All Signs Point to Spring

The signs are unmistakable:  longer days, flowers blooming, warmer weather, hay fever.  Yes, Spring is upon us.

This means, it's also time to think about my warmer weather clothing and accessories.

I am in the market for a casual, spring-time bag.  I am on the lookout for some cute sandals, some versatile dresses, some functional cardigans.  But first, a cute, casual, versatile bag.

Considering Vanessa Bruno's Cabas:

I love its size, its slouchiness, and there isn't a logo in sight!

Fanny Packs

Fanny (comma) Pack - two words that conjure up a specific image. I envision a pale tourist, with a fanny pack tied to their waist, for daily essentials, such as money, a map, sunscreen, etc. Those days are gone, as the new generation of fanny packs is chic and stylish.  Look below, and you'll also notice my inclination towards animal prints.
