Summer Staple: Bucket Bags

Old Navy Bucket Bag with Tassels

For the longest time, I stewed over the bucket bag.  I loved the idea of it — the nautical inspiration, the relaxed shape — but I never was able to commit.  It was definitely uncharted waters for me and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on something I wasn’t completely sold on yet.  I mean, we can’t all shell out $6,000 for a bucket bag, am I right?

It wasn’t until recently that I finally pulled the trigger on the trend and I’m in love!  When done right, the bucket bag can be classic, playful and practical (it fits all my things, including my DSLR!).

So in the spirit of sharing, I rounded up my favorite bucket bags for you!  Whether you go with something minimalist, bold or boho, I think we can all agree that there’s something for everybody in the mix.  Happy shopping and happy weekend!

    I love bucket bags, they’re wonderful, although I have to be careful to go through the contents regularly because I tend to acquire more “stuff” because there’s more space, hehe. The Elizabeth and James Cynnie Mini Bucket Bag is REALLY cute–but whew–$445!

  5. The bag you’re wearing has a beautiful nude color!
    I like these bags, but I always tend to throw a lot of stuff in there I actually don’t need 😀 And then the digging can start…
