For years, I was the girl that loved big handbags. I kid you not, for the longest time I carried half my dresser in my bag. Instead of putting just my essentials in my bag I carried all my makeup, makeup brushes, magazines, an agenda, two wallets, a hair brush, hair accessories, etc. You name it and I probably had it in my bag. Now that I’m older I’m much more minimal. The most I carry is my phone, a compact, a lip stick and my keys. With that said, I like smaller bags much better now. When you don’t carry much with you on a daily basis a bigger bag is pointless. Smaller bags keep all my essentials organized and I don’t have to go searching for anything.
Now that I keep an eye open for smaller bags, I came across the Botkier Sky Mini “Valentina” Bag. I’ve always loved the “Valentina” collection by Botkier but this bag is adorable and the color is stunning. This is a beautiful and perfect bag to use during the Spring and Summer months! I love that the bag is small and that the shoulder strap is detachable. It’s perfect to hold my essentials and I love that I have the option to use it has a shoulder bag or a clutch. Knowing me, I would probably carry it as a clutch more often but the color is so pretty that the bag would look great carried either way.
Obviously the color of the bag is hard to match when it comes to wardrobe. However, the stock photo of the model is a perfect example of an outfit that looks great with the bag. Black and white always go with everything especially pretty colors like Sky. I’m a huge fan of this bag and the price is great! I hope Botkier keeps designing the “Valentina” into different pieces because the collection is breathtaking!
