Does anyone have any cute work bag recommendations? I am tired of lugging around a backpack with the firm logo on it, but I also struggle finding a good quality bag that fits work necessities (laptop, mouse, travel monitor from time to time, etc.) that I’m willing to pull the trigger on.

I love my MZ Wallace metro deluxe backpack. It has a luggage sleeve that doubles as a back pocket when zipped, fits everything I need, and is super light. I also have a couple of Dagne Dover Dakota backpacks and I like those as well, but they’re definitely heavier to begin with and more casual looking in my opinion.

Any suggestions for bags on a budget $100-200?

like

A lot of the brands suggested here have something in the 100-200 range. I'd say pick some brands, browse their websites, watch for sales. Or also if you don't care if it's leather i know people whose bags came from Amazon and are "vegan leather" (rebranded pleather lol) that hold everything they need and look decent for under 100

I'd recommend Minkeeblue if you bring a lunch and/or swap shoes for work as well. Very thoughtful and well laid out bags. Also great for travel as it has the luggage handle sleeve.
