After contemplating for a long while, I pulled the trigger and bought the Longchamp Planètes medium tote bag about a month ago. I was looking for a sturdy work bag that would fit my wallet, extras and also my daily lunch, water bottle and possibly a book. I found this bag via Extra Petite and kept it in mind, but I ended up going with the popular Le Pliage. After bringing the Le Pliage home and not loving the bag, I returned it and did more research on the Planètes tote finding nothing but positive reviews. It is indeed much sturdier than the Le Pliage, with thicker material and also a sleeker tone on tone look.
I've been lugging my daily things + lunch in this tote for a little over 3 months now and love it! I didn't realize how much I missed having a fully zipped bag. Since I commute to work everyday I like the security of all my belongings being zipped safely away. The bag is also light as air and compared to my previous purse, making everything feel super light on my shoulder. I did find the flap to be somewhat annoying at first as it got in the way of easily unzipping the bag and taking things out, but I did get over it. I would definitely recommend this bag as an everyday work tote. The overall quality is top-notch and the bag is well-designed in all aspects.
What's your everyday work bag?

So while perusing the sale section one night I splurged and bought this Majesty Peacoat (sz 0P), regularly $298, on sale for $159 + an extra 30% off, making it 129.38 after shipping and taxes. It was such a good deal, I really couldn't turn it down!
perfect (I've bought a petite trench from Banana Republic and had to alter the sleeves by about 2-3 inches) and the overall fit nice and snug, but roomy enough for a sweater. This is probably the best coat I've ever owned in terms of quality and fit. I will definitely be looking to J.Crew for future outerwear!
