Nothing says fall like shopping. Scratch that, do I need an excuse at all to update my wardrobe? I think not.
While last week I covered essential footwear pieces, to ensure you are putting your best foot forward, this time we're talking handbags! I always love a great handbag that can add that extra spark your outfit is looking for. While I can become a creature of habit and stick to the same bag each and every time (just look at each blog post #embarrassing) I find that it is something worth investing your thought and money into. I mean, clearly I did not go into that purchase blindly if my bag not only works with every outfit I wear but is still appropriate to wear to virtually any occasion I may be caught in.
I do notice a trend though when I do pick up any new handbag and that is:
The Smaller the Better.
During this season of my life, I prefer to have smaller cross body bags that really only carry a cardholder, my phone, lipstick and keys. I don't like fusing with large totes and I don't like the added weight an oversized bag can bring. However, a smaller structured bag (in fun fall colors, oooohhh) can be fun and playful, while also holding all the essentials and then some.
Happy shopping, and happy October!
