This really is the perfect tote. Perfect size. Perfect material. Just the right amount of pretty hardware. I also love that it's expandable in a subtle way. The only thing I would add is one large pocket on the inside for a water bottle.
As much as I love my mini tote, I really love my large tote when I need it! I use it for shopping and when I go to meetings. I actually had the tote last year but did not use it much since there was no where to go during the pandemic but with everything opening up and with meetings in person, I love my larger tote that holds my large water bottle and my bullet journal and my essentials! The grey is such a beautiful color and I love the soft vegan leather;).
