We don't carry bulky textbooks around any more, but we sure do have a heavy haul. With laptops, smartphones, whoosies and whatsies weighing down our day bags, we need a good one that's sturdy enough to make the long haul, while being chic enough to pass as a purse.

The Go Anywhere, Do Anything, Perfect Summer Look

Just because it's summer, it doesn't mean you have to throw style in the garbage disposal if you want to be comfy. We're a little biased, of course, but believe that New York has to be one of the best places to pound the pavement in search of style inspiration. After a brief browse around town yesterday, we literally bumped into the perfect look walking down the street. It's like a formula for comfy chic that will work at the office, at the beach, at a fancy dinner, at a not fancy dinner, you get the idea. Comfy? Check! Stylish? Check! Easy? Check-ity-Check Check Check.

Bottoms: Keep shorts, capris, bermudas, skirts or pants crisp, tailored and dark in color like these dark navy cropped pants. $78.00 at anntaylor.com.

Tops: Soften up that tailored look with a simple white top. It could be a flowy or fitted peasant top, made of any lightweight fabric like organdy, linen, cotton or eyelet. Ruffled Racerback, $78 at anthropologie.com.

Flats: Statement flats in a bold hue really snap the look together. A bold pop of orange, yellow, green, red or pink really makes the look. Rosalita Sandals, $33 at modcloth.com.

Bag: A structured bag that works with the shoes is your key. They don't have to be matchy-matchy, but similar hues would be perfect. Zara XL Coloured Clutch, $99.90 at zara.com.

What's your go-to "go anywhere, do anything" summer look?
