Guide to what bag to wear and when to wear it!
My favorite accessory is hands down the purse! I never leave home with out one, Im not the kind of girl who can just get by with a wristlet. The way I look at is it completes your outfit! A bag can really create texture and add color to your look. It doesn't always have to be bold to make a statement I love a subtle statement bag to compliment a outfit, thats already saying it all!
So here is a guide on the perfect bag to fit your life's adventures!
With summer starting, it means so do the outings and vacations. If your headed to the zoo with your family, shopping trip in the city or a sightseeing in a new place. A backpack is perfect for any excursion your headed on. The practicality is a given you can throw it on your back and your completely hands free for anything that comes your way. What I love about a back pack is you can find an style to compliment your needs. If your going for a more chic look for lunch and shopping try a mini size. They serve the purpose of handsfree but still understated and sleek. When you feel like you need your life to fit in a bag, a larger size is perfect for all your needs and still scream style!
The sleek mini
We all know great things come in small packages and a mini backpack is definitely capable of holding your necessities for a day or night on the town. I love a mini in a statement color bright or pastel both say a lot when it comes to these little bags.
I wore this to my friends graduation brunch. I think mixing a soft pink with an all black outfit is perfect to give your look a softer feel for the daytime.
The metallic mini that makes a huge statement
Perfect for storing in your trunk while you hit the gym and want to meet your friends for lunch after but need the perfect accent to your all black workout look. Metallic in any style bag can really turn up and understated look of your basics. The metallic elevates your look for any occasion here I wore it from a day time brunch to an evening dinner. The size and material make it sleek but the casualness of the backpack keeps it appropriate for everyday.
Even a larger sized back pack can be sleek but yet practical enough for all your daily necessities. I love a leather back pack thats perfect for pretty much any adventure your partaking in. I have this one from Zara that I bought last year when I saw one of my friends traveling around Europe in it as well as sight seeing in Las Vegas. I had to pick it up for myself not necessarily for a grand trip but sometimes a girl has needs and one of them is a the perfect bag to fit the rest of her stuff! This style is also great as a sleek diaper bag.
The Cross body
The crossbody style is another that serves for practicality but can also be extremely sleek. My favorite cross body style is one with a chain strap very Chanel inspired. A chain strap serves as a piece of jewelry in my eyes. I love how it looks to pair a chain strap bag laying across your torso while wearing a chocker it can almost give the illusion of one connected chain. Crossbody styles can come in many sizes the smaller style is great for a night time look.
I searched everywhere for a bright colored patten leather quilted cross body that was relatively inexpensive. I finally found this one on Amazon, for some reason I never even thought to look there and it was under $30! I wanted a bag that was very bold and this style reminded me of candy! The size is perfect for a small wallet your phone keys and lip gloss. Find this bad here!

You can never go wrong with a classic color and style. Sometimes when your outfit is taking the lead your bag just needs to serve as function, but you should never sacrifice the style. Go for a classic subtle color. I found this one on Amazon as well and its slightly larger then the one above. I love wearing it with sneakers and jeans or yoga pants. I have shown a few ways I have worn this bag. I used it to toughen up a soft color pallet, added a classic twist on the athleisure look, to paired with leather and lace.
A satchel is one of the most versatile options of handbags since its usually designed with handles as well as a strap. Satchels are great for the office, depending on the size you choose they can be great for carrying around some of your essentials i.e. iPad, books or an extra sweater.
