Let’s hear it for hump day! Three days into the week and I’m already worn out and looking for the weekend! Anyone with me?! School’s out doesn’t mean any shortage of work for mom! Ha! Who knew going from one to two kids could take so much energy?! In some ways, it’s easier because you have experience on your side and feel more confident in your mothering abilities, but on the other hand . . . there’s two of them! A mama alone at home is outnumbered! I can’t complain, or maybe I just did! Oops! But I know you get it!
But, on the fun side of things is still this blog and a collaboration with Nordstrom where they asked me to share my favorite handbags (under $200) with you. Um, okay! I have lots of those!! And the ones I’m wearing in today’s post are all actually under $50!
You’ve heard me rave about this faux leather reversible tote for a couple years now. I’m especially fond of my tan/aqua one since it was a Christmas gift from my parents. These are great because they’re like goldilocks, not too big and not too small, and incredibly durable and sturdy. The only downside would be there’s only one small zipper compartment, and no dividers, so you’ll need pouches to corral your small things.
These are my old Hinge military shorts and they have a cotton blend cargo version that looks similar, minus the side zippers. I’ve lived in these shorts the past two summers so I’m glad I can wear them again.
But since it’s only the beginning of summer and I have swimming pools on the brain, wouldn’t this make a great pool or beach bag? We always have so much stuff to take to the pool with us, we need something big. And it’s under $30!
This straw tote certainly says summer too, and has tassels! But the pink one is really calling my name!
Great round up of bags! I have the last beach/pull bag ordered but eyeing a plain straw tote that I want to DIY with tassels or poms. I'll be the cutest river goer this summer!
I love this post because I'm a huge fan of handbags. I love that all the bags you've shown are reasonably priced. I haven't been to Nordstrom for a while, but I've seen a lot of fashion blogs with Nordstrom clothes and accessories, so I think I'll check them out. Thank you for the inspiration.
