Spring Handbags: Splurge & Steal
Last week, I proclaimed my distaste for winter. Spring cannot come soon enough, am I right? Since you can’t put on your sundresses or sandals just yet (unless you live in California or something), the trick is to find other ways to introduce spring into your wardrobe. What is easier than swapping out your black or brown bag with a brightly-colored one? I’ve included both “splurge” and “steal” versions of the bags to fit your personal budget. Which spring handbag is your favorite?

I am in LOVE with the yellow splurge bag, it’s gorgeous! x
I love the “steal” bags! Especially Green & Pink ones! 🙂
You are SO right! Winter sucks and I need a bright bag in my life! Definitely feeling inspired to make a purchase (thanks alot haha)
I love colorful bag and I really love, wait! I Iove all of them the TB and RM bags are so cute. But I think I might invest in a pinksatchel this year. We’ll see. Cute selection Rach.
I think I actually like the steal bags a lot better – especially the two from Modcloth!
I know, when I was making the collage I thought the Modcloth ones looked just as expensive (aka high quality) as the splurge ones!
Loving these bright colored bags! I especially love the yellow TB one. Have a great weekend Rachel!
I am absolutely in LOVE with that Rebecca Minkoff bag, but probably won’t spend that much on a handbag for awhile 😉 I am loving those Modcloth bags!
me too- I just bought a mint bag for $20 that looks like a high-end one. STEAL!
I’m kind of obsessed with the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag. That color is amazing. I love the ModCloth bag too though!
I want one of the RM ones so badly! Too bad my birthday/xmas is like 10 months away and it would be my only gift- haha!
I want a Mini MAC bag so badly, sigh. The steal bags are all really cute too though, especially that Kate Spade one!
me too- sigh is right!
I want all of these hangbag! The colors are so gorgeous!
What fun options! The steals are just as lovely as the splurges!
ooo, what fun bright colors! Makes me so excited for Spring. I totally agree. The steals are almost better looking than the splurges. Have a great weekend Rachel. Much love.
I want a new handbag so badly. It’s been well over a year since I’ve purchased one. I think I’m way overdue! I’d really love the TB Robinson…
I’ve had the same basic one for a while, I tend to buy cheap brightly-colored ones since I only wear them sparingly
Love all the bright colors – I usually play things safe with neutrals but I’m really craving a bold bag right now! The hot pink mini MAC is my fave but I also love that blue modcloth bag!
same here- I invest in neutrals and save on colors!
I’m loving all of the bright colors!! I think I need that yellow tory bag!
Love this post! I need to get my hands on some of those steals!
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
Love these bags! Especially the lime green one! Target has some that are similar but I LOVE your suggestions!
aw thanks Sara!
Love them all! So adorable!
I’m totally in the market for a new bright colored spring bag. It’s been so hard trying to choose just one. I love ALL OF THESE!
I can definitely see myself rocking that orange Michael Kors bag 😉
I love the purple splurge bag, but both of the Modcloth steal bags are awesome too!
Ooh, I love that Tory Burch bag!
I will take one of each, please!! Great bright choices!
i am with you… SO ready for spring!! great round-up, lady! i’ve had a minkoff on my wish list forever, so i have to go with that.
I’m loving all the neon!! I’m SO ready for spring! Great picks
How did you know? I’ve been thinking of picking up a bright little crossbody bag lately too. I’m loving the elly Green quilted bag.
I think that i like the “steal” items more! They are just so much more my style!
I’m loving the neon handbag trend, and think they are the perfect pop of color! loving the steal section too 😉
Ohhh so in love with these bright handbags!
I have such a problem with loving expensive bags…but I’ve sure you already knew that after my last post! I’m so in love with that hot pink Mini MAC bag and love the turquoise quilted Kate Spade bag! Love your picks for steals!
haha yes! I want the RM bag so badly, but they are pricey!
Loving all these bags! I need some bright colored purses in my life ASAP 🙂
The steal ones aren’t bad either. Love your picks. The bold colors are truly perfect for spring!
