I'm now really confused after looking at literally hundreds of flippin' bags since I got back home. I like the hobo or tote shape, but I prefer a couple of compartments instead of everything (all my crap) mixing together in one big compartment.
My top 'wants' are:
Big - I'm really short so I'm not talking suitcase size, but I have a large diary, ipad, phone, bottle of water etc. My life is basically in my bag.
Not too formal - I'd like something smartish for work but nothing too structured as I'm more likely to be out with the kids.
Not black, brown or navy - Lighter colours for spring. I don't know if it makes a difference but I currently live in my Allsaints black leather jacket and most of my clothes are black or grey.
