Summer has finally arrived, and if you're like me, with the warmer temperatures, comes a desire to lighten-up your sartorial game. One great way to incorporate a sense of lightness into your look is with pastels. Lucky for us, this season boasts quite a few pastel handbag offerings. We've taken a look at some of summer's new bags and picked two of our favorites that we think will not only serve you well this season, but into the future as well!
The Elizabeth and James Zoe Saddle Bag — starting at $395
This simple saddle bag has everything you love about the past few season's pared-down yet luxurious bags at a price that we can all get behind. The clean lines, polished minimal hardware, and adjustable strap are reminiscent of some of Chloe's more popular offerings from recent seasons, and its wear-with-everything appeal will definitely make it one of your summer go-to accessories.
The Pedro Garcia Saddle Bag — $495
This smallish (it's approximately 5” x 7”) monochromatic leather saddle bag is the very essence of pared-down luxury. Crafted from smooth leather, there is no visible hardware on the bag, and the strap is adjustable so that it can be comfortably worn either as a shoulder bag or cross-body. The single-leather tone of the bag will lend itself well to normal wear and tear, and we think that in a few years’ time, this beauty might even look better than it did the day you bought it.
