I always carry my life with me, even when I am just running out to grab coffee. The tote bag is my tried-and-true travel companion that never judges my clutter (4 different lipsticks and a half-eaten sandwich, anyone?). And if there's one style advice I can offer, it is that you can never go wrong with a classic camel tote.
