12 Handbags Under $150

The start of back to school and the end of summer are both great excuses to find a new handbag. While I’m not heading back to school this year (ah, graduation), I’m always looking to update my wardrobe this time of year.

A handbag is one of the easiest ways to elevate your wardrobe. It’s fun to change it up, which is why I always recommend having a rotation of handbags in your closet.

If you’re looking for a new handbag (without a hefty price tag), below are 12 handbags under $150. We’ve got Old Navy, Longchamp, Ann Taylor and more in this post. I think the Ann Taylor bag is my favorite. There is truly something for every budget!

Oh, and if you are wondering what Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B. Tote Mini I picked (see last week’s post), I went with the quartz color, which is like a blush pink. It wasn’t one of the two that I was originally eyeing, but I love it!

    Ugh, whenever I see the words back to school I cringe since I’m not going back #postgradblues. Love the collection!

      I think the key to helping with our #postgradblues is to shop like we’re heading back to school anyways! Thanks as always for stopping by, Elizabeth.

      Longchamps are such great options for girls who love to carry a lot around. Thanks for reading, Kenzie!

      That is the down side to a tote. I’m hoping my mini MAB tote from Rebecca Minkoff will help with that. Thank you!

    Cute picks!
    I love a good bag and it doesn’t hurt if its not breaking the bank.

      Preach it! I think a generous price tag makes it harder for me to resist buying more handbags. Thanks for stopping by, Jenny!

      I agree! The Henri Bendel was one of my favorites in the collection. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks, Selena!
