For as long as I can remember I've had a thing for handbags. Not designer, name brand bags... but unique and "special" bags that hold a ton and make a statement. Today I'm sharing "All About That Bag" and featuring one of my favorite brands, Nena and Co. I'll be featuring other brands and bags that I carry all the time and get asked about in the coming weeks. So exciting!
About a year ago I came across Nena and Co on Instagram and fell in love with their bags. They're one of a kind, handmade and amazingly unique. When I visited their website I found out the brand is founded on social responsibility - providing jobs and training for Guatemalan artisans as well as contributing to causes such as providing purified water, granting scholarships and teaching women to birth babies with the aid of birthing kids they put together.
Nena and Co has recently launched a new kids line which has the same mission and purpose as their line of bags and accessories and when they offered to send Griffin a dress I jumped on the chance.
She's wearing this dress in a size 1/2 and it's a piece that she'll have in her closet for years to come. It's made from recycled denim and while it's big on her now, I love that she'll be able to wear it for several seasons as a dress and then as a top after that.
So, onto what made me fall in love with Nena and Co in the first place... the bags!
First up is my DayBagII. This has been an amazing everyday bag for me. The side pockets are great for bottled water (or baby bottles) and the long strap lets you wear it cross body style.
It's large enough to hold my laptop and I've lugged it to and from work, weekend activities and it was my go-to bag in Colorado this summer.
The vintage hupil textile it's made out of is incredible has worn just as well as the rest of the bag.
After I had my DayBagII for a while, she ran a sale and I picked up a Cadiz Tote.
The fabric is super thick and it's structured enough to stand up on it's own. It can hold a ton of grading, but isn't an unmanageable size either.
My most recent purchase was one of her newer styles, a Lucia Carryall.
It's the slouchiest style I have, and I love how soft and supple the leather is.
The long strap is removable and it's an easy size to carry every day.
I get compliments on these bags every time I carry them and I like how they can make a really simple outfit pop.
Nena and Co has graciously given me a $150 gift card to give to one of you - and to enter all you have to do is head over to my Instagram, follow me, Nena and Co and Nena Kids and tag three friends on my post.

So, do you own any Nena? If you do - what style do you love? If you don't, which style would you pick for yourself?
Happy Tuesday, Friends!
PS - Thank you so much to Nena and Co for gifting the adorable dress for Griffin and for providing the $150 gift card for the giveaway.
