THE MUST HAVE SUMMER HANDBAG – CHLOE NILE

If you know me, it’s no surprise I have a handbag addiction. Therefore last Saturday, I managed to get my hands on the adorable new Chloe Nile Small Bracelet Crossbody in motty grey. This adorable handbag is available for pre order via Chloe boutiques and select retailers. After a lovely brunch at Catch LA, hubs and I decided to wander around West Hollywood. I wanted to stop by Chloe to pre-order this must have summer handbag I’d seen everywhere. As we walked in the boutique on Melrose Place, I saw this beauty displayed.

Love At First Sight

Hubs had no idea what bag I was talking about, but when we walked in, it was the first thing that caught my eye. Running toward it, I grabbed the beauty off the display and said “this is it!” The reaction from hubs was “oh that’s just adorable.” While hubs never tells me how I should dress, we do disagree on fashion occasionally. So, when his immediate reaction was positive, I knew I had to have it.

Next to the display was a small sign that said “available for pre order.” When I asked the sales associate to put me down, she said “hold on, let me check something before I say anything.” This got me super excited. Turns out, they had one in stock in the exact color I wanted. It just arrived the day before. So, After spying two other items I wanted as they wrapped up my new summer handbag, I paid and got out of there before spending any more. Totally did not help that Hubs had me try on the cutest pair of sunglasses, which I am now obsessing over. I’m sure I’ll be back for them and the booties I’ve been thinking of for months.

The Must Have Summer Handbag

In case you haven’t seen this adorable new Chloe Nile handbag around Instagram, blogs, and magazines, this is the latest design from Chloe. While Chloe is defiently a luxury brand, I love the effortless and youthful designs from them. My first designer handbag that I choose for myself was a Chloe. I loved that bag to death and wore it to death as well. My mom bought it for me when I was living in NYC. There are a lot of sentimental memories attached to my first Chloe handbag. Chloe makes aesthetically pleasing pieces that are also functional. I’m never disappointed with my purchases.

PROS and CONS

With any designer purchase, there are pros and cons. Here are my thoughts after the first few days.

PROS:

  • small and lightweight
  • comes with a detachable crossbody strap, perfect going from day to night
  • sturdy
  • different design
  • leather seems to hold up pretty well

CONS:

  • just small enough to not fit my iPhone 7 plus with the lumi case on it.
  • barely fits my phone without the case

Honestly, the only thing that isn’t the greatest about this bag is my phone situation, but I also love how small it is. The bag fits my card case, keys, lip balm, and blotting sheets, which is all I really need. I bought the handbag knowing that I’d use it for events and evenings, so it’s perfect for my summer handbag needs. Plus, to be honest, my phone is usually in my hand, not in my bag.

    I love your Chloe bag and the muted grey is just perfect!
    Have always wanted a Chloe bag but undecided with the designs :p

    Ooo that bag looks gorgeous! I’ve been having a real bad moment lately where I just want to spend all my money on bags but I need to find some that are a little more affordable because the ones I’m loving lately come with a hefty price!

    I love this bag but I do think for me I’d need something a tiny bit bigger.

      I use to carry only huge bags, but my shoulder and back was starting to hurt, so I had to stop. I still have a few large totes for those long days, lol.
