Moderate handbags are having a moment. The days of needing a flashy bag with a premier designer name plastered all over it, are gone. With the rise of the anonymous handbag, and the quest for quality over name, IT bags priced under $1000 are the ultimate status symbol to carry this year. Love that!

Spring 2023 is all about chic shoulder bags, top handle satchels which are small in stature, top handle bucket bags, straw or natural fibers, hobo bags, and moon shaped bags. Thankfully, there are fabulous handbags in these categories priced well under $1000. In fact, they are from brands and designers with a “cool factor,” making them recognizable to those who know. Of course, those who know, are all that matters.

Well, we finally got a taste of spring weather. Of course, now we are back to cold temperatures. It was nice while it lasted! I was able to wear a little bit from my spring capsule. Unfortunately, I am back into my winter wardrobe. Fingers crossed spring starts soon! It sure is cold this year!

To combat the cold weather, this fabulous tweed blazer is on trend for spring, and it provides some warmth, especially with a long sleeve tee underneath. I love pairing mine with a small shoulder bag, or this classic satchel.

Spring and summer nail polish colors are hot right now. They help cheer up a grey day. Love that!

This spring sweater is perfect for moderate temperatures, and it looks chic with this ivory bag, hoop earrings, a classic bracelet, summer nail polish, and straight leg jeans. Love!

Spring 2023 fitness routine

pictured: running shoes /

Spring is here! This means it is time to revamp my fitness routine and get moving! Normally in the springtime, I would add an outdoor workout. This year, spring has not sprung. It is still cold outside, and we are getting so much rain! So, for spring 2023 I have decided to keep my workout indoors until further notice.

I still have planter fasciitis, but thankfully, I have it under control, so it isn’t too debilitating. Inside my shoes, I replace the inserts with orthotics to give myself the arch support I need to stay relatively pain free. It works most of the time.

It is important to have a good mix of cardio, interval training, and strength training in any fitness routine. So, without further ado, here is my spring 2023 fitness routine.

Monday: BodyCombat (cardio)

Tuesday: Mat Sculpt (strength)

Wednesday: Spin (interval)

Thursday: Vinyasa Yoga

Friday: Rest and walk 30 minutes outside (weather permitting)

Saturday: Weights and core

Sunday: Walk 30 minutes

This is an easier routine than I normally would schedule, but since I am trying to get my foot pain under control, I am doing exercises which are mostly pain-free. Finger crossed this works! I am not one to rest, so this is my alternative.

What type of routine are you doing for your spring fitness?
