Hi E! I need help looking for the perfect everyday bag. I tend to like something with a little structure, and it also needs to be big enough to lug around the iPad that is tethered to me like a ball & chain. I also want something that will stand up to a good amount of wear and tear. Hoping to spend $150 or under. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!
Hi Katie! Sorry for my delay; I’d love to help you find a bag. I’d recommend looking for a satchel—they are well structured and would be a great size to hold your iPad, and hand-held/satchel type bags are a classic look that are also going to continue to be “in” for the next season. I found a few ideas for you below:
Cambridge Satchel - comes in several sizes and a variety of colors. Perfect for an everyday bag.
JPK Paris - On sale for $148 during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. Durable material, structured and has enough extra room for your everyday essentials + iPad
Marais - At $25 (during the Anniversary Sale) I’m tempted to get this one for myself!
Tulu - I love the foldover style and optional cross-body strap in addition to the top handles. I thought this color was fun, too.
Gap - Fun style and also comes in a tan color (depending on which would go with your wardrobe better). Again, I love that it has the optional long shoulder strap in case you need to be hands-free.
Big Buddha - Similar style to Mulberry, made of 100% synthetic materials.
Banana Republic - Love the color and you’d be able to hold a lot, too.
Forever21 - I saw this while at the store last week and I love the color, size and style. The price is nice, too.
Fossil - I love Fossil handbags—these satchels are currently on sale and come in a wide variety of colors.
