Closet Staple: Purses With Personality

You have serious personality. It’s time your purses, clutches, totes, whatevs have the same! I get it, it’s hard to make a commitment on something that feels so trendy, so frivolous and so — not black or brown or super neutral. But bare with me because I’m here to tell you nearly every item below has serious staying power (for at least the next few spring and summers!).

I added two similar clutches last year and I’m already bringing them back out again. They bring a smile to my face, and seriously elevate even a neutral blouse and go-to denim… more modern & savvy (couldn’t resist). They do the color and print mixing and cool factor for you, and it always results in compliments. Always.

I’d never suggest spending hundreds (or thousands!) on a more whimsical crossbody or clutch (which by the way, many that look like clutches below have a versatile strap, too), but know that the most expensive one below tops out at $120ish, and most are under $80. Trust me on this one, ladies, and if you’re looking for a purse with personality, make this your summer… and go for it now, so you have a solid five months to enjoy.

    I’m a Stella & dot stylist here in Gaedens! So funny you posted the Taj clutch because when you posted a couple weeks ago about summer style for a trip I just knew you would love that one and it should be on the list! We also have a Palm clutch I know you would love!! Here is my personal link in case you or any readers ever want to have a Stella & dot stylist. I will let you know when there are sales, help with any product questions, show you things in person, and even give you a link to shop where you are offered monthly half off deals.

      That’s so funny Janalee… Stella & Dot has SO many cute items right now and appreciate you offering your help! 🙂 (sorry for the delay — a sprained ankle and my bro’s wedding has had me crazy!).
