“It’s that time of year when the winter blues are making summer feel like it can’t come too soon. This Valentino tote makes me think of summer—wearing a sundress with a straw hat and just enjoying the warm weather, but in style. The easy-to-carry shape makes it perfect for shopping or traveling, or just about anything!”

“I always appreciate a cute wicker bag for the warmer weather. This Fiveseventyfive structured clasp bag would be perfect paired with a printed dress, or when I’m throwing on jeans and these chic yellow sling-back flats.”

“Ladylike silhouettes are a huge trend this season, and this has translated to hang bags as well. I’ll be styling this Mark Cross bag with a long coat from The Row, or mixing it with more casual pieces like a hoodie from Helmut Lang.”

“I am always drawn to minimal styles. I like my bags to function with ease on a daily basis—no complicated clasps or flaps. A bucket bag is such an easy silhouette, and this version by Saint Laurent is an elevated take on the classic with the perfect design nuances. This bag plus the knee-high boots will be my spring splurges.”
