Statement Bags for Spring.

*Image above via NST Studio featuring their darling gingham knot bag.

I am swooning over this impractical canvas tote for Loewe for spring — impractical because the light-colored canvas will surely show wear before the season is out but that color! The shape! The leather trim! A few other handbags I love for the upcoming season, starting with the eight below and including some additional statements at all price points…

(01.) ELEGANT LADY BAG IN BLUE CROC

(02.) SCALLOPED-TOP TOTE (50% OFF!)

(03.) CHIC J.W. ANDERSON BELT BAG

(04.) CORDED BUCKET BAG (50% OFF)

(05.) BOTTEGA IS STILL PEAK FASHION AT THE MOMENT

(06.) NAGHEDI — LOVE THIS CLASSIC WOVEN STYLE THEY ARE KNOWN FOR, OR THIS CHUNKIER STYLE (SEEN ABOVE)

(07.) ETSY FIND: BAMBOO BAG WITH BOW

(08.) ANYTHING FROM ANYA, BUT ESPECIALLY THIS BOW TOTE (SEEN ABOVE) OR THIS QUIRKY ALL EYES BAG

A few others I’m loving at the moment…

P.S. A few other fun springtime accessories: these corded bow earrings for $40, pastel Vejas or Tods on sale for $160 (!), and my favorite $69 sunglasses in a new color. And lots more warmer weather finds here.

P.P.S. Time to whitewash the house and musings on prayer.

  1. Bags! I love them. I laughed when I saw Hervé Chapelier on your list … I had two in high school/college for carrying books, one in chocolate brown/pink and the other in black/tan. The funniest thing, though, is that I still have a tiny one in lavender/cream — given to me by my best childhood friends for my 16th birthday — and I still use it to this day for travel toiletries! That’s saying a lot because I was traveling at least 2x/month prior to the pandemic 🙂 I love that this brand is still around!

    More recently, I’ve come to love MZ Wallace. I have one Metro tote, a laptop case, and an iPad case. The latter two items feel a little bit extra, but I love how they coordinate with my tote!

    Also, those pastel Vejas — I covet them so much! The absolute last thing I need is another pair of sneakers, but I have major heart eyes for them.

  2. Ah, haven’t thought of Herve bags since the mid-2000s, what a delightful throwback.I thought I was *so* cool with my deep aubergine/khaki trimmed one, ha!

    May have to get one, for equal parts nostalgia and utility (they’re such a great size – and washable!)

    1. Yes!! I know, I am seriously kicking myself for giving them away at some point after college. I had a great one in sky blue with a green bottom and another amazing one in bright red. So fun!
