So I have to say, my favorite bag of the season is this cognac tote from Nordstrom. Believe it or not, this tote is under $50! I am very impressed with the quality & size. It's perfect for days when you want to throw in lots of extras; like pair of shoes or a lunch for work. The bag has a magnetic closure at the top and also comes in gray.
