Happy birthday to me! One of my favorite ways to celebrate my birthday is with fashion pieces in my birthstone – emerald. Do you have a friend, family member or significant other who’s birthday is in the month of May? A birthstone-inspired handbag is both a personal and stylish gift she will absolutely love. This year my mother gifted me my Elizabeth James ‘Micro Cynnie’ Crossbody in emerald a little bit early. Emerald colored bags are great because you can wear them all year long – they are not too bright for fall and not too dull for a fun spring color. A handbag is my favorite way to wear emerald as it can add a pop of color to any look. If you have any other emerald inspired bags you love, share them in the comments – I would love to check them out!
