While I’ve always been someone who likes a large tote, it has never been more necessary since having George. Babies need a lot of stuff which means that outings call for a big bag, one that can hold it all – diapers and toys for George, my notebook, a wallet, maybe a laptop. All. Of. It.

The good news is that there are plenty of great options out there that are both super chic and super functional – from investment-worthy bags like this one from Khaite (this MG one is the same idea but slightly less expensive), Gucci’s newest striped tote, this tall tote that I’m obsessed with from Lutz Morris, and – my personal favorite – this canvas and leather tote from Valextra to under-$500 favorites like this striped carryall from Clare V. and Rag & Bone’s olive-green option.

Below, a shopping list with all of my favorites for fall.
