We adore a good book — we’ve been known to choose our latest page-turner over a good night’s sleep! — but heading back to school (or just returning to work after a long weekend!) is definitely bittersweet. Reuniting with friends and learning new skills are wonderful, but early mornings and not-so-thrilling assignments are also part of returning to a non-vacation way of life. Our favorite way to get ahead of that inevitable back-to-the-grind gloominess? To face that homework head-on — with a brand-new book bag to carry everything! Click through to see a few of the chic totes we’ve got our eye on for fall — your only assignment is to choose your favorite!
