5 hot handbags for Spring 2014

Handbags can be the perfect way to try the latest trends, even if you're commitment-phobic. They can easily update and modernize a look without totally stealing the scene, and they are a piece of affordable luxury that can brighten a long, cold winter. Spring 2014 showed off a ton of awesome bags including these 5 trends that combine fun styles, textures and shapes. 1. Active lifestyle totes - As Lululemon continues to trend, handbags for 2014 take inspiration from activewear. This can be a great thing for ladies who want to tote gym gear around, or just look comfy and elegant. Lanvin's functional strappy leather bag riffed on this idea to wide acclaim at NYFW. 2. Oversized totes - As handbags have gotten smaller and smaller, women have had to pare down their purse contents. Luckily, the oversized tote is in for 2014. Standouts from NYFW 2014 include an oversized croc gym bag from Bottega Veneta and a square-edged duffel from Alexander Wang in pale pink or white. 3. Backpacks - Love them or hate them, backpacks are back for S/S 14. These aren't canvas rucksacks; think leather, suede and textures. Backpacks are a wonderful way to tie in the menswear/androgyny trend in the fashion world. Look for a durable leather satchel with masculine details like buckles and straps, like those from Frye. For a streetwise take on the backpack trend, take inspiration from Chanel's graffiti tote, which debuted at NYFW. 4. Classic white totes - Creamy white leather handbags were in for S/S 2014, with runway standouts from Victoria Beckham and Steven Alan. Sure, white can be tricky because it will really show any speck of dirt. However, these handbags are just perfect for the first warm, pretty days of spring and work well anytime you need a little bit of classic elegance in your look. 5. Statement sheaths - Not everything to hit the runway at NYFW was big and bulky. If you preferred a slimmed down handbag, draw your inspiration from the range of styling statement sheaths carried on the runway. Standouts included the mustard schoolgirl clutch from Alexander Wang, the emerald beaded number from Alice + Olivia and the tortoiseshell hard-sided clutch from J. Crew. What do you think: Did you catch any of the clutches and handbags on display at Fashion Week 2014? If so what were your faves?

I've always been a fan of backpacks so that makes me happy for the season!
I totally love the idea of a classic white totes, with this in mind I canโ€™t wait for the weather to cool down a little bit and hopefully the classic white will go fine with the autumn weather here : )

Unusual Things You Should Carry In Your Purse
We all have the usual things floating around in our bags. Tissues, wallet, glasses, phone chargers, the stray pills that probably get rid of head aches but who cares, gum. Heres a list of a few more unusual things you should pack away because they can always come in handy someday. A flash light Not the typical purse item but will come in very handy in extreme situations or in simple situations when you drop your phone under the seat at nighttime and don't have anyone in your car to call in for you. Tampons There is no worse feeling then getting your period and not having a tampon. Honestly life just feels a bit hopeless at times like that. Honestly this isn't really unusual but more of a necessity. Cork screw Open wine whenever and wherever you need! The situation of having a nice bottle of wine and no way to open it comes up a lot more often then you would think. Also you can get a cork screw that also has a bottle opener. Some of them even have a knife which could also come in handy, although it is a little small. Pen and paper I know that sounds so stupid since everyone has an iPhone now and I may be alone in the thought that phones can not be trusted but having a little notebook and pen is always good. You can use it for anything. A book! Face it, unless were going out, in which case we would have a clutch, we all pretty much have huge bags. A soft cover book can easily fit. The hard cover book to war and peace maybe not the greatest idea. Flip flops. Especially if you are a working girl its always nice to be able to take off the heels or cute but to ally painful flats and rock flip flops going home. Your feet will thank you and the Old Navy flops are super cheap so you can get all the colors. The Pill Bottle Survival Kit This is really cool! Someone realized that you can most essential survival things into a tiny pill bottle. Totally portable and unique! In the lithe pill bottle you will have: - 3 mini straw fire starters, 3 matches, 1 bandage, 1 striker, 1 hook,1 weight, tinfoil,some fishing line, razor blade,2 safety pins, 3 feet of duct tape, 2 advils, 1 birthday candle ,whistle made from straw ,Neosporin in a straw ,salt in a straw. I have linked the actual site that should each piece right here! Pill Bottle Survival Kit Hair ties. You would be surprised how annoying it is when you have a whole bag full of stuff but nothing to use if your hair tie breaks. Just buy a pack of hair ties for your bag and you will always be prepared. Pepper Spray Although I would not be surprised if most of you already have that tucked away. Walking around at night is unfortunately no joke for women.
