My handbag capsule wardrobe for winter 2024 is on the smaller side. I don’t need a tote bag this season, so my totes are stored for spring, and my beautiful Givenchy Antigona, which will emerge again in spring, is stored and waiting to return next season.

For the winter 2024 season, my bags are smaller and able to be worn cross body or over the shoulder. This black shoulder bag is my go-to for daily wear. It is easy to wear for running errands as well as going out to lunch, shopping, etc. I’m thinking of getting one in an additional color, I love this bag so much!

Of course, this little green bag is perfect for when I need a pop of color added to my ensembles. Since I am not a huge Peach Fuzz person, shades of green and blue will continue to be my colors as we head into 2024. After all, they are both on the spring color palette, so I’m good! Plus, this fabulous green hue is a classic color in world of Bottega Veneta. Love that!

This top handle bag is perfect for days when I need more room in my bag since I can fit gloves, a scarf, and snacks inside. Love!

Now, let’s talk about this mini tote bag. Although labelled as mini by Mulberry, it really is in the small tote category. It fits gloves and snacks too! This is my go-to bag when I want a more structured look, or simply need to carry more than a wallet, keys, phone. I am contemplating investing in another color of this bag too. Love it!

It’s nice having a paired down handbag capsule wardrobe for the winter season. It’s a quiet season after the holidays and not much is going on, so keeping things simple is always nice.

What are you favorite winter handbags?

Holiday capsule wardrobe 2023

The holiday season is upon us. This means it is time to put together a few holiday outfits for Christmas parties, holiday parties, and a general festive feeling. Love that!

This holiday season, I am keeping my looks low key and using classic pieces combined with seasonal fabrics and colors to create a seasonal look. A black pencil skirt is classic and always chic. It can easily be paired with a holiday green blouse or party-ready velvet top.

For more casual occasions, jeans go with everything! Ha! This green blouse and velvet top go perfectly with jeans and can be dressed up with a classic and dressy handbag. I plan to wear the boots with my jeans, and the Mary Janes with my pencil skirt.

When it comes to jewelry, you may have classic and sparkling pieces in your collection. Wear them! If you have office parties, or more low-key celebrations, classic hoops are the answer.

Of course, nails are an easy way to get into the holiday spirit. Both Chanel and Dior have fabulous holiday nail polish collections. I am in love!

Can we talk investment dressing for a minute? As you can see, I have a Chanel bag featured in this holiday capsule wardrobe. This is a classic handbag I purchased close to twenty years ago. While the price increase over the years may be cost prohibitive for many people, there are plenty of equally classic handbags on the market in a similar style. I highly recommend investing in a dressy black handbag you can pull out for dinner, parties, and more. Here are a few currently on the market which will make fabulous investment handbags you will cherish for decades to come:

Also, let’s talk pencil skirts. This is a classic and chic article of clothing everyone should have in their wardrobes. If you don’t already own one, I highly recommend investing in a black pencil skirt. They never go out of style and can be worn for dinner, parties, and are always office appropriate. You won’t regret owning a black pencil skirt! This one is under $100. Love that!

Enjoy the holiday season and stay tuned for more holiday coverage!

This fall season, we are still seeing mini shoulder bags which can double as cross body bags, hobo bags, and soft and squishy bags. I need to invest in a soft and squishy bag! So far, my fall capsule wardrobe consists of the handbags I reach for the most often; my mini bags and my two favorite hobo bags.

As the season progresses, I will post an updated capsule in October, as for now, fall is going to be about mini bags and hobo bags for me! I love reaching for a neutral handbag, as well as this stunning green handbag. These are my tried-and-true favorites!

Of course, the anonymous handbag is still going strong, and these handbags fit into the current trend, which isn’t really a trend, it is a timeless look, but still hotter than normal; so, I digress. . .

I am still in the hunt for a handbag in any shade of red, a dark green handbag, and a soft and squishy handbag. Here are a few from my current wishlist:
