfit for beach day too. I love that it still looked stylish and cute and that sand easily brushed right off of it.
#2 — To the Gym
Another place that the Catherine Tote has traveled with me is to the gym! I love that I was able to carry it with a spare pair of shoes, extra clothes to change into, and make up that I needed for touch ups. I was able to go to the gym and actually get ready for work afterwards without it being a question of how I was going to present myself. (On a side note, I work mainly from home but part time from the gym’s childcare room!)
#1 — Everywhere I Have Needed to Go
Rarely do I find a bag that can really go everywhere with me. This one has honestly been the perfect tote. I have taken it to church, to the beach, to plays, to activities, board meetings, shows, and more. I have never found a place where it was not too dressy or just too casual. I have also been able to use it as a laptop bag when traveling or heading to the coffee shop to work.
So I have to admit that I LOVE The Simply Vera Wang Catherine Tote and think that you will love it too! The best part is that is a great price and a bag that truly is a great value!
