Usually I’m the type of person who uses one bag, all the time, with just about any outfit. Lately, that has been my work bag that I just throw stuff in from meetings along with a variety of child-friendly snacks (some for the kids, some for me) and other random “essentials.”
I’ve been trying to be a little bit better of a “fashion blogger” from time to time and carry a bag that actually matches my outfit and my spring bags seem to have a decent bit of variety, so I figured it would be worth it to show you all some of my favorites!
I think a basket bag is the perfect spring/summer bag, and I really wish this one from Target was still available to shop, but it was a great price so I’m not totally shocked that it sold out. For a similar look, this one is is great (but at a higher price point) and this one is very similar and well priced too. I also really like this round one (under $70) and this other Target steal!
I won this Weekend Wayfarer bag in an Instagram giveaway a month or so ago and was so excited because I found their bags at the Four Seasons Orlando and have been obsessed ever since! They also have another zip top style that’s really great (and colorful!) for summer.
This is quite possibly my favorite Target bag find ever! I couldn’t commit to spending a bunch of money on one of these clear bags so this one, at $22 was pretty much perfect. I like that it makes a fairly subtle statement and goes with a lot of things I already have. They also make one in black!
You can never go wrong with a classic bag that you’ll have forever. I have found myself getting out my more neutral, classics more often as the boys get older and I have to take less random stuff with us from place to place. This Prada bag was a gift from Clint for my 30th birthday and it’s one of my favorites. I also got this Gucci crossbody for my 35th birthday and love it in red as a little bit bolder neutral. Of course, you don’t have to spend the big bucks to get a great classic bag, this Madewell tote is a great one and Sole Society also makes a lot of really nice, timeless styles!
Summer is the perfect time to add some color with a fun handbag. This Pamela Munson bag has been such a go-to for me and I truly love it. I’ve actually been surprised at how many outfits it goes with and how often I carry it. I’m not a very “colorful” person when it comes to bags, so pastels were a good baby step for me!
