For Christmas this year my husband, who is a fabulous gift giver, gave me a stamped leather black Kate Spade tote. I didn’t ask for it, I didn’t hit at it and honestly, I hadn’t ever seen this bag before so when I opened it I was shocked!!! Before my son Derek was born 6 years ago, that Christmas I flat out asked for a gorgeous burnt orange Cole Hann bag. I thought this was my last chance at getting a pocketbook that cost way too much money to justify when you need diapers, formula and daycare. I still wear and love that burnt orange bag all the time. Well, all the time ….until… my gorgeous new tote arrived this Christmas. It started me thinking on how much I really love bags (yet run out of the house with my debit card in my back pocket) so today I am bringing you a Friday’s Fresh Picks fill with some of my favorite totes out in stores right now.
I just adore this tote because, well….I want to treat myself! Treat Yourself by Kate Spade
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? This is TOTEally Fabulous!! Campus Shopper by Frye
Navy has become my go to summer color. I love this navy Nylon Tote from Banana Republic
For an animal print that is pretty tame you could get this Cole Haan Parker Nylon Tote from 6.PM
The Voyage by DvF is TDF and totally my color!!!
I LOVE Orla Kiely! I love everything she makes. The Linear Stem is no different, LOVE it!!
You can never ever go wrong with a Kate Spade Bag. The Hawthorne Lane Ryan at Piperlime is such a classic for spring
Another fav from Orla Kiely that I have to add is her Classic Multi Stem Zip Holdall. I could stare at this print forever
Since so many knitters and crocheters follow my blog, I couldn’t resist sharing this BallSack from CafePress

OMG! That Frye tote is amazing. Amazing! I love totes. So many people always ask me, “Wouldn’t a wristlet be easier?” But no! The bigger bag, the better for me. I like to have lots of room for lots of stuff. Love Orla Kiely too! Great picks, Sarah!
My mom got me a Marsala-ish Coach bag for my birthday this year– totally unexpected and also a color I wouldn’t have chosen for myself, but I love it now. And it works as an on-the-go mom bag too. From the picks above, I LOVE the Orla Kiely bags! Her prints are super fun and retro.
