Last summer, I ended up going through my closet and purging a TON of accessories. I sold a bunch, and donated others– but my load off was comprised mostly of bags! I wanted a fresh reset, especially now that I know better what I want and need from the bags in my closet. I’ve been injecting some newness into my bag collection in recent months, and I thought that now was a better time than ever to share some summer favorites in the handbag department!
I think part of loving your accessories is being mindful of the categories you’re covering, and where you have a little gap. You might have an incredible neutral bag for every day, but what about a sparkly or dressed-up piece for when you’re going to something fancy-ish in the evening? The same gal who hangs on your arm all day every day just won’t do it! You get the point. Today I’m sharing a bunch of options that span several categories, and all of them are excellent summer-style picks. Let me know which ones are your faves!
Hyacinth Tote Handbag
This straw bag is so elegant and also neutral enough to go with everything. It’s a nice mix of versatile and casual, and it’s under $40!
Woven Circle Satchel
I have a newfound love for woven bags and I am swooning over this black woven satchel. SO COOL.
Mini Rattan Suitcase Satchel
I wore this rattan bag to lunch the other day and think it’s so charming. It’s a blend of preppy and retro!
Beaded Floral Clutch
This beaded floral clutch is such a great find. The color is gorgeous, and it’s fancy enough to dress up for the evening.
Beaded Shoulder Bag
This beaded bag is one of my favorite purchases of the summer so far! I adore the colors and the fact that it can be used as a clutch or worn with the removable braided shoulder strap.
Straw Mini Tote Handbag
This neutral basket bag is so feminine, and the price is right!
Beaded Metallic Clutch
I love this beaded pouch for the evening. The metallic beads and tassel are so pretty, plus it can hold my phone!
Palm Leaf Tote
If you’re looking for more of a beach bag/tote idea, this one is so chic and can be personalized.
I can’t really explain why, but I want to put the textile of this pouch all over my house and body and life. LOL
Marlo Ball Mesh Handle Bag
I’m obsessed with the color and texture of this bag…and the name of course! 😉
Tory Burch Miller Basketweave Shoulder Bag
I’m forever and ALWAYS a Tory Burch Handbag Stan, and this neutral one is a must. Stunning!
Tory Burch Kira Patent Small Crossbody Satchel
Speaking of Tory, this ocean blue bag reminds me of the waters of the Caribbean.
The Sydney Crossbody Bag: Woven Leather Edition
I love the woven pattern on this neutral handbag.
This wicker pouch bag is so charming, it makes me want to plan a Clam Bake immediately.
Angela Roi Cher Tote, light grey: I have this tote and can’t get enough of it. The color I have is the darker grey, but I love this lighter grey for summer! It’s the perfect work bag.
