Yes, I was rocking the Transparent Trend in the Spring and I’m rocking it right into Summer. I now have an entire collection of transparent bags, 3 to be exact: this Staud Shirley bag, this Mango Bag that’s currently on sale and this tote with an amazing amber handle. I also just noticed that I feature each bag in my last 3 outfit post, just take a look here and here. I’m actually looking to add this one to the collection as well. I don’t know what it is about a transparent bag, but I guess it’s that it goes with just about anything. I’m actually not a bag person and am that friend who stuffs my keys and lipstick in friends bags when we go out for dinner or a night out. I can’t even tell you how pissed I was when I once lost a brand new Stila Fiery Lipstain because I didn’t realize there was a hole in my denim jacket pocket last year.

GET INTO TRANSPARENT BAGS & ACCESSORIES
I figure I’m an adult now and well into my 30s, so I may as well be a little more responsible and actually have a few bags, purses and totes for those moments that absolutely call for them. I can no longer depend on the flimsy pockets of my favorite denim jackets or of my favorite dress (the main reason I buy dresses with pockets). I like to spice up my transparent bags by putting smaller designer bags or boxes in them. On this occasion I’m rocking the very popular and well made Staud Staud Bag with a Chanel Box (that my prized Chanel Compact Mirror came in). Make sure to check out my Chanel Unboxing Video for more details on a that! I also use a favorite Balenciaga shopping bag that my favorite perfume, B. Balenciaga came with. It’s a pretty fun way to hide your goods and shout out the brands you own and love.
Note, how I also went overboard with the transparent Rachel Comey earrings and Who What Wear x Target Sandals. I swear whenever I wear these sandals I get so many compliments on them. I hope you got them while you could. If not here are a few transparent sandals that I’ve been digging here, here and of course here.
My go-to Summer Trend is definitely a little transparency. What’s your’s?
