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!

Flowers and stripes

I can’t believe how quickly summer is coming to an end. It seems like just yesterday I graduated and started working, and now I have three months under my belt. I’m finally starting to get this whole real world thing down, I think?!

I hope you’re enjoying this week’s edition of “What I’m Into” with a cup of coffee and getting ready for a great weekend. And if you’re reading this at you’re desk wishing it was 5 p.m., I feel you.

What you missed this week (and last) on A Pop of Pink…

J.Crew Excursion Quilted Down Vest


J.Crew Puffer Vests

Shop excursion vests here

I know it’s weird to think about fall already, but I wanted to let you know that the J.Crew excursion quilted down vest is back for another year. I bought the striped version of this vest a couple of years ago, and I get so much wear out of it. Pair it with a button down and add your favorite boots, and you’re all set.

J.Crew Factory also has the herringbone quilted puffer vest again. This year, it has a gray trim instead of black. I have last year’s version, and again, I get so much use out of it. If you decide to pick up one (or two) of these vests for yourself, here is a post that will give you some styling inspiration. There are many more on the blog, so just search the term “vest” or “J.Crew vest.”

Do you have a J.Crew vest? What colors are you looking to add this year?
