Mansur Gavriel changed the everyday carryall game with their super chic leather bucket bag in 2013. The trend is still going strong, and while a Mansur Gavriel will set you back about $600, you can score any of these options for way less. I stuck with mostly nudes and cognacs that can take you through every season, but threw in a couple rich autumn hues if you want to add a pop of color to your basics this fall.
As I get older and my style gets less fussy, I’m really into the idea of investment statement pieces that get a lot of everyday mileage: a great leather handbag, simple stud earrings, delicate gold necklaces; little details that speak to your style and live with you for years.
Like a really good watch.
JORD contacted me recently about their line of eco-friendly wood watches and kindly offered to send one. I thought the maple Ely series would be a good fit for me: the compact design wouldn’t overpower my wrist, the neutral color would go with just about everything, and the scratch-proof face just might survive the flower shop.
When the watch arrived a few days later, it was love at first sight. It’s incredibly lightweight, making it super comfortable for everyday wear, and the maple finish is really beautiful. It’s a modern take on a classic style, and I’ve worn it every day since.
‘Tis the season for go-everywhere bags that carry all your essentials from work to errands, the pool, weekend BBQs, summer classes, the beach… you see where I’m going here? Ain’t nobody got time for changing handbags, because it’s going to be fall before we know it and, dammit, we’re making the most of these carefree, ice-cream-binging, sunshiny months.
From neutral canvases to bold prints and perforated leather, I can’t get enough of these carry-all totes that work just as well with a sundress and sandals as they do with a swimsuit and coverup.
