Everyone has that big carry all tote in their closet, right? Well mine used to be this one from my old day job. I loved it, but the other day trying to shoot something with it, I realized it was a hot mess. It’s not structured at all so the moment you set it down it just becomes a pile of leather and your things fall out of it. I’d been eying this Madewell Transport tote for at least a year now, but never wanted to pull the trigger. It was in my opinion, a bit overpriced and since I had a tote, I knew I didn’t NEED it. I mean you never need it, right?

But when it was included on the Nordstrom sale, I started to really consider it. I still didn’t want to spend the money because I’ve been super cheap lately, but I couldn’t pass up the deal. I knew I’d regret it after the sale if it was back to full price and I was still swooning over it. So here I am, with my new tote ready to head to a coffee shop to work for a bit. It also comes in a few other colors and I can’t recommend it enough!

    I was the exact same way when purchasing the transport tote. I wanted it for years but couldn’t quite pull the trigger than when I did, I was over the moon happy about it. I used that bag everyday for two years for work and LOVED it. Still use it here or there. It’s a great bag and worth the investment.
