Okay, please try not to laugh when I say this…but when I was a little girl, my mother always used to say that there are three things a woman “MUST” have: 1) An expensive pair of shoes, 2) Pretty underwear and 3) An investment handbag. It’s #2 that has always cracked me up, but I totally understand now what my mother meant when she imparted that knowledge onto me as a child. When it comes to #3, well that should just be common knowledge if you’re a woman. A great bag is an absolutely MUST HAVE, and it’s more than okay to invest in one that is sure to last for years and years. With warm weather days now in full gear, it’s all about cute summer satchels!
Thanks to the amazing team at Henri Bendel, I am now the proud owner of a summer satchel that I’ll be carrying literally everywhere I go this summer. The West 57th Blocked Satchel is not only gorgeous, but it’s totally versatile as well which you know I’m ALL about. You can either carry it by the handles OR by the strap as a shoulder bag or cross-body and it’s made from tough Saffiano leather to ensure durability. For today’s look, you’ll see that I styled it in a summer look that can easily qualify for a vacation at a beach resort or even a cruise. I even pulled out my new wooden aviators from Silvano Apparel to add an extra touch of class (more on these in another post). Later on this week, I’ve styled the satchel in a cute Boho Chic look. The colors of the satchel are neutral, which is great because you can play with so many different colors when it comes to styling. Oh! And don’t let me forget to mention that it comes with a matching wallet! I can’t believe I almost left that out! I’ve been getting TONS of compliments on it…my boss even told me that he like it which completely threw me off since he’s anti-fashion. LOL!
Here’s my look:

I LOVE how the bag just stands out so nicely against the navy blue and white of my dress! When it comes to summer satchels, this one is definitely my all time favorite now which is saying a lot since I’m very picky about my handbags.
So which summer satchels do you have your eye on for the summer?
