My Favorite Bags For Every Occasion This Season

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then a good handbag is… her gay husband?! Seriously, a killer handbag can be just as much of a status symbol or statement accessory as an expensive piece of jewelry. And often, they’re just as good of an investment. When it comes to my outfits, I think I get the most questions of all about my accessories, namely my handbag choices. I’ve spent many years collecting a cool selection of every type of bag, from classic designer, to unique clutches and trendy pieces that make an outfit pop. A cool bag has always been one of my style secret weapons for taking an outfit to the next level – even a look as simple as a tee and jeans will look effortlessly chic with an eye-catching bag.

From bags with chic shapes, beautiful embroidery, embossed leather, and interesting fabrics like cork or straw, there are a lot of bags on my wish list this Spring. Whether you’re getting dressed up for an evening out, heading to your daily meetings or to weekend brunch, there’s always a bag to suit your look. Scroll down below to shop my picks by outfit!

A Night Out


 

When you’re dressing up for a night out with your girls, or happy hour with the hubs, a compact, polished bag is my favorite look this season. Think a velvet (like mine in these shots) or a solid clutch, or a mini crossbody.

For The Office


 

As a professional, you need something that can carry everything you need for work, while still looking chic. A work bag may be on the bigger side – it should be able to fit your laptop or tablet, a notebook, a planner, a pen, and some makeup for doing touch ups throughout the day. This calls for a bigger, more architectural-shaped bag like a shopper, satchel, or classic leather backpack.

Flea Market Strolling


 

Now it really depends on what kind of items you’re looking to purchase that day, but on weekends I like to keep it casual and small – like a cute cylinder straw bag. These make great beach bags for summer, too!

Weekend Brunch


 

It’s the weekend, so it’s time for your more fun and bright bags to make an appearance! There are some beautiful patterns, tapestries, graffiti-inspired bags and embroidery out there at the moment.

The Everything Bag


 

Now this is the bag you use almost daily, so it should fit all your essentials without being too bulky. Some girls have multiple “everything bags” (including me), but I normally like to carry a bigger satchel because it’s just much easier to find things in there and fit a lot more of what I need.

  1. I know this post is about bags, but I just love that blazer haha!

  2. I agree with you most of the people has the perception that handbag is a status symbol, however, its more than that as it adds style to what you wear.

  • One of my biggest saving graces during pregnancy and these first few months with Honor, has been having a solid group of mummy friends to talk to. Things can get lonely, even when you're surrounded by people. Which sounds silly but am I right?! It's so important to have someone who's going through (or gone through) what you are, to share your worries with, go to for advice, or just plain vent to. I was so happy to find the @peanut app, which is a social network for meeting like-minded mummies in your area. I've been using their Pages feature to get advice on everything from going back to work, post-natal fitness, and weaning Honor onto foods. I've had some amazing tips from other mums - I wish their new 'Pregnancy' page had been around when I was pregnant! If you're pregnant, or a new mummy, get on @peanut and share your tips with me! #peanutapp
