Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Day Bags

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

charlbot requested a few picks for colorful medium-sized day bags, so here we go:



Coach Pebbled Prairie Satchel – was $275, now $149.99

Get a load of that rich green! And I’m always a fan of bags that include both handles and a shoulder strap. This one is nice and roomy at 13.5″ x 3.75″ x 8.75″, and has enough structure and formality for work but enough sass for the weekend, too. If you don’t love this shade, 6pm has this bag in eight great colors including blush pink, yellow, red, and burgundy floral.


Aldo Moringa – was $60, now $27.55

This faux leather bag is slightly bigger at 13″ x 5.25″ x 12″, but it’s squarish shape help it feel compact. I love the addition of the large front tassel and that the flap has an easy-open magnetic snap. Also available in tan.


Cole Haan Daphne – was $350, now $154.99

I’m not a huge fan of pink, but this rosy azalea shade is hard to resist. It’s just dark enough to complement jewel tones, but still light and bright enough to work with many pastels. This tote/satchel hybrid is 14.5″ x 4″ x 10.5″, so it’s on the large side of medium-sized.


The Sak Sequoia Crossbody – was $139, now $53.76

A fabulous price for a real leather bag! If you’re looking for something a bit more casual in your day bags, this crossbody is simple enough to be classic but has thoughtful design details that keep it from being too plain. That strap is webbing, not leather, so be aware! I love this turquoise, but the bag is also available in three shades of red, chocolate brown, black, pale blue, or cream leather.


Tommy Hilfiger Mara – was $138, now $64.99

I didn’t know ol’ TH did faux leather bags, but this shopper is vegan-friendly! And has the double-brightness bonus of a contrast strap with a cobalt inner facing. This classic shape clocks in at 14″ x 5″ x 10.75″, and also comes in a darker red, navy, turquoise, tan, or black.

Sustainable resources for colorful medium-sized handbags:

  1. Etsy – I’d start here! The Leather Store has GREAT bags in roomy sizes and vibrant colors. Search around for handmade options that suit your needs.
  2. Novica – Ideal if you’re seeking colorfully printed bags, but also showcasing lovely solids. This ocean blue leather tote is stellar.
  3. Cuyana – Beautiful minimalist totes and satchels in rich colors.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful medium-sized handbags:

  1. Fossil – Classy dusty solids and fun prints. Get a load of this funky two-tone tote.
  2. Nordstrom – Covers the gamut from designer to bargain, luxe leather to top-notch faux leather. Love this Matt and Nat vegan leather satchel.
  3. eBags – Always a great resource for bags of all kinds!
