These Jenna Lyons Bags Are Everything You Ever Wanted in a Tote
It’s no secret that we’re kind of (okay, totally) obsessed with Jenna Lyons. Sure, the creative director of J.Crew has a killer sense of style, but she’s also full of easily adoptable life and career advice. So, it’s not uncommon that when struggling to make a decision, whether it’s what to wear to a wedding or how to snag that promotion we’ve been after, we have repeatedly thought to ourselves, “What would Jenna Lyons do?”
Apparently we aren’t the only folks who have been asking themselves this question. Blogger, Robin Anderson recently released a limited edition tote bag that begs that exact mantra alongside an illustration of the all-knowing Lyons. Dude. Can we have 20?
The fact that this bag exists at all is amazing enough, but what’s even better is the Jenna Lyons bag is not a solo product, but rather the first in a #BossLadies bag series Anderson is creating. Each limited edition tote will feature a different female icon. As far as who else will be featured, no definite names have been leaked yet but Elements of Style tossed around a few you might have heard of, like Martha Stewart and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as contenders for future #BossLadies bags.
Each tote is printed locally, by hand, on recycled cotton bags that comply with fair wage and fair labor practices. They’ll set you back $35, which – if you ask us – is a small price to pay for spending an eternity with Jenna.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
