All About the Bags

springbags

BAGS BAGS BAGS! I will admit, I have a slight obsession with bags. Anything from a clutch to a big weekender- I love them all! Right now I am totally in love with over the top statement bags. All of these bags are great pieces that will really stand out. Wear them with a simple black outfit or go all out and mix your patterns!

Another way to take a plain bag and make it a statement bad is to add some accessories. Whether you are putting on leather stickers (SOOO in love) or tying on a scarf, throwing a little something extra on your bag will really make it a unique stand out piece. I am all for adding several different accessories that pair well together to really push your bag to a new level of chic. What are your favorite ways to amp up the look of your bags?

For this weeks The Staple, we are focusing on all cool cross body bags! I’m a bag kinda girl, big time!, so I try to have an array of different style bags for my collection. It’s the one thing that I really do obsess over and try to save up money for. I usually lean towards big bags to dump my whole life in them, but I have about 5 great cross body bags that always save me when I want to be on the-go! Cross body bags are my ideal kinda bag because if you’re a busy girl like me, always running around, carrying a bunch of things, traveling, then you need a hands-free bag to help facilitate your day. Crossbody bags are perfect for that!

I try to always get neutral colors so that it’s more versatile so I stick to black, brown, cream and salmon colors! Find your perfect cross body bag and have fun shopping hands-free of a bag!

This week I’m all about the color RED, more specifically CHERRY red. The bright bold color is one that definitely demands attention. It’s sexy. It’s powerful. It’s fun and it even makes you feel confident.

It’s a color that you have to kinda be in the mood for, but once you have it on, you’d wish you’d wear more often. We all need to wear more red… at least I do!

Above are some cool picks from clothes, accessories to shoes and wallets in cherry red. It’s the perfect color to wear year round! Below you’ll see two looks styled for two different occasions wearing the same color. Hope you find some inspiration for this weekend and wear cherry red! x

OUT SHOPPING: You want to be stylish while not jeopardizing comfort when you’re shopping. Pair your favorite Levi’s shorts with a dressier red blouse and cool sneakers to help you last longer walking. Add a pop of leopard for a fun touch! Wear your hair in a pony, add some big round sunnies and pretty star earrings for the off-duty-chic look!

GALLERY OPENING: This is a cool event with fun and creative people all around you, so you want to make sure you stand out from the rest. A cherry red dress will definitely make you stand out! So, slip on your nicest silky dress and try to pair it with a leather moto jacket for that effortless look. Since you are standing around quite a lot checking out the art, I suggest throwing on a pair of fancy flats to keep you going all night, plus it looks unique!
