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.

  1. I adore the Rebecca Minkoff bag! I have a similar one but in brown color and it’s perfect for fall! I also like Ralph Lauren bags, they are absolutely amazing! Nice post!

  2. Hey Keira, great blog! I completely agree and Whistles IS great for bags. I’ve just started my own fashion blog and still quite new to it, so please have a look if you get a second!! Xx

  3. 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.

What do you think?
