It’s no secret that I love a great handbag.  I’d rather save for a handbag that I love than almost anything else.  I’m a pretty traditional dresser so the bag can be my personality statement for the day.  I don’t mind switching them out on an almost daily basis.  To me, a great handbag sets the tone.

A great handbag doesn’t have to be expensive.  By “great” I mean great style.  One of my favorites is this cute bag that is under $150 and has become a style staple.  It was extremely popular last spring and summer.  So many of you liked it.  It’s just as “great” this year, too.  You can see it here, herehere, and here.

This classic Tory is one that I’ve talked about a several times.  It is a simple, chic design that doesn’t have a huge logo on it.  I’m not a huge fan of logos because I think they can date an item.  Designers change their logos on purpose, you know.  I love this bag and get so many compliments on it and questions about who makes it as well.  It also comes in a beautiful blush and a soft white.  If I didn’t have this unique shaped white bag that I love, I’d be very tempted!

The one logo that I don’t think goes out of style is the Louis Vuitton.  My husband gave me the Mon Monogrammed version of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull several years ago and I never tire of carrying it.  Recently, this darling bag.  At first I was a bit hesitant about it but now I love it!  Talk about personality!  It really adds fun to my favorite white dresses seen here and here or any neutral or solid.  It actually has a gold chain handle as well so it’s quite versatile!

Below are some great styles for spring and summer.  I love carrying this blush bag seen here.  Right now, I’m on the hunt for the perfect light tan/cream/beige bag.  I’ve gathered I’m not sure why this color is so hard for me to decide on.  I’m loving this casual bag.  Which is your favorite?

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
