Swap Your Statement Shopper For A Mini Bag

One of the best things about being on holidays is swapping my?big shoppers and totes, which house everything from laptops to ballet flats, iPads to notepads, for a mini bag into which I?can throw just my?keys and credit card and I’m?good to go. Here are the mini bags I’m loving?right now.

This is one of my favourite mini bags right now. The warm terracotta shade is gorgeous and I love the more graphic take on the traditional bucket shape.

Mini leather bucket bag with hoops, Studio, €129 at Zara

This cute crossbody bag is made from raw-cut unlined leather and has hidden magnetic fastenings for a clean and minimal finish. Perfect for when you want to travel light.

Small constructed bag, €69 at Cos

I love the lid opening style of this little satchel-style bag. The blush leather and taupe suede complement each other beautifully and will work just as well in spring summer as autumn winter. This is exactly the kind of stylish alternative bag I like to carry at the weekends when I’m not laden down with “stuff”.

Micro leather and suede shoulder bag, Manu Atelier, €345 at net-a-porter.com

The croc embossed finish of this vegetable leather bag gives it?a lovely textured finish. The gold coloured hardware works beautifully with the rich shade of tan, adding a touch of luxury.

Croc embossed mini bag, €95 at & Other Stories

This gorgeous bag works as a clutch or shoulder bag. I love the rich plum shade and textured suede fabric. It’s perfect for a festive evening out.
