There's absolutely nothing wrong with a basic tote bag, except that it can be so... basic. But as a non-corporate girlie who mostly works from home, I've never really seen the need to invest in a proper "work bag," either. After I was gifted this Alo gym bag at a recent event, though, I quickly adopted it as my go-to Schlepping Stuff Around Bag™.
The slouchy, slightly puffy crescent-shaped bag is perfect for toting around my laptop, but it's also roomy enough that I was able to use it during a recent overnight stay at a hotel. In addition to my computer, I was able to stuff it full of my pajamas, toiletries (of which there are many — I'm a beauty editor), a hardcover book and a next-day outfit. (I did forget to pack a second pair of shoes, which no doubt helped squeeze everything in, but that's not the point.)
It features an adjustable strap and interior zippered pocket for keeping track of smaller items. The inner lining is also made from nylon, making it waterproof. Because the bag is soft, it's also easily packable. I already can't wait to bring it with me on my next trip.
