about coming into a new season is the new seasonal styles and I particularly
love seeing the new handbag styles. During the fall I dove into the much loved
studded bag trend but I am retiring it for the summer (cheerio for now, studded
beauty) in opts for something a bit lighter and brighter.
been shopping around for the perfect bright bag for a while when Proenza Schouler contacted
me and asked if I would take a look at their website & pick out my
favourites, and pick ‘em out I did! More so than anything else I was struck by
the gorgeous bags on their website and the fabulous selection of spring
colours. Many of you know (or if you’re new to my blog, you’ll soon learn) that
some of my favourite spring colours are lilac, neon yellow & blush
toned pinks and Proenza
Schouler offers beautiful bags in all
those gorgeous colours.
Bag in “Pinot Noir“:
This light maroon bag is typically one that I’d go for during the fall months
but I actually think it could be worn beautifully during the warmers seasons as
well. The colour is romantic (like #2 – the blush toned pink bag) so I can see
it being worn for a romantic summer night out – date night!
WITH: I would wear this bag with a blush-pink dress (to play on the romance
theme), brown leather accessories& amp; brown sandal heels.
in “Piglet”: I am a huge fan of blush tones so this bag
caught my eye immediately. This particular bag stands out as a handbag that
would be great to have as a summer piece but also one that could be
transitioned into the fall & winter months as well. It’s a beautiful
light pink tone which to me just screams romantic summer.
IT WITH: I would wear this bag with stark white dress, aqua accessories
& a pair of cognac-brown sandals–can’t get much more summery than that!
in “Orange”: Orange has been a huge trend colour this
season and I always feel that a great way to add in trendy colour is with a
great handbag or accessory.
IT WITH: This orange handbag would look great paired with a hot pink maxi
skirt, white top & aqua accessories – perfect for a day at the beach,
walking the seawall with the fella or going shopping with the gals!
“Sunshine”: I’ve been obsessed with neon yellow this
spring (see how I’ve worn neon yellow here,here,here& amp; here)& amp; I know I’ll be rocking this trend all
throughout the summertime as well. For quite some time I’ve been on the prowl
for a neon clutch bag and it seems finally I have found the perfect one.
IT WITH: I can definitely see myself rocking this bag with a pair of
high-waisted distressed jean shorts, a flowy white blouse, a bold yellow+pink
necklace & a pair of sandal wedges.
in “Lavender”: Lilac/lavender has been one of my all-time
favourite colours ever since I was a kid & has been worn quite often
here on the UU (see my lilac styles here &here). I’ve personally always loved this colour because I
thought it looked kind of neat with my complexion/eye colour and so it’s always
been a colour I’ve naturally gravitated to. This bag to me is just so
beautiful. The colour is great, the shape is great and I can see it being a
really versatile bag to have during the summer months.
IT WITH: I would wear this bag with a yellow skirt or dress& amp;
bag in Emerald: Bright emerald bluey-green is a colour that is popular
each summer because it emulates a tropical beach& amp; the beautiful azure
blue ocean. This is a colour I always have a lot of fun mixing and matching
during the summertime because it is just such a bold summer colour.
IT WITH: Pairing this bag with a white dress, orange accessories, a
floppy brown hat & sandals would look stunning for a day at the beach.
