I have a thing for handbags, totes, backpacks – you get the idea. I love to change up my bag depending on what I am wearing and what season it is. There are some phenomenal must-have bags for this spring and two of them I had the chance to see up close and personal.
Here are 5 Must-Have Bags for Spring
1. Be a Jane Marvel Girl!
I am SO a Jane Marvel girl now and am a fan of these handbags for life. The brand carries handbags, travel and cosmetic bags and they help you be super stylish without breaking the bank. Sounds good to me.
First off, let me show you the bag I am now a proud owner of (and slightly in love with!). It’s called the “All Day Long” coated canvas bag.
I love large bags. I just can not carry everything I need in a small handbag. Yes, I have people ask me all the time “What DO you have in there?”. Well – makeup, sunglasses, wallet, electronic tablet, phone…you get the picture. I carry a lot of items around and this Jane Marvel bag is called the “All Day Long” bag for a reason. It is just the right size for me to fit everything I need for the day in it.
I also used it for a trip I recently went on and added a couple of magazines for the road.
Some of the features I love include the three inside pockets and the two outside pockets. It’s so much easier to answer my phone when it’s in one of the outside pockets. That’s one of my criteria for a bag. I don’t know how many times I have dug around a purse looking for my phone and then I miss the call. Has that happened to you? Yes, it’s annoying!
The material on the bag is absolutely amazing. It’s a laminated canvas, so it feels as smooth as butter. Yes, I just compared a handbag to a tub of butter. The material is long-lasting and this is a bag you can count on having in your collection for a very long time.

Forever Frogs is a new line of “design it yourself” backpacks, messenger bags, lunch sacks and drawstring bags. Yes, YOU are the designer, which means you get to express your personality. You can even add your own name to the bag. These line of bags are perfect for school, traveling, beach trips, summer camp, sleep overs….anything!
The design choices are endless. Here’s an example of a bag I designed.
You choose all of the details, from the fabric and design to the color of the straps and zipper. My 14 year old daughter has been using her Forever Frogs Messenger bag for school for a few weeks now and not only does she love it and it’s big enough to hold everything, but she has received so many compliments. Random people keep asking her “Where did you get that bag?!”
Not only are the bags themselves high quality and a bag you would be proud to own, but the story of how the company, Forever Frogs, came to fruition is pretty darn amazing and inspirational as well:
Forever Frogs was created by three moms and the best friend of an inspiring little girl, Payton who lost her battle to brain cancer at the young age of 5. A portion of all proceeds are going to the Payton Wright Foundation, created in her honor.
So, as you can see, the proceeds from the bag are well spent. It’s a bag worth owning for so many reasons. Visit their website and go design your own bag!

There are so many things that drew me to this bag. The shape, the color, the material. It’s a straw bag, but hipped up a ton! I would love to carry around this bag while wearing a gorgeous spring dress.
The Ring Straw Tote also comes in black and pink.
This handbag is a huge splurge for $880, but I had to mention it for the fun of it. It’s just so pretty! It’s a blue tote from R.B. of McD and it is gorgeous. Bright blues are a fantastic way to add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe.
Description: The classic commuter bag presented in an elegant leather silhouette and satin lined interior with leather accented center pocket. Clean leather piping along the side seams with matching leather zipper pulls. Gold plated snaps are featured on both adjustable straps. Hand painted logo added to finish.
