Journey of A Green Cotton Tote

We’re excited to introduce our latest Tastemaker, Maya McDonald.  Maya is the voice behind the fashion and lifestyle blog Charmingly Styled, a collection of personal and street style inspirations, the latest beauty trends, and her appreciation for life’s little charms.

I’m always down for an adventure, and living in a big city means that every weekend is an opportunity to explore somewhere new. Whether it’s popping into a store around the street I’ve never explored, discovering a new lakeshore path, or continuing my search for the best cup of coffee – Chicago becomes my playground during the weekend.

The only problem with my penchant for adventure? My incessant need to document each moment! I’m always lugging my camera around, so I need a bag that holds everything while I take on the town. When I laid eyes on this Journey of Green handcrafted cotton tote, I knew it was meant to be. Not only does the gorgeous green color go with everything (always a bonus), but it’s versatile as both a tote or shoulder bag.

Best of all, I adore the fact that this green tote bag is made with love by Karina and Maybee from the Andes. Knowing a bit about the artists who’ve made one of your favorite pieces by hand really makes an item special. Karina and Maybee’s pieces are truly one-of-a-kind, and I loved reading their full profile to learn more about their inspiring story of starting their own business in Lima, Peru.

I mixed my cotton tote with Latin inspired and classic pieces (like my favorite skinny jeans!) to pull together a cool laid-back weekend look. With my new favorite tote in hand, I’m ready to take on the city in comfort and style, which is just what the weekend ordered!
