Stylish Handbags for Every Woman Everyday

I am a bit of a fashionista. Every night before I get ready for bed, I have a routine: I check the next day’s forecast, pack my lunch and make sure I have my “work” purse ready to go. As a woman in the working world, I have a lot going on in my life – school, work, family/friends and volunteering – and I don’t want to worry about the quality of the handbag I am carrying. I own dozens of handbags: from Dooney & Bourke wristlets to a Vera Bradley large black microfiber diaper bag (which works quite well as a school bag!) but I always end up using the same bags day after day. Here is just a glimpse of my favorite handbags for every occasion!

Zippy Bucket with Shoulder Strap in ChiliMy current everyday handbag is from Tano Leather, the  Zippy Bucket with Shoulder Strap in Chili. Now some might think this purse is “loud,” but I think it has personality. The Zippy Bucket is a rather large bag but it holds all of my stuff and then some. One perk is that I can wear it on my shoulder to hold my belongings close or I can use the longer strap to make it a crossbody bag. And I LOVE the extra zippers on the outside of the bag where I stash my phone, gum and Kleenex. (I know I can fit more in there, but I don’t have enough to bring with me!)

There are days when I don’t want to carry a big bag – usually after a long Baggallini Uptown Bagg Crinkle Nylon weekend or during a busy week. That is when I reach for one of my Ameribag or Baggalini handbags. With the Baggallini Everyday Bagg, the name says it all. Comprised of three different sized compartments for everything you might need, this bag is lightweight (just 10 ounces) and comes in fun colors to suit any personality. The strap is also adjustable to be worn as a shoulder bag or acrossAmeribag Healthy Back Bag Microfiber Extra Small Midnight Blue the body on days you have a million things to carry and don’t want to be bothered by straps falling. My Ameribag is very similar, but I love that I can wear it as a backpack – not necessarily a purse. They come in extra small, small, medium and even as a baby bag. Plus – the variety of colors makes me want to carry a different piece everyday.

Every so often there are days, I just want to make a statement with my handbag. On those days, I carry a Dooney & Bourke purse. Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Satchel Natural My first purchase was a signature barrel bag – a simple and classic piece, but designed to last me a very long time (and it has!) In the time since I have acquired a few more pieces and lusted over many others; but working with handbags everyday (and not buying them) has NOT been easy. The current favorite collection around our office is the Florentine. With multiple styles for every personality and richly colored leather, this is the perfect handbag to own. Whether you are like me and own many handbags or prefer to stick with a few classic pieces, you are sure to find a style or brand you love here at Irv’s Luggage!
