My Favorite Bags

If I had to pick any favorite accessory or item of clothing it would always, always be handbags.  I have gone weak in the knees over drool-worthy handbags since I was in high school and scored my first nylon Kate Spade Sam tote (remember those?!)  I have accumulated quite a collection of bags over the years, in large part thanks to a fashion and retail career.  I cherish them and love them way too much, but since having kids, changing bags on a daily basis is no longer a reality for me.  Instead, I have found a handful of bags that I generally stick to in my regular rotation.  I carry the same few over and over again, because of their size, function and durability (way too practical to say, sheesh!)  

You have seen these bags pop up here many times...

These are my usual suspects, that take my from day to night, errands to dinner, kids to date night.  Some of them I have had for years, some are newer, but all of them get a lot of use these days and come in classic shapes, and colors to give them longevity and matching power.

1. Longchamp Le Pliage  \\  2. See by Chloe Harriet Tote \\  3. Clare V. Foldover Clutch
4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Nylon Natasha  \\  5. Jennifer Haley Fringe Shopper \\ 6. Boulevard Sunday Tote \\ 7. Gigi New York Uber Clutch \\ 8. Tory Burch Robinson Square Pebbled Tote

Have a fabulous day babes!

  3. Same here girl, bring on the handbags! The CV clutch is still on my wish list and I love your fringe one!

  4. The Tory Burch bag is my favorite! :)

  5. I'm such a bag girl too! I used to change them daily when I worked pre-kids. Now I'm like you, I stick with the same few and use my blue polka dot one the most becaus of its size and how functional it is.

  6. Great collection! I'm obsessed with Clare V. lately. I'm guilty of rarely switching bags until I buy a new one. I do, however, throw small things in a tiny clutch or cross body bag whenever I go out to dinner or a party.
    Have a great day!

  7. Love that Gigi New York clutch and Tory Burch bag!

  8. Ahhh the KS nylon tote, that was my first designer bag as well, and I'm pretty sure I still have it because I can't part with it :)

  9. "Totes" agree with you. See what I did there ;) LOVE me some bags!

  10. I love a good bag. Longchamp is my go to travel tote!

  11. I've wanted the foldover clutch for ever!! I always carry the same bag all day all the time... I'm so boring :)

  12. Found you through a link up, and I have to say I'm in love with my longchamp as well. She's my dependable diaper bag, work bag, lunch bag, and whatever else I need her for, even on date nights. I carry the amethyst color, quite a change from the bilberry I used to tote around.
