Just one stop in the accessories department at Target will show you that unique bags are on trend this summer. While I’m typically super practical with my purse selections (read: boring,) this trend has been catching my eye. I decided to drop into a local thrift store and see what I could find.
I can’t believe my luck! You guys, I found these 4 bags (pictured below) for just $12! It is so interesting to me how trends cycle back around through the years and the thrift store can be a treasure trove for finding the repeated styles for cheap. This is a great way to dabble in trends without breaking the bank. Trendy items like this are often short lived and therefore barely used. Call me a romantic, but I love the fact that something that was “old” to someone else can have a second chance as a new addition to my closet.
Black and White with a Vintage Flair
How cute is this vintage black and white clutch? I have such an affinity for vintage inspired fashion and could not pass up this little number.
This little blue woven bag is not only on trend but also incredibly on brand for us. You know we love a good smoky blue!
Teaming with Texture
I love both the texture of this straw bag and the bamboo handles. These textures are literally all over the place this summer.
This vintage bag in unique in multiple ways including the triangle shape, the gold ring detail connecting the handle, and the faux alligator skin texture.
This little trip inspired me to look for some more inspiration on Pinterest. Be sure to check out the board we have created over there.
I mentioned in our recent OOTW that layers can be hard to come by in the summer and being intentional about which bags you carry when can add interest to outfits that are lacking in layers.
