Spring Break, warmer weather, and spring are almost here as February comes to a close and March begins. When experiencing cabin fever, I like to start planning my warmer weather trips and spring fun, then shop for it! Minneapolis hit 40 today on the thermometer and sent me into a handbag search for something fun with a spring feel. I wasn’t expecting to stumble upon the Austin Shopper from Fossil ($148) but am so glad I did!
Fossil brings us a great line-up with the entire Austin Handbag Collection (bags, wallets, wristlets, clutches, and phone accessories) but the Shopper bag stuck out the most to me. Grey and white stripes create a nautical look on the canvas while two leather straps and a tab attractively accent the bag. The inside has two media pockets perfect for both the work and personal cell phone, or one to stash your keys in for easy access. Still in class? The Austin Shopper stands 12” tall and roomy enough to carry your books. Headed off to the office? Laptop and binders will be right at your side. Running errands? Tab closure makes it easy to reach your wallet for a quick run through Starbucks. Vacation? Perfect for the iPad, sandals, and sunscreen. The light color of the bag makes it versatile and ready for any outfit.
