My go-to work outfit & you need this $40 work bag

Sharing one of my go-to outfits for work. When I struggle finding what to wear in the morning, a pair of trousers and a plain top will do. The outfit is basic but I feel great wearing it. This is my 4th pair of the same trousers. I will do a throughout review of these pants very soon. The star of the outfit is this $40 work bag. Towards the end of last year, I was looking for a non-designer tote bag for work. I was looking for a zippered black tote. It's surprisingly hard to find a tote that zips shut for some reason. This bag has so many great features (lightweight, adjustable shoulder strap, outside compartment for easy access). It's made of faux leather but it looks and feels wonderful. I love the look of the pebbled "leather". The material is sturdy and does not flop over. It's also a good size for me. I've been using it for 6 months now and it's holding up really well. If you're looking for an affordable work bag that you can shove everything in and not feel bad about it, I can't recommend this one enough.

Hi Sydney-

Was browsing Coach's website and was curious about your thoughts on the coach parker backpack. I own the $$$ palm spring mini and dont see a new bag but this bag is so cute: One of the CS at Coach told me that this is a very popular collection.

Hi Annie! The Parker backpack is super cute and it does remind me of the Palm Spring Mini. I haven't seen it in person yet but based on the photos online, it seems like a good size for petite ladies, functional and super adorable. When I have a chance to go to the mall, I will be sure to stop by and check it out in person. Have a great weekend, Annie =)
