Spring is all about light and airiness and letting go of your Winter baggage. Quite literally.

The Spring months give us a fresh start to bring our best selves forward. What better way to celebrate than with a new bag! (or 3)

Why Smaller Is Better

Sometimes amazing things come from smaller things, and a mini bag is definitely one of those things. Tiny bags are great because:

  • there's only so much you can fit into them aka your shoulder, neck, and arm will thank you later
  • they take up less space, so wherever you are, whatever you're doing, you won't feel bogged down by your purse
  • it's a neater look, sometimes big bags tend to look messy, and because they're so big, your precious things inside get crushed and jumbled - with a mini purse you won't have these crippling issues

See by Chloé

Chloe's little sister, See by Chloé, is a designer label that actually has affordably priced handbags. Each bag seen below is under $350 and you can be 110% sure that you're getting high quality leathers and other materials with this designer brand.

Wear this silver See by Chloé mini metallic leather crossbody with skinny jeans, a silk blouse, and heels or wear it with a simple jeans and tee look. It's as versatile as it is pretty.

This deliciously pink leather mini handbag is the epitome of Spring feels. We get joy just by looking at it! Wear this ardent pink mini with your favorite dress or skirt look. And if pink's not your thing, think again and give this a try. It's good to get out of your comfort zone, and we bet this will be your new go-to bag.

Styling Tip: if you like to wear black in the Spring and Summer definitely go for this pink purse. It brings a pop of color to your look and won't make your outfit feel harsh. We tested it and it looks amazingggg against black, so there are really no excuses at this point.

The 3rd See by Chloé bag we're featuring is this stunning yellow kriss mini bag. Shaped in a half moon silhouette, there's nothing boring about it. You can actually wear this bag around your waist if you like, or you can wear it normally over the shoulder/crossbody.

We picture this worn around the waist against a black dress. See, who says you can't wear black in the Spring? Add a light pink color to your nails and some natural blush and you're totally set.
