Don't Forget To Put Your Bag On!

{This is my summer dream bag the Brahmin Vittoria rose satchel. It is so feminine with the leather roses and it's got great structure. Just perfect for my taste. I adore it!} 
As the weather warms up my desire to own a new handbag becomes stronger than ever! This comes from a myth from the past that one should change over to a new handbag at the start of each season. I have always looked forward to this change! I seem to get bored with the handbag I am carrying waaayyy before the switch over of the seasons. I never used to be one to change handbags according to my outfits........until now! Just in case you didn't know, a handbag is no longer just a bag you carry with your personal belongings. A handbag is part of your ensemble. You actually wear a handbag. That is why it is very important that you see you take a look at yourself in a full length mirror holding the handbag the way you would carry it. Is is too big for your body or to small? Is it old and ragged? Is it a boho style bag while the outfit you are wearing is more tailored? These are just a few questions you need to ask yourself when choosing a handbag. And don't be afraid to spend a little extra money on a bag. The bag is very much a focal point. Everyone will notice it!

This little dream come true is the galaxy bag from J Crew. I love the sparkle that this gives off in the summer sun!

This beautiful bella camel glazed leather bag by Lauren Merkin is stunning! I love the grommets, the size, and the vintage look. This glazed leather has a gorgeous sheen to it. 

Talbot's Beacon Hill handbag collection is to die for. I love the structure of this bag along with the gold hardware. And if you know me, then you will know that I am ALL about the color YELLOW this spring!
