Spring-Summer A-Z; A, Accessories.

Specifically of the bag kind but since B was already taken, Accessories will have to do because a bag is an accessory. Get me..lol.

I’m a lover of the oversized bag, the bigger the better considering I carry near enough everything with me, because you just never know when you need an extra pair of tights. But the summer months are nearly upon us. Hang tight love we are almost there. Come the summer and come the time to lighten the load; banish the oversize bags for something cute with a pep of pastels…its the summer you’re allowed to be frivolous a little. Rid yourself of the baggage, the sun is hot enough or at least it will be. Here are my picks for the perfect pastel purses as the temperatures rise…

Perfect Pistachio by Proenza Schouler.

The Bags of Summer Proenza

I am now of the opinion that every woman needs a pistachio purse in her summer collection. Specifically pistachio with gold hardware detail because never has a colour combination looked so divinely cute. This purse from the genius duo at Proenza Schouler packs a mean compact punch. Staying true to their signature cool, the double duty detachable chain strap, back zip compartment, double main compartments, makes this an extra functional mini chunk of perfection.

Cool Cobalt by Loeffler Randall

The Bags of Summer

Loeffler Randall has become one of those really cool brands famed for their really cool bags without kicking up a lot of fuss about it. I love that. Their Rider bag is something of a cult classic, there’s something understatedly unique about it, the design is precise but soft to the touch making it a perfect blend of whatever two adjectives will substitute for cool and stylish. Top handle, double gusset compartments, adjustable shoulder strap, discreet front pocket, four card slots on the inside; travel card, credit card, I.D card, Library card…, three pockets, signature push lock and two functional buckles at the back for additional secure fastening to bikes etc. This is a bag made with the city slicker in mind. As I said, one very cool bag.

Mint Condition by Raoul

The Bags of Summer Raoul

The Ursula bag from Raoul is one of those that fits into mom’s closet as well as your own. Simple in aesthetic but so darlingly appealing. The light mint colour gives it a bit of a romantic flair. Adjustable strap, accented with silver hardware detail, two fully lined internal compartments and a clasp front fastening there’s a soft swishness to it, a nice classy touch.

Pretty in Pink by Marc by Marc.

The Bags of Summer Marc by Marc

They call it rose but we’ll call it pink. Its probably more power pink…oh well. Aside from the summer bag, every woman needs a pretty pink bag. This is a perfectly pretty pink bag from none other than my baby daddy Marc. How I love thee. The Lil Ulkita bag has been a staple in the Marc by Marc Jacobs family for several seasons now and its little wonder why. Its a pretty ball of perfection wrapped up in cotton candy sweetness. Grained leather with gold hardware accents gives it a bit of a sweet tough edge. Magnetic fastening, detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, top handle with a perfect drop to fit right in the nook of your arm, printed Marc Jacobs lining and two pockets for cell phones and credit cards. Don’t be deceived by her appearance this baby is roomy inside.
