I'm a Handbag Collector, and I'll Be Wearing These 28 Cute Styles on Vacation

While I consider myself a minimalist when it comes to my wardrobe, the same can't be said about my handbag collection. Some people care about shoes or jewelry, but I'm a purse girl through and through. While I already have at least 50 bags in my small New York apartment, it seems like my wish list is never-ending. Now that summer is here, I'm leaning into trendier silhouettes I can take on all the vacations I have planned this year. From Miami to glamping in upstate New York, these 28 handbags are coming with me everywhere. I've rounded up all the best summer bags at every price point and style. You can thank me later!
