Warm temperatures have definitely set in which means we are in for the rainy season. Now it’s more about carrying a lightweight, water-resistant bag during your work commute and beyond. Longchamp’s Le Pilage Tote has been one of WorkChic’s all-time favorite bags due to its great value and style. The bag is roomy enough to be filled up with all your essentials including files, laptop, umbrella, lunch, etc. The nylon is easily folded flat for travel.
It’s one of those bags that you want to own at least two of whether in different sizes or colors. The smaller size is perfect as a daily bag. Perk up your workwear this summer with bright colors like coral, bubble, yellow or green. Me? I want mine in navy please! How about this one for your summer vacation?
Whether you are going on a business trip or flying abroad on a vacation, a reliable handbag is a must. A crossbody bag is not my daily go-to bag yet it’s my essential bag when I’m traveling. I’m sure many of you prefer a hands-free bag with quick access to your passport, phone, tickets, makeup, etc. All I need is a carryon and a little crossbody to hop between terminals. So, here is this quilted crossbody to hold your important belongings together in a luxe Chanel-like style.
Happy May everyone! Finally feels like we are well into spring in my neck of the woods. Don’t forget to take some moments to smell the flowers… literally. Perhaps, plan a vacation even if just a quick weekend road trip.
I want to share a favorite handbag of mine. This python embossed satchel is by Cynthia Rowley for T.J. Maxx that I purchased a few years back. Seriously, the bag is as good as new just like the day I bought it. The python print is exotic, luxe while versatile. The autumn season is the perfect opportunity to sport animal prints so make them your go-to neutral!
For a similar style, how about is this one from QVC and this one by Tory Burch? And I love the way vibrant red heels contrast against the gray tones!
Wearing animal print is much easier with accessories (one piece at a time) as shown from the office-ready ensemble below. By the way, the bangle is the prettiest pave bangle I’ve seen in person!

I came across a timeless yet eye-catching red tote (Mansur Gavriel $675) while flipping through the latest edition of ELLE magazine. The bag effortlessly accents the entire outfit with a splash of red in clean silhouette. Get the chic look for less with this everyday leather tote ($199) in a similar style. Available in 9 colors. For under $100, check out this reversible tote.
This leather satchel is a practical bag to comfortably stuff all your essentials for work or school. Available in 3 colors. I personally like the look of navy leather with gold-tone hardware together.
