Monday Mingle: Chic Bags for Working Moms

This week I’m showing a glimpse of how and where I work. The “how” is creatively and passionately. The “where” is well, anywhere. I am always on the go covering trends and heading to events. That means I carry my little 13″ macbook air everywhere. Usually, I bring along a trusty tote since traditional laptop bags can hardly be considered cute.

But lately, I’ve been sporting the Havana bag from Knomo. I can stuff my “office” –that would be a phone and laptop–into my bag and hit the road. The blend of linen and leather is perfect for summer. Fortunately for me, I can wear shorts and a tank to work. I put together the rest of the outfit from LOFT. I’m also wearing a nifty pair of shorts from LOFT and a metallic tank (also LOFT). It’s been hot as Hades this summer, so I’ve been dressing minimally. The bag works for my casual style.

I’m also loving the fact that my hair is long enough to put into this sassy side braid. I can’t stand it on my neck on really hot days. And I won’t lie, I’m mostly in flip flops these days. The Prada gold sandals only came out for a meeting and this shoot.

With my on-the-go life, this tote is perfect. It’s loaded with pockets and compartments, plus offers EVA foam protection. Find more of these smart bags at www.knomobags.com

Win It! This week we’ve got a fun trio of Avon Bracelets to give away to one lucky fashionista. To be eligible, just link up a post. One winner will be selected at random.



Each week the Monday Mingle ladies gather to bring you style inspiration. We rotate hosting the linky between Jill at www.glamamom.com and Kristin at www.bonbonrosegirls.com we hope you’ll stop by and join the fun.

    • Thanks Jenn. Hope you have a great week.

  • This is such a nice structured yet summery bag, love it! I love those too, they look great on you.

  • The Shorts:)

  • How do you like your 13″ Air? Any performance issues?I have the 11″ and have been considering the 13– I think the 11″ screen is just too small for me.

    • I love it, but I don’t do a lot of graphics work–that would be tough on 13″

  • I firmly believe in the power of a chic laptop bag. It’s a must.

  • Nicole,
    you look perfect in this summery outfit! I love the bag too! It goes great with the outfit.

  • You are working that side braid — love it! Your “office” is so trendy!

  • I love that bag, especially with the green accents. I always try to get a new bag for work each year because I have to bring so much home with me. I like a bag for work to be beautiful and functional.

  • Very cute bag! I just got a new mac and I need a new bag to go with it. I’m in Chile until the end of the month and because its winter I am sadly missing out on sweet summer looks but dodging the terrible heat. Cute shorts – I have the same ones!
