I have long been a fan of Vera Bradley's bright colors and patterns but will admit, this Mother's Day was the first time I was treated to one and for a good cause too. This Mother's Day, Vera Bradley has partnered with Macy's and come out with a special limited edition Vera Bradley for Win Reversible Tote. This Reversible tote delivers in so many ways but the first and foremost headliner is that a designated portion of the proceeds from this gorgeous tote goes towards Win (Women in Need), a NYC based charity that provides safe housing, holistic services and innovative programs to help the homeless women and children of New York City break the cruel and harsh cycle of homelessness. Homelessness impacts so many and affects the development and growth of the children that are affected. You don't have to be a New Yorker to help.

Vera Bradley and Macy's has partnered to create this limited edition Vera Bradley for Win Mother's Day Reversible Tote ($88), available in three color patterns including Cobalt Tile (in my pictures), Paisley in Paradise and Nomadic Floral.

I personally adore the versatility of this reversible tote and the fantastic size is a fantastic bonus. My co-workers are always making fun of me that my bag is too full and I need a bigger bag. This may just be it! The simple yet delightful design features a magnetic closure and a 12" strap comfortably fits on the shoulder.

-Reverses between two coordinating prints
-12" strap drop
-One side has a zip pocket and the other side features a slip pocket
-11 ½" w x 14 ½" h x 7" d
Vera Bradley and Macy's Limited Edition Tote for Mother's Day
I enjoyed the zip pocket because not only is it lined, but it is also a pocket that goes all the way to the base of the bag. The slip pocket is a bit smaller but convenient. This tote is great for every day usage and if you get bored of the pattern, just flip it to the other side! The quilted design and trim for some odd reason makes it the go-to bag of the day and feels great for the upcoming summer. I can even fit BabyPom into the bag with all my other junk, which only shows how much the bag can really hold. Kind of parallel to the love and energy mothers all seem to have when they come to their children, right? Pay it forward this Mother's Day and give the gift that not only is gorgeous but will help mothers and families in need.

Find the mothers in your life a limited edition Vera Bradley tote available on Macys.com in 40 Macy's New York Metro locations, on VeraBradley.com, and select Vera Bradley stores. Remember, a designated portion of the proceeds benefit Win.
