The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale comes to a close this weekend, but there's still ample time to make a few solid purchases if you act fast. I've got my eyes squarely focused on the handbags — and quite frankly, you should, too! After a year and a half of not really needing a proper purse (I carried a neoprene gym bag most days of quarantine to pair with my lazy girl sweatpants or leggings), I'm finally feeling ready to splurge on a tasteful handbag that reminds me a new season is here, and we should all be dressing the part. After all, there's nothing quite like that fresh fall handbag feeling to get you back in the groove of all things autumn.

After scanning the sale, I had to share the good word that a handful of gorgeous Clare V. bags are currently discounted, and not to be missed. The luxury line has a long list of celebrity fans, including  Katie Holmes and Melissa McCarthy — and for good reason. Their smart styles are crafted in Los Angeles and make of the most supple materials, including buttery-soft leathers and rich suede. The bag evoke a dash of Parisian charm and luxury everyone can appreciate. This season, Clare V.'s offerings are (no surprise here) functional, timeless, and neutral enough to go with everything in your closet, which is why you should absolutely not sleep on this very timely sale. 

If you're having a hard time deciding, you can't go wrong with an oversized suede tote. This one is roomy enough to hold your laptop and everyday essentials, and the signature Parisian striped detail down the center of the bag is just enough to keep things interesting. With many of us heading back to the office in the coming weeks, this would be a very wise investment.

For nights out on the town or running weekend errands, you truly can't go wrong with either of these cute animal print crossbody bags, both of which feature that signature striped strap for a touch of whimsical French influence. They're sizable enough to store everything from your cell phone to other important must-haves, and bring so much more to the table than a boring black bag.
