When we talk about taking a look from day to night, it usually involves switching handbags, which can be a bit of a pain. You know how it goes. Invariably, you forget to move something over that you need, and you end up with a handbag in every room of the house.
Kate spade has recently come out with a brilliant solution — convertible handbags! I was thrilled when they asked me to take one for a test drive. Take a look.
This is the make it mine bare candace satchel. It’s a great bag on its own, and this tusk color is a gorgeous neutral that will go with practically anything. (It also comes in black.)
But take a look at it now.
With the simple addition of this leopard candace reversible wrap, my handbag and I are ready for a night on the town!
It’s super simple to add the wrap. The straps of the candace satchel are removable, and you just put the wrap on, replace the straps, and you’re good to go! The reverse side is the tusk color, so if you have the candace satchel in black, you basically get 3 different bags out of this one wrap.
I just think that’s the coolest idea since
sliced gluten-free bread. They only have one other style convertible handbag at the moment, the byrdie convertible crossbody, but I’m hoping they’ll add more. Both come with a variety of options for wraps to change up the look.
I picked out gold J and S stickers so I could put my initials on my bag, and I was planning to add this pretty flower key chain as a bag charm, but it didn’t really work on this bag, so now I have a new key chain, which I needed anyway.
These would all make great Mother’s Day gifts, or graduation gifts if you know of someone graduating this spring. Or maybe you have a birthday coming up… #justsayin’
Speaking of Mother’s Day gifts, the bracelets I’m wearing are both mom-inspired. This mom engraved idiom bangle cracks me up every time I look at it, and the mom knows best mama bear bracelet is sweet and understated. They make a nice pairing, or of course you can wear them each alone or with some of your other bangles.
Now let’s talk for a second about these shoes. I love how these strappy sandals with the chunky heel instantly elevate my classic LBD into an edgy evening-out look.
If you were to wear this outfit to the office, you’d probably want to wear a more conservative shoe, perhaps a pump, and switch shoes before going out, but you may have a daytime occasion that these shoes would be appropriate for. I would totally throw these on with jeans and a cute top to go to lunch with friends.
I love how the simple switch of a handbag can completely change an outfit, and now it’s easier than ever with the new convertible handbags from kate spade new york. You don’t even have to swap out the contents, just add a wrap, and you’re good to go!
