My Everyday Bag

Before the holidays I began the search for a structured handbag that wasn’t too expensive, would keep its shape and would hold everything from file folders to my laptop; without looking like a piece of luggage. I stumbled upon this bag on Amazon and with the rave reviews, the price point, and the sleek, chic design (very similar to this high-end designer bag), I ordered it. A few months in and I can honestly say it is one of my favorite purses I have purchased. The quality surpasses some of my more expensive bags and the size is just large enough to tote my laptop but also small enough to head to happy hour after work without looking like I just stepped off the plane. Best part is comes 26 – YES – 26 colors!

I selected a neutral canvas with coordinating leather. Gave it one spray of scotch guard to protect the canvas and haven’t looked back! How fun is this orange for summer?!

Packing List

Packing my suitcase for a tropical trip this week. Can’t wait to wear these new pieces.

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last post. The longest I’ve gone since starting this little blog over FIVE years ago {skipped right over my blog anniversary too}! I’m back to bring you a few fun finds! I came across these fabulous straw bags on Etsy and ordered this one immediately! You should too – all under $45!!  2016-07-13_18-36-51

Totes

During the work week I have to carry a large bag. I love to have everything I need and then some. My calendar, to-do list, notebook, small make-up bag, chargers…. you get the idea. I also never know when I may need to run out with laptop in tow – it’s so much easier to throw in an oversized handbag. Zara has been a go-to for affordable, yet stylish handbags and right now the tote selection is amazing! Time to get a new bag for the new year!

Round-Up

This time of year I find it very hard to shop for clothes {hence the lack of clothing post}, WAY too hot to even look at fall and summer sales are usually pretty picked over by now. But accessories, that’s where you’ll find me! There are several things I love about Zara handbags; the price point is affordable, the styles and silhouettes are on trend with top designers and their quality never disappoints. One of my all-time favorite handbags is from Zara, and it never fails, every time I use it I get so many compliments. Here’s a round-up of a few great styles to wear now and carry into fall.

the bag lady

True life, I’m a bag hoarder. You name it, I love it; totes, luggage, purses… As part of my spring cleaning I decided to make the conscious effort to purchase less bags, unfortunately that all went out the window when I came across these. Pretty sure this one, will be coming home with me soon. Don’t forget Mother’s Day and upcoming graduations, these would make great gifts!!

pass the bucket

This time of year shopping is tricky, the sale racks are picked over and spring hasn’t quite sprung. Lately I’ve struck out at all my go to shops, and find myself browsing handbags and I’ve got my eye on the bucket bag. How cute are these styles? I think I see a purchase in my future.

like list

With the arrival of each new season I create a “like list” in my phone to jot down items I love or need to replace. Right now a pair of Nike’s, an oversized neutral scarf and a cross-body purse are on the list. I tend to gravitate to larger bags, and could use to add a smaller bag to my collection.

neutral

July 4th sales are in full swing and there are a few items I have been considering. My closet is missing a neutral tote and it’s definitely a piece you can’t go wrong with. Here are a few sale totes I am highly considering.
