Toned Down, but Still Turned Up!

When it comes to bags, I tend to gravitate toward bold, bright colors, but as we start transitioning from summer to fall, I'm turning my thoughts to bags that reflect a more neutral color palette. I've also begun to realize that neutrals can create just as much impact as colors and are perhaps more versatile than their bolder colored brethren. (I've noticed that I am starting to think more practically than I did in the past about my wardrobe options!)

In addition to being drawn to toned down neutrals, I am also loving a few styles of bags that seem to be all the rage right now. The first type of bag that I am obsessed with is the circle bag, which is so clean and modern in its design that I wonder why this style is just now becoming popular. Secondly, I am obsessed with the camera bag style. I have bag number 5, the Rebecca Minkoff Sofia Cross Body, in a slightly different colorway and it has turned out to be one of my all time favorite bags. Last of all, there's the classic tote, because, well, it's a classic! The totes I selected below, however, all have a cross body strap, which makes them very practical too. (See, there's that practical thinking thing again!) Below you will see a section of my favorite new bags in a variety of practical colors and styles. The only problem is choosing which one to get. But then the impractical side of me says to just get them all!


  1. Although I tend to be a "use the same bag every day" type of gal (so boring, I know!) I have been itching to get another one, especially one that I can use on weekends when I don't need my big tote I take to work every day. Love your picks--I think I need that Rebecca Minkoff one too!

  2. I tend be buy bags in neutral colors, so I am loving all of your picks! That Rebecca Minkoff bag is too cute!

  3. Number 5 is just a cutie!! Even though I am a color person, most of my bags are nude or black, but I'm always trying to find some in bright colors
    Thank you for linking up with weekend wear,


  4. Great round up of bags. I love the last 3, especially the leopard print one. Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week.


  5. Great choices! My faves are numbers 4 and 8!
