Coach Cashin Carry tote 22 review

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?

Thanks for stopping by!

Summer beach bags 2021

summer beach bags 2021 straw totes

Summer beach bags from top left: small straw tote (IT bag under $500) / large beach bag (under $100) / designer IT bag / classic straw tote (under $300) / stripe straw tote / popular designer straw tote with shoulder straps /

Beach season is here! I love a fabulous straw beach tote this season since straw totes are hotter than hot; plus, when they get sand inside, they are easier to clean than a canvas tote. Love that!

Summer beach bags come in various sizes depending on what you need it for at the beach. A smaller tote can handle items such as a book, sunscreen, and baseball cap. Whereas a larger tote can fit a towel, lightweight sweatshirt for when the fog rolls in, a book, sunscreen, and snacks. The size you get depends on what you like to bring with you to the beach. I also like to look at my beach tote as something which can work at the pool too. So that is something to keep in mind if you are looking at the beach bag to work at the pool too.

I tend to carry two beach bags because I have kids who like to bring extra items to the beach. I normally will have one large beach bag filled with multiple towels and sweatshirts, and also a smaller beach tote with a book, snacks, and sunscreen. Yes, I am one of those bag ladies at the beach. haha

Loewe basket bag mini review

loewe basket bag mini review

Raise your hand if you are excited about warm weather; and the upcoming spring and summer seasons? My hand is waaaaay up! One of the hot the trends this upcoming spring/summer season is the basket bag. Another hot trend in handbags is the inverted triangle or “fan” silhouette. This cute little basket bag by Loewe offers both the basket weave trend, and the fan shape trend. Love that!

It’s always nice to have a bag which is small yet mighty during the warm spring/summer months. The mini basket bag by Loewe offers just that. It’s a small tote which fits all my purse essentials, yet still has room for a a scarf, snacks, mask, and hand sanitizer. The woven fabrication is easy to clean if sand gets in, and it has the natural texture we are looking for this upcoming warm weather season. Love!

The Loewe basket bag in the mini size offers more room inside than you would think. I have plenty of space for everything I need! There is also plenty of space left to add my camera, a scarf, mask, and hand sanitizer. I can even fit a snack bag for my kids inside. The Loewe basket bag comes with a thick dust bag in addition to the thin dust bag for storage. The thicker one can be placed inside the basket bag to secure what is inside. You can simply pull the drawstring, and voila! The basket bag closes, and you no longer run the risk of the bag tipping over. That being said, when placed on a flat surface, the Loewe basket bag has good balance and does not tip over.

There are two adjustable straps on the front and back of the Loewe basket bag. I adjusted them a little bit longer so I can push the bag up to my shoulder if need be. Otherwise, this is a great bag to carry handheld, or on your forearm. It’s lightweight, and not bulky. I love an easy to carry bag!

I am looking forward to warmer weather, so I can wear this basket bag often. It will be great for warm weather! The Loewe basket bag also comes in a larger size if the mini is too small for what you are looking for this spring and/or summer in a straw tote bag. Both sizes are priced under $500; how often do you find an IT bag priced under $500? Not often! Love this!

You can also find the Loewe basket bag in yellow leather trim, and white leather trim. I love the medium tan trim since it is a classic color Loewe carries every year in this bag.

I hope you love the Loewe basket bag as much as I do!
