Smarter Style: Purse Envy

I can look all around any store, but I am always drawn to one area...the bag area. Yup, I dig purses. Totes, clutches, shoulder bags. I like them. Probably because most of my wardrobe is pretty neutral, I find that the accessories are so important in pulling together a look...and what I use to tote around my laptop, snacks, Purel, epi pens and everything else is part of that. I usually opt for bigger purses - totes, hobos, and so on, just because I do haul around a lot (remember, I don't have a car to toss stuff in). So, always on the lookout, I spotted these new lovelies...

This tote I spotted on is kinda perfect for spring. I usually don t-shirt and jeans, so the snakeskin bottom will bump my chic factor up a notch or two...and the ivory leather top is summery and cool.

A light tan can go with anything and not look as "heavy" as a black tote. From, I like how the sides can be tucked in on the Neiman Marcus brand tote, yet it still can hold a ton of stuff.

When I don't have to lug around 17 pounds of Life Stuff, the larger clutch/crossbody is perfect. I'm digging this navy blue-ish one from Amazon. It is large enough to hold a phone and some other stuff, but not too big for a night out.

What kind of purse do you have (take a pic!)? Do you need a new one....what are you eyeing?

I love purses! My favorite is one that my friend gave me last year from Brooklyn Industries... It is purple with moths printed on it.

This is what I am currently carrying.... got it at TJMaxx last fall

Large enough to carry my wallet, my business wallet, my Kindle Fire, a small appointment book, a small make-up bag (w/lotion, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, lip stick), a second small make-up bag (this one w/pens, pencils, etc...), my cell phone, my coupon carrier (when I go grocery shopping), business cards.  I think that is about it....  Maybe the occasional toy too.

I am thinking I would like something either hot pink or lime green this summer for something fun. I like this one... but I don't exclusively wear gold, and I am just OCD enough that it might bug me.

                  Or this one.... But, again, I am hesitant to carry a patterned purse, but I do like the color.  I typically carry a solid purse, but then coordinate my "inside bags" - wallets, makeup bags, etc to match the purse.  Is that too much??

 I like the look of them, but I usually casrry a small purse. If I have a larger one I just fill it up and then it's so heavy and cumbersome. lol
