Etsy Shopping // Laptop Bags

posted by Amanda // Collections, Fashion, Travel

Sep 12, 2013

For the past week I’ve been working on-site at one of my client’s offices. We’re working on a new project with a tight deadline, so it’s easier if we’re all in the same place. I like the change from my home office, but I noticed I really don’t have a good laptop bag solution.

Currently my laptop bag doesn’t carry much other than a laptop, and all those work supplies I listed earlier this week. I also have to bring my power supply and some paper work. The bag is super heavy and I still have my purse and lunch bag! Not to mention a water bottle and sweater.

So I’ve been shopping for a new solution. What I really need is a small zippered pouch I can use as my purse that will tuck neatly inside my laptop bag and remove when I go to lunch. Ideally I could also fit a water bottle and sweater on top of all my work essentials. And of course this bag must be stylish, not too big and not super obvious that I have an expensive computer in there.

Thankfully I’ve already found several options on Etsy! Here are my top 5 picks so far… What do you think?

No. 1   //   No. 2   //   No. 3   //   No. 4    //   No. 5

I’m leaning toward the chic multipurpose (No. 4) or the classic leather crossbody (No. 5). Of course, I’ll probably be working from home after this week and won’t need to tote around so much.

Do you have a laptop bag or big tote that you love?

    These are all really great affordable bags! And some new great etsy shops to check out. I recently just bought this bag in the yellow floral: http://www.amazon.com/FOSSIL-Shay-Shopper-Color-Multi/dp/B00C40TJ7O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1379022413&sr=8-1&keywords=fossil+shay

    I can carry all my usual purse things + my lunch, library book, umbrella, papers, sweater, toys for the kid, etc. I also get tons of compliments! I’m not sure how sturdy it would be for a laptop, if I put mine in there I would probably use an additional laptop sleeve-type case.

      Oooo I really like these Fossil ones you linked too. Nice to know they cary so much. It’s always hard to tell how big they are from the photos. Thanks for the recommendation!
