The need for a really great work tote is one of the ties that binds women together. We seem to have a universal need to carry our entire lives around with us daily. Once you start factoring in workday necessities like notebooks, a laptop, and lunch provisions, a mere handbag will not do.

I was reminded of this universal need while having dinner with a good friend recently. At the top of her current to-buy list: a perfect work tote. “Perfect” is in the eye of the beholder, but I put a secure top closure, lots of organizational features, and a look that will play well with most workplace wardrobe options at the top of my must-have list. Here are seven work tote options that check all the boxes, and have a little something special about them.

Let’s get things started with my personal top pick. Not only is this classic Aquatalia box tote gorgeous and practical, it’s literally marked half price right now. The standout features are the supple pebble leather and zip closures for the top and both the interior and exterior pockets. It’s also available in brown.

I love the feeling of finding the perfect wardrobe addition at a reasonably priced mall store. It’s the thrill of the good deal mixed with the rush of finding the needle in the haystack – that one piece that vibes upscale, in the sea of boring basics.

Here are seven mall store finds that are on my radar right now. They’re the best of what’s new right now, and definitely worth snapping up in a hurry!

1. Drake’s for J.Crew Popover Shirt, $120.00
This piece is from J.Crew’s new collaboration with Drake’s, a London shop that’s been creating beautifully patterned scarves and ties for forty years. This pattern is a gorgeous blend of equestrian and dark floral that calls to mind Gucci. But, you know, without that Gucci price tag. The tiny pleats along the top add to the designer feel.

Of the completely made up pop culture holidays – Friendsgiving and Festivus, I’m looking at you – Galentine’s Day is my favorite. What could be more fun than a day devoted to celebrating amazing female friendships? And waffles.

Still confused about Galentine’s Day? No worries. Like the other aforementioned pop culture holidays, Galentine’s Day started as the focus of a sitcom episode. Leslie Knope, Amy Poehler’s character on Parks and Recreation, explained the holiday on the show:
"Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."
There’s a whole explainer over on Bustle, if you want more back-story. Otherwise, let’s move on to the fun part. Now that we’re clear that this is all about celebrating your lady friends, it’s time to talk gift ideas. Here are ten super fun presents that are perfect for gifting your besties on Galentine’s Day:
