There’s something about the start of summer that makes all of us so happy, and typically that surrounds the idea of warm, long, sunny days and time off from work. My love for summer started in childhood, the idea of a break from school, time with my friends, camp memories, and family vacations continues into adulthood with wanting to give my kids those same experiences. As a bag girl, I like to add a bag to my collection around summer time, one that fits into my wardrobe and fills that summer vibe I love – typically with a cheery color!
This isn’t my first purchase from Italist, in fact, I’ve already purchased my beloved lilac Teen Jodie thanks to your help and a gift card from the site! As I shared in my first post, the really cool thing about Italist is that you can receive Italian pricing on current season bags.
Best Sumer Bags From Italist
For this new summer bag, I have four contenders. One stands out a bit as an odd-man-out, merely because of the size. I do have totes that I use, but I am seemingly always on the hunt for a better haul-all and this Fendi bag keeps me coming back. There is this pretty sage green version, but there is also a blue option as well.
Now you all know I am a Bottega Veneta girlie, and this cerulean blue Mini Cabat brings me all sorts of happiness. 1.) It reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time, The Devil Wears Prada and Miranda Priestly’s iconic monologue on “this stuff.” 2.) As a major fan of the Cabat, this mini size is ideal for summer, especially with the removable but extra-long shoulder strap!
There’s this Miu Miu Wander Hobo. The matelassé nappa leather is an effect that the brand is known for, with its three-dimensional effect created by refined workmanship.
Lastly, the Prada Cleo continues to taunt me, and while it’s quite different than what I usually opt for, it also means my closet doesn’t have a bag in this category. The Cleo is sleek and compact, which doesn’t allow for my usual carrying, but I love the shape. If you are a Cleo fan like I am, Italist keeps getting some new color variations, so check back often (the one pictured in the main image was the color I loved, but it’s sold out now!)
So, help me decide which bag you think I’d like – and yes, I know they all look quite different!
