Spring 2015 purses

Monday, April 13, 2015

I've been struggling with bag-decisions this spring. So, like a good blogger, I decided to do my research (you're welcome!). Naturally, Mr. B happened upon me while doing said research and the first thing he said was 'get off that website'. I obviously had to explain that I was doing 'research' and that it was all for the greater good. I'm not sure he was convinced...

Anyways, this spring the tote, bucket and crossbody style bags seem to be the most popular.

Thankfully, there are also a plethora of options for a variety of price-points AND the color choices are A-MAZING!!!

Here are some of my favs:


Tote

The tote is my favorite style of bag. Likely because I tend to carry around way too much stuff. I need to be able to fit my wallet, water, phone, lipstuff, notebook (just in case) and some stuff for the little miss. Most totes accommodate my collection of 'purse necessities'. 





Bucket

The bucket-style bag is everywhere. I am not completely sold on it for myself but I have seen some people pull it off well. A plus: like the tote, lots of room! 





Crossbody

This is your go-to bag when you don't want sore shoulders from carrying around everything you own. Perfect for a long day shopping, day at the zoo with the kiddos or concert. You can keep all you need close with little effort!




Fan bags

Alright, you got me, this category wasn't found on any spring 2015 accessory list BUT that doesn't mean it's not super awesome.

Did you know Dooney and Bourke have an MLB line??? Specifically, Toronto Blue Jays?? (for other baseball fans, they have other teams too).

They are made of real leather and are a-freaking-dorable! I have already advised Mr. B, that should he struggle for future gift ideas, he should feel free to refer back here :) 

Here are two of my favs:




What is your must-have purse this season???? Do share because I'm not quite decided yet :) (links appreciated!)

  11. I have been searching high and low for a cognac tote that didn't cost too much. Every time I find one the color is off, so I have given up! I did just get a white tote similar to the yellow one at the top for $7 at Walmart! I love it! And it wipes clean! Love all the ones you picked out!

  13. How do you decide between all of these?! I am dying for a Tory Burch, but Target has some awesome bags out right now. And I also really want a Rebecca Minkoff Leo clutch in light blue. You'll have to let us know what you choose!
