"green" with envy...

I made a new friend yesterday... with a green bag. Well, not exactly, just pretty much.

While chasing my kiddos around at the pool yesterday I noticed an adorable green bag sitting on a chair near mine. It was a green canvas bag with gold accents... perfect for the pool and what's more is that it was so chic, really you get away with it around town no problem.

Later in the afternoon I then also befriended a fellow mom while our four kids were playing together. Put it this way, I knew I could've been her friend when I met her bag (which I actually did first). I wasn't surprised at all when the pool closed and we rounded up our kids and our belongings that the sweet little green bag I was crushing on was hers.

It got me thinking about green bags. And really how my theory that bold accessories this season (shoes, bags, jewelry) are a neutral when perfectly paired with everyday chic items, is true.

Want to swoon with me? Don't you know I combed the internet best I can and can't find the same one she had - kudos to her (I love to be original, don't you?)... but here are some others that I could certainly live with.



How about you... would you do a green handbag?

I love green and actually have a lime green one that I used all the time a couple of summers ago. You just reminded me that I have it in my closet. It is time to get it out!

I would if it was that Kate Spade number - Slurp!

I didn't realize you're a Mom! Your precious and carefree sense of style defy "momism" - Yay for you!

P.S. - I need some tips ;)

I love the Kate Spade- I saw a smaller bag in that color at Nordstrom last week. It was so bright and the leather was lovely. I'm searching for the perfect over the shoulder bag or small scale top handle bag while my Rebecca Minkoff bag gets repaired.

@ Jess: when I was in Chicago last I saw an adorable gal with that middle Tory Burch bag slung across her whole body (with the longer strap) - normally I don't like that look, but I am becoming a believer. It looked so effortless and chic!
