Hi friends! I have been wanting to share some of my favorite designer bags with you for quite some time and finally got around to reviewing three of them. I am a purse girl through and through, but I totally understand that purchasing a designer bag is a big deal and it needs to be treated as such. I scour the internet reading reviews before purchase, but I find that my most coveted pieces in my closet are the designer bags that I have saved up for and finally had the feeling of pure joy walking into the store and purchasing them.
I personally believe that one neutral designer bag can elevate your whole wardrobe and so I typically wear more affordable clothes paired with a more expensive handbag. I feel that I get a ton more wear out of my bags than I ever will my clothes (minus denim) and because of this, it is the area of my wardrobe in which I invest the most heavily. But if you prefer your money in your bank account, I get that as well and linked some amazing and more moderately-priced alternatives and dupes. I will also share with you the best times to purchase a designer bag so you never have to pay more than you should.
I took a couple days off of social media to celebrate the Fourth of July with friends this weekend, but I am getting back on schedule now and ready to share this beachy look with y’all! I am a sucker for a good coverup, especially one like this that can be worn three different ways. I live around Lake Norman near Charlotte, NC and we try to get out on the lake as much as possible throughout the summer. We’ll go from the water into a restaurant and it is so easy to throw on a sarong like this to look pulled together in a snap. Did I mention it’s only $23?! Y’all, it’s a no brainer!
I feel like this is happening more often… I snap photos of a look I am so excited to share with y’all (and that is under $30!) and by the time I post it, it’s sold out! I’m so sorry about that you guys! But when I went to look for similar alternatives, I wound up loving those even more! Especially this TopShop one 🙂 There is even a bikini with this print and it is literal off-the-shoulder perfection: top and bottom.
I need a plan for this in the future… tweeting the links? Snapping the looks? Both? I am also toying with the idea of really using my Snapchat (finally!) to share a little more about myself. Flipping the camera around on myself makes me a little nervous, but follow along with all the awkwardness @CortDryden!
