Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence
I love handbags! I have to be careful or I will buy too many. They are such a great way to pop an outfit and a great accessory to transition into spring which begins about now. Though you may still be in cooler weather, a colorful handbag with a neutral look is a softer way to say…I am ready for spring!
I do not own many colors other than neutral bags. But I do have a red, a navy, a green, the multi-colored snake clutch from the first picture, and an orange. I also love metallic bags. The bags in the pictures I have owned for years. There is a Marc Jacobs tote below in military green which is tormenting me at night!!
Do not worry about matching your shoes to the bag…mismatched pattern is acceptable as long as the colors are in the same family!
Below, I have selected some bags I would consider for warmer weather styles. The blouse I am wearing from Chicos is pictured below in a navy. The color I am wearing is called Grape Leaf. The Eileen Fisher pants below are the same ones I am wearing here…they just show below in black. Eileen Fisher has a new creamy white called Bone…and I love it. I highly recommend it as an addition to your closet this year. I have not purchased it yet, but plan to. The jacket above is new to my wardrobe from Chicos; however, I bought it on clearance and I think it is sold out.
I tend to like tote size bags, but petite Jennifer likes a smaller bag. Let’s go see what she has to say on the subject today at A WELL STYLED LIFE.
Do you change handbags often to match outfits or stick mainly to one bag? Changing it out occasionally can really be fun!
