I am excited to announce that I am starting a new series called "Monthly Must!" At the beginning of every month I will give you my recommendation for the one item I would purchase that month to help build your wardrobe. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees, so we can't buy anything & everything we want in the fashion world BUT we can try to add one staple item every month in order to build a classic wardrobe.
This month is all about the bucket bag! You have probably seen these cute guys popping up in every store. They are a classic style bag that is truly a carry-all bag (mine fits everything I need short of my gigantic camera). Most also come with adjustable straps so they can be worn as a crossbody too! They come in an array of sizes, colors & brands, so you won't have a hard time finding one. I would opt for a nice camel or black color because it will help this classic bag stay timeless buy not dating it with a "trendy color". You can find these guys in an array of prices, I got mine at old navy (the large camel one in the photo above) for just under $30 & its a good quality bag (obviously it's not real leather).
I recommend looking into adding one of these classic bags to your closet, I promise your wardrobe will thank me. For more bucket bags check out my "Monthly Must" Pinterest board.
