Hey. How are you doing? What a week, am I right? Katie Holmes clearly gets it. The actress mirrored all of our brains after an Election Day turned Election Week (and counting) when she was spotted out in Manhattan, her hair in a messy bun, her shoulders and hands full, while carrying three different bags and many loose pieces of paper. Her outfit just very much encapsulated the chaotic energy we all feel right now.

Naturally, Katie Holmes carrying three bags while wearing her go-to Evolvetogether mask, a sleek Magda Butrym leather trench coat, and a cute pair of white sneakers looks very different than any of us carrying three bags while wearing our favorite pair of sweatpants for the third day in a row. Not just because she's Katie Holmes and her outfit itself is a little bit more put-together but because one of her bags also happens to be Strathberry's newest Lana bucket bag. Personally, I haven't worn anything remotely chic in weeks, but Holmes's bag is one of the chicest things I've seen in a while. It makes me want to at least try to disguise my internal panic and stress with a statement accessory.

While the brand isn't necessarily a household name, it probably looks familiar thanks to Meghan Markle who put the Scottish bag brand on the map in 2018 when she wore its classic leather tote. After many sell outs, the brand is now happily well-stocked at Nordstrom. Holmes's Lana bag comes in the bicolor option she's been spotted in as well as in all-black. There's also a similar denim version that's 50 percent off. And for anyone who is more interested in a classic shape, Nordstrom also has the standard midi Strathberry leather tote, a box leather shoulder bag, and some very charming mini options.

But no matter how very good all of those are, the Lana bag Holmes has been wearing for the past couple of days is definitely on track to become the latest "it" bag with her blessing. And it's just as big as the one Markle made famous. Still, the existential dread of 2020 weighs heavy, especially right now, which would explain Holmes's need for two other tote bags. Hopefully in 2021 that changes, and we all just feel the need to carry one Strathberry Lana bag while not panicking about the state of the world. A girl can dream right?
