I have two types of bags depending on the time of day:
Day: Laptop bag and cross body
Night: Clutch (which is usually my cross body with the shoulder strap detached)
Weekend: Mini cross body
As you can tell, I like functional handbags. Now, functional handbags that are also stylish – now that is a bit more difficult to attain. Yet, I’ve been able to accumulate my collection through the years (and many-a-scouring through shopping racks). From the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac for weekends to the Lo & Sons travel bag for business trips and the Lafayette 148 New York Anna Leather tote in black for every day (seriously, this bag goes everywhere with me).
To change things up, today’s coveted working look is the the Grove Court Maise handbag from Kate Spade.
I adore the color of this bag. I’ve always loved a rich blue and great hardware. This bag has both. Oh and wait, it also can turn into a cross body bag!
And of course, there’s the lovely lining for which Kate Spade is famous. The best part of this adorable little bag is that it’s currently on sale for $243 (originally $348)! This bag just got that much more fabulous – perhaps even enough to become a part of an ongoing handbag rotation.
