It's a Clutch Thing

There's a few things about the clutch that make it the perfect accessory. First, its compact size means you have no choice but to pare down to the basics-wallet, cell phone, keys, one or two makeup essentials. Eliminating the extra things you don't really need helps get rid of a little stress, and some weight! Secondly, clutches have to be carried by hand. Some may see this as a detriment, but I like not having to carry the extra weight around on my already tired shoulders (and it gives your hands something to do if you're nervous or feeling a little out of place). Lastly, a brightly patterned or embellished clutch can instantly take an outfit from day to night, no other changes needed! Don't believe me? Check out some of my current favorites below.

Some of the beaded ones may be more of a dream buy than a reality right now, but I'm thinking about picking up a palm tree or flamingo inspired clutch for my trip to Mexico this summer! What's your favorite? Do you carry clutches, or are you a fan of bigger bags?
