I don’t know what it is about this time of year…but something in the air just makes me antsy to buy a new bag. Maybe it’s the treat yo self mentality of the holidays and my natural affection for handbags, but the winter months just do it to me! Last year I bought my caramel Saint Laurent beauty, and this year I splurged on my Cardinal Red Hava satchel from Proenza Schouler. So in honor of my case of the bag gimme’s, I thought I’d do a round-up of the most covetable bags of 2018 thus far. Cue the drooling!

 

1. A more unique take on the box bag trend, this Mark cross comes in a variety of colors to go with that new Spring wardrobe, and it’s totally insta-worthy! I think this bag is very of the moment, but classic at the same time. You’ll have it for years to come.

 

2. The shape of this bag is so unique that it’s become the “it-girl” bag that you can spot from a mile away. With it’s cute size and versatile handles, you can wear this bag from day to night. I also love the crackled metallic color of this particular style, as it will wear well over time!

 

3. I think the box bag trend is here to stay for a while. AND, did it ever really go out of style to begin with? The shape is so classic and I love this one with it’s modern metallic texture.

 

4. Speaking of a great deal, this bucket bag from Zara capitalizes on the great shape, but also adds special details with the metallic studs on the straps. A little bit girly, yet a little bit rock and roll!

 

5. A small crossbody is a staple to any wardrobe. I love this pick from Prada, because its monochrome logo makes it subtle and unique at the same time!

 

6. The mixture of colors and textures on this bag is just so rich. Well, the pricetag is pretty hefty, but you can tell the quality and design is what you would come to expect from a designer like Marni!

 

7. I’ve been pining over a crocodile bag, but obviously don’t want the corresponding pricetag. This beauty from Zara is the most gorgeous shade of green (that would also be beautiful with pastels in the Spring), and is only $22! Score! Ordering this one now!

We all know that different trends come back around if enough time passes. One recent example of that is statement or embellished jeans! I remember being in middle school and springing for jeans with rhinestones, lace-up sides, or embroidery from my favorite stores like Limited Too and Express!
 
While my days of Limited Too and Skate Station parties are a thing of the past, embellished jeans are back in-style! I love this trend, because honestly…it’s easy! Pair it with a t-shirt and moto jacket, or simply a coordinating sweater. For my look, I threw on my new bedazzled Anthropologie jeans with a bright sweater that I purchased last year (also from Anthropologie). With fun statement jeans, it can make an old top look brand new again. Another thing I love, this trend can last year-round! My jeans pictured here are still on sale (in black) – but want to see my other favorites? Links are below!

Jewel Tones For Fall

jewel-tones-for-fall
 

Jewel tones are some of the most flattering colors on the rainbow spectrum. In deep, rich hues, the colors instantly inspire feelings of sophistication and luxury. They obviously become more popular in the Fall, as the previous seasons’ brights and pastels fade away with the Summer sun. Adding jewel tones can be an easy way to transition your wardrobe into the cooler weather – either with an accessory, coat, or shoe. Another thing I love about jewel tones is that you often find them paired with sumptuous fabrics – think silk and velvet. Overall, the deeper saturated colors look great on everyone and will keep your wardrobe on-trend. See below for some of my favorite picks in the season’s hottest shades.
