We are finally getting some fall weather! I met my Mom for brunch the other day, and the weather was mild. It was perfect to wear jeans, and this fun little peek-a-boo shoulder tee. This tee will definitely be versatile this fall season. In addition to casual looks with jeans, I plan to pair it with my green pleated skirt for dressy occasions. Love!
These jeans are roughly three years old. I haven’t fit into them since I originally purchased them, so it was really nice to be able to put them on! Not only do they fit, they are one size too big! Thankfully I have a new belt to help keep my pants up! Replacing a wardrobe takes time; especially after losing thirty pounds!
In case you missed my post on Sunday, this cute little daytime tote bag is from Coach’s spring 2022 runway collection. It’s really easy to wear daily, and it’s fun to have something from next season! You can read my full review here.

I hope you are starting to enjoy some fall weather where you are! We are toggling back and forth between mild temperatures and 90’s. Ugh!
How cute it this little everyday tote by Coach?! I was thrilled when I saw it on Coach’s New York Fashion Week runway for spring 2022. After viewing this new collection, I went to Coach’s Instagram to see if there were any close-up photos of the bag, since my photo service only had full look shots, and no detailed pictures. Lo and behold! This bag turned out to be a “See now buy now” handbag from their spring 2022 collection! What?!?!? Yes!!!
Like the handbag fan that I am, I quickly went to Coach’s website to find this beautiful, everyday tote that I knew I needed in my life. There it was! Coach had their spring 2022 Cashin Carry tote 22 available in four colors on the home page of their website. Score!
The four colors available were all really pretty, but I ultimately decided that the vanilla hue was what I needed in my life. This color is a neutral shade with a yellow tinge, so I felt like I would be able to wear it now, in the fall season, and then again in the spring and summer seasons of next year. It’s a great color! Plus, there is a detachable, cross body strap in coral; another hot hue for spring 2022. If I wanted to go a little more neutral, I could always switch the cross body strap with something not so bright. Right now, the bright strap is fun, and I am enjoying it.
Now, let’s chat about how fabulous the Coach Cashin Carry tote 22 is for everyday wear! There is no disputing that a small tote is a handbag to use everyday. You can easily reach inside and pull out what you need. Plus, the bag is small in stature, but very roomy on the inside. This small little tote fits more than just everyday purse essentials. You can put other items inside too, such as a folded up wool scarf, snacks, gloves, and a snow hat. It’s very roomy! As a mom, a roomy handbag, that isn’t bulky, is a must-have for everyday use.
As you can see, the interior capacity of the Coach Cashin Carry tote 22 is very roomy. These are my typical items I carry around in my handbag on a daily basis. I often add a mask, and as the weather cools down, a folded scarf will also go inside the bag. There is plenty of room for everything I need to carry around. Love that!
The leather on the Coach Cashin Carry tote 22 is soft yet structured. The bag holds it’s shape no matter how much is stuffed inside. It is also lightweight enough when empty to not be a weight issue when stuffed with everything we all need to carry around.
In addition to the main compartment, there is one zipper pocket, and one credit card sized slot, inside the bag. These are great for important items you want to keep secure such as a vaccine card, ID, passport, tickets, and more.
I understand Coach has only released a small inventory of the spring 2022 version of the Coach Cashin Carry tote 22 right now. The full collection, with more color choices and multiple sizes, will debut in the early part of 2022. I will update this post with new links when the collection expands.
What do you think of this cute little tote bag priced under $500? Do you love it as much as I do?
The hobo bag is back! Yes, I am serious! I know, I know, for the past few years I have been telling you that hobo bags are coming back; but seriously, they are finally here! This is an important handbag trend for 2021, and well into the next few years.
Hobo bags slowly began to re-emerge as a handbag trend a few years ago when designers began to take inspiration from the 1990s. Everyone in the 1990s owned a black hobo bag; big or small. As the new millennium came in, hobos bags continued for a few more years, even presenting themselves as extremely oversized. Watch out for that on the runways in the next couple seasons. But I digress. . .
Last year, we started with the Coach Swinger, a classic from the 1990s, and the new Prada Cleo. These structured hobo bags offered a retro vibe, and took us back to the end of the grunge era when minimalism was king, and hobo bags rested upon our shoulders.
Fast forward to 2021, and designers are giving us classic and chic renditions of the hobo bag. These modern hobo bags could easily have been pulled from the archives of designers in the ’90’s. They are chic, simple, and timeless. Love!
If you still have your favorite hobo bag from 20-30 years ago, pull it out of the back of your closet and rock it! If not, it’s time to invest in a new bag! There are small hobos, micro hobos, medium hobos, and large hobos. Pick the size that works for your life. You can also be like me, and invest in more than one! Why not? This is a classic style you can wear even when it’s not on the runway.
As you know, I love the Coach Swinger and the Prada Cleo, but I do have my eyes on a slouchier style too. One can never own enough handbags I always say!
