Spring Bags

It’s always this time of the year when I feel like I need to put away my black handbags and get something that will add a pop of color to my outfit. I don’t want to spend too much money on a bag that I might not like in a few years so I’m looking for one that’s still good quality but not crazy expensive. I have a red Marc Jacobs bag that I love but the hardware on it makes it too heavy to carry around too much so I’m thinking about getting another red one. But I’m also leaning towards blues or purples too.

Isn’t this a pretty plum? I like the perforation too and looks like it’s a good size.
I like hobo bags, they always are big enough to carry a lot and the shoulder straps never seem to fall off my shoulders like totes do.

I’m liking the zippers of this one.
The shape of this bag is really neat and I like bags where you have the option of using a shoulder strap.
I love this bright blue/purple. It’s almost like a neon!

I’ve never really wanted a magenta bag but am really liking this one.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Kiki

This one looks like a good travel bag that you can wear cross body.

Anthropologie Precious Cobalt Sling Bag

I really like this berry color. I could see this with a lot of outfits.

Kooba Cleo

This may not be all that practical but I love the lace!

Rebecca Minkoff Lace Morning After Mini Bag

I’ve never been a light blue kind of person but this seems like it would be a good color for the spring.

Do you carry a different bag during the spring/summer or do you stick with the same bags year round?

    There are certainly bags I only carry in the summer (the bright orange Kathy van Zealand, and the white canvas from H&M.. however, most bags I'll use throughout the year depending on my mood and what I'm wearing. 🙂

    Love that Sabrina bag and the Rebecca Minkoff! Nice.

    i am a marc jacobs diehard fan . love both the studded hobo and the leola. <3 spring is definitely a time to sling a colored bag over your shoulder to match those pretty skirts and dresses

    I used to use the same bag year-round, but now that I'm using a purple bag, I feel as it's more of a "fall color" so I'm looking for a nice springy blue bag. I love the Rebecca Minkoff light blue one!

    How about a great print? There's some really nice ones out. MrB got me a print bag from Prada and I can't wait to use it.

    There are certain bags I like for certain seasons, but I love color year round. I got a purple bag for Christmas and have loved carrying it – it goes with almost everything so it's a color I recommend!

    Love so many of these! I am a purse whore. I use several of them year round but some are more season specific. I change purses constantly though. 🙂

    All of these are so great, it's hard to choose just one! I don't envy your decision making. Sadly I don't really own any colored bags 🙁 just black and white and grey and tan ones haha!

    I have a BR white perforated satchel I love using in the Spring/Summer but I need a replacement since the leather is getting worn. I really want fun statement bag in a bright color like yellow or cobalt blue!

    I like to change it around, I already started carrying around my light ivory cole haan bag!

    I think the Linea Pelle is adorable!
