Handbag Essentials for Spring/Summer 2013

The activities of summer call for handbags in all shapes, sizes, and colors.  Check out five essential styles below and remain current with your bag of choice.

  • The Work Bag – Long, sunny days are approaching – but sadly, you’ll still find yourself indoors at the office. Combat your day job blues with a classic structured companion to transport all of your workday essentials while sitting pretty on your desk.

  • The Beach Bag – Summer afternoons are meant to be spent at the beach!  Be sure to invest in a bag with room for all of your sunning needs (and perhaps some giant hoops to hang your beach towel on).

  • The Afternoon Out Bag– Select the perfect companion to your afternoon out whether it be shopping, lunching, or scanning your city for the latest seasonal events.  Try something mid-size  large enough for the day’s essentials but small enough to not weigh you down.
