Friday Favorites: Spring Bags Under $100

Friday Favorites: Spring Bags Under $100

Despite the fact that some April showers have descended upon us this week, I'm still in the process of transitioning my closet from winter to spring.  Although I did see an image on Facebook the other day that made me laugh, with the caption: "We're experiencing a new season: 'Sprinter.'  Winter weather in spring."  Though I won't wear a tank top if it's only 50 degrees outside, I will still go by the calendar and lighten my wardrobe and accessories.  Here I've rounded up some of my favorite bags for spring, all under $100.

The Perfect Weekend Combo

This is a sponsored post - all opinions are my own.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.  My husband worked both days, so it was mostly me and my little guy for the bulk of it, which is great, because he's one of my favorite people to spend time with. :)  It's not news to any other mother when I say that becoming a mom has been the most amazing yet hardest thing I have ever done.   My little guy is now 2 and some months, and every day there is a new wonder and accomplishment.  His sentences are getting longer, his comprehension more elaborate, his emotions and thoughts more complex.  He challenges me to be a better person because kids learn the best by example, and so I'm trying to behave (at least around him ;) ) like the person I want him to be.

Last year we were attending a friend's 30th birthday party at a trampoline park (yes, you read that right: 30th birthday at a trampoline park.

Polka-dot Dress Perfect for a Summer BBQ

Do you ever have those days where you think it's a day different than it is? Like it's a Monday and you think it's a Tuesday?  I usually have that happen with Thursday and Friday, thinking Thursday is Friday. That's always a bummer when you realize your error.  But this week it happened to me on Monday. I was thinking Monday was Tuesday, and if you follow me on Instagram you were teased that this look was coming here yesterday (and if you don't follow me, I'd love to have you!)  Sorry about that!  But here it is now!

Friday Favorites - H&M 20% Off through Sunday

Friday Favorites - H&M 20% Off through Sunday

H&M is one of my favorite places to pick up affordable and on trend seasonal pieces.  They're good for some basics too.  I remember before they had come to the west coast, and weren't available online yet. I used to see their items featured in fashion magazines (of course paired with other items multiple times more expensive) and wished I could shop their collections.  Now there's a location walking distance from home, and their website has even more.  The best time to shop is when they are offering a discount AND free shipping, which is going on now through Sunday. Use code: 3373 at checkout.
