I had been on the lookout for a black everyday bag for quite some time now, and I found the most amazing black saddle bag by Cole Haan from Zappos.
Right now, life is insane, and I constantly have to have both of my hands free everywhere we go. When we head to the grocery store, the park, or even to swim class, my hands and arms are always full of kids, and kid things. Carseats, diaper bags, bottles, snacks… you name it.
That being said, if I am going to wear a purse, it has to be a cross-body. I can’t allow for any of my hands to be occupied by anything other than my kids… and this amazing black saddle bag from Cole Haan from Zappos is my new go to. It is SO much bigger than it looks, it is convenient, and it is adorable too!
For whatever reason, I have a ton of tan and brown bags, but when it comes to black bags, I never seem to have enough. I like to shop for quality when I buy a new handbag, so when I went to pick out a new black one, I knew Cole Haan would be the brand. Not only are their bags durable, and stand the test of time, but they are beautiful as well.
What I really love about this specific bag is that the front snaps, leaving all your belongings secure, but the back has an easily accessible open pocket. I love this feature because I always stow my keys and lipgloss back there, and this way I am never fumbling for them when I head to my car with my hands full. The back pocket is 100% my favorite part of this purse. I also love the whipstitching detail. It is so beautiful and gives it that little bit of western flair that I love so much.
