Over the past year or so, I have significantly reduced the number of handbags in my closet. I realized I was holding on to a bunch of bags even though I rarely, if ever, reached for them. While paring down my collection, I kept coming back to a handful of absolute favorites. These are the bags I find myself reaching for the absolute most.
HANDBAGS I USE THE MOST
This black tote is such a favorite that I have even gifted it numerous times to friends and family! It keeps its structure and fits a lot without being oversized.
One of the most versatile bags I own, I find myself reaching for this all the time. From running errands to traveling, it’s a must-have!
Of all the bags I own, I use this one the most frequently. I just….. love it. It’s incredibly versatile and fits quite a lot (including a book or umbrella!).
I linked to a similar bag. Honestly, the one I carry was actually a gift bag at a bridal shower a few years ago! I loved it so much, I kept it to use as a handbag.
I love this little bag. She is tiny, but mighty!
Of every bag on the list, this is the one that the most people stop to ask me about. It’s just different enough to be eye-catching, but still neutral so it can go with just about everything. I almost always use it as a crossbody, but the straps detach and you can carry it from the handle too. Oh, and don’t let the size fool you– it’s roomy enough inside for all the essentials.
I have a couple of J. McLaughlin wicker bags that I love! The two styles I carry the most are no longer available, but had to include this circle one on the list because they really do a great job with the wicker designs.
