For the last month of Winter, I’ve started using the Blues. the large tote bag (Review here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/review/B01NGU2478/RSC2WZKMMO5F5?ref=pf_ov_at_pdctrvw_srp), the Express Foldover Clutch (See Foldover Clutch article), the small blue clutch (see Clutch article) and the blue three zip wallet. The large tote bag just had the small shoulder handles, so I added a 50 inch crossbody strap (black, because dark blue was not available in the 1″ thickness) so now it is a viable and easily carried crossbody tote now.
Remember in the first article I gave a broad overview of types of bags, seasonal colors and introduction to each. For Winter, you can use dark gem colors, think dark sapphire, dark emerald, dark ruby, purple/plum, mustard and so on. I can carry this with the black leather jacket, the black oil slick overcoat and a lemon outer coat. You can wear most anything, I have brown leather shoes to go with it (you can carry different color items, just ensure they are either the same material or same theme) blue suede tennies or dark brown outer boots.
I like medium to large bags so I can carry the basics (small to medium clutch), ereader and 2N1 computer + cords, metal resuable water bottle, metal double walled travel liquid container, emergency med kit, medication/insulin bag and so on.
The red bucket bag I previously carried (see article) was really a bit small, but it had many outer pockets that allowed me to carry almost all I needed. Now with the last month of Winter, I have switched to the blues.
Until next time,
