shadows9x : I highly recommend the Dagne Dover Signature tote. I have it in Bleecker Blush. It’s life changing. And on sale.

I’m a basic bitch and I have a fjällräven kånken (the laptop version). I cycle to work and it’s easy and there is a lot of space.

I’m the most basic of basic bitches and have used a Longchamp Le Pliage large tote everyday for the past forever years 🙈

Lo & Sons Catalina Delixe in Onyx Recycled Poly. The photos don’t do it justice but it is super sharp in person. And it has a separate compartment below that works great for for shoes or dirty gym clothes. It is also on 50% sale right now.

zl27 :  I might cry…. What looks like the most perfect bag in existence and the company doesn’t ship to the UK nor does it seem to have a UK presence!!

pond :  It really is amazing (I have multiple versions of their bags). Do you have a friend in the US that could ship it to you?

zl27 : i have a couple of possibilities.

Do you/ could you use it as a day to day bag? If you weren’t going to the gym. Or just a weekend/overnight?

I’m now wondering if it is too big?

shadows9x :  I prefer a backpack, and this is the (newer version) of the one I have. https://www.verabradley.com/us/product/Campus-Backpack/25443-25443P74

I like it beacause it has a slot for my laptop (mine is a 17 in laptop and it fits great – plus it looks like the new version slides in from the top, so it may fit bigger). It has plenty of room to fit my purse (a Kate Spade square crossover fo size reference), my gym clothes/shoes, my lunch, a few snacks, and my laptop charger in the main pocket. I keep my glasses and some pens in one of the front pockets, my headhopes on another of the front pockets. Then it has 2 side pockets for a waterbottle. I keep my coffee tumbler in one side, and my shaker cup for the gym in the other side. 

They do have one size bigger, but this one is perfect for me on most days. I have mine in the classic quilted gray, and have other Vera items that match it.

pond :  I’ts not something I would want to use as a purse, but I use it for the gym, carry on, weekend back, etc. They have other great stuff that’s more of an everyday bag. Their new backpack/tote looks great, but I have not seen it in person yet.
