Pretty pastels are sweet treats

Sweet treats! Pretty pastels for spring 2017


Pastels? Yes, please!

According to Women’s Wear Daily in the article Spring 2017 Fashion Trend: Pastels, “Spring’s prettiest palette comes in a pastel array of light and airy pieces sure to soften any wardrobe.”

Nowhere is this “softness” more important than in the selection of a spring handbag. A hefty black leather tote or earthy, fringed crossbody bag simply look out of place with delicate spring florals or pale shades of gray, taupe or ivory.

Instead, indulge this spring in a sweet treat: a new handbag in a yummy, Easter Egg-inspired shade. From lemon chiffon to mint, guava to bubblegum, there are so many choices.

Above are just a few of my personal faves in a variety of hues and price ranges.

Spring can’t get here soon enough.
