As much as I love fashion and partnering with different brands there really aren’t too many that actually make the base of their company all about giving back to the community or even partnering with charities all around the world. When I get the chance to work with a company that gives back, I jump at the opportunity. I’m excited to introduce you all to ESPEROS, a company that believes education is the key to overcoming the cycle of poverty and that it should be available to everyone. To help make this vision a reality, ESPEROS creates stylish, functional, and durable products. With every product sold, they will fund one year of education for children in the developing world.
How much do we really know about education all around the world? It’s not something I had ever put much thought into until now, It’s something I am personally trying to make a conscious effort to change and improve. ESPEROS‘ pledge is to donate one to one for every product sold which means that whenever you purchase a product from ESPEROS, you have directly funded one year of education for a child in need. And to help make this vision a reality, they have created these gorgeous leather bags I’ve featured below. AND they are ALL made in America!!
How does ESPEROS donate to these countries? Every quarter, ESPEROS makes a donation through its own foundation to Giving Partners such as The Nobelity Project and Pencils of Promise in order to maintain accountability and oversight.
ESPEROS rarely gives out promo codes for their products but they created one just for my readers, so take advantage while you can! Just enter DTKAUSTIN for 15% off of your purchase through April 30.

Let’s start with this gorgeous bucket bag. I’m going to be completely honest with y’all… I’ve never been one to love a bucket bag but I wanted to try and shoot with it anyway because it’s such a great staple. Sure enough, I fell in love and it’s my favorite bag in their entire collection, by far!! Priced at just $295, you are getting a quality, American made, leather bag.
The strap is adjustable where you can easily where this bag as a cross body or over the shoulder. The color of this particular bucket bag is Pearl. It’s not stark white but actually has a really pretty gray-ish blue hue.
This set of shots are two of my favorites! If you saw my previous blog post you know I am raving about all cutoff shorts for summer! Now don’t think you can’t dress up a pair of cutoff denim shorts. Take off those flip flops and trade them in for a cute pair of heels. Throw on a flowwy blouse to give a fancier feel. I threw on a pair of knotted heels and ESPEROS clutch to easily transition into date night!
The clutches are a must-have (in my opinion) and one of their best sellers. They are priced at $120 and have so many beautiful details. If you know me you know how much I love to compulsively smell leather products… People literally make fun of me until they realized that good leather has an intoxicating smell!! This clutch is made in a sumptuous leather that is soft to the touch and you can just smell how good the leather is! The clean silhouette makes this piece a statement on its own and the sleek size is perfect for date night.
Can I have two favorite looks?? Ok, maybe three because the next outfit is pretty amazing too! These bucket bags literally go with any and every type of outfit. I chose a gorgeous olive color to accent the chambray top and white shorts. Olive is such a great neutral that you can pair with brown, black, grey and practically any color.
Planning on a night out?? Don’t you worry, we’ve got you covered with the perfect bag! This next look is so chic you obviously have to dress it up with a classic leather clutch.
Same outfit, different colored clutch. This particular bag comes in six different colors so you are guaranteed to find that perfect match for all of your looks. I ended up shooting with the pearl, olive and this wine color shown above and loved each and every one. If you’re looking for a good summer clutch I would highly suggest going with the tan or the pearl. For a fancier feel I would definitely go for the black, wine or olive!
The one thing I love about ESPEROS is that each and every bag they have produced can be dressed up or dressed down.
