I’ve been on the look out for a pretty floral handbag ready for the Summer months and have come across some beauties at Nica.
Although I do tend to cart around a lot of “stuff” in my handbag, I’ve come to realise that a minimalist approach on a day to day basis is quite adequate.
Therefore, as much as I do like a ‘big’ bag like a tote or shopper I have opted to downsize – just a little bit – and go for a messenger style handbag this Summer.
I like a canvas bag in the Summer, as it gives off a lighter feel, especially as I have a love of linen and floaty fabrics during June, July, August and September if we are luckily enough with the weather.
These two are my favourites, although I have chosen to buy the Sheila Messenger Denim Floral Print Bag. I think it will contrast, as well as mix and match with my Summer outfits.
The bright blue denim is offset with gorgeous large white blooms, to make the bag have a story all of it’s own.
The bag is secured via a top zip with two internal pockets, one which is also zipped. A neutral tan crossbody strap and vibrant orange lining make this simple bag a summer beauty.
My other favourite was the Evelin Crossbody Lucia Print Bag, which again is slightly smaller than the messenger bag and designed in a neutral deep beige canvas with pretty pink, white and yellow blossoms printed throughout.
Again it has an adjustable crossbody shoulder strap and a flashy hot pink lining.
There is also an external slip pocket at the front of the bag with one internal zipped pocket and a top zip fastening to finish.
This bag would easily blend in well with summery outfits, whether they are plain or patterned.
The added bonus with the Evelin Crossbody bag is it’s on sale for Half Price at the moment, as are many of Nica other canvas and leather handbags.
Both these bags are made from a strong and durable canvas and will certainly make a great fashion statement throughout the Summer months.
Now all I have to do is wait patiently at the door for the delivery man to bring me my new bag – I really do get quite excited waiting for a new purchase to arrive! 🙂
