Date Night: Your evening bag should be no-fuss, trendy, and tiny. I love a bright chain-link crossbody so I can throw it over my shoulder and use my hands for more important things-like holding cocktails!  

Professional: This bag should be a neutral tone but never boring. Choose a sophisticated shape with zippered sections for your ID, keys, wallet, etc. This bucket-shaped option is cute enough to bring to happy hour. 

Casual: A weekend bag is truly for function, so opt for a large, durable version! I love this colorful, straw version when I'm headed to Sheep's Meadow for a picnic and need a satchel strong enough to hold a bottle of Rosé, sunscreen, and snacks!
