The Lucky Guide to SPRING BAGS!

Happy Tuesday! :)

Summer is just around the corner, so I think it's best we continue with Lucky magazine's Spring fashion guide...
next on our list: SPRING BAGS!!!

I think having the right bag is definitely important in completing an outfit -- if my bag doesn't look good with what I'm wearing, I have to change it, haha! ;)

Here is Lucky magazine's guide to Spring bags:

Ladylike satchels, fantastical clutches, colorful carryalls, and other totally thrilling ways to tote your stuff. (Warning: You'll want at least one from each page.)

1. TWO-HANDLED SATCHELS - Elegant but office-ready, they instantly make you look more pulled together.

2. WRISTLET CLUTCHES - On weekends, a cute pouch is really all you need while running around town.

3. LADYLIKE MINIS - Just holding one of these polite little bags makes us stand up straighter.

4. LIGHTWEIGHT KNAPSACKS - A hands-free option for busy afternoons and overnight escapes.

5. WHIMSICAL CLUTCHES - The most glamorous (and kookiest) conversation starters ever.

6. CHEERFUL TOTES - Sophisticated designs and leather details make these surprisingly refined.

I got a new two-handled satchel from Twisted Orchid (review and giveaway to come soon!), so I am good on that one. I have a wristlet clutch and a cheerful tote. I am not too crazy about the whimsical clutches, but I definitely want to get a ladylike mini bag. Oh, and a lightweight knapsack would be perfect for summer sleepovers and spending the day at Disneyland! ;)

Which of these Spring bags do you already have?
Which ones do you need/want to get?

  3. I'm not too crazy about knapsacks, but I love everything else. I'm a handbag hoarder. It's pretty crazy!
