It’s true, I come with a lot of baggage. Mostly in the form of gum wrappers, lip gloss and receipts from last year. Having a trusty handbag to hold all of those precious belongings [also read, trash] is crucial. Like every one of you, I can’t leave home without a handbag attached to my side. And by attached to my side I mean strapped over my shoulder or arm [details]. I am not a huge swapper out of purses often, however, I do like to have a different bag for different events and purpose – mostly between travel, everyday use, office use, date nights and fancy events and long days out and about. I always turn to Sole Society for reasonably priced, cute and durable bags. I got hooked on Sole Society a year or two ago when I picked up my first travel weekender bag. I have since added several more to my collection [they are seriously the best for either carry on bags or weekends away!] With their new arrivals out, I thought it would be fun to highlight my top 5 bags for every life situation, the best part – they are all under $100 and waiting for you to grab ahold and go!
ps. Before we get started – ALL of the bags featured below have an inside zipper pouch and two individual compartments to hold things like a phone and keys! Your life just got so much more organized…
First up, for everyday use, the Vegan Zippered Satchel. The outside zipper detail gives this bag the perfect amount of pizazz and the size is absolutely perfect for holding just enough but not large enough to be overbearing. Available in 3 great classic colors and less than $70, this bag is oh so suitable for all of your everyday uses. Bonus – it does come with a strap that can be used for a crossbody purpose!
2. Next up, for all of your winter travels – the Vegan Woven Weekender.This bag is all sorts of heart eyes. I am in love with the woven detail as it looks so classy and sharp while on the go. This bag holds a heck of a lot making your travel days and weekends away a breeze. I recently took this to Chicago and was able to fit several outfits, toiletries and two pairs of shoes inside! A shoulder strap is also included to make things even easier as you run through the airport to catch your flight to better yet, to Chipotle for flying fuel.
3. Now for those date nights, fancy little parties and more – the Crinkle Foldover Clutch.What’re the holidays and new year without a sparkly gold clutch to get you through? I think we all need a little glitz and glam every now and again. Biggest pet peeve? When a clutch is so teeny tiny it hardly holds a penny. I like them with enough space to hold my phone, cash, credit cards, lip gloss, gum all of the important stuff. Added bonus? It doesn’t get glitter all over you and cause people to really question where you actually went last night 😉
4. For those days at the office, this Vegan Tote.Finding a handbag that can hold your laptop and planner without looking too business-y can be tough. In fact, I was starting to wonder if such a thing even existed – and then this beauty showed up in my life. It is perfect for coming and going from the office with a stop at your local coffee shop or the bar for after work drinks. Working women, you want this in your life. All of your success in 2018 is waiting…
5. And last but not least, the bag that saves your arms and hands from it all on those busy days on the go, the Vegan Flapover Crossbody.There is nothing I love more than a great crossbody bag. The freedom that they give you is similar to the feeling that I get when I drop the dogs off at the groomer for four hours. It’s really like I want to run around in circles and eat ice cream just because I can. This crossbody bag looks so rich to me, yet is less than $60 and again – the perfect size! Fun fact – that outside zipper pouch could hold some things if you’d like. Remember those gum wrappers I mentioned earlier? Perfect hiding spot.
