It’s in The Bag: 11 Must-Have Bags for Summer

11 Must-Have Bags for Summer

If there is one item that I am always, ALWAYS on the look out for when I’m shopping, it’s a new bag! Sure this (slight) obsession causes me to literally stumble through my closet sifting through clutches, backpacks, etc to find my favorite pair of sandals (my closet is kind of a mess), but I don’t really care. Because much like a good bag can complete an outfit, my bag collection completes me. KIDDING. Totally kidding!

But I do really, really like bags…handbags, shoulder bags, clutches, tote, backpacks, etc, etc. So, today I’m rounding up 11 of my favorite bags for summer.

YES! Helen, that Rachel Comey bag is so good.


i also love bags and have way too many! However, that won’t stop me from buying more. I love the round Rachel Comey bag and the Pom Pom bag from Asos is adorable!



Aren’t those clutches great, Kimberly?! I have a major crush on that Clare V patchwork one.


Absolutely love the patchwork clutch from Need Supply and the pink suede clutch from Belgrave Crescent!


Totally agree, Michelle. That Loeffler Randall backpack is so fun.
