Here is one of the best Botkier bags ever. Monica Botkier designs her bags with “on-the-go lifestyle of New York women in mind,” but the “Charlotte” would suit almost any woman anywhere. Pebbled leather in this warm grey is the most amazing everyday option for ultimate versatility and reduced wear and tear. You’d have to actually put in some effort to make it look dirty. Be free with your color palette and your jewels – unimposing pale gold hardware can sometimes read as silver. The tab-thru-loop closure is clean and simple yet full of personality, and the interior has a center zip and pocket under the flap for complete organization. A perfectly plump east-west shape, just begging to be packed, makes me want to wear this with the shoulder strap, instead of using the top handle. I just want to wear this bag, period. On ShopBop for $575.
Pair with: Who says neutral has to be boring? Not Botkier or Giambattista Valli. Their metal-cuffed flat beige sandals, decked out in leopard-print canvas at the toe and a gold back zipper, also perk up your daily gear. On Net-a-Porter for $900.
