During the week, we strive to look put-together, professional, and poised. Our morning routine, however, is not so chic: Too often, we find ourselves transferring all our belongings from one bag to another, unable to locate our bus pass or our keys, while our second — okay, third — snooze alarm is going off on the other side of the room. (All of this, of course, before we've had the chance to drink our morning coffee.) The easiest way to streamline the 8:00 a.m. dance around our living room is with a timeless, spacious bag that goes with every piece in our work wardrobe, so we can simply grab and go.
A life-hacking piece like this is worth investing in. Luckily, we're catching the tail end of sale season here, so the sticker shock won't even be as severe as if you were buying that new go-to bag at full price.
