Summer is right around the corner, y’all! With Memorial day and the long-weekend only a few days away, it’s time to get my summer go-to bag in shape with the necessities, and this summer I’m keeping things classic with a Coach crossbody saddle bag.
Since I just got back from a trip, Rick and I are planning on spending the long-weekend around home. In summer holidays past, we’ve taken day trips to the beach or my family’s farm, so that might be something we do this weekend.
Fact of the matter is, when we take these short trips, I pack my necessities in a small overnight bag (if needed) and a roomy purse to carry along in the car ride. Enter the perfect saddle bag for fun summer adventures, a Coach glovetanned leather crossbody.
I’ve tossed in my necessities, my wallet, of course, some cosmetics including lipstick and lip balm; and in the Houston humidity and heat, you’ll never catch me without water. And I’m ready for whatever the day throws at me with my classic crossbody. Even better, it’s constructed so nicely that it really doesn’t get heavy feeling on my shoulder or around my neck.

Did you know the saddle bag is one of Coach‘s original designs? The iconic brand is celebrating their 75th year anniversary this year, so it’s only fitting that Coach re-release their ‘authentic, authentic’ bag design.
So, in the spirit too of my upcoming wedding, I decided to a have a little fun with the ‘something old’ and ‘something new’ mantras – the something old being the classic saddle bag style and the something new being my soon-to-be new initials, ACH.
I know my Coach crossbody is going to be a staple in my closet, not just this summer season or fall, but for years to come. In the meantime, catch my Coach saddle bag on my shoulder for summer and grab your classic monogrammed Coach bag, here.
