The mercury can be deceiving. Yet, it's spring in Chicago and that means out with the old and in with the new. Think usability, durability and beauty and you'll begin to notice the earthy textures and styles this spring. There's a trend toward totes this season with good reason. The perfect tote can take you from workday to weekend getaway. Remember, carrying less is best…and choosing the right hand/messenger/bucket/tote bag should help you steer clear of that weighted-down look—a big no-no for spring.
