After the brutal and seemingly endless winter we endured, summer cannot get here fast enough.  This year, I’m looking to go extra bright and overly cheerful to make up for the dreary past.  I’m loving these vibrant woven and embroidered bags with all their embellishments; pom poms, paillettes, coin fringe and tassels!

Styling Ideas:

I’d wear this clutch with an easy fitting white dress and neutral flat sandals out to brunch.  To the beach, an oversized white button down over a bikini would pair perfectly with this backpack.  And out running errands, a crocheted top, faded cut offs and this bag!

Growing up, my mother rarely left home without being primped, primed and polished.  She always looked pretty and ladylike and I’ve come to really appreciate that classic style.  The Chanel quilted flap bag and this blush pleated skirt are timeless and elegant.  To bring it up to date, I paired it with this high low top in a graphic black and white print.  I love how the long back provides a lot of movement as you walk.
