Thirty-One Gifts Cindy Tote for the Fall Season #backtoschool #traveltote #personalizedgift

     The new school year is here again, which means it's time to reclaim my 'bag lady' status! Whether you're a college student, teacher, or other professional, I think we can all agree that a quality tote is essential. There are plenty of cute bags out there, but I have a hard time finding something that will last. I've searched high and low for a stylish tote that offers enough pocket storage and strap durability to last an entire season. Thankfully, Thirty-One Gifts didn't let me down. Check out my new Cindy Tote and matching Mini Zipper Pouch! I have a feeling you're going to want one, too. 

Why I Love It
     My Cindy Tote in the Dotty Hexagonal pattern comes with me everywhere. I can stay organized with all of the pockets it offers and the interior is extra roomy. To give you an idea of the size, I carried two textbooks, notebooks, a laptop, snacks and my Mini Zipper Pouch inside it yesterday, with room to spare. The two exterior side pockets are perfect for my water bottle and tea traveller. The side pockets are great for easy access to your keys or baby bottle storage, too.

     As far as durability goes, I expect this bag to last a long time. I'm really impressed with the quality of the straps. How many times have you found a bag you love, but the straps are thin and flimsy, wearing out in no time? The Cindy Tote also has feet on the bottom to protect it from wear and tear.

Key features:

  • Polyester lining
  • Two exterior side pockets
  • Interior zip pocket and three interior flat pockets
  • Feet to protect bottom of bag
  • Monogramming and personalization options available
  • Approx. 14"H x 15"L x 5"D
  • 11" handle drop

Be sure to check out the different patterns that Thirty-One offers! The plaid pattern is especially perfect for the Fall season. 

     My Dotty Hexagonal Mini Zipper Pouch is the perfect size for my makeup and other small items. I tend to toss things in my purse and end up digging around for them later, so a pouch saves a lot of time. I also toss my cash and credit cards inside this pouch and use it as a wristlet when I run to the store or spend the day at the parks. When picking out a design, you can match the pattern to your tote or create a mix-and-match style. Thirty-One offers so many fun patterns, you may want more than one! Browse the patterns here.

Key features:
  • Polyester lining
  • Zipper closure
  • D-ring for Wristlet Strap attachment
  • Monogramming and personalization options available
  • Approx. 5.5"H x 8"L x 1.5"D

Great Gift Idea
     I love this tote for it's style and quality, and the personalization options really take it up a notch. I always recommend Thirty-One Gifts because they make unique, thoughtful presents for kids headed to college, new moms with loads to lug around or a birthday gift for a close friend. (Personally, I would have loved a bag this nice when I was in college!) Plus, it's an incredible bonus to know that every purchase helps empower girls, women and families.
