Spring Bags (and some Fall Holdovers)

Aren't you tired of fashion's conventional wisdom?

Don't wear black with brown. No white after Labor Day. Stick to one texture. Your belt must match your shoes. Flannel is for lumberjacks.

These fashion "don'ts" are now the biggest DOs of the season!

When shopping for bags this spring remember that the old rules no longer apply. A lot of women pigeonhole themselves when looking for spring bags. Some think that their bag must be light colored, bright colored, no greys or browns. Says who? Yes, generally, as the seasons change the fashions do brighten up, but you can still integrate some of your favorite fall bags into your spring wardrobe.

Here are my favorite Lori's spring pieces as well as those from fall that may continue on active duty:

Will Leather Goods Lancaster Messenger available at Loris
The Lancaster bag is definitely ready for spring. The olive canvas and brown leather look great together and won’t clash with your wardrobe The mixed textures and rustic look give this bag a functional Americana vibe that we love. Tote your laptop or get kitted out for fieldwork!

Mushroom by Oryany

Oryany bags have exceptional quality and the hardware is sturdy and unique. The two-tone color of the Mushroom is neutral and right on trend.

Melie Bianco

Grey was huge this fall. This Melie Bianco bag is a great example of one that can easily transition into spring. Note the tassels—another huge trend this season.

Chocolate by Oryany
Another Oryany bag, I love the shape and the carrying options provided. Use the top handles to carry i like a tote or fold it in half for a floppy under-shoulder clutch, or simply leave the hands out of it with a cross-body strap.

Pink by Sondra Roberts
This Sondra Roberts clutch is the definition of femininity.  It has been one of my favorite bags for a long time!  The pink has spring written all over it!  It is also available in purple, black, ivory and taupe.
Whiting & Davis

The white shimmer in this gorgeous clutch makes it a perfect companion to just about any outfit!
Ricky Designs
This ethnic piece by Ricky Designs is one of kind and sure to cause a stir! Wear it with a brightly colored dress or go neutral and add it for a pop of color.
