Fanny Packs+ Should You Get One

Like most kids in the 90s I had a fanny pack. When this bag started popping up on celebrities a couple of years ago I was sure it was just a passing trend. But of course it is still here and I can’t really say if it will stay or go. Honestly, I really like the functionality of the bag. It keeps your hand free to do whatever and unlike a crossbody you don’t have to adjust it.

I love the look of having it slung over the chest instead of the traditional way of wearing one. I’m still nervous about the longevity of the trend so I’m interested in dropping a ton of money on one. So of course I found some really inexpensive ones, I even found a designer one that’s not too much if you want some designer in your bag collection.

What are your thoughts on the fanny pack trend? Will you be trying it?

Straw Bags+Trends I Love

There’s something about a straw bag that let’s everyone around you know that you are the fun laid back type of person. They’re effortless yet stylish and have somehow ended up on the chic runways during the fashion weeks.

It has finally warmed up and Spring is definitely here with Summer right around the corner. Now I’m piecing together outfits for future shoots. What I have noticed missing from my bag collection is a versatile straw bag.

You can wear it with a floral summer dress or a simple t-shirt and jeans.

I found some bags on the internet that are affordable and stylish.

This is the recent blogger favorite the Cult Gaia bamboo clutch bag. Okay, so this bag has been a hit among Instagram models and fashion bloggers. Made by an indie brand this bag is a big hit even for the most elite fashion crowds. It’s the more expensive bag on the list but it’s definitely making a name for itself by becoming a classic addition to your bag collection.

This is definitely a classic silhouette. The great thing about this bag is that it can go from the beach to a date night on a hot summer night. This bag is from one of my favorite places: Gap.

I’m not going to lie, I still want this bag. I originally found it on Amazon when I was searching for a bag for my upcoming vacation. I have since opted for my laser cut Summer Rose crossbody. I like this bag because it’s a backpack so it’s great for festival season.

Get Her Look+Meghan Markle

I hate to admit it but I’m that person that follows the royal weddings even though I’m American. But to my defense, the royal wedding coming up is kind of a big deal because Prince Harry is marrying the gorgeous American actress Meghan Markle. I’ll be honest I’ve never watched an episode of Suits in my life but I’m sure Meghan is great on it. I will say that I love her style. It’s clean, chic, and minimal.

 

Before the Royal wedding on May 19th ( my 26th birthday by the way) I wanted to give you all a guide on how to get her style. So I chose some pieces that you all could buy to recreate one of her looks from the royal tour her and Prince Harry have been on. This particular look is from their stop in Northern Ireland. I love this outfit for two reasons. The first reason is that there’s not a lot going on but it looks well put together. The second reason is that the green from her skirt really makes this pop. This would be a great outfit for spring. If it was actually Spring here in Ohio.

I’ll keep this post short and sweet and of course, I’ll include links to all of the items. ENJOY!

Gennhaio+Review

I have a really exciting review for you all! A couple of weeks ago an awesome Etsy shop sent me the coolest items. The shop is called Gennhaio and honestly I’m completely obsessed. Everything is priced perfectly and everything is made out of vegan leather. There’s a variety of pouches, travel bags, handbags, and even key fobs. I was sent out a lovely pouch and and the cutest key fob! Also the packaging was amazing!

I can’t wait to start using the pouch especially for the spring. I think it’s the perfect time to use something like this in such a fresh color. My favorite part about it is the shape. It’s so different from anything I have now. I’m actually thinking about using it as a clutch for an upcoming vacation with Cory. But it would also be great for traveling.

Definitely check out Gennhaio to treat yourself to some goodies.

The key fob is so cute and I actually really needed one. I love how unique the designs

Chanel Classic Flap Bag+Goals

Everyone has that one thing that they’re saving for and dream about, I mean seriously dream about. That one thing for me is a Chanel classic lambskin flap bag with gold hardware of course (medium sized).

I haven’t kept it a secret that I have a love for bags. But this is the ultimate bag that I want. I remember being about ten years old and falling for this classic beauty. Now at twenty-five I’m still waiting until the day I can have one of my own.

Yes, they’re pricey but I see them as a fashion investment. To be honest I shock myself when I realize that I’ve wanted this bag for so long.

Every year the price goes up higher and I feel as though my chance to own one is slipping away from me but then a little voice tells me that I still have a chance. I still can have something nice.

I feel like most kids who grow up poor always had that one thing that they wanted more than anything. For me it was this bag. I knew if I owned this bag that I really wanted meant that I was doing what I loved and working hard at it. Maybe this all sounds shallow or superficial but I don’t believe people don’t have a dream. Even if it’s a dream to own a bag.

What item have you always wanted?

Bags I Love+Mansur Gavriel Calf Mini Sun Bag

I haven’t done a “Bags I Love” post since last year. My love for handbags hasn’t stopped obviously, I just didn’t realize how much you all enjoyed it. So here’s a new “Bags I Love” post. This time showcasing the Mansur Gavriel Calf Mini Sun bag.

I’m in love with these three colors. Blush, Blu, and Rosa. Mansur Gavriel has been around since 2012 so it’s still a new brand. This doesn’t mean celebrities and bag lovers haven’t been loving this minimalistic brand.

I love this bag design because of how simple it is but it looks like a classic piece that it will last a lifetime. My favorite part of it is the small detail of the bow. It adds a small detail.

This bag comes in a bit over a thousand dollars so it’s definitely an investment piece if you can afford it.

What are your thoughts about this bag? What bag are you loving right now?

Bags I Love+Saturday Style

I’ll just be completely honest and tell you what’s been going on. My family and I have recently moved into our own home after living in a domestic violence shelter for almost five months. That explains the lack of posts on here. My depression and OCD have also been an unfortunate factor. 
However I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. I want this blog to really be my current loves. If you’ve been following me for awhile you will know that I love handbags. If I could have any accessory I would always choose handbags.

When I think of designer bags Versace doesn’t typically come to mind but ever since last year and I saw Gigi Hadid carry is gorgeous creation I can’t help but be in love with the brand again. The Versace Palazzo satchel is perfection

Everything about this bag is incredible. From the butter soft leather to the black hardware I would love.to own this beauty. Obviously this is out of my budget right now but a girl can dream right?

The strap is a plus because I have to use both hands to push my wheelchair I need something handsfree. Even if you don’t have a disability this bag will also be helpful with the strap.
