Spring Bag Trends

If you follow me on Pinterest (and you really should), you know I’ve been on the hunt for a spring bag. But swoon as I might for a $1000 delight, this fashionista puts a much lower price limit on bags. I kept hunting and hunting to be inspired. Then when walking in Tribeca it happened. I fell in love for $195! Thank you Rebecca Minkoff.

The canvas tote has just the right amount of neon pop. So when I wear basics and solids–such as this black and white outfit–I still look trendy and chic. The bag works back to my manicure from Scotch Nails–I got a polish change to this one called Canal Street Daisy at our blogging event this week.

Once I added the new bag, I decided to layer on some more color. A favorite necklace from the Andean Collection seems to go with everything these days.

And I’m trying out my new Hush Puppies sandals. The brand sent me over these Sagitar flats in yellow suede and I think they are mighty cute. The shoes are incredibly lightweight and how about this sunny color!

There you have it–a fun spring look that plays off of basics.
