Spring 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe from top left: black puffy clutch / small baguette (under $300) / yellow mini pouch with strap / black shoulder bag / straw tote (under $500) / classic IT bag /

My spring 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe is a mix of fun and practical. This spring season, I really want to add some cheery style to my everyday looks. This cute little yellow pouch fits into the pouch clutch trend, and adds a fun pop of color to a casual outfit. Love that!

Natural fibers and texture are also huge this spring season. This small straw tote bag is perfect to fit into that trend and provide a roomy handbag solution for day-to-day activities. I love this little tote!

Classic IT bags, and IT bags from the 1990s are also a huge trend this year. Reach into the back of your closet and pull out your IT bags from ten to twenty-five years ago! They are relevant! My favorite is my Chloe Marcie which is soft, slouchy, and great for daily use. It is hard to photograph with a group, which is why you don’t see it in my group photos.

Since I am still working from home, I don’t really need a tote or large work bag right now. I have stored my totes which will come in handy later this year to use as beach bags, and hopefully travel bags after we all get our vaccines! So for now, I am wearing smaller bags which are great for running errands and daily activities.

Which types of bags are you rocking this spring?

Casual and cozy on a winter day

casual winter outfit los gatos street style it bags 2021 under $500

wearing: hoop earrings / grey scarf (under $100) / ivory sweater / spring nail polish / bead genuine gemstone bracelets c/o TiffsJeweldom (only $25 each!!) / black handbag (IT bag under $300) / distressed jeans (under $50) / Gucci sneakers /

Well, the warm weather we enjoyed last week went away quickly! We are now in a cold weather pattern, so it’s time to get back to bundling up! I love this classic ivory sweater from The Perfect Provenance. It’s a fabulous go-to sweater I know I will be wearing for many years to come. If you haven’t invested in one yet, I highly recommend it! It’s so soft and cozy; perfect for a winter day!

Raise your hand if you love jewels. My hand is way up! How fabulous are these gemstone bracelets! They are designed in San Jose by a mother/daughter design team who is extremely active in the community. They do so much volunteer work to help the community, I am not sure how they found the time to start  a design business; but they did! Love it!

All of the bracelets by TiffsJeweldom are handmade in San Jose, California. They are created from genuine gemstone beads and adorned with different charms depending on the gemstone. The gemstone beads are a great size. Sometimes beaded bracelets have beads which are too big; making it clumsy when typing on a keyboard, or writing something down. Of course, there is the other extreme where beads can be too small and look cheap. Thankfully these beads are the perfect size! They look much more expensive than they are; and I can type or write all day long without them getting in the way. Love that!

I wore this casual look while walking around downtown Los Gatos with my family. We enjoyed getting out of the house, and stopped for some boba tea along the way. We are definitely looking forward to the stay-at-home order being lifted so we can start doing more things! I think the Bay Area is the most locked down part of the country! How are things where you are?

Be sure to check out TiffsJeweldom. These beautiful bracelets are a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day, or a gift for yourself! I love mine and plan to wear them often.

Coach Swinger handbag review

Coach Swinger handbag review: spring 2021 nail polish / Coach Swinger in black leather (under $300) /

This is the year of the IT bag comeback! This cute little handbag by Coach was a hot IT bag roughly twenty years, and it’s back for a second round in the spotlight. The Coach Swinger bag is the affordable IT bag of the year. This cute little leather handbag is priced under $300 and has everything you need in 2021 for fitting right into the hottest handbag trends.

Flashback IT bags are hotter than hot in 2021. The Coach Swinger is exactly that; it is a comeback kid IT bag. In addition to fitting in the second-time-around IT bag trend, the Coach Swinger offer the baguette silhouette which is a hot trend in handbags this year. Plus, it has two straps! Whaaa-aaat? Yes, you read that right. If you don’t like wearing your bag under your armpit, which isn’t convenient when you are at the park chasing your kids, or running to the supermarket to shop for food, you can switch out the short and trendy strap for the long, cross body strap the bag comes with. Yes, it comes with a cross body strap. Love that!

This bag is the ultimate day-into-evening bag for when things start opening up! In fact, it will also be a great bag for travel since you can switch out the strap for sightseeing or enjoying a beautiful dinner at a luxurious restaurant. I am very excited about the return of the Coach Swinger for 2021!

Inside my Coach Swinger bag: handbag / phone case / lipstick /

What fits inside the Coach Swinger? It’s a small bag, so don’t expect to stuff a baggie of crackers inside, or use it as a shopping tote. This little bag fits the bare essentials: wallet, keys, lipstick, and phone. That’s all you really need, and it all fits perfectly inside with space for your fingers to reach and grab something. Don’t worry, it’s not stuffed, and you won’t chip a nail reaching for your keys. This bag has just enough room for you grab what you need from inside.

I’m in love with my new Coach Swinger bag! I am not sure why I didn’t purchase one back in the day when it was hot the first time around. I do remember people carrying it around!

The Coach Swinger comes in several neutral colors, as well as a seasonal hue or two. It is also available in nylon which is priced under $200, and is great for rainy days.
