The portable trapese

In the handbag world, there's nothing better than finding a stunning leather bag in a staple hue. Yep, we welcome camel, deep brown and black any day of the week... and love when they come with clean lines and that sweet leather smell. Today's purseday pick is a classic style by Celine that we're thinking might be worth the splurge!


Icing on the cake

In my humble opinion, Valentino is brilliant in the handbag department. With beautiful shapes, tasteful embellishments and colors on trend, I'm constantly fascinated, though {strangely} rarely compelled to actually add one to my wish list. Prime example would be these perfectly detailed leather beauties, that make my heart leap with the delicate ramage pattern on both sides. It sort of reminds me of icing on a cake...


Impressive, isn't it? Would you add one of these to your wish list?

Soft & feminine metallics

Metallics have become our favorite neutral. By now, you've probably gathered that we have a healthy fixation with gold, but we've developed a HUGE crush on gold's super hip, feminine sister, Rose. It's EVERYWHERE...

Do you love it as much as we do?! Well today's purseday pick is a rose gold beauty from designer, Vince Camuto. There is so much to adore about this bag... the pleats, the gold hardware, the cross-body style...


What do you think?

A beaded beauty

The Mr. and I have been surrounded by warm air and white sand for a few days now and  I'm loving the laid back look of tropical style. This beaded clutch caught my eye awhile ago and would be the perfect way to accessorize an outfit- casual or formal! Isn't this pattern so fun?!


Sadly I'm not rocking this exact purse, however it's been fun pulling out some of my beachy & warm weather handbags to sport while honeymooning! Happy Purseday!

Feathers + gemstones

Today, my man and I are hopping on a plane and heading to Seattle for the beginning of our wedding weekend! I can hardly believe the day is already here!! Obviously I have all things wedding on the mind right now, so today's Purseday pick is this beautiful ostrich feather bridal clutch that I wish I would have found months ago... Isn't it heavenly?!


Prayers for safe travels... and sanity are appreciated! ;) See you tomorrow for some fun weekend inspiration!

Hiding out

Long ago I fell in love with C.Wonder's classic nylon tote... it's such a practical purchase, between being durable, versatile & fashionable! Though I tend to gravitate toward solids {especially for handbags} I usually love the seasonal prints for this bag. This seasons print however, is an earthy camo with a complimentary "hunting" orange. I have mixed emotions... for a multi-season bag, I vote no... however for fall, it's kind of cute?! What do you think? Please weigh in!

A tasseled beauty

When it comes to purses, I typically gravitate toward ones that are versatile and timeless. In my world form = function... but sometimes you just need a statement piece. I was totally thrown off when this Jimmy Choo tasseled beauty caught my eye. Completely out of my style range, but there is something so stunning about it! Perhaps it's the glittery pairing of guava colored threads + gold chain detailing?  What do you think??


Fail proof fall fashion

The time is near my friends... yes, fall is on our radar! Oh goodness, how did summer fly by so quickly? As much as we hate to part with sunny days, beach runs and the need for ice cream to keep cool, this fall has so many fun things in store!! Admittedly, I've been shopping a tad more than usual these days {can't blame a girl for wanting some cute clothes for the honeymoon!} and have fallen in love with some of the new collections that are anticipating the change of seasons. Aren't these bags from Banana Republic to die for?! Which would you choose?

1- Bettina Satchel

2- Flavia Foldover Clutch

3- Evan Convertible Crossbody

Market style

Hitting up the farmers market is sadly a rarity in our busy schedules these days, though it's something I miss dearly! There is something so peaceful about perusing the different booths, looking at colorful fresh fruits and veggies displayed under the sun... ah! So fun! Today's purseday is from West Elm of all places, but we're just adoring these bags that are clever and cute for a run to the market!


Pippa purseday

One of my dear friends is a huge fan of the Royal Family and ever since the wedding of Price William and Kate, she's adored Pippa Middleton... along with the rest of the world. :) Just the other day said friend was mentioning the ever popular Pippa Purse by Modalu {have you seen this?!} and I was instantly intrigued the moment I laid eyes on it:

Gorgeous, isn't it? If this color scheme isn't for you, the Pippa purse comes in a range of colors and even different types of pretty leather. Happy purseday!!
