Can you believe it’s August already? It’s crazy how fast summer goes especially in comparison with that horrid endless winter we had this year. With the arrival of August, it is inevitable that we have to start looking for fall clothes and accessories soon. I can always be convinced I need a new handbag and fall seems like a good reason to me!
I took at look at the new arrivals on Coach’s site and picked a few of my favorites. I don’t currently have a bag in a basic brown leather color so I chose a few different versions of a slouchy brown bag from Coach. The prices this season are a tad scary, so I would want to see these in person to confirm quality. I have to admit, I am a Coach girl through and through but their quality hasn’t been up to cost a few times lately. I am assuming this increase in prices will equate to higher quality.
The Soft Borough Bag in Nappa
is beautiful! I love the richness of the color and the clean design. I also love that it is a cross body bag and looks to have tons of room. This would be a great travel bag.
The Soft Borough Bag with Grommets
is amazing but the price is too steep for my budget. I love this bag for all the same reasons as the non-grommet version but for approximately $300 more, I could live without grommets!
A little more reasonable on price are the color blocked clutch and the metallic bag. I haven’t yet bought a clutch because I tend to think they are difficult to manage when working in the city and carrying a laptop on a daily basis. If I could find one I could fit into my laptop bag, that might work, but daily I tend to prefer a shoulder bag. I do really like this color blocked version
. I also like that it is a wristlet. One of my big fears with clutches is that I might leave it somewhere!
I always love a metallic bag
and think this one would go great with so many outfits. I feel like this particular metallic is subtle and could act as a neutral. I also like that it has a magnetic closure. I hate when a bag doesn’t have a closure and all your stuff falls out when driving!
All in all, I think every one of these bags could transition from now until fall. What would you pick? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
