Even though I work inside for the majority of the day, I was acutely aware that there was actually sunshine outside today. On top of that, it was in the upper 50s and I didn’t need my huge winter coat when I left the office. When it is almost March in Illinois, days like this are a welcomed breath of fresh air. They leave us longing in hopes for spring. Typically they are a tease only to be followed by more gray coldness, Illinois weather is just like that. Nevertheless, I’m running with my spring fever tonight. We vacuumed the house and got to the laundry that was starting to loom over us like a stretch of mountains, both dirty and clean.
More importantly, I’m in the mood for a new purse with a pop of color and oh my goodness there are so many pretties to choose from right now! I’ve rounded up my top 12 favs below -and better yet, they start in the low $30s and don’t go past $100. (PS – I get a small commission through clicks and purchases made through this post but these are all self-selected by me and items that I would personally buy). Some of these are even marked over 50% off, I love a good sale. I’m in love with the color of the Sondra Roberts Faux Leather Hobo but I really need something that I can use for work too -so something bigger for electronics and paperwork. Let’s be real, I’ll probably be using this as a diaper bag as well. You’d probably be appalled at everything that I have stashed in my current purse collection…sometimes I am myself [insert woman emoji with shoulders shrugged and both hands up]. Anyway, I decided to go with the first one pictured below and ordered it in blush. -They have 3 colors in this and they are all beautiful, the sea foam is similar to the color of the Sondra bag. I think I’ll like the size of this one, the fact it can be worn multiple ways, and the zipper. Can’t wait to show you once it comes in! ….I’ll make sure to zip up all the junk I stash inside it. If anyone has any other suggestions for spring, I’d love to see them -especially in the pastel family!!!
