A Day in the life of my Michael Kors Jet Set Laptop Tote

This is a bag that has proved its worth over and over again. It has everything that makes a good work bag. This is not the Michael Kors tote that is just one central space. This has a central padded laptop pocket with a padded iPad pocket on the outside thereof. The colour is Fuchsia and there is a Raspberry that looks almost exactly like it.

  • it is light
  • it is easy to carry
  • easy to find things quickly
  • internal pockets for telephone, iPad, laptop and Kindle
  • keyholder
  • two compartments
  • nice straps
  • nice colour
  • durable leather

After that stopped for lunch and Wifi at this little coffee shop in the middle of the busiest part of town. It is squirreled away so no one knows it is there and I have it to myself 99.9% of the time. It has free Wifi so I sit and eat my lunch and have a coffee while I work

  1. Hi Janet, your bags are just stunning 🙂 I wonder, could you please tell me how big is your laptop? Your bag is not the special one made for Apple, right? According to my internet search, the Apple MK totes seem to be a bit bigger. So trying to figure out how big laptop can fit a MK tote sold at MK stores. TIA Helena

    1. My Macbook is a 15 inch one – full size (not Air) Size and Weight
      Height: 0.71 inch (1.8 cm)
      Width: 14.13 inches (35.89 cm)
      Depth: 9.73 inches (24.71 cm)
      Weight: 4.46 pounds (2.02 kg)2

  2. I love your Michael Kors tote but have hesitated buying one as they dont close at the top. I am always worried about losing something or someone stealing something out of my bag with open bags. Does this bother you or how do you get around it? Also I find the straps always look very thin when I look at Michael Kors totes: don’t these hurt when you are lugging around a laptop and other stuff?

    1. No the straps don’t hurt at all and my bag gets really heavy. The fact that some bags do not close at the top has not been that much of an issue for me as I carry them over my shoulder and my arm against the side keeps the top closed enough that no one would be able to try anything without me knowing.

      I never put my bags where I can’t see them (old habit from living in a dangerous place) so (touch wood!) no disasters thus far!

    1. The Fuchsia was last year’s colour so I got it 50% off on sale but the new colour, Raspberry is almost exactly the same and should be easier to find. Good luck!
