Being in NYC is such a huge reminder of the need for a great everyday bag. I have plenty of bags that work well for NYC life and have found that a great light-weight tote is a must-have if you are on the move often. It’s easy to pack your daily essentials and if you’re like me, you carry a bit more than needed. Sometimes when I have a long day, my tote bag has a smaller bag inside to take to a meeting later and even a change of shoes.
While the Louis Vuitton Neverfull is probably one of the most sought after options when it comes to an everyday tote, many brands have similar options. I stumbled upon the Tory Burch Perry Tote and it grabbed my attention.
I immediately recognized the bag as Tory Burch, but the logo is small and the bag is straightforward. The grained leather is sturdy and will hold up well and the top handles are both thin and flat with a 9″ drop (which will fit nicely on your shoulder). I love the pink interior which works well with the french gray hued exterior. There is a snap closure that helps secure the open top, which is a perk for a tote, and the interior features two slip pockets. Dimensions are 11″H x 14.8″W x 6″D.
