15 Chic Tote Bags Your Work Wardrobe Isn't Complete Without 

If you’re reading this, then at some point in the distant (or not-so-distant past), the end of August signified a time for back-to-school shopping for you. Us too. And, as stressful as it was at the time (because who doesn’t want to come back with a bang), we have to admit we kind of miss it.
