Carry the Rainbow: Trend - Handbags Are All About Color.


I've been collecting pictures of must have bags for the past month because I am on the hunt for one. As a girl thats always on the go I need one that's sturdy, that can hold a lot - including my computer and still looks good. I fall in love with all sorts of amazing bags, this Proenza Schouler literally puts a smile on my face. I am not sure what style I really want, but I do know that I want something with some color.


I called this picture my blue heaven because its like carrying around a little piece of heaven with you. Blue is a favorite color of mine especially when its in a royal form. It can elevate your jeans, highlight blue eyes or just add some color without overwhelming a look.


I know Yellow is hard for a lot of people to wear. There are some yellow hues that make me look like I am sick. But who doesn't want to wear a little bit of sunshine. Thats why I love the idea of a yellow clutch. You can still relish in the color without having to literally wear the color.





Orange is the color to invest in this Spring, its only too bad that I can't find a top, dress or skirt that looks good on me. When I saw this little beauty strapped over this outfit, it was like a little epiphany. This is just big enough for my phone on the days I don't need to lug around my computer. Yes those do exist.


If you're like me you have already started to plan for spring - just because handbags are for everyday use it doesn't mean that you have to play it safe. Carry a little bit of fun with you.


Anyone have any handbag recommendations?

I totally agree! After years of searching for the perfect black bag it is now all about the color. I think my choice is cobalt blue, the color goes with everything and hides the dirt. I am dying over a blue and orange one by Milly but it is in the $300+ bracket and I don't see myself springing for it. Love, A

I actually just got done talking about how difficult it is to find bright orange clothes that look right, but it's a beautiful thing in accessories. My best solution bag-wise is my bright orange Built NY laptop sleeve. Check out pics here. As often as I use my laptop in public, it almost as visual a part of my outfit as my bag. Good luck on your hunt!
