Summer was thrust upon the Northwest unexpectantly a couple of weeks ago. "But it's May", you say, "Shouldn't you be ready for summer by now?". I reply with laughter. Portland likes to keep things weird. Even the weather. So you can imagine my frustration when I realize my (very much loved) royal purple suede bucket bag just won't do for summer.
Frustration quickly turned into excitement as I realized a shopping excursion was needed. (the word "needed" is definitely appropriate in this situation, and is in fact necessary to make my case to Husband.) I knew I wanted something small (my back needs a break) fun (hello! It's me.) and bright (it is spring after all), and preferably pink (neon). I found the perfect clutch. Perfect.
Only one problem. Way out of my price range. Let's say my price range is Oregon. Well this bag was a distant star in a faraway galaxy. Whatever am I to do? H&M to the rescue!
Love at first sight.
Ready for summer at last.
