Must-Have Vol. 2

bags for summerToday we’re back with the second installment of the must-have series, and this is a good one! For the past few months I’ve been seeing saddle bags EVERYWHERE. In fact, I picked up this gem from Old Navy in brown a while back and wear it all the time (seen here and here). Because I love the style so much, I’ve been thinking of purchasing another one (this one is my absolute dream), and the above picks are my top choices. I love saddle bags because they have the huge flap which is easier to open, and they usually contain a lot more storage than usual!

Bright colors have been peaking my interest lately, so the blue Tory Burch is the perfect option for summer. However, with fall just around the corner, I’m thinking of leaning towards more of  a neutral color. Options 3 and 4 are probably the two that I’ve narrowed it down to, and who can pass up the less than $50 price point?!

1. Tory Burch (on major sale!) // 2. Rebecca Minkoff ( also on major sale!) // 3. Sole Society (on Anniversary sale in purple here) // 4. Vince Camuto // 5. Ivanka Trump (love the hardware!)

Whats your favorite?! Shop my picks & other favorite saddle bags below:
