Beachy-Life and Handbag Logistics!
Oooh, the Summer Handbag Logistics!
I've worked it out, but I am always eyeing "street solutions"!
I travel to the cottage with my "everyday" favorite which holds a house and more.
Once at the cottage: out come the selections. I'm very form follows function....... but the bag has to please and amuse the eye, and be a pleasure to feel and hold.
The vintage-y, almost-preppy flat-bottom straw basket gets tons of use for day-time errand shopping. It holds my sunglasses, thrown in keys and small wallet, lip balm, and my notepad and pen.
My minimal-design, smooth-straw, tiny wristlet gets play for fun nights out. Key here is that it does not need to hold my bulky sunglass case! The wrist strap can covert end-to end, like a normal bag. Bonus points here as the handle can be hooked to the bar chair or rail.
The favorite going-out bag, for when it must hold the sunglasses, goes to a sexy-ruched-shaped, soft black leather bag with a tassel trimmed small handle! It fits perfectly under my arm.
Birding and outdoor adventures? It ain't camo-covered, but my hot-pink backpack works!
I do admire the fancy going-out backpack solution........ but it just seems too sweaty for going-out clothes!
Hung on metal flower hooks, the cute handbags serve double duty decorating my bedroom walls!
