We know there are plenty of people out there who like their accessories nice and neutral so that they'll go with anything they want to wear.

We're so not those people.

A bright color and cheerful pattern is our pick, and the Ella Tote from Garnet Hill in the Happy Hounds print is exactly what the design doctor ordered. The functional carryall is large enough to hold pretty much whatever you might need for the day (and maybe even a night), and offers one outer zip pocket and several inner pockets, along with a full zip closure at the top. And, as you can see in the picture, there's a clip-in pouch pocket for the things you need to grab separately. You know, like lipstick, credit cards … dog treats. Hey, we get it.

Oh, and in case you're not in the market for a new bag, there are also some fun pajamas in this same playful pattern!

Ella Tote in Happy Hounds (also available in a variety of other patterns), $88, at Garnet Hill.
