The Most Versatile Tote You Will Ever Need


Summer’s ending. The school term is soon to begin. Autumn months are just around the corner. With our lifestyles rapidly changing and adapting it can be hard to find the bag which is perfect for just about anything. I have a love affair for bags (and shoes… and clothes.. and well life) so when I got my personalised tote from MAHI Leather my heart leapt just a little – who am I kidding?! A LOT.

My most treasured item is the brown leather bag that my mum bought me from a little Italian shop for my 21st. It’s supposed to be a vanity bag, I use it as a handbag. ~ Felicity Jones

I love this quote, it shows that an item might be brought for one purpose doesn’t mean it is restricted to that. I have always wanted a leather bag. One that would last and have multiple uses. But picking the style of bag I had in mind was not as easy as you would expect. In the end I went with a tote. well, MAHI Leather tote has buckets of room – it’s like a Mary Poppins bag (no jokes). I’ve used it for days out, work trips, an overnight and even a regular every day. There are of course cons to having such a large bag – especially for an every day – you can easily fill it with junk stuff. 

I’m imagining that these bag is going to be a staple in my wardrobe for many years to come and I love the personalised touch with my initials ‘MA’ which I got stitched on. Leather is in an investment. You can get cheaper alternatives for sure, but if (like me) you wanted a specific style/look then you have do your research.
