This week has been one of those weeks where I feel like I have accomplished a lot, but at the same time there is so much more to do. Anyone else having that kind of week? Well, when I feel like all I do is run around, I need to have a handbag with me that can endure the back and forth as well as the shoes I am wearing.


Chloe Messenger Bag

Cross-body style messenger bags have always been a huge love of mine. The hands free option is always a plus and after a few minutes you forget that you even have a bag slung across your body. But there are some major drawbacks when it comes to cross-body messenger bags. How and where does the strap hit? No need for the overly split up chest.

I have to say, I always have an eye out for a great tote. I mean, when you think about it, isn’t it great to just throw all your stuff for the day in a bag and go? Don’t get me wrong, I love smaller bags and clutches, but for day to day use, I think totes are amazing. More often times than not, like most people, I find myself leaving early in the morning and not getting home until dinner.

I am all for See by Chloe clothing. It is more fitting for me and my lifestyle. More simple, more casual, and mostly, more affordable. And just recently I brought you the adorable See by Chloe Key chains that I really like! Cute, almost bordering on too cute, but the perfect little accessory. So for a larger array of handbags from See by Chloe I expected, oh I don’t know, easy chic styles.

When I look through the Chloe bags that we have covered on Purse Blog, I re-realize why I like this brand. The bags are funky, edgy, chunky, with a touch of modern. Yes, the leather can be unbelievably heavy, and yes, the bags can be pricey. Yet the urban touch of the bags really draws me in.

And right when I ran into the Chloe Joan Shoulder Bag, I fell in love.

It’s a grey, grey day in Georgia. And apparently, it’s going to be like this for the rest of the week, which might as well be forever. We need the rain, but I get in such a funk when it’s like this that all I accomplish is a lot of tv-watching and online shopping.

So, in honor of the grey skies outside, I bring you the Chloe Cyndi Tote in taupe (looks like grey to me – taupe is misleading!).

I continue to live my life as if there are at least 40 hours in a day. I plan for 40 hours and when I realize there are only 24 I am left feeling tired, over-worked, and behind. Mostly behind. After the whirlwind of a trip in Spain I got back to the States only to pack up and move!

Ok, so maybe you are quite tired of hearing about how my traveling has taken a toll on me. Because really, I am lucky to get to travel so often and to so many amazing places. But really, I am beat! At least I slept until a quite normal hour EST today and I feel like I will get back on track sooner this trip than the last.

You can not get away from the bright bold colors of spring. Even the shapes are bold, geometric, and memorable. At times some of the colors look like a crayon box gone awry and other times it is the perfect mix of colors on a blank palette. A similar color scheme was used in the Chloe Saskia Pouchette and while many of you were not fans, I was oddly lured in.

Ok, so I was not a huge fan of the Chloe Bay Bag when I first saw it. Then, it began to grow on me. I began to see the signature Chloe bag appeal, the oversized hardware, thick leather, and sturdy-chic appeal. So then I found myself loving the bag. Loving it when I saw someone walk down the street wearing it and loving how easy the bag is to be worn casually.
