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!

When I think of studded accessories, I think about that “punk rock” phase I went through in junior high, complete with chunky studded belt and emo song lyrics scribbled on my notebook.  Well I’m happy to report that the studs I’m wearing these days are a bit more tasteful and free of teenage angst.  Check out a few of my favorite studded accessories this fall (sappy song lyrics not included).
