Toting Life Around

I’ve become accustomed to my love of crossbody bags. I’m able to be hands free, have it slung across my body and don’t have to worry about someone snatching my bag from me (just saying). Well with the recent snow falls on the east coast, I’m just not feeling the crossbody bag at this time. I’m constantly wearing my olive green parka when I’m out and I just don’t like having a bag slung around me when I’m wearing how many layers to stay warm.

The bag of affection that I am feeling is the hand held tote. Joanna Hillman, a frequent style muse of mine, first peaked my interest on sporting a hand held tote with her Phillip Lim Knack Sack Tote. Then the recent plastering of the Celine Luggage Tote all over tumblr and street style blogs on the arms of models added to my interest. The Celine bag embodies exactly what I am looking for, a large structured tote with a strong handle you can hold with your hands or hang on your forearms and can basically carry your “life” in it. As in terms of “life”, your necessities like cell, day planner, iPod, etc. and whatever gets you through your day. To me if I’m going to carry a large bag, I should be able to fill it with all my stuff. Though the Celine tote is glamourous, it’s quite pricey like many luxury items that catch my attention so below are some affordable styles with a similar look. You’ll find the details of the bags pictured when you click the image.

I feel like I’ve been a slacker recently in the fashion blogosphere and really do need to catch up on my bloglovin feed (that’s what Sundays are there for). I promise that the next Closet Styling post will definitely be up next week. It’s been difficult to find an image that I like or is similar to the piece I chose out of my closet (working on that tomorrow too). Enjoy the rest of your weekend! xo
