In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-fashion steal, plus tips on how to shop for bargains that don't look cheap. This week, we’re talking bags. Make sure to check out my blog for more fashion inspiration!

April showers bring May flowers. And it’s not just nature that’s in bloom! Florals are one of the biggest fashion trends of the season. The easiest way to work the trend into your wardrobe is with accessories.

We’ve talked about cross-body bags before in this column. I think the ease of a hands-free accessory is especially great during warmer months when you’re walking outside. While there are many different floral options, I prefer a faux leather. It looks more expensive than canvas and cost half the price of the real thing.

Another thing to look for is hardware. I especially like the gold chain on this Dolce Girl bag (now on sale for only $33.60 at It comes in a convertible satchel style too ($47.60), which is great if you’re in the market for a bigger bag.

While, of course, you can pair the print with solids, I like mixing prints! The easiest way is with a color pattern and black and white. Another part I like about these bags? The black leather means you can wear it into Fall. Talk about getting a bang for your buck!
