Sadly, spring break everywhere is over. Even if you’ve had to drag yourself away from the beach and back home, you’ll be back in no time. It’s nearly May and June is when the fun begins all over again. This metallic tote is just the thing to take along to outings at a local lake or even to far-off destinations like Cabo.
It will easily hold all the essentials – a towel, sunscreen, snacks, drinks, an iPad and summer reading material. Not only is it super useful, it’s stylish and trendy. Totes in this size are hard to find in bright, fun metallics. This way you can steer clear of drab dark hues.
If you haven’t been following Coachella street style, we’ll break it down for you real quick. It’s a three day music fest and every 20-something celebrity across America has been spotted there over the weeked. (That’s a lot of pretty heads nursing hangovers this Monday morning.) Add the entire world’s fashion blogger royalty and you have a TON of festival style pictures to take notes from.
The statement we saw nearly everyone making is that denim cutoffs (or jorts) are very, very in. The more shredded they look, the better. Ankle boots, cowboy boots, flower headbands, and bright colors are all very in. And Nicky Hilton, heiress extraordinaire surprised us by showing up with the RockStar Calfskin Leather Bag in Red. The studs are what really separates it from a regular tote. And since most people actually have to work for a living (or at least go to college to learn how to work), they don’t like peeping Toms knowing whats in their bag. Hence, we decided to forego the clear version and present to you the fiery red hot version.
Whether you’re mingling with everyone who’s anyone in the music and fashion industries at Coachella or whether you’re Monaco’s royalty lounging around on a yacht, this bag will look fantastic on your arm. The shape is a vintage, timeless classic. The throwback to the 60s makes it elegant as well as super trendy.
In case you haven’t been perusing through the fashion blogs lately, we’ll have you know that tassels are very in and super hot right now. This bag has a tassel accent without going overboard with tassels along the entire bag so anyone can rock this look. The color keeps it fresh and flirty for spring. If you missed your chance to tote this along to Palm Springs, California this year, take it to the next music festival. Electric Daisy, perhaps? The wildly popular blue tint would fit right in without blending into the background. After all, this bag is what you wear to make a statement, not be a wallflower.
We are absolutely in love with this super cute chocolate suede bag. Not only is the shape perfect for any age, it’s just the color we needed. Surprised? Carry on reading, we’ll explain.
The slim purse is so comfy to carry over the shoulder because of its chain (which is also very trendy, by the way.) The clasp makes it very easy to open and close, making this the ideal bag to carry to work, class, dinner or the mall. The dark suede chocolate hued panels make this a timeless, sophisticated bag. While spring and summer call for brights and patterns, this is the bag you’ll need for more serious, understated days. And if you’re going to go for a dark color, why not a happy chocolate tone?
This quilted Moulin Rouge Bag in Midnight Blue is just the thing to carry on a warm spring night in Paris. Picture yourself strolling along the Seine river as it reflects the pretty lights of Parisian nightlife and the stars above. This bag in the crook of your arm as you climb up to take in the breathtaking view from the Eiffel tower, or sitting by your side as you taste delectable dishes at a French restaurant.
Even if your passport has expired and you haven’t the time or money to go anywhere, simply carrying this bag with a monochromatic outfit is enough to let your imagination go wild. Simply pretending you’re somewhere else when your look is complete with this Moulin Rouge bag. Even the color is what beautiful Parisian nights are made of. So chic. J’adore!
This Katy Leather tote in Burgundy is absolutely fabulous for two specific reasons. One, the shape. It looks so expensive yet it isn’t. The size, cut and materials come together to create a fancy, elite footballer’s wife or billionaire heiress look that you can have without paying big bucks.
Second, the color. We love, love, love this shade of burgundy. It’s not quite red wine and it’s not radish burgundy either. It’s on the soft mauve side of burgundy, much like that elusive shade of lipstick you love but can never quite find because it’s always either too expensive or out of stock. Well, we’ve found it and it’s in the shape of a handbag. One, please!
There was a high fashion magazine spread a few years ago which featured an Oscar winning actress on safari in a beautiful and obscure part of Africa. She was wearing a gauzy white cotton dress, brown calf-length boots and a leather canvas bag. While we’re fuzzy on the exact bag she was carrying, this one would suffice.
The Mila Top Handle bag in green screams “take me to a safari!” This exotic looking bag is sturdy and will weather any storm or adventure. The color would go best with shades of white, gray, green and browns. Khakhi outfits would be greatly enhanced in terms of style if you throw in this bag.
