If you’re looking for an affordable but durable leather tote, Madewell’s Transport line continues to win rave reviews. I was intrigued to see that they’ve come out with a whole line of lighter, springier colors — a nice departure from the usual black and brown. I like this light petal pink, although I wish it had feet on it. The bag is $168 at Nordstrom. ‘Transport’ Leather Tote
