The handbag every #girlboss needs


Hey Ladies!

I am back from a huge big break that i took in order to attend my BFF wedding in Israel! For the first time i was 7 days with just my hubby and me tuning out and enjoying the peace and quiet without our little munchkin. It was amazing!  The worst though is to get back home to reality and realizing that all your issues are actually still here waiting for you lol. Anyways so it was back to work for me and regular life is picking up quickly. My must have these days is my favorite work bag that i use everyday to get to work and stash all my stuff. It doesn’t matter if you’re clocking hours in a corporate cubicle, startup company or home office – every #girlboss needs a reliable carryall. The best bag is one that can be functional and fashionable, for every budget. Here are my shopping tips when looking for your best carry all and some shoppable links


Office Bag Checklist

  1. Lightweight: As much as i love big, b0xy fashionable bags after an hour holding all my stuff while commuting it gets very heavy. So look for something that without anything inside is ultra light like fabric bags, shoppers, totes etc.
  2. Lots of compartments: You do not want to fumble for 10 minutes when searching for your house keys. Look for something that has small zip compartments and dividers to keep keys, pens, phones, lipstick, and loose change safe.
  3. Sturdy and safe: Even if a bag is light, make sure it’s sturdy and thick enough that it shouldn’t rip or get your laptop, phone etc. damaged. Make sure the handles are big enough and for me a big bonus is when there is a shoulder handle options in case i want my hands free.
  4. Versatile: You want your work bag to match your outfit more or less. So pick a universal color that matches your wardrobe. Grey, Black, Blush, Beige are great everyday colors that go with anything. To pick things up a tassel keychain or colored pompom will give you some more variety.
