Stylish MNetters I need your help!

I am about to go back to work after 9 months on maternity leave. During those nine months, I have just been using my changing bag, and have been dressing almost exclusively (and pretty frumpily!) in leggings, breastfeeding vests and long cardigans. I now need to reconnect with the work-suitable side of my wardrobe.

DH has offered to buy me a nice work bag for my birthday but I am struggling to find anything that I like! My dream bag would be:

- Leather
- Smart enough for the office (work in a creative-ish field but still want to look smart)
- Big enough for a 13 inch MacBook (my work laptop - I go to lots of meetings offsite during the day)
- Not black (I like yellow, tan and pink - hate dark colours like burgundy / wine / navy etc)

Oh, and ideally not more than £150 or so - we are about to start paying for (very expensive) childcare so DH is not swimming in cash!

Any suggestions?

Fossil! How about a Rachel Tote in pink:

Or an Emma in tan?

Ooooo I like the Emma - hadn't looked at Fossil.

Rachel is probably no good for me as I need something that closes across the top (very security conscious! and I take a lot of public transport).

Great suggestions! Keep 'em coming smile
