I recently started a new job in Chicago. I couldn’t be more excited, except for the fact that I’ve reverted to carrying my college backpack. Not so fashionable.
I take public transportation to and from work, which I don’t mind at all. I love that it’s conveienet and I can relax and read a book on the train. It’s just not the kind of place I want to be carrying around my precious Louis Vuitton tote bag, especially when people are getting robbed on Michigan Avenue in broad daylight.
To put my mind at ease, I invested in a simple tote bag free of any designer logos or prints. J.Crew’s Brompton hobo had everything I was looking for-durable leather, a shoulder strap and enough room to fit my laptop. If you need a simple everyday work bag there are a lot of great options out there.
