The Saddle Bag Story

You did it! You made it! Wahoo! This week has been kinda crazy, but then, such is life ;) What's your go to outfit? For me, right now that's rompers and this saddle bag! 

I don't know how long you have been following me (if you're new, welcome!!), but I have been obsessed with Cuyana for a while. I first mentioned them here, but had discovered them about 2 years prior. I also brought them up last Christmas season, to remind you to get fewer, better gifts.

This time I'm back with a #makeitessential campaign, and I'm so glad to be doing so, with this adorable saddle bag! I love this size, but it also comes in a mini version. So, why a saddle bag?

1) They are timeless. Saddle bags aren't new. They are said to have originated in AD, as purely functional bags; however, they are so chic and have survived the test of time. They're never going to be out of style, so they are the perfect investment piece right now, especially since they are a current trendy.

2) They fit in anywhere. They can really go with any outfit! Wear them with your jeans or your dress, they go with both.

3) They are functional. Yes, they are pretty, but you can really just chunk anything in there. If I'm carrying a large bag, it's a Neverfull, so I like the ability to fit what I need, especially if it is to an event.

Yes, there are a lot of vendors that sell saddle bags, but Cuyana  is the best way to go, if you can budget it! They are an awesome price for such an investment piece. You can keep it forever and hand it off to your daughter or granddaughter, later on down the road. 

We've lost a "investment piece" type of mind, with our cheap clothing, so I'd love to help restore it, by creating new essentials. Will you join me? I know I loved raiding my mom's closet when I could, so I hope to continue that chic, legacy.

What do you think? Are you going to invest in a saddle bag this season? I highly suggest it! Oh and did I mention that this one resembles the Chloe bag, but is a fraction of the cost, for the same quality? Yes, please!
