Leslie Loves...{1.11}

It's no secret that I love a good handbag. I've spent the past couple of weeks trying to find a fabulous bag for spring/summer, but there are just SO.MANY.TO.CHOOSE.FROM! {The crazy lady who wrote the previous blog post about grammar might feel a bit of anxiety because that sentence ends with a preposition...ha!} I decided to devote this week's "Leslie Loves..." post to some of my favorite handbag options for Spring/Summer 2014. 

I'm not even going to disclose how much time Rachael and I have spent shopping online for the perfect spring/summer bag, but I hope our handbag wishlist will help reduce the time you have to spend searching for a compliment-worthy tote/satchel/clutch/hobo. {P.S. I still don't have the perfect "r" word, but I'm thinking perhaps "Rachael Regards..." or "Rachael Reveres..." Either way, you get the point, right?}
