Growing up, I always wanted to dress like an adult. I would put on my mom’s clothes and heels, but my ultimate favorite item was her purse! When I got my first purse it was a big deal because I felt like I finally became a “big girl.” Purses are a necessity for many Fashionistas because they carry so many important things like our phones, planners, cameras, etc. Since our purse goes everywhere we do, why not pick the one that best fits you?!
As college students, the perfect bag for us is the tote bag. I absolutely love totes because they are the perfect size to fit your books for class as well as the perfect size to use for your day-to-day bag, Check out this Fashionista’s tote bag from Vera Bradley. She spices things up with pairing this tote with a black and white outfit and allowing it to really stand out! Tote bags have made a comeback this season and it’s definitely because they are practical, yet stylish. Try getting a tote in a color that matches the season or a neutral colored one that will go with a variety of outfits. Take a look at the Michael Kors and Burberry tote bags—I’m obsessed!
If you adore the pattern of this Fashionista’s tote, you’re in luck because Vera Bradley has a collection of all kinds of accessories with awesome designs. Why not match a wonderful wallet or clutch with your tote?
