Large zipped beach/tote bag

Am going away in a few weeks.
Am on the hunt for a good roomy bag with a zip (for security) that I can take on a plane with my laptop & work stuff in, but still use as a beach bag when I get there, as will have a couple of days to chill.
Needs to have a shoulder strap and preferably carry handles too.
Something Chic would be good, maybe silver or neutral (not gold)
Budget up to £100.
If anyone has seen anything would be grateful for suggestions.
I have to go to work now, so will respond this afternoon

How about a large le pliage?

Thanks auntpol
Did think about that. I do have 2 already, could do with an upgrade though.

I second the Le Pliage. Very versatile bag.

Check out this from Ted Baker, I bought it last year for summer hols- it was perfect for the beach n by the pool. I use it for swimming now - will take three towels plus other swimming bits!

I'll use it for spa weekends etc too.

Wouldn't you be better to have a lightweight beach bag and leave the sturdy, laptop / cabin bag somewhere sand-free? Get a decent laptop bag, and a nylon shopping tote for the beach. Otherwise you will ALWAYS have sand, which is not ideal in expensive electronic devices. Trust me on this, I live by a beach.

Lovemyboo that Ted Baker bag is perfect!

Minnie you are probably right. Might be better with something separate for beach.
However the red Baker bag does look good.
