Seeking: The Perfect Leather Bag For The Season

Hobo Blaze Convertible Leather Bag in Mushroom
{ Hobo ‘Blaze’ – $188 }

Handbags are a big part of my grownup ‘fewer better things’ philosophy. Instead of stuffing my closet with trendy inexpensive purses, I treat myself to two nice leather bags each year: one at the start of spring, and another when fall comes around.

This season, I’m searching for an everyday carryall in a rich neutral color or sleek black. This Hobo ‘Blaze’ converts from a shoulder bag to a backpack, so it’s the best of both worlds, with a tassel! I just wish it was a smidge bigger so it would fit my laptop, planner, and all the other stuff I schlep to-and-from the flower shop.

These oversized totes and carryalls top my favorites list. And I couldn’t resist throwing in a ladylike backpack.

    I, too, am beginning to embrace a quality over quantity philosophy regarding purses and have found that what the purse will hold on the inside is more important than how it looks on the outside. I like the Rebecca Minkoff best.

    Nice, classy looking bags. As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to appreciate the benefits of having just a few expensive bags instead of a ton of cheap trendy ones.

      I love the color of that one, too! I don’t have anything green in my closet, but it’s such a great neutral for fall.

    I would go for the Cuyana Small Carryall if I was in your place!
