The spring 2023 season is all about shoulder bags, hobo bags, small top handle bags, and the anonymous handbag. While I am on the hunt for the perfect top handle bag, my spring handbag capsule is full of my shoulder bags and hobo bags which are small or medium in size. They are also my bags without obvious logos.

While many handbags have a logo on them, since designers and brands like to identify themselves, the idea this season is not to wear a bag which screams the designers’ name. If the logo is large, and part of the design, then it is too loud for spring 2023. The idea is to have a bag people will have look closely at to identify, or even ask you about. That is the anonymous handbag.

In addition to the anonymous handbag, the size this season is small to medium. While the runways have also shown oversized bags you can fit the kitchen sink inside, the streets have not taken to the trend. If you want to try and bring it to the streets, power to you, but remember, you will need to allocate extra time in your schedule for finding your car keys. Those bags are huge!

Shoe capsule wardrobe spring 2023

My spring 2023 shoe capsule wardrobe is slim this year, because to be frank, it is still very cold outside! I am wearing rain boots and sneakers more than anything else these days with all of this rainfall and unseasonably cold weather. That being said, I do have spring shoes in my archives which are both classic and on trend for the spring 2023 season.

I am sure you know about investment shopping and investment dressing. These loafer mules, and ballet flats, are investment pieces I purchased many years ago. They are always in style, and this year, the ballet flats are a hot trend. Love that! If you haven’t invested in a good pair of loafer mules or ballet flats, I highly recommend finding a beautiful pair to invest in this season. You will find yourself reaching for them year after year; then you won’t need to buy new shoes every year since you will already have a classic pair in your closet. While you may spend more in the short run on an investment pair of shoes, you end up saving money in the long run by not needing to replace them every year.

In addition to loafer mules and ballet flats, slides are still a hot trend as we move into both spring and summer, as well as street sneakers. While disco platform pumps are also a hot trend, you won’t be seeing me in those. I need to be closer to earth.

As you shop for spring, look for square toes too. The square toe is a huge trend in footwear right now, and you will see it a lot in the coming seasons.

These street sneakers are super fun since they are in the color of 2023. The retro high-top style is also a fun vibe which works well with the 1980s and 1990s influence we are seeing in fashion right now.

Hopefully the rain tapers off, so I can wear all these shoes and not get wet! haha

Happy spring! I normally organize my capsule wardrobe a couple weeks before the season begins, but this year, the weather has been so wintery, spring was not on my radar and my capsule wardrobe was a little slow! In order to adjust to this year’s wintery weather pattern, my spring capsule wardrobe is a bit warmer than in spring season’s past.

This spring, I am incorporating knits which I will wear a layering tee underneath. In addition, these knits can easily be topped with a blazer or jacket to stay warm. Why is it so cold this year? Ugh. . .

Thankfully, blazers are still a hot trend as menswear continues to dominate the runways and influence the streets. This blazer has been a mainstay in my wardrobe over the past three years, as it is a classic tweed blazer which plays well with any color scheme. Love that!

As I move away from skinny jeans, I have fallen in love with the jeans from Express since they offer short lengths. You can read my full review here. These two pairs in the photo above will be perfect for the spring season.

Classic jewelry is always in style, and this year it is the ultimate jewelry style to wear. I am in love with these silver pieces from Lois Hill, you can read more about the designer here.
