Accessories, ObsessionsThe Effortless Summer Bag

A few weeks ago I went to a Coach preview to check out their new Chelsea Collection.  As a gift, the brand let us pick our favorite piece from the collection- which I am sure you can imagine was a tough decision. Along with other lucky bloggers, I paraded in front of the mirror trying on bags of all shapes colors and sizes.  I was in the market for an easy summer bag and kept gravitating back to the Classic Leather Flap in my favorite color of the moment- Parchment- with warm gold accents and an adjustable strap.  Despite encouragement to go for something different, I decided to stay true to my classic roots and go for a staple that I’ll use summer after summer. For days when I’m “on-the-go”, I just throw it on cross body.  The bag is deceptively roomy and fits everything I would need for a day out.  And in the easiest day-to-night transformation ever- simply double up the strap and you’ve got a chic shoulder bag to go with any evening ensemble.  See more of the outfit at my style blog The Hsu Closet!
