Must-Have Summer Bucket Bag

A breezy top, high rise button-up jeans and a fabulous handbag…I’m ready to take on the day in this outfit! (Look good, feel good, right?). I’m a firm believer in the power of a new handbag – and especially one that’s unique yet timeless, and bonus points if it can effortlessly mix into my daily wardrobe. The Brahmin Southcoast Collection never ceases to impress me, and their latest line has me swooning. Soft leather in relaxed silhouettes with bohemian details (those tassels!)…it’s a tough call to choose just one, but the Isabelle Drawstring Bag caught my eye.

I’m forever a fangirl of this beautiful handbag brand! (Take a look at when I visited their headquarters from this post in the fall). Though I’m all for their classic bags, the Southcoast line speaks to my casual, relaxed sense of style. I gravitate towards bags I can wear daily – from date night to the grocery store (…let’s be honest, not everyday is a glamorous one!), and this entire collection is both practical and dreamy at the same time. I have scooped up quite a few soft leather bags over the years, but the Isabelle Knoxville is a showstopper (as you can see above – those woven details add such a special touch!). Both my mom and my friends have asked to try this pretty on when they’ve seen me wearing it…which is why I love Brahmin so much – it’s a brand for every age and every sense of style.

Take a look at the full Southcoast Collection here, feel free to shop more of my favorites below! Happy Monday, friends! XO

    Hi, me again here commenting on old posts! Hahaha Have you had any trouble with the buttons falling off of these jeans? I want to buy a pair on eBay but the reviews are a little worrisome regarding the buttons. Thanks in advance!

      Hey girly! Comment away, I love it, ha! I have had no trouble with these jeans…truth be told, they’re one of my few pairs on heavy rotation (sea of jeans, yet I wear a constant three haha)…they are even pretty tight skinny jeans and the buttons have been solid for me! Hope that helps, XOXO
