Dooney & Bourge Nylon Erica SacEven though the rain in these parts has ended for now, bags to carry during bad weather are still on my mind. I usually avoid going out as much as I can in the rain (I have weather-sensitive hair), but sometimes it’s unavoidable, particularly for those that live in urban areas and can’t get everywhere from the climate-controlled comfort of their cars.

As far as finding a bag that’s pretty straightforward and water-friendly, I think that the Dooney & Bourke Nylon Erica Sac is a strong contender. The color is bright and cheery to add a pop of color on a grey, rainy day and the nylon material is likely to survive inclement conditions better than a similarly colored leather would. It’s not a breakthrough as far as design goes, but it’s functional and would save your bags from bad-weather ruin and everyone needs something like that in their closet. Buy through Nordstrom for $130.

    Sorry, but I think that I feel asleep looking at this picture. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…….what a boring bag. Classic doesn’t have to be this dull!

    Thanks for covering this bag Amanda! I’ve been eyeing it on the D&B website for a few weeks now, but I just can’t decide what color to choose. I especially love the hot pink lining.
