I am lightening up for the summer 2021 season! For my summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe, I am using my basket bag as my carry-all for days when I need to carry a lot of things, as well as for beach days, or when I wear espadrilles. It looks fabulous with espadrilles.

In addition to my beloved basket bag, I am deep into the pouch trend this summer! I started last year with my large black pouch, then I picked up this cute little yellow pouch with a cross body strap for some variety. Then, I broke down and splurged on this dark brown pouch with a chunky chain. All three pouches work with different outfits and serve different style purposes, yet they are all functional and fun to wear. I love a soft pouch!

Of course, no summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe would be complete without the 2021 IT bag! My beloved Prada Cleo is a fabulous everyday hobo bag which is just large enough to fit my wallet, phone, keys, mask, hand sanitizer, and keys. It’s also lightweight and easy to wear over my shoulder. Love! You will see me in this bag a lot over the summer season!

As always, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains classic bags which can be worn throughout the year, regardless of seasons; with the exception of the basket bag which is a spring/summer bag. My basket bag is classic, thankfully, so it will be easy to pull out next spring and summer; and for many spring/summer seasons thereafter! Love investment bags!

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?

Holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

My holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe is here! This holiday 2020 season, I am paring down my bag rotation since parties have been cancelled, and we will be home much more than in past holiday seasons.

For the holiday season, I need a workhorse, everyday bag. That bag is my Givenchy Antigona. It is a bag I have had in my wardrobe for years, and it’s strong construction, coupled with ideal interior capacity, makes it the perfect everyday bag of the season. If you are looking for an investment bag to enjoy for years, this is it!

Of course, it is always fun to mix things up! For casual occasions, when I don’t need a workhorse bag, this soft clutch is perfect. It holds coveted IT bag status, and it’s roomy enough to fit my sunglasses case, hand sanitizer, and few extra masks in addition to my wallet and phone. I also love that it’s red (flamma) inside! So fun!

Lastly, outdoor dining is beautiful during the holiday season as the streets are lined with lit up trees and seasonal decor. I am looking forward to wearing this sustainable and vegan, cork handbag on dressier occasions. It has golden flecks, and a detachable gold chain strap. It also happens to be red inside, love that! I also love the versatility of the detachable straps, it’s nice to have a bag which can be worn as a shoulder bag or clutch. Stay tuned for my upcoming review next week!
