Yesterday I went to get my hair cut & colored (which is why I’m not wearing my glasses…). It’s short, but for some reason, I convinced myself to go super-short this time and try to make it all summer without getting cut or color done. I need to save a bit of money on that, honestly, and I MIGHT try and grow it out a little for fall/winter. We’ll see how far I can go before I have to get it cut again. I like it this length, but my hair grows so fast.
I took my laptop and various other things with me to work a bit while I was there, and go to a cafe afterwards and work a bit more. And since Jessica has been thinking about a work tote (she posted about it on her blog), but was concerned about the Everlane one being too slouchy, I wanted to show it full, and then what’s inside. It holds EVERYTHING, and I love that it’s structured without being too structured. It’s honestly so perfect for hauling around a laptop, etc. while still looking somewhat professional, and creative at the same time.

It was heavy, I’m not going to lie, but it holds up nicely and the bottom stays put; I HATE when bag bottoms don’t stay flat. I have the straps adjusted as long as they can be, and it fits well over my shoulder, which is how I carry it most of the time. And, so far, the bag has stayed relatively clean, except when I wore it with my black fleece James Perse bomber jacket – the black rubbed off a bit on one side. I haven’t tried to clean it yet, but I’m not overly concerned about it.
I will confess I already want a black version of the Everlane market tote for fall/winter because I love it so much. I certainly don’t need it, but I can already tell that this is a workhorse bag, and I’d love to have one around for many years to come. We’ll see…Of course, I’m trying to get away from buying multiples and stockpiling things. But I’ve also said that it’s justified sometimes, especially if the item has a proven track record.
Who else has an Everlane Petra Market tote? What are your thoughts on it? How has it held up for you?
