Hey pretty girl! Welcome back to the blog! After over two years of working from home, I have returned to the office – twice a week. I am probably one of the few people who have no issues with it. I absolutely loved working from home, which is something that I didn’t think I would enjoy…but I do like getting dressed up and gracing the world (random ppl and co-workers) with my presence. LOL!!! But…for whatever reason my employer has decided that I must return to the office twice a week and I’m okay with that!
Because of this, I had to get myself together, get organized and start thinking about the best way(s) to ensure that I have everything that I need while I’m in the office while maintaining an office at home.
Enter…the Cuyana Large Structured Tote Bag. You know I love a large tote bag, so trying to find the right tote bag was a struggle for me. I refused to buy a luxury tote bag that was just going to sit on the dirty floor, but I did want it to be cute and fashionable of course and true to my style which is classy, simple and chic.
I don’t remember when I stumbled across the Cuyana brand…it was probably about three years ago when looking for chic travel cases. You all know how much I love a cute cosmetic bag!!! I really liked the simplicity of the bag. I didn’t want to carry my Neverfull to work every day and I knew I needed a bag large enough to carry my laptop and charger among other things…so I thought I’d give Cuyana a try! Initially, I bought the Small Structured Tote. Again…I thought that I had downsized enough to warrant a smaller bag, but let’s face it…your girl carries a lot of stuff! I watched a few YT videos where people said that the small tote was big enough for them and it could fit all of their stuff, but that didn’t work for me. I pulled the bag out of the box and returned it the next day. I just couldn’t see my stuff fitting in that bag. I ordered the Large Structured Tote and I actually really like it.
I opted for the cappuccino color because I like a good nude. The interior is blush and it I LOVE it! It has one interior flap that has a slip pocket and a zipper pocket.
I’m still on the hunt for a good insert, but for now I am using my Samorga insert for my Neverfull.
Let’s get into what I carry in the bag shall we!
- Laptop charger
- Kikki-K A5 Planner (I use this for taking notes. I guess I need to get some calendar inserts as well)
- In the pockets of the bag I have my keys which are in an LV S Key holder.
Let’s get on with the OCD organization and all of my organizational bags.
- YSL Card Case
- Case with gift cards
- Compact mirror
- Ponytail holders
- Hand sanitizer
- Lip Balm
- Cuticle Oil
- Small case for meds
- AirPods (both wireless and wired)
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you carry a bag to work that’s not your handbag, let me know if the comments below! What type of bag is it and what are your essentials? I’d love to know!
‘til next time!
