When investing in a quality piece like a handbag, pair of shoes or a nice coat, I like to consider how versatile it’ll be within my existing wardrobe. What colors will it look great with? Can I wear it during the day with more casual pieces and then dress it up at night? Can I wear it as a crossbody, a clutch and a shoulder bag? I basically do a mental checklist of all the ways I can style it for whatever the occasion may be. Does anyone else do that? That may be why my closet is full of so many neutrals… I like to get a lot of wear out of the items I spend money on!

One piece that you can be sure you’ll wear a lot? This bag from kate spade new york. Not only is it the perfect size for day-to-night styling, it also features an optional crossbody strap! This extra strap takes it from a sophisticated top handle silhouette to a wear-everyday, throw over your shoulder kind of bag. The best part? This bag was created to allow for interchangeable flaps to showcase a new look with each wear. How fun is that?! Naturally, being a neutrals girl, I opted for classic black (which comes with the bag), stripes and polka dots (which are having a moment right now, by the way!). The bag itself also comes in this creamy neutral and this pale pink hue, if you prefer more subtle neutrals!

Each flap comes with easy-to-connect snap closures that secure firmly into the back pocket of the bag. Switch ’em out in a pinch to shake up your whole outfit! There are so many darling flap options to choose from too. There’s something for everyone! I’m thinking of picking up the shearling flap for winter wear, or this quilted pearl style for dressing up the bag a little more for nighttime.

PS – don’t miss some of my favorite new season items from kate spade new york below!

  • I love the print on this number! Ideal for wearing from brunch, to errands and then straight on to dinner with a change of accessories.
  • These nude + black sandals are everything. A stylish neutral for date night!
  • I know it’s too early to talk holiday shopping, but this little red dress would be SO pretty for a party this season!
  • If you’re on the hunt for a good work pump, don’t miss this new pointed-toe style! Chic, streamlined and comfortable.
  • With no end to summer in sight here in Texas, it’s probably smart to think about grabbing a couple of dresses like this. The color scheme and silhouette look like fall, but it’s super lightweight and perfect for the patio!
