I’ve always gravitated to carrying lighter bags whenever possible. In the Summer’s, I make it a point to seek out the simple and light totes because I am already dealing with the heat from the sun (which I love) so I definitely don’t want to carry anything heavier than need be to break a sweat.
If you’re looking for an understated tote, this Saint Laurent Shopping Leather Tote might just fit the bill. This is super simple, inside and out, with only the name stamped on the front and in the small pouch that is detachable in the interior. The interior is extremely spacious so you won’t have any issues fitting the largest water bottle to remain hydrated.
The straps don’t dig into your shoulders. The leather is extremely soft so the bag will not sit upright by itself. You do need a bag organizer if you prefer things compartmentalized but this holds true for most totes.
This Burberry Medium Reversible tote isn’t nearly as subtle, however, given that it’s reversible, you definitely get to use it year round which is a win in my book. On one side is the iconic check pattern and the other is smooth black leather. This is sleek, versatile and very functional.
Finally, my most carefree tote during the Summer is this Tory Burch Gemini Link Canvas Tote. This tote is water resistant and I reach for it whenever I know it’s going to be a busy day. This is a really no fuss bag because if you spill anything on it, just wipe to clean. The spacious interior holds a lot and at the price point, I really don’t have to break a sweat during any adventure.
