As someone who carries a big tote bag almost every single day, this summer’s mini bag trend is really appealing to me. Practical? I’m not so sure. But the thought of being able to leave the house with a purse that weighs less than a small child? Yes, please!
Mini bags are a big trend right now, but there are so many out there that are just too tiny. I knew if I was going to jump on the bandwagon that I at least needed a style that would fit my phone, my keys, my wallet and a lip gloss. Those are my essentials. That’s why I love this Mini Top Handle Fiordaliso E by Furla.
It’s sweet and petite without being minuscule and completely impractical. Although it’s small, it can hold quite a lot. In addition to the essentials mentioned above, I can also fit a bottle of hand sanitizer in this bag and a granola bar, too.
I’m partial to using the top handle because it makes me feel extra lady-like, but this cute bag also comes with a gorgeous chain strap that’s perfect if you prefer to be hands-free.
Size aside, I also really love the textured grain of leather on this bag. Smooth leather bags tend to get scratched up and scuffed really easily in NYC as you’re on-the-go, bumping into people. This bag is gorgeous and feminine, but it’s also tough which is exactly what I need day-to-day in the city.
Whether you can’t resist the latest trend or your shoulders just need a break from those heavy tote bags, this is the mini bag to invest in this season.
