The Everyday Handbag

Every woman needs that everyday bag to go to in the morning. You know what I'm talking about: the kind that will fit anything and everything you could possibly imagine, from your makeup bag and wallet, to the book your reading to make the commute a little less boring.

The bag I currently have holding that coveted spot is a Fossil satchel in a camel brown leather that I acquired during the Christmas holiday's back in 2007. My little baby has held up but is begging for retirement. I figured, as long I was spending loads of useless hours drooling over pretty handbags, why not share some good options for those that may be in the same boat as well?

No need for confusion, I did just feature a white handbag just as we're about to get hit with Fall full force. Reasons why I love a white bag, and why it's cool to do for fall? It's bright and a great complimentary piece. Imagine you in your black trousers and heels wearing a rust orange silk blouse and that bag is on your arm. You just took a bit of Summer with you into a new season in a very appropriate way.

The Longchamp is a tried and true by just about everyone kind of bag, and there's a reason for that. It's functional. For those who are still in school, or the working women who has to lug a laptop or books around as a part of their job, everything fits nicely inside and you still have room for the daily necessities.

The Michael Kors bag is just beautiful. I tend to feel like satchel handbags are everywhere the last season or so and I happen to think he does them beautifully, and his prices cause no sweating compared to the popular Mulberry bag.

The last bag  is another classic silhouette turning up everywhere. I don't know about you but I think there's something powerful and sexy about a women carrying a handbag that resembles a briefcase. Who doesn't want to look like they mean business?

Thank you for reading and have a good day!
