Save vs. Splurge: Brown Leather Totes

So I'm a little too obsessed with the new brown leather tote bag from J Crew's Spring Collection and it had me thinking about the perfect brown leather tote. I have brown leather handbags but I don't really own a nice tote bag. Now that I head to the office each day I realize that I like to have a big bag to carry all my stuff in (lunch, morning smoothie, planner, and a good book) so I need it to be a decent size. But I also want that bag to be separate from my day to day purse, since my Beau bag would be a nightmare to clean out to make additional room for all my work necessities.

When doing my research I found 4 great bags at a variety of different price points and beautiful and unique in the own way. Personally if you are looking for a great bag at a not so expensive price I would have to recommend the Urban Outfitters Vegan Leather bag because not only does it look expensive, its also reversible so you get two bags in one (jackpot!). 

Do you have a nice tote bag that you love?
If so where is it from?


  1. I love totes! I have a beige and brown one with both brown and gold chain straps. It's Steve Madden, but I picked it up at TJ Maxx for $50

  8. I received a Longchamp for Christmas and absolutely LOVE it. Even though there isn't anything super special about it, it is a super versatile bag with so many options! As it is on the pricey side, it's something to think about, but I absolutely love mine and use it on a daily basis, no matter what!


  9. These are great options! Love the different price points! I have a Marc Jacobs Nylon Tate... love it!

  10. I've been lusting over that Madwell bag, thanks for the dupes! xx
