Today is National Handbag Day! I love this day! I am a handbag collector! Handbags and I go together like peas & carrots. They are one of my favorite things to buy and my husband has now stopped asking “Do you need another one?!?!?” He knows the answer is always YES!! You see, handbags are loyal. They don’t get too small or too big. They don’t hurt when you wear them. And they last for years. Being pregnant, gaining weight then loosing the weight means my wardrobe has constantly been changing over the past 5 years. Since we don’t know if we are done having kids this trend can continue for a couple more years. Handbags have let me feel fashionable through all this. I’m celebrating National Handbag Day by adding a new bag to my collection and sharing part of my collection with you.
love for big handbags
I like big bags. Ever since becoming a mom I like to be able to only carry one bag. Diaper bags are nice but don’t always make the cut. I use big bags daily and switch them out often. I have a few go-to big bags.
This black hobo bag has been my saving grace lately. First off, it goes with everything and it carries a lot. Fall starts my busy season for work and this bag is so versatile. I can wear it cross body while I shop for clients and shorten it to a shoulder strap for quicker trips.
I also like to have a handbag that is a big pop of color! This is an easy way to add a statement to any outfit. I like to add it to an outfit with all neutrals.
clutches are my go-to
Clutches are my next favorite. I use them for date nights, girls nights, or any errand I get to run alone. I also like that I can throw the clutch in my bigger bag quickly and be set to go.
This leopard clutch is a good fall piece to add to your wardrobe. Leopard is a neutral in my wardrobe and love to wear it multiple ways. This stripe clutch came in handy when I was pregnant. Big bags were not working towards the end, they competed with my big belly.
national handbag day picks
My Dream Bag! I believe every woman needs to have a dream bag. I have one Louis Vuitton handbag and I love it. I bought it in Rome on our pre-baby Europe trip. It was fun to go to the store and pick out the bag I had been dreaming of for so many years and now I want to add another to my collection. I am slowly saving up for it. I will justify this purchase very easily. I recently had my second daughter and nothing is better than having an heirloom item to pass down to each of my girls.
Dreaming of this bag right now!
