Just Madras: Tote Edition

I love, love, love getting packages in the mail. I was especially excited when I opened this package and saw...
 The familiar Just Madras logo and the pretty striped tissue!
I love Just Madras and have been a fan for a while now. I usually think of their items as summery and get sad that I can't wear my favorite pieces all year long. However, Just Madras has a lot of other items that can be used during fall/winter. 
That's where my Grace Beach Bag comes into play. I was wanting something different than my typical L.L. Bean boat and tote and I knew that past September it was time for me to retire my J. Crew madras tote and the Grace bag was the perfect choice. It is SO big. It is exactly what I was looking for. There are two pockets inside and then two pockets on the sides for waterbottles, etc. 
This tote is now my go-to tote. I use it for going to class and I even plan on using it as an overnight bag. It is all navy, with a green monogram and the piping is madras. It is just the perfect combination of color and pattern for fall and I have already gotten a lot of compliments on it because it is different than most totes.
The plaid inside adds a fun touch. Like I said, it fits SO much. This was during sorority recruitment and one day we had to wear cocktail dresses. However, it was freezing that day so I went from my car to the sorority house wearing sweats. This also holds my sunglasses, planner, books, rain jacket, umbrella, wallet, etc. Everything I could possibly need while on campus fits perfectly. So now I've learned that Just Madras has great products not only for summer-time use but for all year round!
 I am now thinking I need the matching toiletry bag for my trips over night. So coordinated; I love it! What are your favorite Just Madras pieces? Have a fabulous day!

What a cute bag! I have the same bag but it is seersucker with an anchor. I think I need a fall bag now!

Hi! I am looking for something to carry my 15" laptop, notebook and books (usually around trade size) to class. I was leaning on the Vera Bradley laptop backpack but I really love this tote. Do you think that I could fit my laptop and books in it?
