Handbags In Pantone’s Fall 2017 Colors

TGIF! What better way to celebrate by going shopping for a new handbag!

Did November 1 sneak up on anyone else? I feel like just 2 weekends ago I was wearing shorts? Now, here I am wearing my parka and drinking hot chai tea lattes. Between getting settled into my condo and being crazy busy at work, I, unfortunately, haven’t had time to blog. Which upsets me because it’s truly something I love doing. So I decided to come back and write about my favorite topic ever – handbags.

If you are new to my blog, every year I find my favorite handbags in Pantone’s colors of the season. The color selection from Pantone this season has a really wide range of both cool and warm tones. We are seeing gorgeous pops of colors this season in sweaters, bags, and jackets. I really love bright pops of color in the fall and winter, it helps to get us out of our gray and black winter clothes rut.

My absolute favorite color in the Pantone Fall 2017 collection is Autumn Maple. I purchased a pair of Sam Edelman booties in this color and have been getting so many compliments. It is a perfect fall earthy shade with a dash of a cinnamon. It is a great neutral that will go with everything, however, it’s not your basic brown color that everyone has.

So before hitting the stores this weekend check out my favorite bags in Pantone’s Fall 2017 colors. Although this blog is little later than I usually post, it’s just in time for the holiday season! 😉

Handbags in Pantone’s Spring 2017 Colors

It’s almost time to pack up your salt covered snowboots and your marshmallow winter coats  – March 20, 2017 is near. Who am I kidding, we had just about the most mild winter that I can remember here in Chicago. Which, I am not going to lie, I was disappointed by the lack of freezing days where my new Canada Goose jacket would be appropriate attire. On a more sunny note, spring is near and it is time to ring in a new season The Girl & The Bag style with my favorite blog post – Handbags in Pantone’s Spring 2017 colors.

For this years handbags in pantone’s spring colors I tried really hard to incorporate a lot of really unique pieces, whether they be a unique shape, a playful style, or just a designer that I don’t typically gravitate to. In 2017, I am trying to be more experimental in my style and trying to get out of my comfort zone. Pantone’s Spring 2017 color palette is bright and playful. The palette for me evokes feelings of a happy and sun soaked vacation. Primrose Yellow and Pink Yarrow are easily my two favorites in this palette. I love the transformation of bold bright colors in comparison to the cooltone pastels we have been seeing a lot of in the past seasons.
