This Bouquet Oxford Medium Tote from MZ Wallace is a dream!  Love the pretty floral print!  I have a number of MZ Wallace bags and I have to say they are some of my very favorite bags to carry.  These totes make the best carryon bags when traveling.  I use them all of the time and how adorable is this floral print?
