With spring just around the corner, bring on the colorful handbag trends. I am so excited for spring and even more excited for all of the spring colors. As we learned in my first post in this series (Spring Color Trends: Petal Pinks), Easter egg colored handbags are popping up everywhere and they are a great way to welcome spring. So what’s next? When I think of spring, I think of many things including flowers. However I also think of something that some people may not associate with spring — clear blue skies. There is just something about a spring sky that makes me feel connected with the world around me. It is sort of serene in a way. It makes sense to me then that a light blue handbag would have that same calming effect. In fact, I know it does! That is why I am showcasing some lovely baby blues here. You know, to provide you with a little inspiration.
Botkier Trigger Saddle Bag in Sky
Botkier is not a designer that I often associate with pastels. But the Trigger Saddle Bag sure does look inviting in this lovely shade of blue! I love the color and the complimenting silver tone hardware.
The saddle-shaped Botkier shoulder bag in glazed leather with polished studs. Long pulls hang from the magnetic front flap, and a slim pocket outfits the back. Wraparound zip at the gusset. Lined, 2-pocket interior. Adjustable shoulder strap. $248
Rebecca Minkoff Micro Perry Satchel in Bleached Blue
Rebecca Minkoff does many colors well. Pastels though, have always been one of my favorites. They always look good on Rebecca Minkoff styles though and light blue is no exception.
Zips adjust the volume of this scaled-down Rebecca Minkoff satchel rendered in pebbled leather. Concealed magnets secure the side pockets, and the top zip opens to a lined, 4-pocket interior. Double handles and optional, adjustable shoulder strap. $325
MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Multifunction Tote in Sky
Pastels do not have to come on small handbags. They look great on larger styles too, especially baby blue. It is such a versatile color, it works with more conspicuous styles like this tote.
