what i want today: alexandra cassaniti tote bag

i'll admit that i'm starting to tire of the tote bag trend. they're just everywhere right now, so i feel like i could write about a different one every day. and every one seems to be cuter than the last, so i can never choose the one(s) for me. but at the end of the day, they're all just tote bags, suitable for grocery store outings, and maybe the occasional weekend errand-outing.

that's what i love about this version by alexandra cassaniti. it's so much more than just a tote. the leather handles and subtle buckle hardware dress this one up for weekday wear, the high-quality canvas keeps it from looking tired, and the hand-painted detail really makes this tote a show-stopper. plus, after rifling through my tote like a mad woman to find my ringing cell phone every single time, that well-designed zip pocket is feeling like sheer genius.

pick it up for $220 at shopbop, and your summer bag search is at an end.
