According to Punxsutawney Phil, spring is around the corner! This means it is time to ensure our spring capsule wardrobes are put together, and ready for some sunshine! Love!

The spring 2024 season is all about high quality handbags we can all wear year after year. The anonymous handbag is an investment bag we can get a low cost-per-wear out of, as well as pass down through the generations. Love that!

Handbag capsule wardrobes for spring shoulder include satchels, small totes, hobo bags (mine didn’t make the photo, but will definitely be in rotation!), soft bags, neutral hues, classic black, and fun shades of springtime hues such as yellow, blue, green, and red. Anything goes when it goes it comes to handbag style, the one rule of thumb is to forego loud logos.

When putting together your spring handbag capsule wardrobe, shop your closet first. Pull out those small and mini totes, hobo bags, small bright bags, chain strap shoulder bags, all types of satchels including bowling bags, doctor bags, structured satchels and slouchy satchels. Any type of satchel will do! Then, shop for a timeless style you are missing which can be enjoyed this season and beyond.

Which bags are you including in your spring 2024 handbag capsule wardrobe?

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring has sprung! Well, maybe not officially. . .although the blossoms outside would like to argue that spring is here! This has put me in the mood for cheery, spring hues. How about you?

Happy colors such as yellow, green, blue, and pink are hot right now. So, this is the perfect time to add a pop of fun to your ensembles with either a handbag in a bright color, spring nail polish, or a cheery hued top.

Timeless style and the anonymous handbag continue to dominate the street style landscape as we head towards the spring season, so continue to invest in pieces which are classic and will give you longevity in your wardrobe. Don’t fall for the social media hype about “Mob Wife” and “Gossip Girl” aesthetics, those are fun online but they aren’t the reality on city streets. In real life, people are wearing classic, investment styles.

Which styles are you loving for the upcoming spring season?

Thanks for stopping by!

View from Twin Peaks

It was a beautiful day in the city last weekend, so we started our morning at the deYoung Museum. After enjoying “Fashioning San Francisco,” exhibit, we went to Mel’s by USF for a 1950’s inspired lunch complete with milkshakes and a vanilla coke. I highly recommend the chicken soup and the hamburgers. They have been a favorite of mine from Mel’s since I was a teenager!

After lunch, we headed up to Twin Peaks to check out the views. Can you believe I have never been to the top of Twin Peaks before? I even lived up thee after graduating from college but never made the trek up to the top. It was definitely something I needed to do! The views were beautiful. You can see all the way around the bay depending on where you are standing. The photo below shows the view towards Marin, and the one above shows the view towards downtown San Francisco. It was really pretty!

If you are local, and like me, haven’t been to the top of Twin Peaks, I highly recommend playing tourist and going up there! The view is amazing, and it really is something we should all do; especially when we are local! haha

Finers crossed this beautiful spring weather becomes the norm, and the storms dissipate. Happy almost-spring!

Thanks for stopping by!
