I love a good handbag.
I really think it can complete a look while providing all the functionality we need as women. My goal one day is to find a handbag that is everything you could want it to be, the perfect size, a trendy style and goes with any outfit! I haven’t found the perfect handbag yet but I have found some great choices for this summer. All of my picks are super affordable and most can be found online!
5. The Satchel
I’m pretty in love with a bold bag when wearing print. I think it adds a nice pop of color and its really fun be bold and mix up your outfit a bit. I picked up my bag from Charming Charlie last summer but let’s face it, this look is pretty classic. You can still get great colorful satchels from Charming Charlie by visiting a store near you! or this one from Target!
4. Something (StrAW)ESOME
I’m also really digging this straw trend. I’ve seen quite a few of these bags circling in different shops along with a ton of bamboo bags like the one here. I personally haven’t found the perfect one for me but this one at Target was super cute. I’ve also linked a few great ones here and here. A bag like this would be perfect for any outdoor occasion like going to the beach or a picnic in the park.
3. The Backpack
I’ve been eyeing this trend for awhile. It’s such a unique way to add some variety to your look while still being perfectly functional. As you know I’m a casual look kind of gal so this backpack is right up my ally. I picked this one up from Target. It comes in three great colors and I loved this cognac color stole my heart. I am styling it with this darling romper from Lulu’s for a look that I could wear everyday.
2. A Clutch
Coming in clutch as my number two pick are statement clutches for this summer. For any night out or special occasion I love styling with lutches. It can really add a hint of classiness to any outfit. I have gotten quite a few great clutches included in my StitchFix boxes every month! I can tell my stylist of an event I have coming up and they will send me the perfect clutch. I’ve linked a few great clutches here, and here, or get $15 off your first fix here!
1. “The Canteen Bag”
This was my top pick for sure. I am so in love with this “canteen bag” from Target! It’s so simple so it goes great with so many casual outfits. This bag would be great for just everyday use to add a feature element to your outfit. This bag would also be great at festival event or BBQ. I’ve linked a couple different style canteen bags like this, this one and this one. I paired this bag with jean shorts and a one piece swim suit from Old Navy. This would be the perfect look for chillin’ poolside don’t you think?
I hope you enjoyed my picks for this summer. My mom always said you could never have too many handbags. They are such a simple way to express your style and add another element to your outfit. Let me know what you think of my choices in the comments. As always feel free to contact me by email!
