Featherweight Champ…

If you’ll be traveling this summer, you could do worse than this pretty le Pliage nylon bag for lightweight day-to-evening wear. I love that Longchamp is now offering so many styles with a crossbody strap!

Do you switch out your bags seasonally? What kind of bag says “summer” to you?
