Love the compilation! I agree that these are a must have in the closet!
Small backpacks are must-haves this season! Trendy and useful!
I love sling bags & backpacks!!
Small backpack is what I need to invest in. I pretty much have the rest. I am totally into more medium sized bags rather than large totes.
When sling was introduced, I went crazy! But these medium size shoulder bags are my favorite. They are not too big nor too small.
Lovely post. I need to get some shoulder bags soon.
I need a handbag for work so it has to fit to several suits, what can you recommend? Greetings and nice blog 🙂
