Totes are definitely my Go-To travel bag.  They can add a chic style element and work as a practical and functional piece of a travel wardrobe.  Some totes even work as Carry-On Bags.  I love a bag that I can easily grab things out of and throw things into.  I'm usually lugging around a couple of camera's, phones, travel documents and a bottle of water so ease of use is a must for me.   That's why 90% of the time I travel with a tote!  Here are a few I love!
