Hi friend! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was really nice, but one more day would be awesome! We got some things done around the house, including work in my son, James’ room. I can’t wait to share that with you tomorrow! He moved from his old bedroom into the rarely used ‘media room’ and loves it!
We also went out to eat a few times- if you’re in Houston, we sat at the bar and had great food at Union Kitchen on Friday night, then ate an early dinner at Barnaby’s Cafe on Sunday. They have a good variety of options and it’s a casual atmosphere.
Of course, dinner at the Cannon’s didn’t disappoint on Saturday night, and I brought this cheesecake. It was delicious and simple to make.
15 Best Amazon Bags Under $55
Today, I’m excited to share 15 quality bags from Amazon and they are all under $55! Most of them are even under $30 and they’re all super cute, durable and functional.
This vegan leather bag looks so expensive and if I saw it in a department store, I wouldn’t be surprised to see an over $200 price tag on it. It’s so luxe and well made and absolutely stunning in person! The material feels soft and sturdy and it comes in every color imaginable.
I chose the “1-brown” and it’s a perfect, warm cognac that goes with everything. It’s a bucket style bag with a handy outside pocket and inner zip pocket. There’s also a magnetic closure to keep your things concealed inside.
The bag comes with a colorful bag strap and a vegan leather strap. I wanted to change it up and ordered this striped crossbody bag strap. I think the colors look great with it and coordinate well with my wardrobe.
I’ve been all about these chic and fun graphic canvas bags this year. I took “Beach Please” to Florida, and “Weekend Vibes” is a no brainer. Next up is “Road Trip” and I’m taking it to the camp when Brian and I go in a few weeks!
These bags are so strong and study, hold a ton and there’s even more fun sayings! They make a great gift too!
This quilted crossbody is chic and looks way more expensive in person that it is! Honestly, I kinda want to buy it in all the colors after getting this black one and liking it so much. Okay, I could probably do without the green, but the white, blue grey, khaki and pink are all so good!
The bag is a little wider that it may appear, but that’s great because it makes it more functional for holding more than just a lipstick and ID. You can wear the strap long or double it up. I wear it on my shoulder or crossbody style.
I’ve carried this bag for what feels like ages and I love the style, color and how much it holds! The braided detail and little studs make it special, but it’s still under $36! It’s nice and roomy inside with one main compartment, a zipper pocket, and two slot pockets.
Under the front flap is another pocket- that’s where I like to keep my phone for easy access. I really like this brown one I got, but the black and grey look great too.
The neoprene tote is a Must Have in my house! I’ve used mine for everything from pool/beach bags, gym totes, holding returns, as totes holding outfit changes for the kids and even as an everyday bag when I have lots to carry.
When you use them at the beach, they’re so easy to hose down to clean off any sand and they dry in a jiffy. You can also machine wash them.
There’s tons of styles/colors/patterns to choose from, but I also like this grey/red.
Y’all, I am so impressed with this crossbody bag! It looks super expensive, but it’s actually under $22! I got the “beige” in size Medium and it’s perfect for date night or brunch or even daily if you have a small carry. The gold hardware is so pretty and you can adjust the length of the strap.
The ‘beige’ describes the color of the strap, but the bag itself is a gorgeous creamy white. I’ve worn it several times and I’m crazy about it, from the way it looks to even how it feels!
If you’re heading to work or a coffee shop and need to bring a laptop, this quilted bag is a gorgeous alternative to your standard laptop case. Even the inside is pretty with a silky striped lining.
I keep this bag in my mudroom with a a pen, pencil and notebook inside, along with my eyeglasses. When I’m ready to head out the door, I simply add in my laptop, phone, and wallet and and I’m off!
I accidentally photographed this bag from the back- on the front is a large pocket that is so convenient for holding the things you want easiest access to.
If your preppy side tends to dominate, you might love this bag. The jockey and horse print is fun, but the vegan leather stripe and patch detail make it even better. The double straps are adjustable and sit comfortably on your shoulder.
Inside, there’s a large main compartment, two slip pockets and a zip pocket. The bag zips closed at the top and all of your belongings are hidden inside, out of view. There are also stud feet at the bottom to avoid scratching.
CROSSBODY BAG WITH BEE BAG STRAP OR STRIPE BAG STRAP
This might be one of my most worn bags in the bunch. I find the crossbody bag the perfect size for holding lots of things, but not being too overwhelming. I cut the strap it comes with off and have had fun wearing different straps with it.
The bee strap was a longtime fave and I always got so many compliments on it. It’s really sturdy and strong, but also so cute! I recently got the stripe strap and that adds a fun pop of color.
Isn’t this such a pretty and functional wallet?! I adore the color and how it comes with a wristlet strap. Inside, it has a zip coin pouch, slots for cash, cards and even a pen loop!
I carried this canvas crossbody bag all over town this summer. I found it extremely practical and useful for trips to the park when I didn’t want to carry a big or expensive purse and I didn’t have to worry about being precious with this one.
It holds all of your essentials and is big enough to fit an iPad inside! I usually put my keys and phone in the outside pocket and my wallet, and anything else in the larger inside zip pocket.
You cannot go wrong with this darling canvas and faux leather duffle bag tote for traveling. It’s a great size for carrying all of your weekend outfits and more. You can carry it by the handles or detachable crossbody strap and there’s even a back panel that slides over your suitcase handle so it can sit on top of your luggage while you pull it! Not to mention, it’s so cute with the stripes!
I’ve used this toiletry bag on my last several trips and it’s worked great and holds a ton! It’s got four compartments and a sturdy hook so you can hang it and easily access all of your things. Over 1,600 people have given it 5 star ratings on Amazon!
For a more professional bag, this satchel is top notch. It looks so upscale and luxe and the shape is perfect! You can carry it by the handles or with the removeable shoulder strap, and it comes with a wristlet. Don’t worry about getting the bottom messed up – it has 4 feet to protect it. It’s also designed to keep you organized inside with a middle pouch zip pocket, side zip and slip pockets.
