Purses have a special place in my heart...

I want to announce the winner of last week's giveaway for the set of 3 cards with Stesha's photography!
The lovely winner is number 28, Ashlyn of My Unrehearsed Life! Congrats! I have contacted her and Stesha about the results. Look for more giveaways coming soon, I have some fabulous ones! Ever heard of Stella & Dot? ;-)
Wow, is it really October already? Where is this year going already? I know that is always said but seriously, why is this year just flying by?

I appreciate each and everyone of you who commented on my post yesterday, you all seriously wowed me by taking the time to share more about yourself with me and I sincerely appreciate it. I try and respond to each comment I receive on all my blogs, pardon me if I don't get that 100% but yesterday's comments I will make sure each of you receive a comment. You took the time to open up more to me, and the only way I can say thank you is to respond and begin a deeper blogger friendship with you. 

Today’s post is a look into my purse, what I carry on a daily basis and what style of purse I look for when shopping. I wanted to do a little fashion post for you all today. I was browsing through Piperlime recently, one of my favorite sites by the way, and would love to shop there frequently if someone else picked up the tab ;-)
First, here is a look into my purse and all I carry, the must have essentials in my opinion. My wallet, aviator sunglasses with a case, Nivea lip balm (my favorite chapstick, it goes on so smooth and lasts for hours), car keys, 4 tubes of lip gloss, a small tube of Advil for those times when you have a headache or some type of pain that circulates about once a month.  Additionally, I have my house and work keys on a separate keychain. I carry my business cards as well in my purse.
I thought I would share a few of my favorite finds for you all and if anyone is willing to pick up the shopping tab, please contact me ;-) My husband would appreciate it too.

I love the floral detail


A cute, carry everything purse



I love the bird detail on the bag
I have been craving this Marc Jacobs purse forever, 
and love the variety of colors available


A cute cross-over bag is a MUST!

Any color of a cross-over bag is a DO!

This Foley-Corina bag has been my dream ever since one of my co-worker’s bought it


As you can see, my personal bag style is a large, can carry all tote. There is not a lot of detail on the purse, it is subtle, maybe a tassle or zipper very strategically placed.
What is your personal purse style? Do you prefer smaller purses, or larger ones with lots of detail?
 How much do you usually carry in your purse?

I am obsessed with purses, I have way way to many of them! But you can never have to many purses! I like to change mine out all the time because I find I get a bit bored after a while! I am currently carrying a small cross body coach bag that Mark gave me for my birthday! Love it!

I love the Marc Jacobs bag!

Stephanie said...

The 2nd one is my favorite! I always end up getting my purses dirty so I never buy expensive ones, but maybe I should get a black one and then I'd be all set! :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

The first one is my fave! Mustard yellow purse is on my Fall "want" list. I'm so wreckless with my purses....just spilt a whole water bottle in my purse last week and all the contents inside still aren't dry...ugh!

Alexa said...

Yup that yellow one is key. Love it!

Karen said...

My purse seriously needs wheels on it, that is how much stuff I keep in there! It's huge and I LOVE it!

Simply LKJ said...

I am loving the crossover bags! I love having my hands free. Right now I have everything crammed in my Hobo clutch because I just want to grab the essentials and go.

Sarah said...

I think we're purse twins! We have the exact same style! I can't even choose a favorite one. If it was up to me, I'd buy them all! :)

Hope you're doing a little better today! Feel free to email me if you wanna chat some more! :)

Tonia @ TheGunnySack.com said...

I adore that first purse!! Fabulous! I am so boring when it comes of handbags...I buy a purse and use it until it wears out!

{The Perfect Palette} said...

I love that yellow one :)

xo, chrissy

Sarah said...

Oooooh I think the red one is my fav. I'm a total purse gal too. I used to get one every year. Now i have the one diaper bag, but i got a cute one that looks like a purse (Orla Kiely hehe) Funny enough i did a guest post on mommy fashion today over on The Short and the Sweet of It. You should stop by if you can.

Ooooh, I love purses too! I've been forcing myself to shop for them at TJ Maxx now because at least the blow on the wallet is softened a bit that way :)

I've found that even though I've reduced the size of my purse significantly, I still manage to lose things in it all the time. Which, means, I carry way too much in it I guess =\

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Super super cute! These purses make me drool!

Stesha said...

i love those purses!!! amazing!

Tereza said...

Great finds! so many nice purses :)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Yay Ashlyn!! :)

And I ADORE that navy bag! I need it hehe!

BeckyJo606 said...

I am so obsessed with purses! They are seriously my weakness. My purse right now is a light brown coach bag. I like it and don't like it. It doesn't have a zipper so the top is open. Good and bad. It's a light brown, so I'm going to have to switch it out soon, but it's still cute. :) I am on the lookout for a cute purple bag--I like the one in your post! :)

Ashlyn said...

i love oversized purses. tj maxx & target are my favorite places to go since they are reasonable prizes!

& i am super excited to win!! YAY!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

I loved all the selections provided...I usually like big bags with lots of openings...

whitney said...

love the orange with all the zippers! super cute.

sherri lynn said...

Love your purse picks! I like bigger bags so I can lug everything around - medicines, big wallet, sunglasses w/ case, a few notepads, probably about 5 pens and just as many lipgloss! I like to have a bag big enough to stuff an umbrella or book into, if I need.

Rebekah said...

Pretty sure I NEED that mustard yellow one. I've been looking for one! I prefer a big bag. I carry anything and everything so I need something that will fit it all!

Kerri said...

Oh, double swoon. That first yellow flower purse has my heart. I have a slight addiction to purses as well. And hats. And well, shoes. Ok, and the list goes on, but that's a fabulous purse! :)

Susan said...

I'm a purse lover. I love all types! I never thought that I would go back to a cross body! (because seriously they were so 90s! and I thought they were tacky when I was in high school. My have times changed!). I'm a big fan of big totes! I have quite a few. That Marc Jacobs is also one I've eyed for years! Although, I got a Longchamp as a gift, and I'm telling you, I love it! It can be dressed up or down and it holds it all, which I love!

REBrown said...

I like the blue one!

I always carry tons of lip gloss and chap stick too.

Aimee said...

I love that yellow purse. I always wanted to have a mustard yellow purse and yet I haven't managed to buy one yet lol

Meggan of Lila Grace said...
