Just in time for your next getaway, this Lesportsac tote is on sale for $95, more than 50 percent off the original price. Not every trip requires a three-piece luggage set, and when you’re just going away for the weekend or staying the night at a friend’s, a sizable tote bag is all you need. This one has a simple design — a roomy main compartment, three outer pockets, and a zippered bottom compartment for shoes — and a forgiving nylon exterior, perfect for both the meticulous packer using cubes and the one just stuffing it to the brim. We’ve written about Lesportsac weekenders before, and reviewers speak to their durability and size. Kathleen Hyppolite, the owner and creative director of Kat Flower, said, “I’m an exuberant packer, so I need a bag that can handle the bulk while maintaining a level of chic simplicity,” of a bag six inches smaller than the one on sale, so you know this one is up to the task. It has the same chic simplicity she mentioned as well. The black is sleek and the nylon makes it easy to clean, but if you’re less concerned with the look and want to save even more, the city-days print is even cheaper and just $53.
