What it is: American Eagle by Payless, $23  

How to wear it: With simple stripes and an oversized bow, this bag is just begging to be taken out on the town. Pair it with dark dark jeans, a silk tunic and red heels (if you are feeling flirty) for a fabulous and oh-so-feminine date night look or wear it with a camel crewneck sweater and relaxed jeans for a more weekend-chic twist.

Why I love it: I am just loving all this cross-season shopping. With pieces like this bow bag, my summer closet is starting to get nice and stocked. I am looking forward to toting this beauty around on long summer days over a crisp white shirt-dress with a braided belt and tan basket weave sandals. Until then, it is a perfect complement to my go-to date night outfit — and yes, I always wear red heels! 

Bonus: Wear it three ways: Long on the shoulder, cross-body or tuck in the strap for an instant super-chic clutch (my personal favourite).
