You know when you see a bag, a tote, a carry-all that you just NEED. We know you know. And that’s why we’re doing our darnedest to find such amazing tote bags over in the B+C Shop. Case in point is this brand new Milkhaus Polka Dot Zip Tote ($116)! The neutral print makes it uber-versatile while still staying chic — it’s one bag for every occasion.

Going on a weekend trip? Out on the town? To the gym, work or market? This tote will do the job. It’s an everyday essential that fits just about every gal’s sense of style.

THE WEEKENDER

Use this tote as your only bag for a quick weekend away. The zip means you can cram all your essentials right in there, without overpacking. To complete the look, pack up Peppermint Lip Balm ($6), Wooden Cherry Sunglasses ($165) and keep yourself hydrated by filling up one of these Glass Bottles ($45 for 3).

NIGHT OUT

For a night out, you’re going to need to keep a pair of stylish flats for when you really want to hit the dance floor. Keep yourself warm between bars by layering on this gorgeous Tarantula Nebula Scarf ($95), rock the geometric trend with this Honeycomb Necklace ($25) and keep all your touch-ups ready to go in this Canvas Accessory Bag ($36). Oh, and if you need a little pick-me-up between places, go ahead and pack up this Awesome Hip Flask ($29).

HIT THE GYM

After a night or two out, you’ve probably added “hit the gym” to your weekday routine. Forget using your gym bag from high school. Carry the things you need in style with this chic zip tote. In addition to a neon sports bra and color-blocked sneaks, we’ve got Gray Wrap Headphones ($18), a Lilac Pink BKR Bottle ($30) and a bright Bag Bolo ($36) to keep our keys at the ready.

BEACH BUM

The beach is all about being prepared and ready for anything. For us, that means a super colorful Tallow Luxe Beach Towel ($59), The Picnic Kit ($28) with everything you need to be gourmet on the go and, of course, this AWESOME Giant Gem Speaker by Ban.do ($40). I mean, it’s a bright purple gem that plays music — what’s not to love?

FOR EVERY DAY

As you can see, you can definitely use this tote every day — whatever your every day means. For us, that means keeping n Awesome Notepad ($16) and Polka Dot Notebook ($24) at the ready. We’ve also got our iPad outfitted in a DODOcase ($85) to keep our tech on trend.
