It seems like just about everything goes for Spring/Summer handbags and purses!Â The good news is that you probably don’t need to go out and buy a new bag.Â The bad news?Â They’re all very, very tempting!Â But I’m here to help – below are some of my budget friendly favorites (and a few splurges) so you don’t have to put an empty wallet in that new bag!
I’ve got to put it out there – I despise the Boho trend.Â It was hard for me to find six palatable bags, although I don’t mind the two on the far right.Â It seems like Boho is just a collection of all things ugly – whether they’re patterns, textures, or color.Â However, I know some people dig it – so if that’s you, sorry!Â Below are listings for the bags above, left to right and top to bottom.
I’m thrilled to see that the studded/mirrored/otherwise embellished style is still alive and kicking.Â These rock-chic totes are amazing with jeans and a blazer, but pair equally well with a girly Spring dress.Â I have the Heather Tote (top left corner) and it’s super roomy – I actually use it as an overnight bag.Â I adore it and am quite pleased with the purchase.Â Bags with hardware like this tend to be more expensive, but all of the options above are from Handbag Heaven.Â Use the Handbag Heaven icon at the bottom of this post to navigate to the site and you’ll receive an extra 15% off your purchase!

Texturized handbags are another one of my favorites.Â Texture is a great thing to play with throughout your outfit, and an easy way to add interest.Â While I usually stick to basic black with my handbags, I found some bags with fabulous color that I just couldn’t resist!Â The Riley Ruffle Handbag (top right corner) is my latest obsession – it’s definitely on my MUST HAVE list.Â This set is also all from Handbag Heaven, so once again, use the link at the bottom to get a discount!
