The Perfect Spring Bag

When you live somewhere cold, spring takes on a whole new meaning. It’s not just warmer weather, flowers and sunshine. No, it’s the rebirth of your social life and the awakening of a city that’s been hidden by snow, grey and gloom for months. Out of the blue, sidewalk cafes pop-up, roof-top pools and bars open up, the lakeshore path is crowded with joggers and the parks are filled with families out with their kids and dogs. Suddenly after months of hibernation, all feels right in the world again. And, Chicagoans know how to take advantage!

I have a little tradition every spring that I love. I spend an afternoon emptying my drawers and switching out my sweaters and boots for dresses, sleeveless tops and brighter colors. It’s also one of my favorite times to do a wardrobe refresh! I have to admit, that there’s usually a few weeks where I’m digging under my bed for a sweater when the random cool front or blizzard hits, but making the switch gets my mind prepped and excited for new beginnings.

Since we had some travel planned, I started my spring shopping early and grabbed a few new pieces that I’m obsessed with. One of them being this vibrant blue dress (just sold out, similar ones linked below), and another being this adorable blush pink bag!

This bag is from Welden, a brand you guys already know I love. I already own three of their bags (seen here, here & here) and I’m happy to continue my collection! I love their classic styling and unique woven hexagon pattern on the each bag. They just launched their latest collection AND Welden is now available at Nordstrom, one of my favorite places to shop. Sweet, feminine, and totally functional—I think it’s safe to say I’ve found my new spring bag. I love cross body bags best of all and the size of this one is seriously perfect!

Another thing I love about this pink bag is that it’s so versatile! Yes, it’s pink, but it’s light and will go perfectly with so many simple outfits. In fact, it’ll be the piece that pulls the whole look together. I love color and I can already tell you that this outfit will be worn numerous times this spring and summer. Now it’s just a waiting game until my favorite outdoor spots like Big Star, Division Street and Parson’s open their patios again!

Do you do a wardrobe refresh at the beginning of spring? Which of Welden’s new bags is your favorite?

BTW, a different way to wear denim, and San Francisco dreaming.

Thanks to Welden, a brand I love and trust, for sponsoring this post! Partnerships like this make The Fox & She possible!
