Now that fall is here, it is time decide which bag you’ll be carrying this season. You’re going to want something that is classic, versatile, and can go from day to night. The number one bag of my dreams is Chloe’s saddlebag. Unfortunately, I can never quite pull the trigger due to its high price tag. When I started my fall handbag research, the first place I visited was Gigi New York. Known for their high-quality leather goods, I have become a huge fan of their simplistic and classic designs. I was very excited to see that a part of their FW collection is a Saddle Bag called the Jenni. One reason why I am drawn to the Jenni is because it reminds me of the Chloe collection.   Thanks to Gigi New York, I can have the look I love without breaking the bank nor compromising quality and style. The Jenni Saddle Bag comes in several timeless hues that are perfect from autumn. I can’t quite decide which one I want. Should I go for a rich cognac or navy, or a lighter option like stone or grey? Whichever I pick, I know that this bag will be a part of my wardrobe for many years.   Do you have a favorite bag style? I have been a slave to the clutch and tote but I think this style might be my new go-to bag. It fits all of my necessary items and is fabulously chic, and perfect for fall!

 

Let’s Go Shopping

I need your guys help!  I have started a very important search for the perfect cognac handbag.  Now this bag needs to be big enough for my crazy life but, at the same time, be chic, classic, and on trend.  Why cognac?  Firstly, I seem to buy only black handbags, so I need to get out of my rut.  Secondly, cognac is a very versatile color but stands out while your typical black bag blends in.  I used to think that wearing black shoes and clothes meant you had to wear a black handbag.  I know better now and, I have to say, I love how a cognac bag elevates an outfit.  I invest in a bag a season, so I decided that it is time to pick my new bag, and I am determined that will be of the cognac variety.  So, help a girl out!  Which bag should I get?

Casual Weekend Style

One thing that I struggle with on the weekends is putting together the perfect casual outfit.  I am always more confident when I am wearing a skirt or a dress, but I feel the pressure of having to tone it down and relax on my days off.  I find it difficult to come up with a casual style that won’t make me feel sloppy.  From running errands, to brunch, to watching football with friends, it’s important for me to look stylish while still taking it easy.  I also factor in the weather.  The leaves may be changing, but humid temperatures are annoyingly sticking around.  I want to wear boots, sweaters, and scarves, not shorts and sundresses.   One helpful way of getting prepared for dealing with this confusing weather is to use the weekend to come up with stylish layering options.  For this Weekend Style Guide, I have put together an ensemble that I think is the answer to my prayers.  It may look simple, but often times, the simplest outfits are the hardest to create!  What do you like to wear on the weekend?

Zara’s City Bag: The It Bag for Fall

The Fall Must-Have: Zara's City Bag The Fall It Handbag: Zara's City BagThe Fall It Handbag: Zara's City BagThe Fall It Handbag: Zara's City Bag

If you’re going to carry one handbag this season, make sure it is the City Bag from Zara’s Autumn ’14 collection.  Zara has designed a vintage inspired handbag with ladylike appeal.  This top-handled satchel has all you need for looking sophisticated and polished while carrying around your daily essentials.  When shopping for a fall bag, I want structure, space, and simplicity.  It is there to complement my wardrobe, not dominate it.  The more layers we put on for fall, the more we carry around with us.  That is why we need a bag that not only holds your daily needs, but also looks chic while doing it.  Zara knows that this satchel is a popular item because they have released it in a wealth of fall-hued colors. From vibrant shades such as yellow and orange to classic nude and navy, there is a color for everyone.   I believe the reason why I am drawn to the City Bag collection is that it’s reminiscent of the Louis Vuitton’s Alma handbag I have been coveting for ages!  But thanks to Zara,  I can now have this style I am so strongly attracted to for a much more realistic price.
